About the hotel

The Riviera is a friendly and welcoming, family run Guesthouse with stunning panoramic views over the North Sea. The views stretch from the next Bay (Sandsend) across the sea to Whitby Harbour Entrance. The Guesthouse is a stone's throw from the beautiful sandy beach of the East Coast.

We are also within walking distance of all the local amenities and tourist attractions (e. g. West Cliff attractions, Pavillion / Spa, Pannett Park, town centre, pubs, restaurants, shopping, boat trips, Whitby Abbey, NYMR). We have Sandsend, Robin Hoods Bay and the North Yorkshire Moors all on our doorstep. The prime location of the Guesthouse also means that it is peaceful therefore the Riviera is in the perfect location for your break to Whitby. We believe a cosy bed, clean room, and a quality breakfast is essential to any good holiday. All our rooms have en-suite facilities, comfy beds, duvets and bed linen, LCD TVs, complimentary high speed fibre WiFi, refreshment trays and large white fluffy towels which offer convenience and the comfort of 'home'. Hairdryers and ironing facilities can be obtained upon request. The majority are also sea facing and have a little seating area in front of the window to relax in comfort. We are sure that you will want to return 'time after time'. Our breakfast dining rooms have 'floor to ceiling' Bay Window sea views - a fantastic environment to fill your tummy. We offer a variety of cooked breakfast options e. g. 'Full Yorkshire' Breakfast (grilled bacon, sausage, black pudding, hash browns, grilled tomato, mushrooms, beans and you choice of egg), Whitby Kippers, Scrambled Egg with Smoked Salmon and more; or continental alternatives. We also cater for vegetarians and 'gluten free'. Our selection of cooked breakfasts takes us beyond a standard Whitby Guesthouse. Parking is cheap and straightforward. You can obtain temporary permits from the Guesthouse which allow you to park in zones very close to the hotel which are allocated mainly to guests and residents. We will direct you to these on your arrival. Our commitment to guest satisfaction has been recognised by receiving various awards from travel companies and review sites. Our most recent awards are TripAdvisor Service Excellence 2015, LateRooms 'Simply the Guest' Award 2015 and Trivago 'Rated Excellent' Award 2015. We are dedicated to making your stay a memorable one, be it simply a few hassle-free days away, business or special occasion, please contact us to discuss your individual requirements. We look forward to welcoming you to The Riviera in this beautiful area of the country.
