Hotel's Favourite
Great hotel, excellent service from reception staff to bar and waitress services. Everyone really helpful and nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious and we also had a lovely meal in the restaurant which has beautiful views across the sea. We tried out the pizza's which were huge and so tasty we ended up having them two nights in a row to rty different ones. What we couldn't manage they put in a box for us to take away. The pool was great and we had fun due to pre booking which was easy to do it was never busy. Would definitely return as great beach and easy to get to Bournemouth and surrounding places.

We stayed for a week at the Riviera and enjoyed our stay. The staff were particularly helpful especially David in Reception. He was very polite and an asset to the Riviera. He carried our heavy suitcases up 2 flights of stairs with ease ! We had a nice meal in the restaurant on Sunday evening. Again very enjoyable. The bar was very relaxing.
