What a wonderfully warm English family welcome for an Australian retired couple on their 'Gap Year'.The Riviera is a lovely guest house, on the sea front at Whitby. Our spacious, spotlessly clean room, at the front had a fabulous bay window where we could sit with a cup of tea, watching the world go by, on land and sea. The... More

This was my first time stay in Whitby. My Mum and I had 2 single rooms with sea views and what fantastic views they were. We had 2 nights stay at the Riveria over the Easter break. I stayed in room 10 (third floor) my room was exceptionally clean and there was plenty of space. The bed was very comfortable... More

Excellent location and fantastic views from the sea view room. Good size (we stayed in room 5) and very clean. Made very welcome by Zed, Emma and little Zack and breakfast was delicious and hot. Would recommend and would definitely be first choice if staying in Whitby again.

First time staying in Whitby and don't think I'll ever stay anywhere else but the Riviera if we go again. It is in a great location all the attractions not so far away. The food was great and the owners were absolutely brilliant. Would definitely go again. Thumbs up from me

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riviera and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Emma and Zed are such lovely hosts and made you feel at home and very welcome. Breakfast was hot and tasty with plenty of filter coffee. The room was spotlessly clean and had amazing views over the bay. This all added up to a... More

Despite a cold and windy start to this week, a very warm welcome awaited us once again at the Riviera Guest House. We had a great return visit, and as always Emma and Zed were keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We were lucky enough to spend two nights in our favourite room with a stunning sea view, and... More

Went to Whitby over last couple of days and stayed at this lovely guest house. Situated right on the seafront we had a lovely view of the sea and were only a few minutes away from the bay. The room was clean and large, airy and comfortable. We saw a smaller room higher up in the attic that was slightly... More

When we arrived in Whitby we found the hotel very easy to find. We were greeted in reception by Emma, who was both very welcoming and cheerful. She showed us to our room which was very nice, clean and cosy (although the three flights of stairs were a bit much)But the seaview soon made up for it . Stayed two... More

We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Riviera, having stayed in many accommodation types in Whitby over the years,this one is ranked high. Very clean, spacious rooms. Zed and Emma are a lovely friendly couple who go out of their way to ensure you are totally happy. Highly recommended and we will return! Thanks
