Friendly and helpful reception staff.

Past guests are quick to praise the reception staff at Rivelyn Hotel, which is reported to be friendly and helpful. Guests can expect a warm smile and a can-do attitude throughout their stay.

Quiet and convenient location.

Located about ten minutes from Scarborough’s seafront and town center, Rivelyn Hotel offers easy access to the town’s preferred attractions, including its beach.

Dog-friendly property.

Negative Reviews

In need of a good scrub.

While many guests enjoy their stay at Rivelyn Hotel, others report that the hotel is badly in need of a good, thorough clean. Dirty and worn carpets, shower mold, dusty furnishings and a lack of general cleanliness are some of the issues reported.

Wi-Fi issues commonplace.

According to reports, the hotel seems to have a big issue with Wi-Fi connection. Many guests report that they are unable to access the complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the duration of their stay.

Menu lacks vegetarian options.

A number of guests are disappointed to learn that the hotel restaurant doesn’t offer a lot of vegetarian options. The simple menu commonly features meat and fish, with only a few generic vegetarian dishes available. Travelers with specific dietary requirements may wish to keep this in mind.
