My friend and I stayed 24-27 July in a twin bedded room overlooking the car park, which wasn't a problem as we weren't in the room that much. Good size room and bathroom, clean and had the usual tea/coffee, which is appreciated. We had to prop the window open as it was warm through the night and the window wouldn't... More

We wanted to go away for our anniversary so we decided to go to Whitby as we wanted to see where "Heartbeat" was filmed. After visiting the travel agent, the Royal Hotel was chosen as it was in Whitby.. I phone the Royal Hotel to arrange for a bouquet of flowers for our anniversary to be in our room on... More

Overall we didn't have much to complain about. Our room had a sea view and facilities were fine. Enjoyed the entertainment very much. The staff, especially in the dining room, were excellent. Our only complaint would be about some of the food. Wouldn't have thought a hotel could get some components of a full English breakfast wrong , especially the... More

We stayed at this hotel between 11 July 2015 to 18 July 2015. We upgraded to a sea view which was on the top floor,fine for us but perhaps not to everyone's liking,although there is a lift. This is a large twin bedded room with a spacious bathroom. Being picky a larger wardrobe would have been handy,but it worked out... More

Stayed 13th to 17th July. The hotel is in an ideal location with views across the sea, harbour and also the abbey. No problems at check in.There is a revolving door at the entrance to the hotel, but also a normal door to the side of this. So why people make an issue of this, is beyond me. The lift... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. This is a Shearings hotel and therefore appears to mainly cater for coach parties. Our main reason for staying was that with a sea view room,which we booked, looking over the harbour to Whitby Abbey, you get a magnificent view. The staff are very helpful and friendly, but the hotel decor is overdue for... More

This is a Shearings Hotel....as such Shearings plus National coaches come and go at all times. I got wet through making several trips to the car to bring our luggage in. No porter around only a receptionist but no offer made whatsoever to assist me. (I am 77 my husband is 84 with a serious chest complaint.) Forward to the... More
