This B&B is the place to stay at in Whitby Just a short walk to the town center. Dave will (and did) go the extra mile to make your stay special and also provides a free parking permit. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious and Breakfast will set you up for the day. I would recommend and return here... More

I had a single room which was very comfortable and sufficient for my stay. The room was quiet. The owner and staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. The guesthouse was close to the town and public transport. Highly recommended.

Many upgrades to the accommodation have taken place since then and it is a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast beautifully cooked and presented,the...

My two teenagers and I stayed at The Arches for just one night, wish I'd booked more ! We stayed in room 9, which is a family room. It was very clean and comfortable, with a nice shower and toiletries. I got the best night's sleep in such a comfy bed. Breakfast was delicious with a wonderful bowl of fresh... More

Another great stay at this LOVELY and FRIENDLY guesthouse, the staff greet you and even checked us in outside the specified times. The rooms are always very clean and the staff are always on hand to top up with the room ingredients. The bed was very comfortable and the shower room was well laid out and very modern. The breakfast... More

This was my second stay at The Arches and it was so good the first time that I came back here for a second visit with my husband. The owner and the staff are so friendly and helpful and this played a major role in deciding to return. Our bedroom was well appointed and decorated and the bed was comfortable.... More

Each year, some friends and I have a weekend in Whitby. After trying several B&B's, the Arches is our favourite. Always a warm friendly welcome. Accommodation-exceptionally high quality, clean and comfortable-staff, nothing too much trouble. The breakfast is particularly good with choices to suit all people, rates very reasonable. I would highly recommend a visit
