Staff and owners very friendly and welcoming. Brilliant views of the sea , the room was very well decorated, clean and tidy. The breakfast was one of the nicest and being a vegetarian there was a huge choice. Parking was no problem.Cant fault this brilliant place.

We have stayed at the "Riviera Guest House" many times. Each time is better than the previous! Zeb and Emma keep updating things to cater for ever changing tastes without spoiling the lovely family welcome and stay!
