We'd planned to stay in Whitby but not having booked anything and it being a bank holiday we were disappointed. We'd stopped off the the Beansheaf en route just for a coffee and thought it seemed nice so we gave them a call. We got the last room available - lucky us.
It's a lovely hotel with wonderful staff - all very friendly and (a rarity these days) people who genuinely seemed to enjoy their jobs and take a pride in providing good service.
The room was nicely decorated, the origami towels were in the shape of a dog - complete with black nose and eyes.... and the complimentary hospitality tray had a lovely selection of herbal and fruit teas, as well as J20 (they think water is boring) and nice biscuits! What more could you ask.
We had intended to go into Pickering for dinner but settled in with a good bottle of wine and a couple of Bombay Sapphire G&T's and the meal certainly didn't disappoint. My only negative comment (and it is being picky... ) is that the serving staff clearing tables close by were a little over enthusiastic with the Pledge and it did smell very strongly of polish whilst we were still eating.
I'd certainly recommend the Beansheaf to friends - and would certainly stay there again.
