About Us

Perfectly located to take full advantage of Torquay’s many attractions, Riviera Lodge Hotel offers a relaxing mix of comfortable, modern guest facilities and traditional values with an informal atmosphere.

Our simple ethos is to provide our guests a quality of accommodation and standard of courtesy that experienced travellers would expect – with some additional Devonshire charm.

Business or pleasure, any occasion or length of stay, you can count on great hospitality at the Riviera Lodge Hotel.

Originally constructed as a holiday villa for a wealthy merchant in 1894, our beautiful Victorian building first opened its doors to paying guests in the 1930s as Riva Lodge, whose promotional literature enticed potential residents with the promise of ‘Comfort, cosiness and splendid food’.

The intervening eighty years have seen many changes to staff, clientele and interior design but one quality has remained steadfast across the decades – customer service.

Torquay retains its well-earned reputation as an historically important seaside town – it was referred to as ‘The Queen of the English Riviera’ by Great Western Railway on its promotional posters throughout the golden age of steam – a place to relax, unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures.

We strive to ensure that Riviera Lodge Hotel reflects those sentiments to all who stay with us.

Stunning surroundings – & a base that’s just for grown-ups

With a host of popular tourist destinations – including Torre Abbey House, Gardens and Park, Riviera International Centre, Abbey Sands and the Agatha Christie Mile as well as Torquay Harbour with its boat cruises  – all virtually on our doorstep, there’s never a shortage of entertainment within walking distance of the hotel.

For those willing to venture a little further afield, it’s just a short drive to Babbacombe, Paignton, Kents Cavern, Goodrington Park, Dartmouth Steam Railway.  And after a busy day exploring the south coast of Devon, Riviera Lodge Hotel affords the ideal environment for relaxation, where our ‘over 14’s only’ policy ensures an ambience of peace and tranquility.
