Have just returned from 4 nights at the Riviera Hotel. Good points, very friendly and helpful staff, extremely clean room. We booked because it was described as dog friendly, which it was but more information on hotel web site would have been useful. We were informed that we could not take our dog into the restaurant for breakfast but the... More

We had a room for 3 adults. Mum Dad and 15 year old son. It was a good room, with comfortable beds. I say this because a few years ago the beds were a little uncomfortable, but this seems to have been sorted out now I am pleased to say. Single bed was a 'proper' bed, not just a put... More

Overall, this is a nice, comfortable place to stay within a sensible, moderate budget. The staff are friendly and helpful though in a couple of cases I had to ask for service where it would simply be delivered in most hotels. I was staying there whilst doing a kite surfing course in Poole harbour. Location-wise it's ideal for the lovely... More

We booked a room at the Riviera because we needed a base as we were attending a wedding. We didn't therefore didn't intend to spend a lot of time at the hotel and weren't expecting a lot. Our room was fairly basic but clean and perfectly functional. There were several things such as noise from a wedding party, we could... More

Great swimming pool, clean well kept hotel. Pet friendly too which was great for our first trip away with our dog Rooms were lovel, although there was only one plug point in ours, which in this day and age simply isn't enough. Breakfasts were nice and the dining room has wonderful views.

Stayed here for two nights over the air show weekend. We had a room in the hotel which was clean and comfortable with a reasonable WiFi connection. The shower was o.k too with plenty of hot water and average pressure. I booked the room in January and overlooked an important fact. When we went down for breakfast on the first... More

The rooms are dated and need a good clean-up, beds are hard and the bathroom floor has a almost hole in it. The cleaners need to think about NOT blocking the hall ways when people that have paid alot of money for the weekend are leaving with bags and cases etc. also someone need to check the rooms are ready...
