I've stayed a a number of B&B's in Whitby and the UK; they were all different and mainly good but High Tor is definitely the best. In fact it's excellent. If you are looking for a B&B in Whitby, do not hesitate, book here! The outside of the building is very welcoming and well kept.We received a warm and pleasant... More

We enjoy going to Whitby and staying at High Tor is always first class. Sue & Gary are excellent hosts. We used to stay in room 1. Sue showed us around and now we stay in room 2 very luxurious. Matching bath robes is just that finishing touch. Breakfast is first class and nothing is never too much!! We have... More

Nothing is too much trouble for Gary and Sue. Booked on line and phoned to make certain that they received the request for twin beds. Explained that I have a hip problem, and was offered the ground floor room No. 7. The room was immaculate. Breakfast was superb, with plenty of choices. Have stayed in quite a few guest houses...

We stayed in this B&B for 2 nights in room 4. The room was spotless and very comfortable, large bathroom with twin sinks and a very large shower, the room was overlooking the road but still very quiet and we slept very well on both nights. The B&B is just a short walk (less than 5 mins) to the centre... More

Everything about High Tor was above and beyond what you would usually find in a small guesthouse. It is also very conveniently situated within Whitby - we didn't move our car for the whole of our stay. The owners are very considerate and helpful, making sure my husbands food allergies were catered for. We will definitely be hoping they have... More

We stayed in this B&B for 2 nights early June after we had been to Cyprus to get married. The owners are both lovely and made our stay an excellent one. The cleanliness of the place is excellent, the breakfast was great and nothing seemed like too much trouble for them. The advise on places to eat and things to... More

We are already planning when we are going back - we just love Whitby and the guest house location is excellent for just parking the car and forgetting it. Everything you want to see in Whitby is within easy walking distance. Sue came out to greet us when we arrived, which was really nice, and immediately got us fixed up... More

We booked for 2 nights at High Tor Guesthouse and enjoyed staying there very much. It was a very convenient location for the town centre and West Cliff area. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. We stayed in room 3 at the back of the house which was very quiet. We would certainly... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We usually stay in hotels, so the guest house experience was relatively new and we liked this place a lot. It's small but cosy and absolutely spotless. The house itself is beautifully re-furbished and lovingly cared for. Breakfast is good - especially the fresh fruit salad - and real attention to detail shows through.... More
