We stayed at the Riviera 2 years ago and decided to return for a 3 night break as we like the area of Weymouth/Poole etc so much.
The room was very modern in décor and furnishing but the bed was very, very creaky ,and had a tendency to make you feel as though you were rolling to the middle ! The shower head is probably in need of a good clean or even replacing as it sprayed in many directions , and if the angle was not corrected it would soak the floor. With the toilet roll being stored on the top of the cistern (no holder on the wall ? ) Our room was number 141, situated in the rear building, and I would say that the whole building is in need of a paint over. Much peeling paint everywhere and just looks scruffy, along with the main building on closer inspection. But it was quiet at night.
Staff at check in and in the restaurant at breakfast were very friendly, but I would have liked to have been served quicker when using the bar every time I wanted a drink.( Staff waiting on tables as well as tending the bar ) .And maybe the fact that a function was being catered for in the upstairs ballroom ?
One small criticism on a personal note...a little entertainment would have been welcome. ie a singer of some sort .
All in all the place has a good atmosphere with helpful and friendly staff and we would stay there again.
ps. The choice at breakfast is excellent. Cereals, toast yogurt, fruit juices , tea and coffee. Eggs, back bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, tomatoes, hash browns and the sausages are the best ones I personally have tasted in a hotel.
