Chose this hotel as I could book 3 persons to a room, which is not available in many hotels. It is a very basic hotel, very clean has tea and coffee facilities in the room. 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

Lovely exterior, Georgian? Inside, lots of original features. Complementary continental breakfast, or you could order 'full English'. Rooms comfortable,if a bit cramped, bathroom ok- no bath and quite small, but on the whole, good. Central for all of Whitby.

Was very disappointed with the hotel. The room was ok. We was on the 2nd floor and the noise from the pub was terrible as we was right underneath. We was there with my family and 5month old baby. The pub closed at 2am on the Monday morning then you heard them leaving. The room was very cold I asked... More

Very sorry state of affair. Very little choice from day 1. All 3 mornings I had to ask for the table to be cleaned before I sat down. On the 1st 2 mornings there were few guests, so no excuse, the 3rd & final morning was busy & the very young staff member seemed inexperienced. Choice of 2 sliced breads,... More

Just had our 2nd stay at the George..... last year we were on the first floor and struggled a bit with late night bar noise, but this time we were on the top floor. No noise at all heard this year so slept well. Both years we had no complaints at all with facilities.... always found it to be clean,... More

Firstly a continental breakfast should include croissants.All we had were loaves of bread on the table and a toaster,fruit dishes that were empty and not re-filled and also 3 jugs of fruit juice which were also empty and cereals.Coffee was available...

I have recently returned from a 2 night stay in one of the 3 bed attic rooms at the George Hotel. Check in was quick and painless, the trek to our room was not. Although I suffer from arthritis, I consider myself fit and healthy at 60, indeed within the last year have climbed several mountains in our beautiful Lake... More

When we arrived at the hotel I had to wait 10 minutes for the lad behind the desk to finish whatever he was doing. Then given a key and told room number. The room was ok, fine for the stay. The only problem I felt was that this place is very much focused on the pub side of the place.... More
