My mum and I have just returned from a 2 nights stay at Bats. This place is amazing, the decor is fabulous and it was immaculately clean. Kev the owner goes above and beyond, he even picked us up from the station. The breakfast was first class and a great start to the day. All in all, a fantastic break.

My lovely fiance brought me here for my birthday on Halloween.

The rooms are amazing, me and my partner stayed in the Lunar Suite. Four poster bed, Sky TV, coffin sofa and your own vampire killing kit. This...

You get a warm welcome, rooms full of character, comfortable beds, brilliant breakfasts and all with the goth/witchy character. If you like dragons and a great nights sleep, I...

Just got back from our 8th visit to Bats and Broomsticks. We quite honestly couldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Whitby. Kev is a genuinely fantastic host who can't do enough for you to make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable. Can't wait to get back up there for another spell as soon as possible.
