We received a very warm welcome from both Emma and Zed. The room was clean and comfy. The choice of breakfast excellent and the food delicious. On top of this we had fantastic views. All in all a great place to stay.

A warm welcome and a comfortable room with a lovely sea view - and very close to the harbour (down some steps). Excellent choice for breakfast, including splendid Whitby kippers. A lift would be nice - there are plenty of steps elsewhere in Whitby!

We stayed at the Riviera guest house for one night but would happily stayed longer! The welcome, the sea view, the amazing breakfast all made our stay special. Next time we're in Whitby we won't bother looking for anywhere else.

Overall a good performance. Small points I would mention are that the bathroom could have been cleaner and the breakfast was a 5/10. The location was great, directly on the front. Parking only cost a £1 for four days. Great views from the bedroom with plenty of tea and coffee.

We had a fabulous time as always at the Riviera. A warm and friendly greeting by Zed who can't do enough to help. We booked a four poster room which was absolutely spotlessly clean. The breakfast is outstanding and now the menu has been extended you are even more spoilt for choice (if that were possible). We had a great... More

Me & hubby had a long weekend here (22/05 - 25/05, bank hol weekend). Cannot find fault with this wonderful family run b & b. Nothing was too much trouble. Stayed in room 1 which did not have a sea view, but it didn't promise one so no surprise there. Very spacious, modern decoration, plenty of storage space and even... More
