I was very disappointed with this place - the room was very small and looked like it hadn't been cleaned. I struggle to see how this place can call itself a four star establishment - it needs some renovation and TLC. Staff were OK and the breakfast was nice. I would not come here again.

Riviera Town House has a charm of its own. The public areas are immaculate and feel that an interior designer has been at work. The lift has an old fashioned charm of its own. Our room on the 4th floor was small but spotless. The on suite bathroom was very clean. There was a good flatscreen TV, tea and coffee... More

Found the hotel on booking.com but thought at £74 a night b+b was quite expensive so thought I would phone to see if any offers available which there wasn't. I still booked as the location is great. I asked if a nice view was available as it was my partners birthday. On arrival the place looks lovely. Check in was... More

Having stayed at the Riviera Town House for 3 nights, i found the location very good, the hotel however, was not quite what i thought we were paying for.

Good location, but being so close to pubs and nightlife meant rowdy revellers into the early morning. Better with the window closed, but meant a hot night. Other than that we couldn't fault this hotel and would definitely return. Managed to get a parking space right outside and paid £3 a day.

Great location! The staff were very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and the room was very comfortable. There was an iron and board in the room so no need to ask at reception. A wide range of hot drinks are avaliable to use in the room. We enjoyed our stay!!
