we've just got back from a long weekend at the Riviera Hotel and were pleasantly surprised with how nice it was for the cost.
we had a double, and a single room, both were clean and more that adequate as a base for exploring the island. The breakfasts were ok but the evening meals were really nice, especially the trout and salmon. We were more than prepared to eat out in the evening but never did once. The waiter was lovely and friendly, in fact all the staff were great. The rooms were clean and the bed quite comfy.
The hotel is in a great location, 5 minutes walk to the sea front; granted up hill, but then all of the isle of Wight seems to include hills so I don't think you'd get better in another hotel.
On the down side, the walls were very thin, leaving us able to hear every word of our neighbours nagging, and taking a shower was pot luck as to whether the water would stay the right temperature or not. The rooms were quite small, but nothing we didn't expect for the price we paid.
We booked with Travel style which offers cheap D, B & B deals so we knew we weren't booking a luxury holiday, but you get whet you pay for, and for the price we were all very impressed with the Hotel and would definitely return
