“lovely place whitby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2008

first time me and my husband ever been to whitby and it was lovely. we went with friends for r 2oth wedding anniversary we stayed at the duke of york we had two rooms side by side and the doors opened straight out to the harbour the view was fantastic. room very clean and bed comfy fruit and bisciuts provided and tea coffee .no meals included but meals in the pub itself was lovely.lots of old worldy type pubs didnt seem alot for children to do has only small amount of amusements would say it was more a adult location.must do the 199 steps up to the abbey the views are amazing all in all we had a fantastic time and we will definately be coming back to whitby next year.

Good value for money in an excellent location, it think its on the nicer side of the river to stay, more quaint. I think most of the rooms have sea/harbour views which were fantastic. Our room was fairly small but adequate, very comfortable bed, good drink making facilities and plenty of wardrobe/drawer space. The bathroom was a decent size with a good shower. My only compliant was that there was a random hair in the shower cubicle, which I know is very minor but it really put me off and the curtains were a bit shamby. Everything else was clean, fairly modern and nice though and I would stay there again.

The pub itself is lovely, very nice friendly atmosphere and the food is of a good standard, I can imagine it gets packed in the summer and its a shame it doesn't really have an outdoor area.

You can't drive up to the hotel, so we parked just down the road for £6 per 24 hours, its only a 5 minute walk. They don't serve breakfast but there are plenty of reasonably priced cafe's very close by. Lots of great shops to browse in and nice pubs and restaurants aplenty.

Whitby is lovely and great for a relaxing weekend, make sure you eat fish and chips on the seafront and buy some Whitby Jet!

Spent a Friday and Saturday night at the Duke of York, arrived in Whitby at 1900hrs by car and elected to park the car in the large public car park adjacent to the train station but at £9 for 24hrs drove to the West cliff area and parked free in the street. Checked in at the Duke of York, room 5, great views over the harbour below, not all rooms have a sea view. Did not eat here as there was no available tables ( no priority given to residents )
but the food looked good. The bar area has a very relaxed atmosphere. The pubs location at the foot of the steps to the Abbey. Plenty of eating places in Whitby, the well known Magpie cafe, a eating experience despite the usual queuing to get in, overall one of the better places to stay in Whitby.

The Rooms are wonderful, overlooking Whitby Harbour. Our room was situatied on the first floor, so we could have a drink outside on the harbour. It was lovely.

The room was clean. The pub is absolutely fantastic.
It's very traditional, serving real ales and a fine selection on whiskeys. The pub is very busy, so you may need to wait for food.
The food is quite nice. Very reasonable for the price.

There was no noise in the rooms considering it is beside a busy pub. There is no parking at the pub itself, but there is a large carpark about a ten minute walk from the pub.

The pub is situated at the top of a cobbled street, which is a little steep, so could not be very good for disabled or elderly people.
