Unfortunately we do not allow dogs at the Guesthouse. We have sadly had some bad experiences which has caused us to set a 'no dog' policy for the comfort of the rest of our guests. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Best wishes, Emma (Riviera, Whitby)

Do you have to pay for parking outside? Thank you.
Whitby is a controlled parking zone therefore there are two options for parking: Pay & Display Zone From 1st March to 31st October, outside the front of the Guesthouse (along the sea front), is a Pay & Display Zone. Between these dates, it will cost £6 per day to park your vehicle. Outside of these dates, the machines are out of service, therefore it is free to park your vehicle. Disabled badge holders are exempt from payment. Disc Zone The majority of guests prefer to park in the Disc Zones around Whitby, especially throughout high season. There are many Disc Zones surrounding the Guesthouse which are all clearly signposted. To park in the Disc Zones, you will need to display a permit (scratchcard) in your front window. These can be obtained from the Guesthouse, on arrival, at the cost of 50p. These permits last up to 4 days, at which point they expire. If you are staying longer than 4 days, you will need to obtain a new permit from the Guesthouse. This scheme is in place throughout the whole year and traffic wardens do patrol the area out of season. I hope this answers your question. If you would like any further advice then please do not hesitate to call us on 01947 602533. Many thanks Emma Riviera, Whitby
