My partner and I stayed here just after New Year and thought it was an excellent hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and gave us lots of tips on restaurants and bars to go to which proved very useful.
We stayed in the Louis XV Style Room and it was excellent. Loads of space, very tastefully decorated, and great views of the returning trawlers coming back with their hauls. The only thing I found slightly intimidating was that the bathroom, - as stated on the website - is open plan. Which in this case, literally means through a doorway into the bathroom and more importantly for me, the toilet. There is a partition you can pull across, but whilst I have no issue in bathing with my partner (quite romantic of course) I don't really want him to have to listen to me going to the loo! Consequently, I probably wouldn't recommend this room to new young couples who aren't yet familiar with their new partners habits!
Still, this did not put me off what was a fabulous hotel. Breakfast was just brilliant, kedgeree is just scrumptious. It was so nice to have several choices of breakfast that wasn't just made up of bacon, sausage and egg.
We ate downstairs for dinner as well, sat near the bar and it was quite buzzing, really good atmosphere. I also recommend the Moon and Sixpence, their sister place a few doors down.
I was suprised by Whitby in general, as I expected a cheap seaside resort, but it was really picturesque place, lovely scenery topped off by a magical stay in this most lovely hotel. Highly recommended.
