A great find 👍
Just returned from a weekend stay at Rivera Lodge, we enjoyed everything about it, friendly professional owners and staff, swift and easy check in/out, very clean hotel, nice rooms, a lovely bar, seating area over looking a very well maintained heated pool and garden area contain a hot tub (although sadly never got to use them due to the English weather,), very good location a 10 min walk to beach and Torquay town, would definitely recommend and will be visiting again 👍

Warning – please read carefully! We came across this hotel on the Expedia site and were looking forward to a week away as we were caring for my mum 24/7 and were ready for a weeks respite with mum going into a care home during our break. We had booked 2 rooms so my daughter and partner could come with us. Sadly on the 30 June 2019 my mum died suddenly and unexpectedly. This was the day we were to travel down and start our holiday. I informed the Hotel owners at 11.30am and explained we would not be able to come under the very sad circumstances so they could re-let the rooms. Later I enquired about a refund expecting a gesture in the very sad circumstances. All I got was a list of excuses why no refund at all would be given. We were shocked as were Expedia! They actually made more profit out of us than usual with NO food cost, NO cleaning or linen costs. I will never book at this hotel again as the owners showed no compassion offering not a penny refund and are only interested in their own bank balance. If you do book here you need to worry if you don’t have travel insurance. We lost over £1188!!!!
