Emma,Zed and Zak are very helpful and caring hosts. The seaviews are wonderful - it has a wonderful location away from the busy town, but near the beach and lots of places to sit and enjoy the sun. The town is only a short walk downhill, or there is a bus stop outside the guest house. The breakfast is very... More

We have just had an amazing long weekend in Whitby. The Riviera is the ideal accommodation for everyone. It is in an ideal location, opposite the pavilion, right by the sea, close to the town but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle, the sea view room we had was lovely and well maintained. Emma and Zed... More

Whitby is just great, and it's even better when you stay somewhere nice like this. The couple that run the place are fantastic, the breakfast was delicious, and the room was nice. And our room was facing away from the sea; I can only imagine how nice the place would be with a view of the ocean. Absolutely well worth... More

Really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Special dietary requirements catered for without hesitation. Beautiful sea views from the bed which were lovely to wake up to. Great for families and couples alike. We will certainly visit again!
