More about Riviera Guest House

The award-winning and family-run Riviera Guesthouse is located on Whitby’s popular West Cliff and boasts magnificent sea views from nearly all its guest bedrooms. The Riviera is only a ‘stone’s throw’ away from Whitby’s beautiful sandy beach.

The Riviera Guesthouse’s commitment to guest satisfaction has been recognised by various awards, the latest being TripAdvisors Travellers’ Choice Award 2020. The Riviera Guesthouse is also a Good Hotel Award winner 2020.

The guest house is made up of 15 bedrooms, glorious four-poster rooms with large, picturesque ‘floor to ceiling’ bay windows where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful view which stretches from the entrance of the harbour all the way across towards the pretty coastal village of Sandsend.

There’s a variety of king-sized, deluxe and standard double rooms available, all offering breath-taking views out to sea. The three single rooms are located at the front of the property and benefit from amazing views. To the rear there are a further 2 standard double rooms and 2 family/twin bedrooms.

Each of the bedrooms come complete with an LCD TV, hairdryer, ironing board and a well-stocked hospitality tray, and all have luxurious en suite facilities, except one of the single bedrooms which has a private shower room. All bathrooms have complimentary toiletries and lovely soft white fluffy towels.

After a restful night, come and enjoy a hearty breakfast served in our dining room. The dining rooms also have ‘floor to ceiling’ bay windows, showcasing magnificent views out to sea. Enjoy a full English breakfast, vegetarian breakfast or breakfast sandwiches. If you fancy something a little different, you can choose from smoked salmon & scrambled egg, traditional Whitby kippers or even opt for an American style brekkie.

The Riviera is a great base for exploring all what the historical coastal resort of Whitby has to offer, with its famous 199 steps up to Whitby Abbey, quaint narrow streets, beautiful coastal walks, lazy days on the beautiful beaches, unique shops and splendid eateries, all just waiting to be discovered.

Take a trip out on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway - start in Whitby and travel 24 miles, taking in the amazing scenery. Stop and explore the village stations down the line before reaching the final stop at Pickering.

If you fancy exploring further afield then within easy reach of the Riviera are the neighbouring coastal resorts of Filey, Scarborough and Bridlington. Go inland and you'll find the historical City of York, with its famous Walls, museums, gardens, shops and an abundance of eateries.
