The hotel is about a few miles from the from the town centre which was what we wanted. Not far walking from the North bay. Plenty of street parking spaces in front of the hotel. The bar is situated on the left and breakfast room on the right as you enter the hotel corridor. You will get a lukewarm welcome...

This is an extremely well run hotel. The hosts are charming. Our room was comfortable, the breakfasts were excellent and the selection of teas is extremely good. Parking is easy and the location is very good.

Thank you for your review and your 4 star rating. We really appreciate that. Just to pick up on a couple of points though- the car park has 6 clearly defined parking spaces and we can get one more in at a push. We checked the hot water to the bath after you mentioned it and there appeared to be...

Stayed here for one night on route to Whitby & had to write this, this hotel is by far the best I've stayed in around the east coast, the rooms were spotless and cosy, the owners couldn't do any more for you and made you feel so welcome, the location is fantastic and only five minutes walk from the beach...
