Me and friends stayed here for 5 nights. It was a great cheap deal and our room was lovely, our room was made up everyday with fresh towels. Recepion was really helpful giving us maps and ideas of where to go. We had the cooked breakfast each morning for only 4.50. It was amazing!! The bar downstairs in the hotel... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid august, the staff were polite and friendly. Over all the room was very clean with comfortable beds, although it had a strange layout with a separate shower, toilet and sink, it was quite spacious and modern with everything we needed including an electric alarm clock. Early hours in the morning the room... More

As students, both me and my boyfriend wanted a short valentines break last february that wouldn't break the bank! As the Rively Hotel was perfect. The Landlady was so lovely, as we checked in rather late she was still waiting up for us to get in, offering us little chocolate hearts on entry. The room itself was basic yet nicely... More

This was the worse hotel we stayed at on a road trip. Do not be fooled by the pictures of the bedrooms in this hotel, rooms are nothing like them. It was very noisy had no sleep. There was no hot water to have a shower. Bathroom very small larger people would struggle to use it. Dust everywhere, dirty bedding.... More

Shabby, Not very clean rooms. Tired décor. Windows didn't open properly. Poor maintenance of rooms. Dints/holes in walls and doors. Breakfast lady was scary and swore about the guests till she realised that some of us were still in the breakfast room! Out of date cereal. Only hotel I've ever stayed in that made us pay on arrival...I wonder why?!!!... More

Apologies, I had thought I had done this already...In the 3rd week of JULY 2014, I took a group of 20 to the hotel. Except for "small problems" with morning showers (in 2-3 rooms only) my folk ALL enjoyed this hotel, they ALL would happily come to Rivelyn Again. The price we paid, we could not have got at any...

Just back from a trip to Scarborough as a last minute getaway for my partners 30th and can honestly was left really disappointed. Despite a great location and decent price tag, the whole place was let down by unclean rooms and unwelcoming staff which really put a downer on our entire trip. The room was a really good size and...

They need a college course in "how to clean a room" having said that they are very friendly and it's cheap enough for a weekend away I wouldn't like to stay here any longer. Breakfast is continental or you have to pay £4.50 for a cooked one which is swimming in fat. On the whole it's ok but needs extensive... More
