This year we took all the mothers on a special day lunch (the mothers ranged from 26 to 96). The staff were attentive but not overbearing, the food was delicious the surroundings were beautifully decoracted. In fact everything from start to finish was excellent. All our family were thoroughly please and we would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Good place for a special lunch.
Stayed: March 2018, travelled with family

We couldn't have asked for a better stay and nights sleep following a tiring hike up the Jurassic Coast. We booked last minuet so only stayed one night but we will certainly come back to The Riviera. The hotel has its own unique charm, the rooms are spacious with everything you need, breakfast was tasty and plentiful but what really stood out (apart from the beautiful sea views) were the staff. Everyone was so kind and attentive and the new management have put a great deal of care into ensuring their guests have a rememberable stay. Thank you for making our weekend away from London so relaxing!
