Just got back from a lovely weekend at Whitby. We stayed at High Tor after reviewing B&Bs on Trip Advisor. I chose High Tor and we were not disappointed. Great location, friendly welcome, fantastic room (Room 4), free parking and a huge choice of food for breakfast. I thought the pricing to be fair and would use again.

This is our fourth visit to High Tor, and this time we stayed in Room 6 at the top of the house. Absolutely fabulous, but you must be fit to get up three flights!!!!! We have now stayed in Rooms 1, 3 and 6; I think my favourite is room 3. All are superbly appointed, real luxury for a very,... More

One of the most friendly and welcoming guest houses we've visited. Good location a very short walk from the town. Pleasant rooms, lovely hosts and a great breakfast to top it off. Would strongly recommend and will certainly be coming back to visit very soon.

We were in room 3 and it was lovely, the decor had just been done and was spotless. The following morning we went down to breakfast and met... More

Everything about High Tor is excellent. The guest house is immaculately clean, the food is first class and Sue and Gary are very welcoming hosts. We went for a week-end break and enjoyed it so much we returned four weeks later, marvellous!

We have just returned from our second stay at High Tor. Once again we were not disappointed. The guest house is still immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Sue and Gary are great hosts, they make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble during your stay. We would definitely stay here again.

The first thing that strikes you when you walk up to the guest house is how immaculate it is, inside and outside. When the owners open the door you can see straight away how cosy it is too. This is by far the cleanest cosiest guest house we have ever stayed in, I can not fault it and I am... More
