we stayed here the night before our daughters wedding. Sue and Gary are fantastic hosts, warm and friendly.The room was spotless and breakfast was first class.Nothing was too much trouble and both Sue and Gary made us feel at home. Ten out of ten, will be most definitely going back to stay again. Cannot recommend highly enough

Stayed here for 2 nights will definitely return. The friendliness of Sue and Gary was just great, making us feel welcome and at home. The accommodation was fabulous, clean and modern with little touches like hand and body washes and tea and coffee making facilities (good quality) not the normal inferior brands you can get. The quality of the breakfast... More

I loved staying at High Tor for my weekend away in Whitby. It is in such a great central location and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, and made us feel at ease. I like that there was a choice of breakfast as I am a vegetarian, and that there was no pressure to pay the remaining fees up... More
