Stayed three nights at High Tor Guesthouse. A real home from home experience. It was spotless and well maintained. Sue and Gary were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was well cooked and delicious and cleared away very quickly. My only problem was that we booked online via Laterooms and were automatically given Room 5 in the Attic. 52 steps... More

As this was our first trip to Whitby we searched reviews and opted for for High Tor and from the minute we arrived it was obvious that it was the perfect choice. Sue and Gary were very welcoming and our room (3) was immaculate and very comfortable with a lovely bathroom and power shower all tastefully decorated to top standards.... More

There is only one word needed to describe this guest house. Perfect. It is spotlessly clean, well maintained. The breakfast is superb. The owners Sue and Gary make you feel very welcome. We will definitely be going back. Thank you Sue and Gary for making our trip so enjoyable. Ron, Lesley Jim and Margaret

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
