We travelled on a cool, wet, Monday 22nd June, - on arrival that was quickly forgotten, as the room (1) was decorated/furnished to a high standard, (which we will probably copy at some point), the breakfast had everything and to top it all Sue & Gary were the perfect hosts. The only concern we have is that this Guest House... More

We love Whitby & what makes it even more special is Hi Tor. A cut above your average 'B&B'. Immaculately clean. Superb rooms & fantastic hosts in Gary & Sue. As l said,' A gem of the North'. Like all the guest houses in the area, there is limited permit parking, but Hi Tor supply the appropriate ticket but space... More

I have been visiting Whitby since I was a child and stayed at many B&Bs, but I have to say that High Tor was head and shoulders above the rest! Gary & Sue were the perfect hosts; the premises are light, airy and beautifully decorated, and we had the best ensuite facilities I have found in a B&B. Breakfast was... More

This most recent stay from 22/04/15 to 26/04/15 has been the third occasion that we have used High Tor B & B, we started to stay here following a recommendation from our friend Brian. It is in an ideal location for Whitby Goth Weekend (WGW) as it is convenient for accessing the town and about a 5 minute walk from... More

This is our second stay at High Tor, we found them by accident when our original accommodation fell through, and I'm glad we did! The rooms are comfortable, immaculate and very modern. Gary and Sue are very friendly hosts. We will definitely be back!!

Had a lovely weekend break here in April. This is a beautiful guest house with lots of character – we stayed in room 4 which was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners were very friendly and also seemed knowledgeable about the area and the history of the house itself - you can tell that they’ve put a lot of... More
