“Excellent Hotel!”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

Good location, within walking distance to the beach and shops. Staff were really accommodating and very friendly. Lovely outdoor swimming pool. Very clean and well run hotel. We would definitely return for a visit.

Booked last minute and was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Room looked far better than in the pictures, clean and comfortable. Pool great. Only downside was room not ready till 6pm but staff and manager very apologetic.

Booked last minute for a working weekend - with the family.
First impressions - Parking a nightmare, but this was due to the Bournemouth Air Show that I didn't know was on!! They do have a good plan for parking, so if you are stuck, check at reception and you can leave your keys and block somebody in.
Room - we had an apartment and it was very large - a little tired in places but comfy none the less. Bar/restaurant - both fine. Breakfast very good and evening meal nice enough with great views of the air show over the beach.
Kids enjoyed the pool (indoor one - didn't get to try the outdoor)
Everybody seemed very nice and happy.
I would go back quite happily.

Got an apartment on short notice for a family holiday. Good location very close to the beach and walking distance to shops; apartment was spacious with adequate facilities, though the decor was getting old.

Staff at the Riviera are very polite and helpful. The restaurant offers lovely food at extremely reasonable prices. The facilities & entertainment are well organised and suitable for both adults and children. Only downside was small bedroom/bathroom - however these were very well cared for by the housekeeping team.

Reviewed 28 August 2014

When I first arrived as a solo traveller I was put into a very stuffy very small single room that was very claustrophic. But when I spoke to the Deputy Manager she without hesitation put me into a 1 bedroom apartment that was lovely. The views from the Conservatory Restraurant were spectacular! The staff were very friendly but I do think they need to review the bar prices as the drinks were very overpriced. Been coming here for 30years and have seen good and bad over the years but there is huge improvement and I look forward to going back soon.

A very nice stay at a well positioned hotel for easy access to beaches and town centre. Breakfast was a great experience with buffet hot food and friendly staff.
We had a sea view room with balcony.
Parking a little difficult but staff moved the cars if you had to block someone in.
