Bournemouth Riviera Hotel & Holiday Apartments Pool and Spa

About

Whether you are looking for a fun get-away, a special romantic occasion, a base for exploring Dorset or a family beachside holiday. The Riviera Hotel & Holiday Apartments Bournemouth offers you an enjoyable and relaxing time. Our family-owned Bournemouth hotel is proud to have welcomed generations of guests who value friendly service, excellent food and great spa & leisure facilities.

Exclusively situated in the beautifully wooded area of Alum Chine, with panoramic sea views across Bournemouth Bay, and just a short walk from the award-winning seven mile stretch of sandy beach, the hotel is a fantastic base to start your Dorset exploring.

Take a dip in our indoor pool or relax in our new relaxation room equipped with comfortable seating and cosy furnishings. If you prefer something more energetic, our studio gym can help burn off extra energy or for hair & beauty services why not visit our Coast Spa. A fun games room will keep the children playing in a safe environment while you enjoy a drink in our stylish bar with spectacular views across the Bay and wooded Chine.

The Riviera Hotel is one of the finest Bournemouth Hotels due partly to its ideal location. Add to your Bournemouth Holiday experience by falling asleep each night to the blend of fresh sea air and sweet pine scent from the wooded Alum Chine in one of our comfortable bedrooms or apartments.

Restaurant
For delicious food why not book a table in our award winning Cunarder Conservatory Restaurant and experience high levels of creative cooking together with excellent service.

Explore the Area
There are many Bournemouth attractions all within walking distance. Stroll along the promenade or catch the Land Train to visit the Pier and the Pleasure Gardens.  Walk through the wonderful Alum Chine to the fashionable Westbourne village, with its high Victorian arcade of restaurants and boutique shopping.

Close to Poole and its Historic Quay. Poole is home to Brownsea Island and the famous Sandbanks which is one of the most expensive places in the world to live! There are not many hotels in Poole, so take advantage of our location. If you do not want to venture out, why not simply wander along the clifftop to admire the views of the Isle of Wight and Old Harry Rocks.

Weddings
Riviera Hotel Alum Chine is the perfect wedding hotel in Bournemouth for your wedding venue. With romantic sea views and a short walk to the beach, you can rely on us to ensure that your Wedding Day is a huge and memorable success.

We will do our best to help you plan the perfect stay for you.
