The Riviera Guest House Information


Oh I do like to be beside the seaside… And there’s no place quite like Whitby! Fish and chips and queuing up for your favourite ice cream; sand castle competitions and dipping your toes in chilly water, brightly coloured beach huts and fresh salty sea air; a stroll around a quaint town & a rambling walk in the countryside. If you are looking to escape for a classic seaside break, there is no better destination than Whitby. Recognised as the epitome of a British seaside holiday, Whitby has everything you could ask for and more. Boasting one of the best locations for accommodation in town is the Riviera. Our friendly family-run guest house has received several awards for excellence in guest satisfaction. What’s more you won’t find a better outlook in Whitby than here, with panoramic views out to the dramatic North Sea, Whitby Harbour and across to the next bay of Sandsend from our comfortably appointed en suite bedrooms and dining rooms. The Guesthouse is a stone's throw away from the sandy beach & within walking distance of the town with it's vibrant fishing harbour, beautiful and unique shops, restaurants & tourist attractions (e.g., Captain Cooks Museum, the Dracula Experience, boat trips & Whitby Abbey with its famous 199 steps). The majority of the rooms are sea facing & have en-suite facilities, LCD TVs, refreshment trays & large white fluffy towels. The breakfast dining rooms have 'floor to ceiling' bay windows with stunning sea views - a fantastic environment to fill your tummy (cooked & continental breakfast inclusive in the price). Riviera Guesthouse's commitment to guest satisfaction has been recognised by receiving various awards. Our latest awards are TRIPADVISOR TRAVELLERS' CHOICE 2022, BEST FAMILY RUN B&B by LuxLife Hospitality Awards, SEA VIEW GUESTHOUSE OF THE YEAR 2022 and we are also a GOOD HOTEL AWARD 2021 winner. All these things and more, make for perfect sun kissed memories. We’re looking forward to welcoming you.

Booking Terms and Conditions


There are quite a lot of stairs within the Riviera which may make the accomodation unsuitable for some guests. If you would prefer a room lower down the hotel then please contact the hotel directly to request whether one is available. We will always try to accomodate all our guests needs as best as we possibly can do.
