Wouldn't stay anywhere else after the Leeway. Karen and Garry are fantastic hosts with a wealth of knowledge on Whitby and the surrounding area. They really care about the experience of their guests and the attention to detail and the personal touch is very refreshing - birthday sprinkles on the breakfast table with a bottle of bucks fizz for me...

Luxury at The Leeway. Had a 1 night stay with friends from Budapest. Everything from the welcome, the room and the gourmet breakfast made us very proud to be British. We were all very impressed. Many thanks.

This place is truly exceptional. I've never stayed at a place where you're so looked after, where everything is so right, such attention to detail and it's unbelievable value for money. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Whitby, it's that good. Perfect room, breakfast, hosts. I could go on. In fact, I will. It's one of the finest establishments... More

Couldn't have asked for better at this chic and welcoming guest house. We got a lovely cup of tea and big slice of chocolate cake on our arrival and a good chat with Garry who was really helpful in telling us the best places to see and who gave us a whole list of restaurants with reviews from other guests...

This was a lovely place to stay. Excellent service and breakfast. It was easy to see how it had already received so many awards. The whole place was very clean. We would recommend it to anyone staying in Whitby.

What can we say about the Leeway, just brilliant from every aspect. From the moment we entered the front door, we were greeted by Garry, who kindly took our cases and took them into the dining room. We were then offered a cup of tea and some of Karen's home made cakes, delicious, just what the doctor ordered after a... More

This was our third stay at the Leeway , we found that the high standards that Garry and Karen have set have been upheld , both in the great classy bedrooms through to the delicious breakfast , also the little touches of cake on arrival all knit together to make it a great place to stay.
