Warm and friendly greeting, rooms are overpriced - TV could have been bigger, wardrobes we're stiff to unlock. But bathroom was beautiful. Breakfast overall enjoyable, wide variety of options to pick from, although would have liked extra portions on the cooked breakfast. Thought the homemade cakes we're a nice touch and delicious.

First time that we have stayed at Abbotsleigh. Really enjoyed our stay and would rate it the best of several excellent places that we have stayed at in Whitby. Lovely welcome and attention from Sharon and Paul. The room that we stayed in - Sea Biscuit - was really spacious with tons of storage space. Bathroom had a great walk... More

We can't recommend this hotel enough. Everything was perfect, room, breakfast, location etc. Paul and Sharon are great hosts and do their best to ensure you are happy. When we return to Whitby we will certainly try and stay again. You know, its the details that matter, e.g. for me stress-free parking is a top priority having had issues with... More

This is truly a very special place to stay. Sharon and Paul looked after us fantastically and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was perfect, special, individual and luxurious. We loved the homemade biscuits and cakes which were out of this world. The breakfast was absolutely top class and it's wonderful to have a choice. The smoked salmon and... More

We have stayed in Whitby before on several occasions and not had a place to stay that was anything like at welcoming, comfortable and just right on every level as we have had over the last three nights at Abbotsleigh. Thank you Paul and Sharon for all the little touches as well as getting the big stuff spot on. Dr... More

I had an absolutely lovely time at Abbotsleigh. The owners, Paul and Sharon go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect for you. It's a lovely welcoming place, with character and an incredible breakfast (make sure to try the herb waffles - they ruined other breakfast for me for life :P).

We decided to celebrate two big family birthdays at Paul and Sharon's gorgeous B and B. It was such a good decision, as well as the lovely surroundings, super attention to detail and amazing breakfasts there were lots of special touches that made our stay extra special. All of our party of 9 (we took over all the rooms) were... More

We stayed with Sharon and Paul for two nights a few weeks ago. On arrival our welcome was fantastic with the best home made cake ever, tea and a welcome chat with hosts. The dining room is classy with beautiful china and immaculate table cloths. Our room was amazing, so much detail and thought to making it comfortable and obviously... More
