“Pier Inn, Whitby.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Just back from a group weekend at the Pier Inn. Great atmosphere, brilliant management and staff, breakfasts and 'fish -n- chips' to die for. Centre of Whitby with the best views in town.
C.C.C. (clean, cheerful and cheap) Will stay there again.
Thanks for a great two nights.

We had the attic family room which was very clean and comfortable-good size bathroom-instant hot water. Stairs were a bit on the narrow size as the further to the top you went the narrower they seem to be. the television did not work at all, when you put it on the picture was frozen and we could'nt change channels at all, but to be fair - we did'nt really need it . Good size breakfast and quite enjoyable-and all staff were helpful and polite. And we had a harbour, church and abbey view. Would stay again....Many Thanks

We stayed 3/9/12 and I am posting this as we found it was on that night....small pokey room but clean enough. Very squeaky bed, floodlights lit up room as if it was daylight. We asked to have these turned off, but they weren't turned off till pub closed. Noisy music from the bar at night and again at 8am. Breakfast in the unclean bar. Awful breakfast, sausages were off, staff not friendly or helpful at all. If you want a quiet room, don't stay as it is a working port and forklift loading ships at 4am. 7 weeks away from New Zealand and this was our only disappointing room. Manager got us to prepay before seeing room....we learnt from that!! We found the main street of Whitby very dirty, but it was cleaner further back from there. Loved Bothams of Whitby though, a really old fashioned Bakery and worth a visit.

These guys were true publicans. They were eager to show us the rooms and then talked to us during the evening. they had only taken over the pub three days before but the rooms were immaculate. Pub itself is a bit a tired but the beer is good. Breakfast in the morning was good and plentiful.

Only negative was the beds are squeaky and you can hear the music from the bedrooms on the first floor but not the second floor but hey it's a pub.

Good luck to the new owners if they are as helpful to all as they were to us they will be successful.(Thanks Charlie for the hint about the castle)

Room Tip: Book a room on the second floor. The stairs are worth it.

No one told us about the keys, breakfast how to get in without coming into the pub and the room. Shabby rooms, bathroom could do with a good clean. Staff not very helpful. Breakfast luke warm and the toast comes with marg or some kind of spread already on. Mix up over the bill when departing not good customer service at all.

Guest beers great. Atmosphere ok, whoops mind the mess
Toilets are an absolute mess.
Does anybody check them ?
Thought not.
It's about time these establishments took stock of the fact that it's the paying public who keep these places afloat, and just providing a clean toilet should be top of th
