Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi in some rooms.

While many guests have reported that the quality of Wi-Fi signal in the common spaces was good, others say that the signal is not so good in some of the rooms. The problem seems to recur quite frequently even after the hotel fixes it.

Frequently overbooked.

The popularity of Ria Park Hotel & Spa unfortunately means that it is frequently overbooked. A few guests have complained that their bookings were cancelled and directed to sister hotels.

Lacks valet and concierge services.

The hotel lacks a doorman, concierge services to help guests with luggage, and also lacks valet parking. Some guests find this quite inconveniencing.
