We stayed at the Arches in October 2015, and found our host Dave most amenable with an encyclopaedic knowledge of Whitby, annotating little maps with the directions of where we wanted to go. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. One of the highlights was the breakfast with local produce which includes some great sausages. Well worth a stay.

We stayed for 2 nights along with 2 friends. They had room 2 which is a lovely sized room on the ground floor - we were a little disappointed in our room 6 at the top of the stairs as it was very small - or rather narrow really. The room was certainly large enough to accommodate the furniture but... More

My wife and I stayed three nights and we really liked the Arches Guest House. Pleasant landlord, not overbearing! Fabulous breakfast cooked to perfection everyday. We both had the small cooked breakfast option which was not particularly small but was smaller than the Large cooked breakfast. Not running with fat / oil and not over or under-cooked. The meals were... More

I stayed here this weekend with my little 4 year old granddaughter and we were made very welcome. The room was spotless, and the breakfast was perfect. Very friendly people and nothing is too much trouble for them both. My little granddaughter really enjoyed her adventure in Whitby and we would both fully recommend this lovely B&B.

We stayed here for four days at the start of August 2015 for a family get together - six adults from 25 to 75 across four rooms - it was a pleasant stay but not exceptional. The Arches is well located on Whitby West Cliff in an area surrounded by other guest houses and hotels. Street parking is available (permit... More
