I booked this hotel in May 2013 but forgot to leave my review :( I stayed here for one night as I had booked to watch an open air show at the Abbey. Upon arrival the hotel was nice and easy to find although parking at 1pm on a sunny day proved tricky. The hotel itself is above a pub... More

Having recently stayed at this establishment with my husband we could not wait to get out of there. I made the mistake of not checking Trip Advisor before I booked and will never make that mistake again. The hotel is basically rooms above a pub which has a licence until 2am, we were woken by the occasional person outside, but... More

This is a lovely place, it felt friendly straight away. It has pretty much whatever you are looking for in a visit/night out etc. Some good memories have been made for me in this place, I will definitely be visiting again!

We booked this hotel for a family of four for an overnighter in Whitby. Some of the reviews were worrying and because of this we had very low expectations. However we were pleasantly surprised. The booking in took less than a minute. The hotel part of this building is quiet and seperate from the pub downstairs and the room, was... More

I forget how many times we have stayed at this hotel. 16 of us this year and it was great again. Clean comfy rooms. Good lively bar downstairs. Breakfast nicely cooked and presented. Exactly what we all wanted and got. We are already planning our stay again next September. Special thanks to Alison who sorts out my booking. With 16... More

It's in a great location in Baxtergate, close to train station and large over night car park. great price and great breakfast. Ask for room... More

Not overly expensive and situated in a busy part of the town. Rooms cleanish, although carpets are dirty. Not ideal for anyone who doesn't like stairs either. Don't get a room in the front above the entrance, there is a nightclub in the hotel and when people are leaving or coming out for a fag they tend to have no... More
