Usually I don't like to write negative reviews but I feel like i should warn other brides that are thinking of using this Venue, especially as I ignored the comments I was given and stayed optimistic that it would be better for ours.... how wrong i was!! I found the wedding planner there so helpful, from initial viewing of the... More

I have been to a few weddings here over the last few years and they have been very poorly managed to say the least but the last wedding I attended in June 2016 was by far the worst!! The hotel is set in a stunning location with magical views but the staff have no idea what they are doing when... More

The Riviera is a former Pontins site. Apparently I was in one of the recently refurbished rooms? That have me some comfort that I wasn't in an even worse room! Bathroom smell reminded me of the smell at university when 5 boys shared a house. Barely single glazed. Could hear the room next doors TV as if it was on... More

We were guests at a wedding here last month. This hotel has a beautiful view across Weymouth bay but in our experience that is the only redeeming feature. The service on the day was poor with only 3 staff serving 100 guests. There were several children attending the wedding and the bride and groom had thought hard to ensure planned... More

We stayed for one night and thought it was pretty good value for money. The outside of the hotel looks a little tired and the woman who checked us in seemed a little tense but overall we liked it and would stay again. We had a room on the front first floor, which had a stunning view of the bay!... More

On arriving at this hotel, I had been expecting the worse and it wasn't that bad, although it is very dated and in need of a coat of paint. However, once we went inside, the decor was good but we were most impressed with the service. The man who checked us in, think he might have been called Gary, the... More

This hotel dates from 1937 and it shows. The closer you drive the more dilapidated it looks, It definitely needs painting on the outside, The grounds are in a right state. They could be amazing with some care taken there are a lot of benches but what are not covered in mould are rotten. The rooms are very small, were... More
