Riviera Hotel
Ranked #58 of 85 Hotels in Torquay
Reviewed 3 March 2012

I was the sole male in our party supporting my wife's choir in a competition. The hotel was full of other choirs taking part in the competition at the nearby Rivera centre. Our room on the 4th floor (which is the first floor) was a little tired and could do with a make over, the shower over the bath could do with a longer hose and the tiles were 80's vintage but clean. The bed was fairly comfortable, with a view over the tennis club to the rear of the hotel. We decided to eat out as the food on offer was not to our liking but the majority of our party found the food to be of a good standard. Breakfast was a hot or cold buffet and you could eat as much as you like. The staff were efficient and attentive. I would only recommend this hotel if you are in large party as the facilities are more suited to groups than solo or couple guests.

Anyone who gives this hotel a poor rating are OFF their head, Good accomodation, excellent food, restaurant staff, first, class also reception. Thanks to Harry Shaw Travel for picking it.one very small critisicism the enterainments room could be a little more "cosy", but no problem, no hesitation in going again.

Excellent food and friendly staff all day and night. Evening meals had at least six choices of hot main meal and several salads.Sweets were also plentiful and varied.

We have just returned from an overnight's stay at this hotel The staff were wonderful, so very friendly and welcoming, and the food that we were served was absolutely fantastic. The quality of the meals on offer was as good as we have had anywhere. Would recommend visiting this hotel.
