We stayed here on Friday night - a double and a family room. There was initially some mix up with the rooms but the staff were very helpful and resolved the issue as quickly as they could. We found the staff to be friendly overall and enjoyed staying in a pub. There are no fancy frills here, it is a... More

We called into the hotel for a meal as we were staying at the nearby caravanpark, the food was plentyful and well prepared, I can certainly recommend the gammon and the Steak pie also look very good. Prices are in the region of £10 per meal with Steaks being slightly more expensive we will return

There is no reason on earth to stay in Runswick Bay other than as a stop over on the Cleveland Way because other than the beach and one café there is nothing there. Nowhere to go for a stroll in the evening other than the beach. The Runswick Bay Hotel has a nice bar and eating area but our room... More

Eat here on Friday and Saturday night plus breakfast. Good food and reasonably priced. In a group of 10 and they made us very welcome and really enjoyed our time. Runswick Bay is a lovely place and so are the people we met. Well worth a visit.

The rooms were clean, cheerful, functional and on generous, size space-wise, which was good for unpacking contents of rucksack, which we chose to carry, rather than use a Sherpa. The food (dinner and... More

The hotel is a little tired, but is ungoing refurbishment. Having said that it is very clean and tidy. Staff were all great and provided a good service with excellent, freshly cooked meals. The breakfast was so hearty it kept us going all day. The hotel is very doggie friendly which is great for people like us who always like... More

We stopped in Runswick Bay hotel on a spur of the moment trip to Whitby. The decor is a little dated (shabby chic) but the room was clean and spacious, and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. They serve a mean breakfast as well! The ultimate plus for us is that they were dog friendly, and meant it...they love our... More

We visited for a 1 night stay with our 2 children. Very warm welcome. Helpful staff, lovely room, ample car park, breakfast was fabulous and Ted the dog was nearly dognapped by our children as he is so lovely but we left him sleeping happily by the huge log burner !. Will hopefully be back very soon. Refurbishment is ongoing... More
