Entrance and communal areas including the breakfast room were lovely, very welcoming and cosy. However, when we started to walk to our room on the upper floor the decor was a bit dated and not as nice as the entrance. The rooms were fine, very small and so were the beds but it did the job for a short visit.... More

Stayed here for one night in may but was very disappointed. We have always liked the look of this hotel from the outside but the rooms are very dated and shabby. The floor boards were very creaky and was hard to move round the room quietly at night. We were also quite near the lift which was also very noisy... More

Booked a one night stay at the Riviera Hotel due to its location near the Spa Complex. Wasn't a good start due to lack of parking outside and had to drive around trying to find a parking place and felt annoyed at having a bit of a walk to the hotel. There is a Multi Storey nearby but costly. However,... More

Room was far too expensive at over £270 for 2 adults and a child for two nights A bit dated and VERY noisy at night from all the carrying on in the street below but that's not the hotel's fault. Staff friendly, rooms clean and comfy, parking a problem.

Stayed in the Riviera for the second time, lovely hotel, clean and tidy...beautiful breakfast room with a good choice of breakfast. Anyone wanting a good friendly central hotel in Scarbough should choose the Riviera.

Excellent, this was my abode after the disaster at the Grand. 28-31 May 2015. Stayed three nights. It was a pleasure, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was five stars plus. All the staff were very polite, efficient and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend this hotel. I will be visiting again.

Stayed Saturday 16th to Monday 18th May with my wife and sister in law. Well situated, parking a bit of a pain but worked out quite well for us as somebody was pulling out as we pulled up to unload. Hotel has scheme with council, so if you get a spot, you can have a 24 hour parking permit from... More
