Tania and David instantly made us feel at home upon arrival. The rooms were well equipped and spotlessly clean. After a good nights sleep in very comfortable beds we were treated to a top notch breakfast - cereals, fruit, toast and a lovely cooked full Yorkshire (English) breakfast. Other options for breakfast were available and the Smoked Kipper was most... More

The hotel is situated with 10 minutes stroll of the centre of Whitby where there is an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants in... More

Well, what absolute twaddle, the only part that you got correct was the breakfast description, fortunately for us & unfortunately for you all of our previous reviews from our lovely guests paint a very different picture, so I guess that nobody will find your contribution very helpful at all. Please do stop at one of the "classier" establishments next time... More

We were only able to stay one night at the Waverly but had a very good experience. The hosts were very nice and we were particularly impressed on how addressed us by our first name each time that they saw us. They were helpful from carrying our luggage, sorting out a parking pass (1 pound), and restaurant recommendations. They genuinely... More
