눉The hotel is a little dated and clearly caters for an older, budget conscious market. Whilst our bedroom was modern and up to date, the public areas are a little old-fashioned and chintzy. There are too many old chairs and occasional furniture cluttering corridors and the dining room is very dated and in need of a modern makeover.
We took the option of the evening meal which certainly offers great volume for money, but given the high speed that it was served, would suggest a high degree of pre-prepared food. Four courses for £15 is unbeatable value - but I would really rather pay a bit more for higher quality cooking.
눇The hotel is in a great location, the staff are brilliant (especially Steve - a legend!) and it is excellent value.
Our room was small but modern and clean. The sea views are nice and the bed was actually one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've slept in.
Breakfast was really good and evening service in the bar was superb (thanks Steve).
Hotel Riviera certainly offers more character and value than a low cost chain. We would happily return.
