Stopped for 2 nights over Easter. The hotel is situated out side of Weymouth towards Preston but is in a nice posisition on the side of a hill over looking the sea and the bay with Weymouth in the distance. We had standard rooms at the rear of the Hotel. The rooms had recently been redecorated and refurnished so they...

Just returned home after a Monday to Friday break at the Riviera. My wife and I traveled with our disabled Mum and 9 year old daughter, we had adjoining rooms upstairs with our smallish one, and Mum was downstairs in a very well equipped disabled room. My wife was panicking a little before we left home, having read some of...

We were moved to a bigger bedroom which had a bit less mould in shower but had damp all along the top of wall, damp and mould...

I had read the other reviews and yes I was concerned but i have learnt now to make my own decisions on my stay and take reviews with a pinch of salt. Yes this building needs a lick of paint. Yes the reception smells of cleaning fluid. But to be honest our room was fine for one night and believe...

The Ballroom smelt damp, it was refused as the layout was odd and not at all desirable with the stench. They did not have the relevant leads to display our presentation despite checking first, we had to source ourselves half an hour before start time! The hotel is very run down, grass unruly, glass unclean, pool and sun beds had...

I will keep this review short. For the price it is 100% not worth it. It has everything going for it, location, art deco building but it has some real fundamental issues. It seems no one takes any pride in the individual rooms. It doesn't take long to make sure the remote control doesn't have dust on it. The room...

Stayed at the Riviera Hotel for one night. I would say the hotel is not as bad as some of the other reviews I have read on trip advisor but could do a lot better. Pros: Nice location, nice indoor pool, has gym facilities (the gym was small and the machines were quite old but it was enough for a...
