We stayed at The Leeway this weekend and honestly couldn't fault it. Garry and Karen were friendly and helpful, we were greeted with coffee n cake. Had a lovely warm quiet room typical of more expensive hotels. Fab mattress. Couldn't believe the choice for breakfast, was lovely, all served with a smile. Great location. Looking forward to our next visit.

Even before our arrival - Garry had been very helpful with leaving a parking permit for us to use. They gave us a warm welcome on arrival and our bedroom was clean and spacious with lovely Orla Kiely furnishings. The cooked breakfast was superb with the best bacon I've ever tasted at a B&B. Great that they are keen on... More

This was our second visit to the Leeway and it lived up to all our expectations. The room was clean and very comfortable with lots of facilities. The breakfasts were superb. It helped make our weekend in Whitby.

We had a fantastic stay at The Leeway a little weekend break for my birthday. We have had many holidays in Whitby! But this was our first stay at The Leeway. On arrival our greeting was warm and friendly, with a cuppa and choice of homemade cakes. Beautiful room and facilities, the attention to detail was very impressive. Breakfast was... More

From the warm welcome with a cuppa and a slice of homemade cake to the moment we left, we had a fabulous time at the Leeway! We stayed for the weekend in 'Cook' and the first thing I have to say is that the pictures on the website don't do it justice at all! There are lots of lovely little... More

It's been a while since I last wrote a review for the Leeway. In some ways nothing has changed - the welcome is still warm, the service still outstanding, the breakfasts are still excellent. Oh, and Karen's chocolate cake is still fantastic! But in other ways, the Leeway is always changing - Karen and Garry never stop looking for ways... More
