    Brilliant as always 👌

    When we arrived we were upgraded to a apartment and it was quite, roomy, and had its own little kitchen which was spotless and clean. We have stayed here several times and never had a bad experience thats why we always go back.

    Nice hotel and staff well located for beach

    Just stayed at Riviera Hot & Apartments and found it to be a very nice Hotel 5-10 mins walk to the beach. A 15-20 minutes walk to loads of eateries at Westbourne The Hotel was geared up for COVID but still felt fine, food all good with restaurant overlooking the sea Staff helpful and friendly We will be back

    Escapade in Bournemouth...

    Location of this hotel on the quiet end of the Bournemouth beach and friendliness of staff is just amazing. The room we were given was clean and functional but very dated and in need of a refurb. It seemed every floorboard creaked with every step and the noises from the next room (Snoring, Shower running etc..) were quite intrusive at times. The fact I spent little time in the room meant that it did not spoil my vacation. I would recommend this hotel overall, especially if it is just to rest your head at night mainly.

    Great location.

    Had a lovely few days at Riviera Hotel. Room was very clean and comfortable with a beautiful sea view. Very convenient for the beach. Would definitely have another holiday there.

    Great stay

    Excellent location for us with a 25min walk along the sea-front to Bournemouth Pier. Spotlessly clean room - felt very COVID secure. Room had a balcony facing South - lovely to be able to sit in the sun. Breakfast was leisurely, not quite the same as a buffet, but next best thing under the circumstances. All staff were friendly and helpful. The negatives were 1) Rubbish shower in the room - hardly any pressure 2) the door to our room was next to the room next door - thought someone was opening our door when the neighbours went into their room (and they did that a lot)
