The Hotel Riviera is splendidly positioned at the centre of Sidmouth’s esplanade, overlooking Lyme Bay. With its mild climate and the beach just on the doorstep, the setting echoes the south of France and is the choice of the discerning visitor in search of relaxation and quieter pleasures.

Behind the Hotel's fine regency facade lies an alluring blend of old fashioned service and present day comforts with a style and ambience that justly reflects its AA four star rating and recently, one of only a handful to receive the coveted Gold Award from Visit England.

Glorious Sea views can be enjoyed from the recently re-designed en-suite bedrooms, all of which are fully appointed and have many thoughtful extras.

In the elegant bay-view dining room guests are offered a fine choice of dishes from extensive menus, prepared by English trained chefs with local seafood being a particular speciality.

The regency bar has recently been completely refurbished to create a superbly relaxing environment. Entertainment is provided on many evenings by our resident pianist.

The hotel has a long tradition of hospitality and is perfect for unforgettable holidays, long weekends, unwinding breaks and all the spirit of the glorious festive season... You will be treated to the kind of friendly personal attention that can only be found in a private hotel of this quality.
