“Great weekend stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Just returned from a weekend here with "Just Go Tours". Hotel better than expected, recently decorated, food of good quality & well presented. Hotel & rooms very clean, our room was cleaned & restocked with coffee etc whilst we were having breakfast- never come across this speed before! Entertainment also excellent.
Minor niggle, would prefer a duvet.
Would definately return & would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is fantastic.Rooms were very spacious and clean.Food was wonderful homemade cooking really enjoyed it.Thankyou you all for making our weekend trip to the Isle Wight very nice.
Even the packed lunch we bought was very good.Not far to walk to the beach and lots of buses if you need to travel to different towns.

Room Tip: The family rooms very lovely

Spent a long weekend at the Riviera Hotel. The hotel is very pleasant and the rooms are comfy. the food appeared to be home-cooked and was very good.Bar area was delightful with entertainment scheduled for each evening. Hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. I do not understand why the hotel is rated as a 2 star only.

Spent five days at this Hotel on a coach trip. The owners and staff were extremely pleasant and very efficient. Everywhere was spotless and the food excellent. We were on a Tinsel and Turkey break, the decorations were beautiful and the entertainment first class.

Room Tip: No lift so if unable to use stairs ask for a ground floor room.

Returned today from a 4 day break with Travelstyletours...the hotel was spotless, our room was small but with all our needs, the food was excellent and we must say we ate every bit ...we had no problems whatsoever and can't find any fault.. if we wanted to nit pick the entertainment was only on the Saturday and it was a disco, but you can use the Channel View Hotel which is directly next door, we didn't as we sat with other couples we met and had a chat .....would I use this hotel again most certainly ..........

Room Tip: we requested a low floor which we got but I heard no complaints ....
