Just come back from an overnight stay at the Waverley, what a wonderful place to stay. Tania and David are excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms were lovely and clean with amazing views. Breakfast was superb with plenty to choose from. Would definitely go back. Linda & Phil

We stayed at the Waverley in October. It was our first visit to Whitby and we were delighted to find ourselves in a characterful "Bed and Breakfast" Actually, the Waverley is more bijou hotel than b&b, with lots of additional features in the room - cards, clothes brush and shoe shine in the drawers for example and other thoughtful touches...

The rear bedrooms at the Waverley overlook Whitby town and have exceptional views of the Abbey and surrounding countryside. There is a warm welcome and these views together with a a clean and comfortable room make the Waverley a great place to stay. P&K

From the warm welcome to the superb breakfast the Waverly made our photography trip to Whitby a fantastic weekend. The room was spacious and contemporary with many extra's we weren't expecting. I would recommend The Waverley if your thinking of going to Whitby, it's fab!
