From the warm welcome with a cuppa and a slice of homemade cake to the moment we left, we had a fabulous time at the Leeway! We stayed for the weekend in 'Cook' and the first thing I have to say is that the pictures on the website don't do it justice at all! There are lots of lovely little... More

It's been a while since I last wrote a review for the Leeway. In some ways nothing has changed - the welcome is still warm, the service still outstanding, the breakfasts are still excellent. Oh, and Karen's chocolate cake is still fantastic! But in other ways, the Leeway is always changing - Karen and Garry never stop looking for ways... More

What a little diamond this is and a lovely warm welcome back to the leeway. Gary and Karen go out of their way and always expect 100% in service. They go ape and beyond your expectations example your anniversary birthday etc is celebrated by bucks fizz and a dressed table how lovely!!!! Those little things you appreciate!!!! Thank you Karen...

Enjoyed another relaxing stay at the Leeway, this time in the newly refurbished Cook room. We love the forest theme decor and the new modern shower room. The option of an early check-in is much appreciated as it enables you to start your holiday as soon as you arrive and enjoy a full first day. As always Karen and Garry... More

Cannot find any fault with this lovely BnB. From the moment you walk in the door you are made to feel welcome. So many very nice touches from the cake on arrival to the Tassimo machine in the room. Very comfy beds n pillows. All rooms are done out in a different style to so the room you stay on... More

From arrival to departure we were looked after so well. Karen & Gary are the perfect hosts, tea/coffee with homemade cake on arrival and the best breakfast. There are a choice of rooms and you won't be disappointed with anyone of them, so very clean and a really good size. Situated for a perfect walk into town. A great visit... More

This is the third time in a row we have stayed at the Leeway and it was perfect. The room we have is lovely and the breakfasts are top notch. The lover hearts on the table on valentine's day along with the bucks fizz were an extra special touch!

As regular visitors to Whitby, we've always stayed at the same B&B and never disappointed. However, it was closed for this visit and we were recommended The Leeway as an alternative. Well, we've found another gem in Whitby because Karen and Gary certainly know how to make your visit all the more enjoyable. Great welcome with tea/coffee and homemade cake,... More

Would highly recommend The Leeway for anyone coming to Whitby. Room was immaculate, mattress, bedding etc were top quality and the en suite bathroom was again pristine all fittings and fixtures were gleaming. Added little touches such as a binder of local eateries and guest reviews was very helpful, having a taxi no machine in the room again another nice... More
