Perfect location a few minutes from Alum Chine and the seafront. A good stay, pleasant breakfast staff, good breakfast - though veggie sausages would be welcome for vegans and vegetarians. I didn't use the leisure facilities. Bed and room comfortable, views from breakfast room lovely.

Riviera Hotel was in an excellent position in Alum Chine. Although our room was in an outside building reached by a lot of steps it was of a good size, very clean and quiet. The food and staff were excellent and the dining room had good views over the chine and sea. Our one problem concerned the water temperature which... More

Good location for the beach. Nice helpful and responsive staff. The room was OK, a bit small, and no A/C meaning it gets warm with the sun on it all day. Only one wall socket available for use in the whole room!

We have loved this place since our first ever visit.So much so we couldnt think of a better place to have our wedding, the staff are so friendly and accomodating and nothing is to much trouble. Any issues on our day were resolved quickly and efficiently. Superb location, excellent staff and a fantastic venue - we couldnt ask for more.

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 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
