About the hotel

The Riviera Hotel is a well-known Art Deco Dorset landmark with a Grade II listing. The hotel has welcomed holidaymakers to its stunning location in Weymouth for over 70 years. The hotel is set just above Bowleaze Cove and offers fantastic views across the bay to Weymouth and Portland harbour, which hosted the sailing events during the Olympic Games in 2012.

The Riviera Hotel is only a short drive from the town centre and a regular bus service operates from outside the hotel in high season. Following a £3. 5 million refurbishment, all 98 en-suite chalet style rooms are decorated in a modern contemporary style with a flat screen TV, room safe and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel offers free parking and wi-fi access. The new Bowleaze Restaurant can seat up to 135 guests and the Riviera hotel can cater for any function from 10 - 300 guests. The Riviera has 2 bars and an indoor leisure centre with heated pool, gymnasium, sauna, steam room, and spa treatments are available. There is also an outside heated pool with sun terrace and sun loungers which is open during the high season.

Won't be booking again

We booked a standard room which I would describe as substandard.

It was really smelly. The receptionist was however very helpful and transferred us to a better room which was cleaner but had a broken lamp shade and we could hear a guests television playing until 2.30 in the morning. Whilst we didn't eat in the hotel we fancied a drink in the bar/restaurant when we returned from Weymouth only to be told that we could only have one drink as they were closing early due to not being busy. There was no nice lounge area to drink it in so we ended up drinking our drinks in the reception area.

Riviera Hotel

After reading the reviews for this hotel (after I'd booked) I was filled with trepidation but then my colleagues and I were pleasantly surprised.

The exterior of the hotel particularly at the back could do with repainting but the hotel has obviously started by redoing the interior of the rooms. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the shower was good and there were lots of hotel accessories. We had dinner, which did admittedly take quite a long time but we were warned and it was half term , the staff were very friendly and happy to accommodate our requests. Breakfast was excellent too!
