The stay at the Arches Guesthouse was great! I am looking forward to the day that I can get back to stay. The room was exceptionally clean. And, I am used to staying in 4 star plus hotels. Being a Starwood gold for life member, I am glad my cousin recommended this as a place to stay. 😊

Stayed here twice now and will go back again. Dave makes you very welcome. The breakfast sets you up for the day .We had the full English each morning with a choice of cereal and fresh fruit plus home made cake and jams.The rooms are very clean and tidy.

Good location, friendly welcome, excellent breakfast, clean room/shower. Room/shower /double bed small if you’re above average size.(room#6) Ask for a large room and twin beds (if available?) Would happily return.

Great location only 15minutes on foot from Train station. And easy to find and friendly staff awaits you and 5 minutes only from the beach. Shops very close by too but most of them close at 5pm. depending on season. A lovely place Whitby would go back again.

We stayed at the Arches over Easter for five nights in a family room (room 9 I think). We received a lovely welcome from Dave, he provided lots of useful information on the area, restaurants etc (most of which we tried so thank you). His staff were just as friendly during our stay. Breakfast was delicious and the service faultless.... More

We visited for the one night during Easter Bank holiday and were overwhelmed by how lovely 'The Arches' really is. We stayed in room suitably large enough including, a Double and 2 singles to accommodate my husband and myself and our 4 year old. The rooms are all furnished to a high standard and Dave the owner is very welcoming... More

As expected and never disappoints Dave and his staff provided us again with a fabulous place to stay. Different company with us this time but I know they were pleased with the choice of B&B. Spotless rooms, lovely shower, quality breakfasts with loads of choices. We will return, I should not really keep giving good reviews it means others will... More

Thanks for the review, could you possibly identify yourself to us please. I have no record of any dissatisfied guests, or complaints, or any remembrance of any issues being raised recently (at all in fact), so I am struggling to place you. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Appreciate that you're perplexed and don't understand why. More

We have just returned from another short break at The Arches - a perfect place to stay if you are looking for excellent standards, amazing breakfasts, spotlessly clean rooms and the friendliest team , who are effortlessly brilliant!. Nothing is too much trouble for them & we are looking forward to returning very soon. Thanks to all Dave!
