Under cooked chicken and pork, boiled to death vegetables and a menu biased towards the eastern European/Russian palate including boiled tripe and fish roe, Chips served up at the evening meal appeared to be warmed up leftovers from lunch.
This unpleasant experience is compounded by the poor layout of the buffet/dining area which promotes congestion and chaos meaning that by the time you have served yourself and found a vacant table your food is now cold as well as being seriously deficient in any nutritional benefit to the eater.
The walls of the rooms are so thin that anyone snoring in the next room sounds as though they are in your bed because the layout of every other room mirrors the one next door and anyone suffering with wind can be heard clearly in the adjoining bathrooms.
Anyone seeking a WiFi connection are expected to pay for the privilege on a sliding scale depending on how long they want to go online. There are TV's in every room but the remote control can only be obtained by paying a fee.
The Riviera Hotel displays a three star rating but there is no Hairdryer and no Bidet in the rooms and only two mains electricity outlets in the rooms and these are badly situated so if you bring your own kettle make sure it has a long power lead(1.5M Preferably).
Entry to the rooms is by a single key card, which also activates the electricity and Air/con, this means that if you leave the room, all power is shut down when you take the key card with you, so charging a mobile phone or any other battery powered device is stopped.
I shall never return to this hell hole!
