The combination of a brisk cold sea breeze, picturesque harbour town, superb local scenery, historic settings, ideal walking routes and the iconic buildings make Whitby the ideal place to visit just before Christmas. With the festoon of coloured lights along the narrow cobbled streets and the incredible number of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars and inns, most of which are well... More

My wife and I spent a memorable four nights last week at this elegant and stylish B&B. Garry and Karen are warm and welcoming. Great breakfast options and well cooked and presented. They thoroughly deserve all their awards, and this is the place to stay in Whitby.

On our arrival at The Leeway we were greeted by Garry, welcomed into the dining room and offered a cup of tea with a slice of homemade cake. The room was very clean, nicely decorated, furnished with excellent facilities and included a tassimo drinks machine as an excellent addition. The breakfasts are freshly cooked to order with an extensive choice... More

Recommended by friends, it was the ideal place to stay. Short walk from the centre, with many bars and restaurants. Garry and Karen pride themselves on their attention to detail, spotlessly clean, very well organised and lovely surroundings. Breakfast was a delight, and the coffee machine in our room was an added bonus. We will return.

Another wonderful weekend in Whitby made all the better by our staying at The Leeway. Nothing is too much trouble for Gary and Karen coupled with the delightful rooms and really tasty breakfast makes the Leeway a very hard place to beat when looking for accommodation in Whitby and the surrounding area. Would recommend staying here to anyone..

We had to rebook the weekend after a cancelled visit in October and Garry & Karen were really good about it, in fact once again they were the perfect hosts. We stayed in the attic room which was more the adequate, the best thing about this room was that it was nice and quiet. All the usual things available at... More

Stayed here a couple of years ago and found that the high standards have been maintained. Everything. Room, breakfast etc can't be faulted. Also friendly and attentive hosts. Hope to stay here again sometime.

Stayed for two nights in the Leeway, amazing from start to finish. Gary carried our cases in for us and showed us into the dining room where we had coffee and amazing homemade cake. This was a wonderful touch after our journey. He then showed us to our room again carrying our cases. The room was lovely and spotless. Again... More
