The Wharton Family has been welcoming guests for over forty years and the success of the Hotel Riviera is due to our striving for impeccable standards in both accommodation and service. Our policy of continual improvement has resulted not only in rooms and facilities of the highest quality but also in a genuine sense of welcome from a loyal and long-serving staff who have a well-deserved reputation for friendliness and excellent service.
Hotel Riviera, with its echoes of the South of France and prime position on the seafront, is the choice for the discerning in search of relaxation and quieter pleasures. Sidmouth has retained its exclusivity and elegance since Regency times, when it became a fashionable watering place and attracted ‘the people of quality’. Most prominent among these visitors were the Duke and Duchess of Kent with their infant daughter Victoria, later to become Queen.
