We booked last minute with the Tourist Information so had done no research, though for the price had some idea of what to expect. We were greeted by a lovely, friendly young lady who showed us to our room. It was a family room - £90 for two of us. The room was Ok and the bathroom very good. The... More

We stayed at the Firs for 3 nights at the end of August 2014. We paid £85 a night for D, B&B for 2 of us and a dog. Earlier in the month we had stayed at a fabulous B&B in the Yorkshire Dales where we had had a huge room, a truly fabulous breakfast, wonderful views, very very friendly... More

Firstly this hotel is lovely with the most amazing breakfast you will get. The area is stunning and a short walk from a beautiful beach (if you can manage a hill so steep it needs steps on the pavement, good exercise though). The staff (except one) are lovely and very polite. Negative points for the hotel are the beds are... More

We booked The Firs as part of the Cleveland Way walk, and this hotel was one of the most expensive on our list so we expected a little bit extra. Unfortunately, the room we were allocated, Room 9, which was on the ground floor was a bit drab. The bed creaked every time we moved and the TV kept losing... More

My team and I were working in Whitby and got booked into the Firs by our office staff. Generally we get very basic places to stay. It started well by having a beautiful drive from Whitby to the Firs. Upon our arrival we realised we had something a bit better than normal. We were greeted by Mandy who was very... More

Great location for Runswick Bay beach. Extremely dog friendly, our two Labradors were welcomed with open arms. Fantastic breakfast with locally sourced sausage and bacon, homemade bread and jam and great coffee. My eyes were bigger than my belly!

From the advertised details, reviews and the price, we were expecting to be 'wowed' by The Firs. We felt rather let down by the reality. The welcome we had (I think by the owner herself) was great, the service was good and the English breakfast was fantastic. The bedroom was a bit small, clean but 'tired', in need of decorating...

Excellent guest house, made to feel most welcome by the owner. Nothing is too much trouble and even our dog is welcomed, even give a sausage! Runswick Bay is a delightful place unspoilt and allows dogs on the beach. We had a special birthday celebration at the Firs last year with twenty four of us having free run of the... More

We stayed here while walking the Cleveland Way and it is only 200 yards off the path. This is quite a large B&B offering reasonable accommodation en suite. The owner is helpful. It would be difficult to have an early start as breakfast seemed to be from 8.30am. Though in our room free national UK calls were advertised which would... More
