We have stayed in Sneaton Castle Centre three times recently and were more than happy with each of our visits there. The staff are very friendly and helpful, going beyond the call of duty to help, on several occasions. We stayed in the St Francis building, in very attractive, well-equipped, warm ensuite rooms; impeccably clean and bright. The breakfasts were... More

Upon on arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, our room in the St Francis building, was lovely and warm, not to mention spotlessly clean. Our breakfast which was delicious, was served in the Garden Room, which again was spotless, the ladies serving breakfast, were again all very friendly.

Sneaton Castle Centre is, essentially, a religious retreat centre located on the outskirts of Whitby. The extensive buildings obviously have a lot of history but have been generously updated to provide accomodation rather on par with a student hall of residence. The accomodation is rather spartan, very small single rooms wit minimal furnishings and bathroom facilities down the corridor. In... More

Thank you for your review. The rooms in the main house are indeed very simple. We have a four star hostel rating on these rooms and this is reflected in the price. We usually describe the rooms as no frills, basic but very clean! This house is used primarily by large Christian groups, schools, music groups etc. For a touch... More

The center is in wonderful grounds with walks over looking the sea, the accommodation in St Francils House is 1st class. Some of the group members used the single rooms but these have no private facilities but... More

I Stayed in st bede's as part of a large group booking. The room was small but adequate and very clean. The rooms are not en suite but there was a wash basin in the room. The accommodation block was quiet and parking secure. The only downside was that my room was next to the toilet and the pipes are... More

Many thanks for your kind words about our Reception staff. We're really sorry that you found the food disappointing. I know that the Duty Manager would have done her utmost to improve the breakfast service had you spoken to her following your first breakfast with us. As the bacon is thick cut we generally serve one slice but be assured... More
