About

Welcome to the Riviera Guesthouse in Whitby, which has just been awarded the Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice award 2020!

A friendly, family-run establishment with stunning panoramic coast views, stretching from Sandsend to the North to Whitby’s impressive harbour entrance. 

The Riviera is in a prime location, being a stone’s throw from Whitby’s golden sands and is within easy walking distance of local attractions and amenities, which include the Whitby Spa Pavilion, Pannett Park, the Captain Cook Memorial, Whitby Abbey, boat trips, and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Pubs, restaurants and cafés aplenty are on the doorstep.

Whitby itself has connections to the explorer Captain Cook, Bram Stoker (who wrote the Gothic classic Dracula) and a fascinating history. Nearby places to visit include Robin Hoods Bay, the North York Moors National Park and Ravenscar.

The Riviera is situated in an elegant terrace on the West Cliff part of the town. We have cosy beds, spotlessly clean rooms and a hearty, freshly cooked breakfast for our guests. 

With quality en-suite facilities, duvets, bed linen, fluffy towels, LCD TVs, complementary high-speed fibre Wi-Fi, and refreshment trays, we offer a convenient location and all the comforts of home. Hairdryers and ironing facilities available on request. 

Most of our rooms are sea facing and we provide seating areas in front of the windows so you can relax and take in the incredible views.

So, after a comfortable night’s sleep, join us in our breakfast dining room that has floor to ceiling bay window sea views. We offer freshly cooked breakfasts, including the Full Yorkshire Breakfast (grilled bacon, sausage, black pudding, hash browns, grilled tomato, mushrooms, beans and a choice of egg); you could try the local delicacy Whitby Kippers, scrambled egg with smoked salmon; or perhaps indulge in a continental breakfast. If you’re vegetarian or gluten-free, we’ve also got this covered.

One aspect of staying by the seaside that can be a worry is parking but here at the Riviera, it’s simple and straightforward. You can obtain temporary permits from us that allow you to park in designated zones very close to the guesthouse. We will direct you to these upon your arrival. 

We are so proud that the Riviera Guesthouse has won a number of awards over recent years, the most recent being the Travellers' Choice award 2020. Our awards also include Sea View Guesthouse of the Year 2019, Tripadvisor 'Certificate of Excellence' over three consecutive years, which we are delighted with. We have also earned a clutch of accolades from LateRooms ('Simply the Guest Awards'), Hotels.com ('Loved by Guests Awards'), Booking.com ('Guest Review Awards') and awards from Trivago, all of which are testament to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes in our family business. 

So if it’s a couple of days away, a special occasion or a business trip, please get in touch with us so we can make your stay a memorable one and one that you’ll want to repeat time and again. We look forward to welcoming you to the Riviera Guesthouse and this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.

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.
