Booked for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday, accompanied by our neice and partner. On arrival we were welcomed by the maitre de, and although not guests in the hotel we were made to feel very much at home.

We went to this hotel in March for afternoon tea and scones. The lounge was very well decorated, excellent service with warm crusty scones (cream and jam) and tea. An ideal place to go on an afternoon when you want some luxury.

We stayed here for two nights over new year and really enjoyed it. I agree with another reviewer, this hotel is absolutely spotless, the housekeeping first class. Food and service excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The Wharton family are excellent hosts and were very welcoming. Our room was furnished and decorated to a high standard, large and commanded an...

I reviewed the hotel restaurant last year and my party of seven cricket fans returned again for another delightful lunch chosen from the seasonal menu.The quality of the food and service is second to none and the whole party left replete and happy.Perhaps the only disappointment is the absence of other diners (only four) in what may appear an expensive...

We visited on Sunday for high tea. We sat at a bay window overlooking the esplanade. We were served by the lovely David who gave exemplary service...it was lovely to chat with him too. The food (especially the cakes) were wonderful. From the little we saw, the hotel was spotlessly clean. Yes, it is old-fashioned but this is all part...

Initial impression were good with the Hotel Riviera as apart from the dated décor, this hotel is clean and by that I mean super clean. Our room was probably the cleanest hotel room we ever had and we stay in some of the very best hotel in the World so this is high praise. The disappointing thing is that the...

Good food, attentive staff, good location (our room overlooked the sea front), clean room, and convenient car parking (if paid for). However, for a couple (price is per person), this is an expensive hotel, and there is no air conditioning or double/secondary glazing, which might be expected for this price. We were woken in the middle of the night by...
