This was not our first time at the Arches and I must say it never fails to impress. From the greeting from Dave, the attention to detail in the rooms and the heplfulness from all the staff it's a winner. You just can't beat a warm welcome, a comfy bed, a clean bathroom and a hearty breakfast what more could... More

This was our third visit to the Arches over the last few years albeit the first two when it was under previous ownership. Once again it did not disappoint in any way. Our acid test of any holiday accommodation is whether we are able to recommend it to friends without any reservations as to quality in all respects, we have... More

We stayed here for 1 night in the family room on bank holiday Monday. From the greeting by Dave (owner) and staff, when we arrived to the moment we left everything was spot on. The family room, 1 double and 2 singles was spacious with an immaculate on suite shower room, in fact everything was spotless everywhere. I really can't... More

The welcome and facilities are excellent, anything you need just ask and Dave and his staff will be only too happy to help.Everything is spotless and the breakfast is second to none... More

Just returned from another stay at The Arches. Everything to the usual high standard. Do not be put off by the new parking restrictions in and around Whitby as now you will be provided with a parking permit which allows you to park at or near to the guesthouse. We found that even on a busy bank holiday Saturday car... More

As we had not stayed here since David and Laura took over the business we were not sure whether the previous standard had been maintained. We were very pleased to find that the whole property had been redecorated. By coincidence we were given the room we had four years ago. It was kept beautifully clean and the sheets and towels...
