A two minute walk away from beautiful scenic views of Scarborough in one direction 15 minute walk to the shops & train station in the other direction, The Rivelyn Hotel is in a great location & super cheap! We got lucky & found a parking spot right outside the hotel & the parking there was only 50p a day. The owner did advise us of all parking options upon arrival. We was also told breakfast was included but it wasn't what we expected, it was slightly continental as it included cereals & bread but that was it. The room was ideal for myself & my partner as we were always out & about, you get what you pay for. The bed was super comfy. Only two small let downs, tv & shower. If you like your tv, room 109 has really poor signal so don't stay in that room. We did inform the staff but unfortunately the dodgy picture stayed the same. One morning we used the shower around 9am but ended up having to have a cold shower, the previous mornings we were showering at around 7am it was really hot so you may have to time your showers!

Would like to say a big thank you to Linda, you made our stay very welcoming. Was a double left on booking.com and Linda changed us to a twin as was for myself and my daughter. Crisp white sheets, wide screen tv and tea/coffee making in room. Hair dryer supplied too. Rooms are being decorated as Linda and family just taken over and we wish them ever success. Best wishes Sarah & Nat

We stayed here for 3 nights during August, we were originally booked in a hotel round the corner for 2 nights but booking.com had double booked us and put us here - i'm now glad they did as this hotel is lovely. Very welcoming. helpful and friendly staff/owners. The owners have just recently taken over and are in the process of refurbishing it - you can tell that it will soon become a gem of a place! We liked it that much that we stayed an extra night!

The room that we had was lovely, it was to the back on the ground floor of the building so not much of a view but very quiet. We had a great big comfy bed with a flat screen t.v with loads of different channels. the bathroom was very modern and clean - the shower was quite powerfull. Very clean - although a wee touch up with a paint brush here and there is needed but that is on the cards very soon. I would deffinitely say here again.

Stayed twice hotel undergoing improvements, This did not get in the way of a great stay with great staff, lovely atmosphere and Linda is a star. 8 minute walk from the Railway station this is an ideal central location and only a very short hop from the spa gardens and cliff walk.

This hotel has just been taken over by Linda and her family and they have taken on a large project to get this hotel back to it's full glory. They are doing it a certain amount of rooms at a time and I am happy to say that our room was large, light and well stocked with a lovely little touch with the toiletries being presented in a crisp white bag.
The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the bar was very welcoming.
Linda and her staff were very hospitable and did everything they could to make our stay as good as it was.
