Nice hotel and very welcoming also a great location for shops, bars and beach. A choice of where to have breakfast -either in the hotel or at the owners restaurant. We opted for the breakfast at the owners restaurant so we didnt have to rush in the morning-excellent breakfast with good service.

Upon entering the establishment we were met by Steve, with a warm welcome much needed after driving in fog and rain. Check in was easy and Steve answered all out questions there and then. We had come with our 2 children aged 13 and 7 years old and were in a family room well equipped with all we needed with... More

Room was quite compact but clean & modern, friendly would definitely not have a problem with staying there again. Only downside was the bed was on casters & the floor was laminate so kept sliding away from the wall.

Good location, 5 minute walk downhill into the town. We were part of a large group of friends all staying at the same hotel. Our room was a twin room at the front on the 2nd floor (no lifts) but was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast can be taken at the hotel or a late breakfast at the owners restaurant... More

Booked one night here as an extra ontop of our weeks stay in a holiday cottage in Whitby. Simply wanted a clean place to sleep and breakfast before our epic journey back to Cornwall. So the room was terrible, we barely slept. Ripped towels, broken shower, flat pillow, dirty blankets, dust everywhere. My children were crying as they couldn't sleep... More

We stay at the Esplanade recently for a last minute family weekend away. Booked via late rooms. We arrived after a long and delayed journey from the East Midlands, parked up on the front with no problem ( car didn't move again until we left as everything is close by) we were greeted by a friendly host who told us...

We stayed in a family room that was quite spacious considering it had 2 sets of bunks and a double bed in it. A room at the front 1st floor had enormous bay window. The furniture in the room had seen better days but it was adequate to our needs, fantastic shower in the ensuite. And being late risers we... More

I've read some other reviews that seem quite harsh. It is a straight forward guest house. It's clean with decent en-suite facilities and you get a good breakfast. We stayed in the family room which was fine for sleeping in. The proprietor was very pleasant. It's a short walk from the attractions of Whitby so we didn't need the car... More

Hi We have just returned from a two night break at the esplanade. We found the room very clean and ideal for a short break in this wonderful resort. We were offered the choice of a late breakfast down at the quaterdeck and after eating the superb breakfast it was all we needed until tea time. The staff at both... More
