We arrived to a freezing cold room, radiators weren't turned on. Landlady quickly got us a radiator but feel this room should have been warm on our arrival - like the rest of the rooms she informed us! This apart the room was lovely altho it cud have done with a quilt. Fantastic shower. Lovely breakfast in a nice breakfast... More

We have stayed at this guest house in Spring 2013 and Autumn 2014 and the pick a number charging system has put us off staying there ever again. We were keen to book again for Spring 2015 but the price we were quoted had almost doubled from our first stay and NOTHING had changed or been updated. The Guest House... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I would like to point out that our rack rate prices have not changed for 8 years. We, of course, offer discounts out of season and for booking multiple rooms, which the majority of places do. Please ensure that you are booking directly through ourselves and not an agent. We...

A short walk to the center of Whitby, a nice place to stay. We were there for 2 nights, and the only downside is that we were on the ground floor next to the door, so heard everyone coming and going in the night. Ask to be not here if you remember as it did disturb sleep! Over all very... More

We arrived after 5 as check in was between 12-1 or after 4, giving plenty of time to prepare the room. We were greeted by the owner who showed us to our room, "little beck", which was rather on the small side and somewhat foisty smelling. I went to freshen up in the bathroom and discovered to my disgust, a... More

This was our second visit to Hillcrest. Our last visit was same weekend last year. We had the executive Whitby room last year which was absolutely beautiful but we decided to book a standard room this year (Aislaby room) This room was smaller though the decoration, bed linen, high standard bathroom were all as good. When we returned to our... More

We arrived late Friday evening and, although I am disabled no help was given to our room. An executive four poster on 1st floor. There were no details of local restaurants within the guest home, so we set off to find food which was easy to do. Breakfast is served between 9 and 9.30 everyday, so don't be late. Mind... More

I don't normally do guest houses and therefore have nothing to compare it with but, I expected better and the price I paid, it should have been better. Parking was an issue. Basically not enough space or spaces for the people staying, especially those with big cars. Our room wasn't as clean as it should be. Drawers hadn't been emptied... More
