We really enjoyed our one night stay. Lovely people. We received a really friendly welcome, the guest house has been modernised and was clean and in a great location. We had an amazing sea view from our room and a very nice breakfast. The whole stay was just what we wanted and we will definitely visit again. Thank you again... More

Many thanks for your wonderful review. It means so much to us when guests take the time out of their busy days to make such lovely comments. Thank you for mentioning the draft through your window. We have got the Window guys in who have adjusted the hinges slightly which has stopped the draft. We have also just ordered some... More

This hotel is in an amazing spot with great views. Zed made us feel very welcome when we arrived, gave us our keys, explained breakfast and gave us a welcome pack. We were on the 3rd floor so quite a few steps to go up. But everyone needs a bit of exercise. Room was nice, clean and spacious with en-suite... More

Stayed here one night New Year's Eve. Fantastic hotel. Spotlessly clean. Modern ensuite bathroom and comfortable room and bed. Great location. Near to town and on the sea front with great views. Cooked breakfast was really good. Everything you would want. Extremely high standards . I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel . Excellent !!!!

I booked 1 double room (room 11) and 1 single room (room 10) for 2 nights (2nd & 3rd Jan 2015) after reading all the very good reviews here on Trip Advisor. There is no car parking, but it is free in the car park across the road until March. We were greeted very nicely and made to feel very... More

We had two nights at the Riviera between Christmas and New Year; our first visit to Whitby but hopefully not our last, it's lovely. Ourselves and our friends booked the more expensive four poster rooms and we weren't disappointed; the rooms are lovely, a great size and with fantastic sea views. Both rooms had a coffee table and comfy chairs... More
