Hotel Riviera By the sea is an independent hotel situated on the West Cliff in Bournemouth. This Victorian building was formally a private school for the, “Daughters of Gentlemen” known then as St. Margaret’s Hall. Despite many changes over the years, the building still retains much of its charm of the period, together with its splendid staircase. With 34 rooms, most of which having either front or side facing sea views, we are big enough to cater for most occasions yet small enough to add that personal touch.
