Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The location is perfect for both Bournemouth and Poole. Lovely beach and inside pool, clean changing rooms and friendly staff. Good bus services nearby in Westbourne. Car parking is limited in the evenings and the bar menu needs to be updated.

I stayed at this hotel many times as a child and always loved it . Fast forward 30+ years and we have just stayed at the Riviera with our two young daughters over the Easter holidays. The hotel is just as brilliant as I remembered and all the staff, without exception, were friendly and accommodating. Rooms are clean and the food (breakfast and dinner) was fabulous. Our daughters loved the games room and the indoor pool. The location of the hotel is in a super quiet area and very close to the beautiful Alum Chine. I would highly recommend the Riviera to travellers of all ages, couples and families. We’ll definitely be back. Loved it!

All the staff in as a whole were professional, efficient, warm and very friendly and worked very hard to provide a high standard of service. The room was very comfortable and the hotel catered to all the different needs/ages of my family from young to old.

The staff are very attentive and friendly. The breakfast is excellent, lots of choice. I have a dog and it is great that you can sit in bar and enjoy lunch or dinner with the dog. Very relaxing atmosphere. Nice walk to the beach and promenade where you can walk to Bournemouth or Sandbanks.

I love staying at this hotel, I come back a couple of times a year and found the staff all very friendly and accommodating. I even had a complimentary sea view and balcony as a returning guest! I was also upgraded to the honeymoon suite as it was available by a lovely gentleman on reception. Thank you again for a great weekend!
