Pricy double room. Just across from the Spa Pavillion. Convenient. The first floor fire doors were open for 3 nights running. One would not close properly. The other was wedged open with a fire extinguisher.

A very conveniently placed B and B on the West Cliff. Excellent views from the rooms at the front of the house which are clean and nicely decorated. Breakfasts are excellent, freshly cooked to order and Zed and Emma could not be more helpful

We stayed two nights at the Riviera for the Street Choirs Festival and were very impressed with the welcome, the accommodation and the breakfast. The room was spotless, with a very comfortable bed, every facility you could wish for and a fabulous sea view. Breakfast was freshly cooked, abundant and very tasty with an excellent vegetarian option. Emma and Zed... More

Hotel was clean and welcoming. Staff were very friendly, chatty and helpful.We are both vegetarians and the food was excellent. The views over the sea were stunning and the main street was just around the corner. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Whitby and would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Pleasantly surprised at the high standard of the Riviera and attentive owners Zed and Emma. The room was on the top floor and the only downside was the water pressure in the ensuing shower. However it was a wonderful location for walking into Whitby and had stunning sea views. Will definitely return.

The view was breathtaking and a real bonus to the room. Very pleasant to sit and watch the world go by. Breakfast was enjoyable with a good choice. Good hospitality, agree though with previous reviewer however that cleanliness could receive some attention.

The Riviera is in a prime position on Whitby's West Cliff with magnificent sea views. Zed and Emma Ward offer a friendly warm welcome and are fully committed to making guests enjoy their stay. The food is very good, with plenty of choice. The accommodation is of a high standard. We have stayed there for the past few years and... More
