We had the most amazing stay for my hen weekend at the end of March!
The accommodation was perfect for 20 woman, separate bathrooms so not arguing over bathroom space when getting ready to go out!
Pool table & Pac-Man machine went down a treat with a group of competitive mums😂 …
The decor was beautiful & the house was extremely clean. The only shame was that no one knew how to play the piano (as much as we all tried). Would definitely recommend to anyone & wouldn’t hesitate to return!

Just back from a week staying at the Riviera Retreat with the family (11 adults and 7 kids).
Wow, it was brilliant. Such a large, spacious house, that was very clean and had everything we needed, from cork screws to tumble dryers. Games room was welcomed by all, and the WiFi was fast enough for the kids to stay ‘connected’ .
Location was perfect, with just a short walk to Torre Abbey and the sea front.
We all had an amazing time, and would love to return.

Throughout the whole process, from initial contact to the day of arrival, the communication was fantastic. …. immaculate, clean and very well appointed property with so many facilities, it easily catered for the 21 people there to celebrate a 50th Birthday….really plush carpet throughout. The games room as so well used we had pool and dart tournaments…. we even held a murder mystery night which was easily done in the dining area. Would definitely recommend as a great party venue and only a short walk to the beach or town.’

Great location and very well furnished and setup. Pretty much ideal for a larger group as there is plenty of space for activities and dining area etc. responsive host.

Fantastic long weekend with friends!
The house was clean, furnished really well, and had everything we needed!
Perfect location only 10min walk to the sea front and bars.
Really would recommend for large groups!
Many thanks.

I recently booked Riviera Retreat for a work conference. The venue was fantastic with all the facilities you could ask for, plenty of space, breakout rooms and a great location.
There is a car park just a few metres away that you can park in (RingGo app) very reasonably. The house is a short walk from the beautiful sea front.
Suzi, the owner, was so helpful ensuring we had all details prior to the visit, and made the check in and out seamless.
I will definitely be back, the entire team loved it – thank you!

Just arrived home from a fantastic weekend at the RIviera Retreat.

Wonderful location, short walk to Torre Abbey, through the gardens to seafront spot on.

I had forgotten how nice Torquay is, everything walkable, the harbour , the marina and the beach, the children (& some big kids too) even went in the sea.

Obviously we were very lucky with the weather, some may have even caught the sun, no one had sun cream as just wasn’t expecting!

Parking was not a problem, plenty of spaces very near in the street.

The space was perfect for us, lots of room, small children could play in the games area and everyone relaxed in the lounge

We even had a piano recital and my brother who’s birthday we were celebrating had some vinyl records so was very pleased with the record play!

We were a mixed aged blended family and the house was able to accommodate us all, all but one room ensuite, everyone happy, lots of seaviews.

The downstairs bedroom was a blessing, as mother in law was with us. She was very active and independent when I booked however unfortunately has had a few falls so very limited mobility. She did have the best of times though.

We rearranged the dinning tables, carefully decorated the room and had a private chef cook for us a gala meal on Saturday, it was fabulous, it really made the evening special. I have passed on the chefs details to the booking agent

I almost forgot to mention the kitchen, fully equipped, seemed double everything so no falling over each other while making a cuppa or toast!

I would recommend Rivera Retreat as the perfect house for a big group get together, it ticks all the right boxes.
