“The most attractive of Sidmouth’s hotels”

Many others have come to agree with this recent verdict of the Daily Telegraph Travel Pages, including:

The Automobile Association

Selected the Hotel Riviera for its prestigious Courtesy and Care Award. This Award recognises the exceptionally high standards of accommodation, food and hospitality offered at the Hotel Riviera, and also reflects the degree of dedication, professionalism and effort on the part of the owners, management and staff.   We have also been awarded a quality rating of 83%, placing the Hotel Riviera among the top hotels in the country, within its Four-Star classification.

AA Rosettes

For outstanding quality of our cuisine, and in recognition of the overall dining experience, our restaurant has this year been awarded Two AA Rosettes.

Visit England

Gold Award

The English Tourism Council’s rare and prestigious Gold Award – presented to just a few select hotels in the United Kingdom, and made to the Riviera for “providing the highest standard of excellence…over and above the expectations of its Four-Star level”.

Rose Award

Presented to the Hotel Riviera in 2019 in recognition of outstanding customer service and high quality accommodation. The ROSE Award recipients are nominated by VisitEngland quality scheme assessors with Hotel Riviera being one of just 100 establisments across England showcased where owners and employees go the extra mile to make their guests visits extra special.

Each of our coveted Awards are testament to the Riviera’s exceptionally high standards of accommodation, food and hospitality; highlighting the degree of dedication, professionalism and commitment by the owners, management and staff.

Other accolades have been awarded from:

Egon Ronay, Johansens which recommended the Riviera ‘for diversity and excellence for the discerning traveller’. The Good Food Guide, Best Loved Hotels of the World, The Which? Hotel Guide, Ashley Courtenay (Hotel of Distinction) and Daily Telegraph ‘one of twenty of the best hotels in the country and on the Coast’.

“Of course, we are always proud and delighted to receive awards from writers and organisations with such demanding standards as these, but we derive the greatest pleasure from the appreciative comments afforded us by individual guests, who have experienced the many pleasures of staying at the Riviera and have enjoyed that special sense of welcome we earnestly provide. We trust, in the following web pages, you will find all the information you need about our services and facilities, in the hope that we might look forward to extending that same warm welcome to you, in the very near future.”

Peter Wharton, Managing Director
