Stayed Friday 27th June for 3 nights. There were 5 in our party. Attentiion to detail perfect as usual. Warm welcome with refreshments with cake. One off the 3 rooms used had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. Patio outside is great - we were fortunate enough to be there in probably the best spell of weather we... More

We've now stayed at the Leeway twice. Lovely welcome with great friendliness and helpfulness from Karen and Garry. The excellent room facilities, overall cleanliness.....and the breakfasts, were really good. Ideally located for the Harbour and Seafront, Town Centre, and the Park. We highly recommend the Leeway

I stayed at the Leeway whilst visiting family in Whitby, what a superb find. Gary and Karen were excellent hosts. The bedroom was beautifully decorated with furnishings to very high standard with an extremely comfortable bed. Very clean, warm and quiet for a good nights sleep with added treats such as the Tassimo coffee machine, DVD player and luxury toiletries.... More

We have just returned from a weekend in Whitby, I booked the accommodation because of the tripadvisor reviews and I was not disappointed. The room was spacious and the bed was huge - so comfortable we didn't want to leave! Karen and Gary are very friendly and welcoming hosts, it is clear that they are doing a great job and... More

Returned to The Leeway for a one night stop over for my birthday on the 12th of June 2015 and once again had a fantastic stay. We have stayed here previously when visiting Whitby and have to say its not lost any of its class and high standards that we experienced first time around. You always get a warm welcome... More

Just got back from having a fantastic weekend in Whitby and the lovely accommodation of the The Leeway definitely played it's part. We stayed in the St.Mary's which is a modern, spacious room, with a very comfortable bed and for just £80 per night is excellent value for money. Parking is not included, but a scratch card is provided, so... More

Just had a lovely relaxing weekend at the Leeway. We stayed in the Hudson room which is the attic room (lots of stairs) but worth it when you get up there. The room is cosy and bright with everything you could need. Really enjoyed the Tassimo machine for drinks. The breakfasts are lovely from yogurts to full breakfasts with a... More
