This was my third visit to The Arches, and again it was lovely, our room (Rm 1) has been refurbished since our last visit last september (we have also rebooked for next september), and is still, clean and comfy. little thing like the ipod dock alarm clock, fresh homemade biscuits in the room and good quality toiletries, makes this a special and on a different level to other B&Bs.
I love Laura's cooking and the breakfasts are fab first morning I had the full english with scrambled eggs, devine! the second morning I had the special which was locally smoked kipper, poached eggs and brown bread these were equally delicious and the poached eggs were perfect! on the third morning I just had bacon and eggs with toast, and some toast with homemade jam and marmalade (another little thing that shows Dave and Laura are trying to be different and maintain a standard) I also took one of Laura's homemade wholegrain and blueberry muffins, which I had the following morning still fresh and delicious.
Dave and Laura are fantastic hosts and make you feel welcome a home from home experience, they will do anything to try and help and make your stay as comfortable as possible. looking forward to my stay again next September, and if I get to Whitby before then, I won't be staying anywhere else!
