I stayed here about 10 years ago when Garry and Karen first took over and always remembered what a nice b & b it was. It was, if possible, even better this time! I stayed 4 nights during folk week. The welcome is superb, and as others have said nothing is too much trouble. A request for a sheet (weather... More

We arrived late but we were given a homely welcome. The rooms are 5 star and spotlessly clean. The breakfast and presentation was spot on. The scrambled eggs were fantastic. Would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Whitby. We are hoping to stay again ASAP. All the best Donna & Terry Wilson.

We have stayed here multiple times and can not fault it. It is clean, stylish and extremely welcoming. Best B&B we have ever stayed in! The couple who own it are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much for them. They made us feel very special as it was our anniversary. We will certainly be back again!

Well its all true !, from the welcoming chocolate cake, the excellent breakfasts, ( you must try the salmon & scrambled eggs, - don`t miss out on this treat ),the amazing decor. The rooms are all individually themed, and the style sets the Leeway apart from the rest. The rooms are well kitted out, and very comfortable, Gary and Karen... More

We enjoyed a 3 night stay at The Leeway as part of a birthday visit to Whitby and it was definitely a great choice. Having read other reviews we felt optimistic before we arrived and we were not disappointed. Garry kindly welcomed us on arrival and explained all we needed to know to enjoy our stay in Whitby. We were... More

Everything that has been said about this B+B is definitely true. Karen and Garry go that extra mile to make your stay special. It was a little break to celebrate my husband's retirement and even that did not go unnoticed by this lovely couple,making the breakfast really special. Cannot add anything else that hasn't been mentioned already. Just perfect!.l

The attention to detail is second to none and would recommend it to anyone. The room was spotless and well equipped , breakfast was excellent and being gluten free was no... More
