“Worth a second visit”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

This is the second time that my husband and I have visited Hotel Dory for a one-week long biking holiday. We were joined by 20 friends who were avid cyclists! Our stories and photos from last year tempted them to try out Hotel Dory. This year, the hotel has added a fourth biking group called Bikeness. This group is well-suited to the more recreational biker but a word of caution, you still need to be prepared to be "in the saddle" for 4 to 5 hours and there are hills. The group does move to the pace of the riders and there are many opportunities to stop and enjoy the beautiful countryside. Once again, we experienced the hospitality of Stefano and his well-trained, and friendly staff. The visits to local farms for some wine trasting and wonderful food were highlights. This is a very picturesque part of Itlay and you do not need to be a cyclist to enjoy the pleasures of the area and the quality accommodation and services of this hotel.

Room Tip: We had the Feeling Suite...a wonderful view of the sea and very spacious accommodations.

My first time in Riccione. I travelled alone and had a wonderful time. The rides are great, well organised, and easy to find your level. And a fantastic pasta waiting for you when you get back! The staff are superb, and the ride leaders are even better. Brilliant location right in the middle of town.
Try an ice cream at Panna & Cioccolato, Via Lungorio in town.

I'm going back. Can't say more.

we arrived to hotel Dory after a few recommendation from freinds, but still didnt know what to expect.
this was our first time we cycle out of ISRAEL.
i cant tell how much fun we had! the hotel staff was amazing and helpful, the food was great, and of cours the rides!
we were worried at the begining because me and my husband r not at the same shape, but it was wonderful that the hotel has a few levels for the rides! we both found the suitable group for us (:
it was a great way to begin our honeymoon and also celebrate my birthday (:

We were part of a group of 11 couples that arrived separately to spend a week at the hotel for biking and relaxing. The hotel management went out of their way to make our experience a truly pleasant one. The buffet style food was included in our package as was wine and beer. The management purchased 4 e-bikes for those of us that were not enthusiastic bikers but yet wanted to accompany us on our bike trips. The surrounding scenery was spectacular. All in all this was a great experience for anybody that enjoys biking, sight seeing and generally having a good time. The facilities are first rate and the new rooms in the new building are everything one could ask for.

Kudos to the staff and management of the Hotel Dory

Room Tip: ask for the new building in back of the main building

My wife and I stayed at the Dory following the Tony Robbins seminar in Rimini. We stayed for 3 nights at their D Suites. The room was spacious and clean, the food was tasty and fresh and the biking was great as usual (not my first time there). I strongly recommend this hotel!!

I just came back from my 3rd year at Hotel Dory. I stayed at the new D-place and found it to be beautifully decorated, very comfortable with lots of light and had balconies on 2 sides! So many people I met continue to come back year after year, some for over 10 years. I met couples who have cycled all over Europe and they've all said Hotel Dory is the only place they choose now for their cycling holidays. The cycling tours are well organized and allow cyclists of all levels to bike comfortably yet still be challenged. All of the staff at the Dory are friendly and so hard working! The chefs are excellent with amazing food presentation and different tastes daily. The rental bicycles are top of the line and the overall price here is the most competitive compared to the other cycling hotels there! The guides are excellent, always smiling and willing to help. For cycling in Italy, choose Hotel Dory!!!

Room Tip: Stay in the new D-place!
