Friendly owners, great location (with parking which is a rarity in Whitby!) and a spotlessly clean & modern room. Bed was very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast served to our room instead of having to wander blearily eyed down to a dining room & make polite conversation with other guests ;-) Will always be our first choice in...

This has to be one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The owners were very friendly and extremely accommodating - to such an extent that they agreed to be witnesses at our wedding ceremony as we had eloped to Whitby - and they put a lovely personal touch to the service. The room was very clean and...

Stayed for 2 nights. Room was clean and spacious although the en suite was a little on the small side. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Not a place to stay if you are noisy which suited us perfectly. Full cooked breakfast in bed for £5 was fab. Great location, only a few minutes walk from the centre of...

Myself and friends visit Whitby every year for a film festival/ball and we stay here every time. Amazing!

Very central, avoiding any steep climbs. Very clean and comfortable, and provides parking. Not sure about the in-room breakfast? Allows portion control and timing to suit the proprietors -perhaps not for early risers, and real coffee would have been nice! Apart from this it was fine.
