They only have around 5 rooms so you need to book early, so a year ahead should be adequate time to allocate a room! When we had completed our C2C walk we wanted a comfortable spacious rooms which had been allocated to friends of our who had booked 2 months previous, so they got the 2 large spacious rooms and...

What can I say? I've reviewed this place before and I was thrilled to return and find it just as brilliant as last time. Mark the chef creates culinary marvels in the kitchen and they arrive very swiftly into the restaurant with a strong theme to match the name. Beautiful, cosy, candlelit setting with excellent friendly service and attention to... More

We visited here for an evening meal after completing the C2C walk. The seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. We also had a pretty decent bottle of prosecco. The service was good, and the atmosphere cosy- perfect for a romantic meal. Would definitely return if in the area.

We had stayed here before 4 years ago prior to the current management. We loved both Robin Hoods Bay and the hotel so were looking forward to staying again. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the studio apartment which although the red paint made it a bit dark for my taste was very clean, comfortable and cosy. The bathroom... More

We had stayed here once before, but the Boathouse Guest Rooms were under new management upon our return - and the owner was really lovely! We chatted to her every morning over breakfast, and in the evenings when we booked into the bistro; she was a genuinely nice lady! Our studio style room was perfect for our stay - clean,... More

Me and my partner booked this room for our 1 year anniversary. We had enjoyed a visit to Robin Hoods bay earlier in the year and had thought it would make a perfect location to mark the occasion. Smugglers and boathouse rooms seemed a really reputable place and very quaint and romantic. We booked a Friday night and a Saturday... More

Great 2 night stay, choose the self catering apartment, no getting up first thing in the morning and a great bolt hole if the weather comes in. Picture postcard property, spitting distance from two pubs and the sound of the sea - what more could you want? Attached is a very romantic looking restaurant, sadly we didn't have the time... More

My wife and I stayed here with two other couples at the end of our Coast To Coast walk. Lisa, our hostess, was very friendly and very helpful. The location is at the bottom of the steep walk down from the upper part of town. It’s perfect for people wetting their feet in the North Sea after completing the Coast... More

This excellent Bistro is situated at the very bottom of the hill on the left as you walk down into the heart of Robin Hoods Bay. Tucked away in the heart of the Smugglers Den, Smugglers Bistro serves a romantic setting for a wonderful meal sourced from all local produce. We had the surf and Turf and the prawns and... More

Booked a one night stay with a reservation at the bistro. Rooms are really homely, dinner was amazing and the cooked breakfast was the best I've had at a B and B. What sets this place apart though is the service. Lisa was a fab host, attentive at all times and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be... More
