Brilliant guest house, ideally situated for walking in and out of town, (if you can handle the big hill) Staff lovely and friendly, Room very clean and spacious, Parking no problem in the designated Zone area. Breakfast menu fantastic, and a brilliant way of chosing exactly what you want or don't want to eat. Nothing was too much trouble, would... More

Managed to get a room here on the Northern Soul weekend, we must have been the only ones not to know about it. The owners were a friendly couple with a little one and always available on the phone if not onsite. Located on west cliff overlooking the lovely beach, sadly our room overlooked the car park and buildings behind,... More

Based on the good reviews that I read on here, I thought I had got somewhere with really good value and was excited to arrive here to enjoy my birthday weekend. The pictures also looked really nice! We arrived at the B&B and were greeted by Zed, who unfortunately had broken his ankle (we hope he gets better soon!) and... More

just want to say that our stay at The Riviera Guest House Whitby was amazing ,the room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable , lovely white towels. The sea view was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for Emma, even providing a much needed fan and ice cubes on one occasion. Breakfast was lovely too with so much... More

Based on the largely positive reviews I was expecting something better. What let it down for me was the decoration. It looked shabby and dated and in need of a makeover. However, we received a nice welcome from the owner on arrival and all staff were pleasant and helpful. The hotel is nicely situated 10-15 mins walk from the harbour... More

This time we stayed for two nights in one of the newly refurbished rooms right at the top of the house.Lovely bright room with lots of storage and a comfy double bed. The views are great from this...

Lovely Guest House in a great location on West Cliff. Excellent view from bedroom which was clean and tidy. Nothing too much trouble for the hosts and staff. Great Holiday. Quiet rooms and good breakfast. Will return.

Just returned from a lovely stay in the Riviera Hotel. Emma and Zed very friendly couple. Rooms lovely with very comfy beds. Room 2 particularly nice with chairs in the bay to watch the world outside. Location was great with views across the bay and the walk to town was fine even the steps. Breakfast cooked to order and was... More
