This was a Sunday lunch for three on a glorious sunny day. There is an outside seating area where apart from taking an aperitif you can have coffee snacks etc.I appreciated an ashtray being produced without requesting one which makes you feel welcome and not a criminal Nice choice of starters, some light ones with exotic fresh fruit for the...

We didn't stay here just stopped for a cream tea on the patio, the staff were first class and very very attentive, the hotel lobby and entrance was lovely. Located on the seafront with fantastic views. The young lady who served us was brilliant and deserves recognition from the owners as a brilliant ambassador for the hotel ( we were... More

Both my wife and I were so impressed with the hard work and dedication of the staff to ensure that the hotels normal high standards were maintained. We expressed our congratulations to the owners and asked them to be... More

On a recent visit to Sidmouth my wife and I decided to have tea at the Hotel Riviera. Not having booked we were warmly welcomed by an extremely friendly and polite waiter, whom we later discovered was called Rob. The attention was second to none throughout our tea and the quality of the food was excellent,fresh and very tasty. The... More

We had a wonderful time at the Riviera on Friday 26th August. We had booked for tea. My Dad was in a wheelchair and on arrival the staff were extremely accommodating when we asked if we could have a table on the Front Terrace. Once seated I asked the concierge if it would be possible to park at the hotel... More

When arriving at Hotel Riviera, you feel like a house guest rather than a hotel guest. At no time were we asked our room number and all of the staff, who were really helpful and polite, knew who we were. The rooms are beautifully decorated and it is obvious that they are refurbished regularly. We stayed in a deluxe room... More

Lovely traditional hotel in 100% location in Sidmouth. Michael the manager and his staff are very friendly and can't do enough. It is quite expensive compared to new modern hotels in major resorts however it's quite unique and charming with fantastic service which I guess is what you are paying for weighs sea view!

Everything you could wish for in an English seaside hotel. Totally faultless with the most professional of staff. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel or to stay here again myself or even to drive for miles just to have one more of those delicious crab sandwiches for lunch! Wonderful.

We have visited the hotel a couple of times for dinner. This time we spent a week there, second floor,sea view fantastic. Staff great, nothing too much trouble, unobtrusive but there when needed. Rooms great. I think a whole report could be written about the quality and variety of the food. We did not have one less than excellent meal.... More
