This is the fifth year in a row that we have stayed at the Saxonville and it never disappoints. The staff are very welcoming and remember you from year to year. The facilities have been updated slightly (including free Wi-Fi in the public areas) and it is still a lovely place to stay within walking distance of the town. We... More

Well positioned with parking available, room was excellent and service at breakfast with my dietary requirements was faultless. One block back from the beach and a 5 min walk to the harbour ensured a quiet night.

Recently had a weekend break in Whitby choosing The Saxonville based on reviews here. Booked two single rooms and found them clean and tidy with a very efficient housekeeping operation. Off street parking was a real bonus as Whitby operates a disc parking scheme. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice efficiently served by the staff each morning. A... More

We had a last minute booking on this hotel when we parked outside i thought oh no?. But it may be old fashioned but other than that it was all excellent after. The extras in the room very nice touch eg alippers and robe. The bathroom was spotless and biscuits to have with the tea in the room gorgeous. The... More

What you need to know upfront is that I gave this hotel a four-star rating because the staff here is wonderful; they are all professional, welcoming and personable. They are available and responsive to your needs and seem to sincerely want you to be having a perfect time. The rating is also based on the included breakfasts, which are delicious... More

Very overpriced for a pretty old fashioned hotel. Not very soundproof. We stayed in Room 11 which was small but OK however the loose boards above us meant we could hear every step taken. Muffled voices and TV sounds too from adjacent room. Breakfast good and surprisingly liked the at table service but restaurant/breakfast room gets very hot. Wifi extended... More

The rooms and beds are clean and it's good for just somewhere to put your head, but it's very expensive for what it is. The decor is outdated and feels like an old people's home, there is no wifi in the rooms (something which is standard in many £5 hostels across the world so should be standard in a hotel... More

We stayed for 1 night at the Saxonville Hotel a few days ago. The hotel is in a brilliant location with just being off the promenade and has excellent parking arrangements on a private car park just over the road from the hotel. The hotel downstairs was pleasant but it was dated. After a friendly welcome we were disappointed upon... More
