“Lovely break, comfortable hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Everything you need especially when the sun is out- pool a bonus in a sun trap. Wonderful, helpful hosts and a lovely breakfast with everything you could want, cooked to your specification. Excellent value for money!

Riviera Lodge is a fantastic Hotel run by wonderful hosts, lee and Carlston. Have been going there every year now for around 7 years and have no desire to go any where else in Torquay. It is immacutlately clean throughout from the rooms to the patio area. All the staff are very friendly and the food is delicious, do recommend lee's Steaks! Will definitely be going back at some point this year.

A very professional set up at the Riviera Lodge Hotel, everywhere was perfectly decorated, very clean and furnished to a high standard. The owners were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We wanted a place where there was evening meals and their restaurant in the conservatory did not disappoint, overlooking the front garden and pool area; fortunately the weather was good and it was nice to sit in the front garden and enjoy a drink before dinner. The food was first class and worthy of a five star rating, superb selection and beautifully presented.
The hotel is perfectly located, 4 minutes to get to the sea front and five minutes to the center of the town. There was good parking and full WiFi facilities which was welcome. All in all a very comfortable hotel where we will return many times. Bill & Liz from York.

We stayed 4 nights, bed and breakfast, in the middle of May.

The hotel is a fully modernised, large Victorian house with a swimming pool and a car park. It is situated about 10 minutes' walk from the town centre.

Carsten and Lee made us very welcome. They manage the hotel in an efficient, professional and friendly manner.

The room (no. 10) was spacious and furnished in a sober but tasteful style. It was impeccably clean. The modern bathroom, with shower only, was small but quite adequate. The breakfast room and the dining room overlooking the swimming pool were bright and pleasant.

Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The buffet selection was particularly good with fresh fruit, yoghourts, croissants, etc. There was a fine choice of cooked dishes.

The service, from arrival to departure, was most friendly and with a personal touch.

At £97 per night B and B for two people, we found it good value and we have no hesitation in recommending the Riviera Lodge for holidays or business.

Friendly welcome. Hotel cleanliness was of a high standard throughout the whole hotel. Breakfast was well presented, tasty and plentiful. The hosts were attentive, friendly, but never over bearing. The bar area is well thought-out and prices were more than reasonable. The patio/pool area is lovely to relax in. We had the compact double room, which again was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable and the en-suite again clean with all the shampoos, conditioners and soaps supplied. a 15 minute walk into the main area for Torquay made it an ideal location.

the question that always sums a hotel & experience up for me is "Would you stay there again?"

YES without doubt! I took several of their business cards and didn't have any reservation in handing them out with a recommendation to friends and colleagues.

Great value for money!

Just returned from a two night break at the 'Riviera Lodge Hotel' and can only join the many others who have enjoyed this 'Gem' of a hotel. The hotel is spotless, the hosts very helpful and friendly, the breakfast is superb and the bed is possibly the most comfortable we have ever slept in. Will definitely be returning!!

We were recommended to stay in this excellent hotel by a friend who lives in Torquay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the hotel is very clean and well run with impressive attention to detail in all areas. The food is excellent and the bar and pool areas are very comfortable and a pleasure to relax in. Carston & Lee are brilliant hosts and do everything they can to make the stay pleasurable. There was nothing we could fault, we would certainly stay here again. Great holiday!!
