A party of five booked this trip with Lesuretime Cardiff. The Riviera Hotel is an excellent base friendly management and staff. Very clean rooms with coffee and tea. The food is top notch homemade and a quick service. A bar lounge well decorated and comfortable with entertainment. Five minute walk to the sea and town centre.

Had a good weekend at this Hotel in March 2014.We were on a coach weekend provided by "Just Go" holidays. We were allocated room 17 on the second floor. There is no lift but if you can manage the 2 floors it's worth it. All 3 bedroom windows have a lovely sea view. The bedroom is quite small, as is the bathroom, but for the price we paid, it was clean and more than adequate.
The dining room was quite spacious and served delicious food with a pleasant waiter serving. There is a separate bar in a comfortable lounge. We had entertainment for 2 out of the 3 nights we stayed and people seemed to enjoy the acts. A short walk down a hill will take you to the front where the pier and beach is, which is then on the flat for some distance. You will need to walk up the same hill on returning to the Hotel. We managed it quite easily, but if you have a disability you may need to catch the bus.

Room Tip: Remember there are 2 floors and no lift so depending on your own circumstances you may need to reque...

Just returned from a weekend here with "Just Go Tours". Hotel better than expected, recently decorated, food of good quality & well presented. Hotel & rooms very clean, our room was cleaned & restocked with coffee etc whilst we were having breakfast- never come across this speed before! Entertainment also excellent.
Minor niggle, would prefer a duvet.
Would definately return & would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is fantastic.Rooms were very spacious and clean.Food was wonderful homemade cooking really enjoyed it.Thankyou you all for making our weekend trip to the Isle Wight very nice.
Even the packed lunch we bought was very good.Not far to walk to the beach and lots of buses if you need to travel to different towns.

Room Tip: The family rooms very lovely

Spent a long weekend at the Riviera Hotel. The hotel is very pleasant and the rooms are comfy. the food appeared to be home-cooked and was very good.Bar area was delightful with entertainment scheduled for each evening. Hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. I do not understand why the hotel is rated as a 2 star only.
