We arrived in Whitby on Saturday morning without having previously booked anywhere to stay. We noticed the Riviera displaying a vacancies sign and popped in. They had a double room available and the welcome was so polite and friendly we decided to stay straight away. The location was fantastic, only minutes to the beach/sea front and we had a seaview room which was lovely. Nice room, comfortable bed, tv, tea/coffee etc. The room probably needs a bit of a deeper clean - paint work was a little scuffed/dirty and the bathroom had some mould around the shower/shower screen but it didn't affect our stay and such issues are probably common for most guest houses at this stage of a busy season. Lovely breakfast on the sunday morning (with the added attraction of their super cute little boy). A lovely spontaneous break. Hopefully we will visit again sometime :) Thank you.
