Good guest house with spacious rooms and very clean. Kev and Carol very friendly and helpful. Walking into town is only 10 minutes. Great if you like traditional English breakfasts but we would have preferred other cooked options. Overall I would recommend this as a place to stay.

Great seven nights at Holmleigh in Whitby. Kev and Carol made us so welcome, such a lovely couple we hit it off with them straight away they were so welcoming . Lovely clean room, very comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was very good and so much of it, set us up for the day. Nothing was ever too much trouble... More

We stayed here for three nights at the end of May. This was our second stay with Kev and Carol and another great holiday. Lovely clean, quiet room, great breakfasts and great to know our car was parked on the drive at the front for our stay. Five minute walk from the town, couldn't ask for better accommodation. Hope to... More

Great to see Kev and Carol again, as usual the standard of accommodation are excellent, and so welcoming. As been mentioned previously, breakfasts are excellent, and loads of choice. Rooms are spotlessly clean. The great advantage with the Holmleigh is it has it's own off road parking, which in Whitby is a great advantage. We will definitely be returning later... More

We have just booked our second stay at Holmleigh. Carol & Kevin are lovely welcoming and very helpful people, the family room has plenty of space and easily accommodates the three of us! Breakfast is delicious and Plentiful, the B&B is spotless and well cared for. I can not sing their praises highly enough a lovely place and highly recommended.

Once again, thanks to Kev and Carol for a great stay at the Holmleigh. The weather was lovely, and it was a 60s music weekend, so loads going on. As I have said previously, I can listen to this fella's stories whilst having a lovely breakfast. He brings a ray of sunshine to start my day off. As for the... More

If you can find a better B & B in Whitby I'd be very surprised. We had a brilliant 3 nights at the Holmleigh with two very good hosts in Kevin and Carol. Our room was spacious enough for 3 of us with an equally roomy en-suite. everything was spotlessly clean and nothing too much trouble for Kevin and Carol.... More
