A nice welcome and clean bedroom but it had a funny smell for the whole of our stay. Couldn't put my finger on it. Small room and bathroom but a nice little balcony with comfortable chairs to relax and take in the sea air and view. Not new and swanky but clean and comfortable.

The Riviera Hotel is a lovely place to stay. My room was very comfortable, and a good size. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The food is good and attractively presented. I have stayed for a weekend for a number of years and have always been completely satisfied. There is free internet access. Rooms either face the road which...

We enjoyed our Valentine night away. Took the dog for lots of lovely walks. Friendly staff and great location. Great for families with pool, table tennis, pool table. Will visit again. Central location means a flat walk into Bournemouth (once you are at the bottom of the chine!). Lots of restaurants within easy reach if you want to eat outside...

Booked an appartment for 3 night stay. Wish it had been more. The staff were friendly and helpful from the start. The apartment although doesn't look much from the outside was all we could have wanted. It was immaculate and modern inside With a very well equipped kitchen. The bar and restaurant in the main hotel was also very pleasing...

I've been to this hotel several times and always enjoyed my stay. Good food in the restaurant, comfortable rooms and have never had less than excellent service from the staff. The prices of the drinks in the bar and wine in the restaurant however is rather excessive. As an example it was over £10 for a pint of lager and...

We booked here and paid in advance for a sea view family room with balcony and on arrival were told this wasn't available and put in a standard family room with no explanation. We were given 50% off in the end after complaining but we're still really gutted!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am sorry that we were unable to allocate the room to you as you had booked. This was certainly a one-off and we were disappointed that we could not accommodate your request, hence the offer of a 50% discount. I am sorry to hear that you were not...
