It is very nice and quite hotel just two minutes from town centre and nearly on the beech. Service is very good same as food . But the best think is the location. Very nice lounge area to relax in. Would stay here again.

We have been to Scarborough on many occasions and always stay at the Riviera. The location is fantastic, close to everything. This time we had another brilliant 2 night stay, the beds are lovely, and very comfy! The breakfast is always fantastic, lots of choice and good quality produce. We would definitely recommend and will be returning soon.
