Comfortable and clean, but shower poor, food edible but not much more, pleasant staff, toilet a bit dodgy and bar plays music until late at night. Rooms directly off reception can be noisy late at night and early morning

Just had weekend stay at the Riviera Hotel in Sandown, Isle of Wight. We found the food was first class and everything was home made and cooked to perfection. The quality of the food was obvious. The staff worked so hard and nothing was too much trouble for them. The bedroom was a little small and dated, blankets on the bed instead of a quilt, and the walls between the bedrooms were very thin, but everywhere was clean and tidy. All in all a very pleasant stay and hopefully we will be able to go back there one day.

had a weekend coach tour break at the riviera, lovely hotel, clean, good decor, first class service, nothing to much trouble.
first class food, with starters mains dessert and coffee. breakfast full english, cereal, juice, continental or any other variation that you want. just ask and if they can do it they will.
I need a gluten-free menu, and even though i never booked it, once they found out it was no trouble to arrange this for me.Don't get that sevice at some 4 star hotel, the staff at the riviera were friendly and so helpful.
entertainment was good also.
An excellent hotel and I would recommend it to anybody. i would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: rooms are ground floor,lower ground, first and second. no lifts, so if you bad on stairs ask for low...
