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

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.
