Room was far too expensive at over £270 for 2 adults and a child for two nights A bit dated and VERY noisy at night from all the carrying on in the street below but that's not the hotel's fault. Staff friendly, rooms clean and comfy, parking a problem.

Stayed in the Riviera for the second time, lovely hotel, clean and tidy...beautiful breakfast room with a good choice of breakfast. Anyone wanting a good friendly central hotel in Scarbough should choose the Riviera.

Excellent, this was my abode after the disaster at the Grand. 28-31 May 2015. Stayed three nights. It was a pleasure, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was five stars plus. All the staff were very polite, efficient and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend this hotel. I will be visiting again.

We booked a classic room at the front of the hotel. Room was clean and bed comfortable. The hotel has very dated decor and is in need of a total refurb. It was not worth the £100 we paid. However, breakfast was good and staff were helpful. There was nothing really bad to say about this hotel, but nothing really...

Great central location,very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast room and breakfast itself excellent. Unfortunately no bar or entertainment. Parking can be a problem,street parking only and can be expensive. Lots of bars locally and entertainment in surrounding hotels.
