Sneaton Castle is far away from Whitby's attractions. You have to use your car or public transport to get down to the harbour. We booked it as B&B via the tourist information - they said that it was not en suite - which was okay for us. All the other B&Bs in town were full. When we were shown our... More

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the staff and the breakfast. We're also pleased that you felt the house was well kept. The Centre is only 1 mile out of town, an easy walk down hill. Buses don't run late and a taxi back will cost approx. £5.50. I'm sorry that you were offered bunk beds. It was a... More

Booked this place for 4 of us as b & b's were very pricey in Whitby. Driving up (the centre is at the far end of the town) the setting is lovely, picturesque and easy to find. Our accommodation was in a courtyard and looked lovely. However on entering it was very basic, a lounge with a tv and mismatched... More

Thank you for your feedback. The accommodation you booked is four star hostel which is why it is basic and cheaper than other b and bs in town. We describe the accommodation as basic, no frills but clean. Hopefully, this was the description you received on booking, apologies if not. We don't include tea trays in the price as we... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring whitby and the Cleveland way. Found this place to be excellent. Very comfy bed with great shower and they provide a generous cooked breakfast choosing from eggs, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans, cereals, toast, fruits and yoghurt juices and coffee as part of the deal. You can also pay for dinner... More

After falling across this wonderful place by accident we were surprised they had availability on a bank holiday weekend. The accommodation is simple comfortable and clean and reasonably priced with a wonderful breakfast, the staff we found were all wonderful and happy to help, we will definitely return to stay here.

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

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
