We booked via the internet which was easy and spent 3 days at the Waverley (9-11 Sept). David met us at the front door and made us feel at home immediately and even carried a heavy travel case to our room. We later met Tania who also was very welcoming and they both helped us choose paces to eat and... More

We stayed in early September for 4 nights Friday to Mon, we have stayed in a numbers of B&Bs in Whitby and most have been OK but this is the best that we have visited. The room was spacious and clean and we couldn't fault the tasty breakfast, we didn't need anything to eat until late afternoon. The hosts are... More

Three day break with my friends of a certain age, the facilities at the Waverley were just what we needed for our walking, resting and eating away from it all break. B&B exactly what one should be: clean, fresh, friendly good food and lovely little touches provided AND Tania and David are from Derbyshire (and a bit of Notts) so... More

Having recently spent three nights in the single ensuite room (number 2) I have nothing but praise for David and Tania's establishment. From the telephone booking process, to the bill paying experience on departure, everything was dealt with with a smile and good humour. The room was the largest ensuite single room I have ever stayed in, at a B&B,... More

We stayed for 2 nights early September, booked due to the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by a warm and welcoming David who took us to our room and sorted out our car parking before being extremely helpful with the tourism side, recommending places to see and how to get there. The room... More

We were greeted by David on arrival who helped us with bags to our room. Due to our lateness of booking we had the last room left, top floor small room and ensuite but we were also allowed to use another room for our bags which gave us more room in our room. The view from our bay window allowed... More

We stayed at the Waverley the last weekend in August. We had a single room, number 2 and a twin room, number 3 on the first floor looking out towards Whitby Abbey. The rooms were spotlessly clean. There was a bath in room 2 which was nice and big. Just what you need after a long day. It was my... More

Despite the position of the property for parking if you book in good time a place for the car can be reserved at the rear of the building. The brochure says 'arrive as guests & leave as friends' & that is certainly the case. David & Tanya mine hosts welcome you to the Waverley with rooms that are comfortable, modern,... More

We stayed for two nights last week in first floor comfortable spacious twin room with views toward Abbey, spotlessly clean room and en suite shower. Breakfast was an ample full English, well cooked, along with a cafetiere of decent coffee.to wash it down. Parking was no problem as David supplies a residents pass to use on the surrounding streets, I... More

We have just spent a week staying at the Waverley. Our double room was spotlessly clean , very comfortable and made a quiet haven when we wanted a rest from the folk festival, Excellent breakfasts. . Tania and David were excellent hosts providing a very friendly service. They did make us feel very welcome guests . Highly recommended. Paul and... More
