This year marks the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s first Pacific voyage that weighed anchor in 1768. 
 
A local lad, Captain Cook went on to circumnavigate the globe from west to east, so you could say he made the ultimate ‘voyage and return’! 
 
And along the same theme, we’re looking forward to the return of our regular guests, rather like watching out for the returning swallows each summer – we are always delighted to see them! 
 
Our guests (returners and ‘newbies’) are most welcome to our family home here in Whitby, which is just seconds away from the Captain Cook Memorial statue. 
 
We have 15 stunning bedrooms, serve a hearty breakfast and our location is hard to beat ... yet we offer something a bit different to these USPs. 
 
The heart and soul of our business is our family unit. When you join ‘the Riviera gang’, you become part of the fabric of our business that we hold close to our hearts … while at the same time you are given your privacy and chance to hide away from life’s hustle and bustle, which is the whole point of taking a seaside break. 
We’re happy to tell you about great places to eat and visit, but equally you might just want to lose yourself in the narrow streets of our lovely town and take long, breezy walks as you explore the Yorkshire Coast, while being safe in the knowledge that we are here to make your stay comfortable and memorable – an experience you’ll hopefully want to repeat time and again. 
 
So, 250 years ago, when Captain Cook set sail on his first Pacific voyage in HMS Endeavour, he ventured into a little-known world. This particular maritime quest took him and his crew to New Zealand and Australia, and they were some of the very first Europeans to visit these two great nations. 
 
And when you embark on your own journey to come and stay with us, we hope that you’ll make a return voyage to us again in the none-too-distant future!
