Stayed here for just one night whilst working away, amazing little find, extremely welcoming upon arrival. The room itself had recently been renovated and was extremely comfortable and clean. We went into the town for a few drinks and returned around 8pm for food, ordered a 10 oz ribeye steak, such a delicious meal. All in all I would recommend... More

I stayed at the Captain Cook last weekend with my partner and friends while on a walking weekend. I have read the mixed reviews and you have to take everything into context. Yes the hotel is currently undergoing a major refurbishment but the new owners don't try to hide this. I'm guessing that they don't have the funds to close... More

Great, economical place to stay in Staithes. The new owners are working their way through this Inn, improving everything as they go. I have stayed twice, once in an unrefurbished room and then a second time in a refurbished room, which was a massive step forward. It's a big task turning around a huge building like this and you can... More

Our room was pristine with an en suite. Only 5 minutes from Staithes beach. They also have a specially brewed beer called "Navigator" which is superb. Large english breakfast with all the trimmings well. Undergoing a refurbishment as it says on their website however that did not spoil our visit in anyway. Recommended.

Found this wonderful Inn a few minutes walk from my Tent! The food is brilliant,the welcome is second to none and the Inn is being updated as we speak. Can`t praise the owners Clare and Heath too highly-they made us feel truly welcome and afforded us excellent service from the bar and the menu! The kitchen staff prepared wonderful food... More

Quite simply the worst B&B/hotel I've been to. From the moment we arrived, to see scaffolding lining the outside of the building and it's proximity to some derelict outbuildings, it was clear that this wasn't going to be good. The car park looked like an ex-gipsy encampment, complete with smouldering rubble. The receptionist immediately informed us it was her first... More

Hi Steve, thank you for your frank review, feedback is very important to us. Thanks for the advice to close the pub down, but we have only just purchased it! We are mid-way through an extensive refurbishment project (which is made reference to on our website) hence the scaffolding wrap and rubble heap (which has already been removed). I can... More

Visited here for a meal only, and was quite disappointed. The food was pretty average, I had the steak and ale pie which was very dry and the new potatoes were all shrivelled up the gravy was also to thin for me. My wife had the lasagne which was ok but the salad was not very good. The service was... More

Hello, thanks for taking the time to submit a review. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal with us. I'm guessing from your comments (sorry if I am wrong) you were expecting something more along the lines of a restaurant? We do not claim to be anything other than a pub with a dining room at the moment,... More

Booked to stay here as it was as close to Whitby as we could get a twin room for one weekend night and we had the choice if this, far more expense or the car. If we were going to do anything other than sleep here we would not have stayed past check in. On its favour it has good... More

I'm sorry you didnt enjoy your stay with us. We have recently purchased the property and it is currently undergoing a significant refurbishment, as illustrated by your photographs. Admittedly the corridor is not looking at it's best yet as there is still some internal works to complete prior to the new carpet being laid. We try to ensure all customers... More
