We called here forr a quick lunch on our way home from Kendal and found a very shabby hotel ,both outside and inside. Reception was very untidy and chaotic. We waited a while for. A menu to be produced. I ordered a Greek salad which consisted of lots of lettuce ,feta cheese and half a tomato. I said to the... More

The more I stay at this hotel, the more I like it. Like all Trip advisor reviews, it is best to read a number of them, and take a view. The same holds for my three previous reviews of this hotel too. I stand by them all: quaint, quirky, faded jewel perhaps. But the hotel has an unchanging charm, and... More

We hired crockery from 'Crockery Crisis' which is owned by the Heaves Hotel, for a family celebration. We hired the vintage collection and it was beautiful , all our guests were admiring the crockery and it made the day very special. The ease of ordering , collection and return was very efficient and straight-forward and I would definitely recommend this... More

We have been visiting Heaves House for the last 4/5 years. There is a group of 5 of us who travel to a dog show nearby each year. They were unable to accommodate us this year so had to find alternative accommodation which was okay as a standby. Once we knew the date for next year we were on the... More

I and my friend were travelling back from our day out whilst on a June holiday and we were looking for somewhere to eat. We were driving down a lane off the dual carriageway and spotted a "Whitby Scampi served here" sign so decided to drive down the road and found this hotel. It is accessible for me by a... More

My wife and I stayed here 18 months ago and always intended to return. We did the other night and it was just as enjoyable. A charming atmosphere with people running it who understand and love the building. The room was huge with a superb bathroom and all the mod cons you need with old fashioned style. We had a... More

We visited a craft fair at the hotel and enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea while we were there. This prompted us to return later for evening meal which was a real treat. Excellent food and great service, we felt very much at home. The views from the dining room are lovely and it's a very peaceful location even though it's... More

We came as part of a group of about 20 people who have our ‘Christmas Party’ here every February, we all love this place and come year on year. This is our fourth visit here and I’m glad to say, nothing has changed. It still has the same quaint, quirky, idiosyncratic charm that makes this hotel so different, so special,... More
