“Not Faulty at all!”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

I spent four nights at the Riviera Lodge and found it perfect for my needs.

I needed a good, comfortable clean room.
I needed attentive and courteous service from the hosts.
I needed good value for money
I needed a hotel not too far from the seafront and other amenities.
I needed well cooked food.
I didn't need a swimming pool (I can't swim), but they provided one anyway

I would recommend the Riveira Lodge Hotel as clean and comfortable accomodation

We have recently stayed at this excellent hotel for a week as a base for touring the Torquay area. Lee and Carsten were excellent hosts and the hotel was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and we had a meal in the hotel on the first night which was also very good. The decor was also excellent and the swimming pool was an added bonus - although we didn't use it.
Our standard bedroom had everything in it that we required and the hosts even provided a fan on our request which came in very useful. The bed was also very comfortable. All in all, we couldn't fault the hotel, which was much more than a B&B, and would certainly consider returning when we are next in Torquay.

My wife and I had decided to visit Torquay where we had honeymooned 30 years ago, but unfortunately the hotel where we had stayed had gone out of business. And we selected the Riviera Lodge based on the reviews on trip advisor and were somewhat concerned at a recent posting which painted the hotel in a less than favourable light.

We need not have worried as the thoughts of the majority of visitors which gave the hotel very positive reviews were the ones that counted as well as the official 4 star rating for guest accommodation.

On arrival we were given a warm welcome and everything we needed to know was explained, finding a space in the car park was not a problem. We opted for a premium room which was comfortably furnished and was exceptionally clean, the extra seating space is well worth the small additional premium, although the bed was a little hard we had no trouble sleeping and heard no noise from other residents even though the hotel was full.

Bed linen and towels were of good quality and the daily clean of the room was to a high standard. Although we did not use the minibar I must say that the costs of the refreshments in the minibar are not at the rip off prices when compared to many other hotels where we have stayed, well done Riviera Lodge!

We had breakfast on each of the days we stayed and not only was service extremely effective but the use of fresh food served made the breakfasts really enjoyable and at no time did their appear to be a shortage of anything that we requested. We did not dine at the hotel in the evenings as we prefer to be free to have a full day out to do as we please without the need to hurry back to eat, but if the standard achieved at breakfast is mirrored in the evening we would have had no concerns about eating there.

It is evident that Lee and Carsten have invested heavily to deliver a quality product and we were fortunate to have benefitted from their outlay and would recommend this as an ideal place to stay in Torquay which is within walking distance of most places a tourist would wish to visit.

We would happily return as would most of the guests as their comments in the visitors book echo our very positive experience. The Hotel Inspector would struggle to find anything to complain about!

And for Lee and Carsten the hotel is a credit to you both and your staff - You can't please all of the people all of the time - We enjoyed our stay - Thanks

We stayed at the Riviera Lodge Hotel in August 2009 for two nights.
The hotel is centrally located but nevertheless quiet.

The room we stayed in was recently refurbished as the rest of the hotel. Everything has a very charming personal touch of high standard.

The two owners are very attentive and support you with good recommendations for sights, trips or restaurants. However, dinner is also optional at the hotel and of excellent quality.

The breakfast was cooked to order, fresh and delicious with lots of options.

There is even an outdoor swimming pool in the lovely little garden.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from a 4 night break at this brilliant hotel. We could not find anything to fault. Lovely location, quiet, within walking distance of the Torquay Town centre, Hotel had ample car parking space. Breakfasts were outstanding and were freshly cooked to a high quality you must try the porridge. We had dinner at the hotel on the Sunday & Wednesday night. The food was most excellent I would go as far as saying it was one of the nicest meals we have ever had
Carsten and Lee made sure nothing was too much trouble, the lounge was very comfortable with lovely views of the garden and swimming pool all the guests shared the same feelings as us and everybody was impressed making for a great atmosphere. We will definitely be returning.
