“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We recently stayed at the Riviera Lodge Hotel for two nights with our teenage son and had the best short break ever!
Everywhere in the hotel was spotless and we felt instantly at home when we were greeted by the owner upon our arrival. We booked standard rooms and they were gorgeous - the cleanest crisp sheets, plump pillows and comfy beds ever found in any hotel stay!
The garden and pool were amazing and again very well looked after, we were lucky enough to have fine weather during our stay and made the most of the pool.
My only tip is - you MUST eat your evening meal here!! (book in the morning) we were served a fine home cooked meal of Lamb,Roast Potatoes and Vegetables followed by a selection of 3 different puddings all of which were absolutely gorgeous!
Needless to say we are currently planning our next trip to Riviera Lodge and cant wait to return!

We had a wonderful 5 nights at the Riviera Lodge, the staff were welcoming, informative and happy to accommodate our requests. We didn't want to leave.
We booked quite late so didn't manage to get a deluxe room but the standard was spotless and comfortable, it had everything we needed. It's situated in a good area, away from any noise. The swimming pool was an added bonus and we made good use of it.
What can we say about the breakfast...........the scrambled eggs were the best we have ever tasted, but I do advise to ask for a small portion if you don't have a huge appetite. There was a good selection on offer of both hot and cold food.
Carsten and Lee introduced us to Hendricks Gin and we thank you!
We would thoroughly recommend this Hotel to anyone looking for a fab place to stay in Torquay and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Book early and go for the deluxe.

As the title says:
Beautiful and relaxing.
The Hotel itself is stunning, extremely clean, well matched décor, and very peaceful.

The owners and staff were fantastic, always willing to help, very friendly and a mine of information for places to see, visit or eat.

Rooms are fantastic, spotlessly clean with little details that set this little Hotel apart from the larger Hotels.

Pool and terrace area are a welcome bonus and a great place to just chill with a drink from the bar. Especially after breakfast or in the evening.

Being just a short walk to beaches and harbour it is far enough away to be peaceful and quiet but not so far you can't walk.

Would recommend a stay in this Hotel and if I am passing that way again I wouldn't hesitate to stay.

Room Tip: Book the suite if possible or plausible. it's a delight!!!

What can I say? From start to finish this hotel is beautiful and so are the owners and staff. From the facilities, to the decor throughout, the food (the scrambled eggs OMG!), the service and the attention to detail in the finishings and thoughtful touches - everything was perfect. We knew it would be good from the other reviews but even then it exceeded our expectations, so glad we chose The Riviera Lodge, - you will not be dissapointed if you book here! Thankyou to Carsten and his crew we needed a really good holiday and thats exactly what we got!

Room Tip: We had room 4 and it was perfect

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Riviera Lodge with our two teenage boys. We thought the rooms were extremely comfortable, breakfast was of a good standard and the hotel also has a very nice bar/terrace area where you can enjoy a drink or two. However, the main thing I want to comment on is the friendliness off the owners. They were very welcoming, always had time for a chat and very helpful with advise on attractions to visit in the area.

We recently stayed at Riviera Lodge and were so happy with everything. The hotel is lovely with very clean rooms. The shower wasn't very powerful, but it was definitely not a big issue. The dining room and pool area are absolutely gorgeous. The customer service at The Riviera Lodge is nothing short of excellent. You can tell that the owners really take pride in the hotel and providing wonderful service - it really shows. The hotel itself is a short walk to the beach and town. We would definitely love to stay again and would recommend for those searching for a lovely place to stay in Torquay.

This is a warm & friendly hotel. Really good location close to the beach & park area. Nothing was too much trouble good advice on attractions & whats on. Excellent standards throughout.We booked last minute & it could not have been better. They have really got it just right with the attention to detail lovely furnishings throughout & a lovely feel to the place. Food was excellent & really good value for money with a really good choice & more than generous portion size could not eat it all.. Really relaxing weekend for us lovely out door space with small heated pool to cool off in . Just right . Will definitely book again . Thank you guys for your hospitality..B & S Davies
