Gary & Karren are wonderful hosts the breakfast was excellent and the room bright and clean.. Despite putting a lot of effort into raising the standard of accommodation in the town I believe the local council are letting them down because they seem to be doing nothing to control the seagull population which unfortunately kept us awake most of the...

A tastefully decorated B&B in a perfect location and with hosts who apparently think about everything! Loved all the finishing touches like the folder suggesting things to do, the Tassimo drinks maker, daily weather and tide update or the lavender pillow mist. Impressive amount of breakfast choices including daily specials. And it all started with a very warm welcome over... More

What a wonderful stay again at The Leeway! It's a tremendous place where one can relax and always be sure of top hospitality (starting with the welcome drink and gorgeous cake), top quality and comfort in the beautiful, designer-decorated rooms with deep-comfort beds, and top satisfaction after the delicious, wholesome breakfasts. You have done it again, Karen & Garry, and... More

What a great place to stay. Lovely welcome by Karen with a huge piece of chocolate cake & coffee.

Also home made jams & marmalades etc. Karen & Garry are... More

Cannot praise The Leeway highly enough. Everything was perfect from the welcome of coffee and cake and genuine warmth that Karen and Garry give with ease to our room with en-suite that was top notch. The thought and extra little touches made this a place somewhere we will return to and one that we would highly recommend.

Stayed for 3 nights, warm welcome with home-made chocolate cake. Room on top floor (Hudson) small but comfortable. Small bathroom but adequate. Only roofwindow, no streetview. Very varied breakfast. Recommended!

Just got back from the Soul Weekend which was fab, and made all the better by staying at The Leeway. Can't praise it highly enough, from the warm welcome, comfortable room, don't think I've slept so well in ages, and lovely breakfast with great choices. I've booked again for next year and can't see me staying anywhere else now. Thank... More

We arrived about six o clock on the third leg of our road trip coming from South Shields to Whitby and that Karen who we've just met says, " Would you like a cup of tea"? Well I mean what sort of question is that? Of course we do and so we settle down to a nice cup of tea... More

This was our first stay at The Leeway and we have to say it was a great experience from the warm greeting we got from Gary on our arrival after a long journey to the amazing room (the abbey) we stayed in. The breakfast was perfect to start our day of... More
