We have just returned from four nights at The Riviera. The Discover Dorset deal was great value, check it out on their website. We had a lovely sea view room (210) which was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hotel is run very efficiently and has a very relaxed atmosphere. We used the indoor pool and jacuzzi several times which... More

We had a lovely stay at the riviera; enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi, staff were very friendly, breakfast was delicious and room was clean and comfortable if on the small side. We didn't have a great view of the road to the side but it was nice and quiet area and a nice walk along the beach to find decent... More

The staff at the Riviera are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. They kindly arranged for me to have an early breakfast every morning during my 3 week stay for business. The rooms are spotlessly clean and more than adequate for my needs. The facilities are great with an indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, and a choice... More

I booked a double room and was given an apartment which was pleasant but tired and in need of some TLC - I used the gym and swimming pool which were well equipment and I had them to myself. The residents were mainly older people on perhaps a coach holiday visiting the surrounding area - so don't expect a buzzing... More

Clean well presented hotel. Quality of food pretty good. There were issues in the restaurant, which were made more irritating by a lack of coordination. Maybe they are more used to dealing with coach parties rather than individual tastes. Was resolved, but could have been avoided. Dessert disappointing. However, staff efficient, perhaps a little over enthusiastic at times. The hotel... More

Another great stay. As usual, the staff were excellent and made all the difference. Excellent breakfast with so many choices. Evening meals delivered much better food than their simple descriptions on the menu.

We have stayed here several times over the past few years. It is a nice venue for functions. Bar, reception area and dining rooms are spacious and airy. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and work very hard to make every event go well. We were in an apartment this time, used as an overspill when hotel busy. Bedroom,... More

lovely room - comfortable - clean and well presented. Rooms are clearly signed so your room can be easily located. Tea and coffee replenished every day together with biscuits. Good toiletries in the bathroom which also has a bath and shower.

We booked to stay at the Riviera Hotel for a few days recently and having stayed there last year we knew that we wouldn't be dissapointed! Our room was cosy and warm with clean sheets and laid out amenities to a high standard. The en-suite bathroom and shower were very clean and functional and smelt fresh. We were very impressed...

We arrived late late at night without a reservation. Luckily the member of staff on duty helped us out. Great bloke. Nice apartment, all the facilities you need and close to some great beaches. The breakfast was the best I've tasted in a long time. Will definitely go back. Great value.
