Good location. Parking no problem. Friendly welcome from Emma. Bit of a hike to the top room but it kept my bones active. An offer to carry the bags up was made. Well equipped, quiet room with comfy beds. Good breakfast.

Emma and Zed really friendly. Room was very comfortable and warm, just what we needed after a day exploring Whitby. The breakfast was to die for. The location was perfect, just 5 minutes walk to the beach / pier / town centre / quayside. I would highly recommend the Riviera Guest House--- we will be making a return visit

We booked this B&B after much research into places to stay in Whitby. When I called to ask about access requirements and to ask whether the single rooms were a reasonable size I was offered a double for the same price as a single, which was appreciated. The rooms were clean and well maintained and breakfast was lovely. I would... More

Emma and Zed are most welcoming, giving information on the local area, things to do, places to eat etc. The room was clean and tidy with fresh towels. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. Had a great time. Thanks.

Excellent breakfast menu with numerous options to accommodate even the fussiest eater. (the black pudding was exquisite). The hosts Emma & Zed couldn't do enough for us. Fantastic value... More

Wonderful B&B, friendly atmosphere, close to town, very helpful staff! Comfortable rooms and a great view of the sea. Full English in the morning is a must. Highly recommend and will recommend to friends. A real slice of Yorkshire hospitality.
