Visited Whitby in order to visit town and travel on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway. I booked at the last minute and stayed in a ground floor room with en-suite shower and toilet. Clean and pleasant room with TV and tea making facilities. Slight road noise, not awful but noticeable, probably because of a motorbike rally taking place in... More

My wife and I decided to weekend in Whitby at the last minute. We travel quite a bit worldwide for our respective jobs, but as I have not been well of late this was our first trip for six months and Whitby is one on my favourite places. We arrived late afternoon and were impressed by the lovely building. We... More

My Fiance booked this hotel as a special treat for my birthday and it didn't disappoint. The host was really welcoming and friendly and the breakfasts were very nice and plentiful. On arrival I was lucky enough to be given a choice of which room I would prefer and chose the Whitby purely for the nice big shower and bath... More

This was our second stay at Hillcrest in 2 years but the hosts were still happy and more than accommodating in making our stay as comfortable as always. We stayed in the same room, which had been redecorated, and was as cosy and comfortable as the previous stay. The breakfasts were more than adequate and we were always asked if... More

We chose this guesthouse as it was one of the only ones that we could find available for the bank holiday weekend. We found the guesthouse easily via sat nav and managed to get parked easily in one of the onsite parking spaces. The owner of the guesthouse was there to greet us which was a nice touch and showed...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As the summer season draws to a close, we will then be able to begin the annual maintenance of the property. We are sorry you found the mattress uncomfortable, but this seems to be personal choice. I can assure you that the heating was not on. Breakfast is cooked fresh... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend and we had a small but very comfortable room on the ground floor. Whilst the road was close we were not disturbed by any traffic noise. Very nice breakfast both days and worth getting up for. A relaxed and warm welcome made for a really nice weekend away. Nice place to stay... More
