“This little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Stayed at the Riviera Lodge Hotel for the second time. Karsten and Lee are wonderful hosts and really looked after me again. I had a friend with me who was staying for the first time and she would not hesitate to book the hotel again. The rooms are clean, comfortable, the breakfast is lovely and the evening meals are superb. Well done Lee!! Looking to stay again towards the end of the season so Karsten and Lee look out - I have already spread the word to friends! See you soon. xx

Room Tip: Book early but book directly with the Riviera as they offer some very good deals.

Booked this Hotel as it was near to the sea front and already had a good rating. The staff were helpful and friendly and the whole place has a touch of charm about it. Very comfortable, good breakfast, clean and comfortable. It also has a pool, bar and restaurant. I would certainly stay here again. Well done!!

I agree with all the previous comments. A group of 36 Rotarians and partners stayed for a conference from 21st - 23rd Mar 2014. The Hotel opened early in the season for us. Everything is immaculate,from the standard of decor to the wonderful food. Rooms are small but perfectly formed and very clean. The owners could not have done more to make our stay better. Ideally situated for the Riviera centre (10 min walk) and the promenade and harbour.The perfect place for rest and relaxation. Carsten and his partner are perfect hosts.

We stayed at the Riviera Lodge for 2 nights in September '13 when visiting our son. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was a delight. The rooms were spotless and the bed very comfortable. The seating area around the pool was well furnished and the garden laid out in a beautiful, understated way, perfect surroundings for an evening tipple before dinner!
There is a car park attached to the hotel which appeared to have enough spaces to cater for the guests.
The location is perfect to offer a quiet area whilst still being only a short walk from the town centre (although this is very hilly).
We would not hesitate in recommending this hotel and will certainly be visiting again next year.

The Riviera Lodge is an excellent hotel, staff are very friendly and extremely obliging, ensuring that you have a wonderful stay. The hotel is immaculately clean, has been decorated very tastefully and the rooms are spacious. Fantastic food, there is a great variety of hot and cold breakfasts. The restaurant is in the conservatory and provides a wonderful ambience to which to have you evening meal.

We recently stayed in the ground floor suite, which had its own entrance, with a small outdoor seating area. Room spacious and very clean, well planned and everything you could need for a comfortable stay.
Breakfast wonderful, good choice and well presented and cooked, coffee was good which is not always the case!!
Had dinner one evening, this is served in the conservatory overlooking the pool, lovely setting, nice menu and good value.
Overall a very clean, well presented hotel, small enough to have lovely personal service.

Room Tip: The ground floor suite is spacious and well laid out, didn't see any of the other rooms as the s...

Riviera Lodge is a gem - spotlessly clean. Tastefully decorated. Excellent cuisine and helpful, friendly staff. Our room was a tad on the small side but had everything needed for a great holiday- comfortable beds, lots of hot water, tea-making facilities, flat screen t.v. etc. etc.
The gardens are pleasant with a lovely swimming pool and plenty of sunbeds. Well worth a visit if visiting Torquay!
