It is very well located... More

Excellent attention to detail from start to finish. We would recommend 'The Leeway' to anyone who likes first class service along with comfort.

We stayed at the Leeway as our friends had recommended this to us. Everything from the room to the breakfast to the hosts were lovely, we simply couldn't fault it. Garry and Karen are the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble, you were made to feel very welcome and we would have no hesitation in going back!!!

Very well presented and good service. The beds were very comfortable and there were no noises to disturb our sleep. Although parking is problematical, Gary did his best to sort us out. Hopefully we will be back!

The welcome and service were second to none. Breakfast was excellent the daily special on Thursday morning was fab and set... More

OK - we've stayed at the Leeway many times, but this is not to say that we recommend this excellent guest house out of habit... If there was any change, any slight slip in standards, then we'd notice. On the contrary - the breakfasts just get better (more choice than many a swankier hotel); the comfort and service provided is... More

Our recent holiday to Whitby was extremely enjoyable. On arrival at the Leeway Gary took our suitcase up to our room and promptly offered us a cup of good old "Yorkshire Tea" and a piece of delicious carrot cake a very good start to our stay. Gary and Karen had thought of every single thing that a traveller requires. All... More

Stayed at he leeway for 3 nights at the end of August, on arrival met by Gary who whisked our bags away to our room, within 5 minutes we were offered a hot drink and piece of home made cake by Karen. Karen was so helpful in helping us with our plans, and with her help we changed some plans... More
