We travelled to The Riviera by car & was told there would be a parking space outside, this is not actually the case, you have to park where you can nearby, which could be half a mile away on a side street. On entering our room we immediately found dust & some sticky matter on the heater, not pleasant! Then... More

Many thanks for you comments. Regarding parking, you would never have been told you could park outside as this is pay and display. Obviously if you'd like to pay and display or have a disabled badge, then you could park outside. However we offer scratch cards to guests which allow you to park in the crescent or side streets which... More

I had pre booked this on line with late rooms and my first time in a guest house, I arrived after a long journey yet there were no staff to greet me on arrival, I was only staying 1 night. I had been shown to the top to the house 4 flights of stairs which were exhausting to climb each... More

I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I would however like to take this opportunity to address your points. On your arrival, you state there was no one there to check you in. Zed was 100 yards away across the road on the grass so that the baby could have some... More

This was our third stay at the Riviera, and it was as nice as ever. Zed and Emma are a lovely couple who make you very welcome, and want you to enjoy your stay. Nice to meet the addition to the family, 9 month old Zak, who smiles a lot, just like they do. Lovely room, magnificent view, smashing breakfast.... More

We arrived in Whitby on Saturday morning without having previously booked anywhere to stay. We noticed the Riviera displaying a vacancies sign and popped in. They had a double room available and the welcome was so polite and friendly we decided to stay straight away. The location was fantastic, only minutes to the beach/sea front and we had a seaview...

Lovely family who own the guest house, we received a warm and friendly welcome, we had a large room, which was very clean and had a great view out to the sea, perfect location. Would definitely stay again.
