Having just returned (on Tuesday 17th June) from a hotel stay at the Riviera Hotel in Sandown, (went with Just Go Holidays, Coach Holidays), I/we my husband and myself can honestly say this is one of the nicest, cleanest, and above all, most excellent hotesl we have stayed in, in the U.K. The food is absolutely gorgeous, (as other reviewers have also pointed out), excellent home made soups, and deserts, and the main courses were wonderful, things like, beef stroganoff in brandy and cream, beef bourgione in red wine, fish meals, slow cooked steak with mash and vegetables, roast lamb and potatoes and vegetables, plus vegetarian and salads .The deserts were wonderful, and the chef is brilliant, in fact all the staff are very helpful, especially John the waiter, couldn't do enough for you, and Dennis the cleaner, what a great helpful guy he is. The entertainment in the hotel was first class,and the owners who run the place, a lovely helpful friendly couple can't do enough for you. The hotel is in the High Street in Sandown, a quiet part of the town, but only 3/4 minutes to the promenade and beach front, perfect location. You can catch a bus just outside the hotel, 2 mins walk down the road, the buses run every half hour to Shanklin, which is bigger town, it takes about 15mins to get there. I would defo recommend this hotel to anybody, and it should be 4* for the food alone. Thank you to "Just Go Holidays" (coach holidays) for taking us there, what a "great find" this hotel is. Thank you all at the Riviera, wonderful stay.
