Kev and Tish the owners of the lovely Bats and Broomsticks we're very lovely and accommodating. They helped us to get from the train station to the B and B, gave us a list of a dog friendly restaurants and even had a dog dish in the room for our dog Ralphey. The gothic B and B was like a... More

Not much to say that hasn't been said ! From check in to check out everything was first class. We will be back.One problem was we didn't get to use our Vampire staking kit as we missed out seeing Dracula. Solar room was very nice comfortable bed and excellent facilities. We did see Dracula albeit on DVD from the massive... More

Brilliant B & B, if you are looking for a Goth experience, you have to come here. Rooms and dining room are fantastic as is the service. The breakfast is to die for!! We really enjoyed our time here and will be back :-D.

This was the third time we've stayed at Bats & Broomsticks over the years. We've had the same room each time, and it's changed slightly each time, with new décor and little touches adding to the haunting atmosphere - the coffin shaped sofa is quite a feature. We had our own spacious bathroom, and, given the wild January weather, the... More

Me and my wife stayed here in addition to 2 other locations during our trip to Yorkshire. For me, this was the best stay. It's probably not for all, but because of it's niche appeal, it does what it's meant to do very well indeed. I enjoyed it much more than staying in a blank, white standard hotel room. Hosting...

Had an amazing stay at Bats and really cant wait to go back. The fabuloius breakfast kept us going all day and Kev was so friendly and knowledgeable that we simply cant find fault with anything. It is unique and quirky and very clean, loved the candlelit breakfast and rocking out to an eclectic taste in music. Memorable. Will be... More

We've stayed at Bats & Broomsticks many, many times before and always had a great stay - this time was no exception. We stayed in the Dracula room (so we've now stayed in the complete set) which was fantastic. Kev is a great host and knows Whitby very well, he's always able to recommend a place to visit or somewhere... More

We came across Bats and Broomsticks whilst looking for a reasonable place for a one-night stay in Whitby, and were immediately entranced by the idea of a gothic-themed B&B, as were our teenagers. The place certainly lived up to our expectations!. We stayed in the Green Man room, and our teenage girls had the Dracula room next door. The rooms... More
