We stayed for three nights at the Firs.Mandy is a terrific hosts. Everything she chooses to do, she does really well. Mandy was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful at every stage. There were plenty of little extras - There was complementary cake every day in the room. The breakfasts were lovely - Homemade bread and preserves and locally sourced meat.... More

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

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...
