Perfect location and lovely B&B. Our room was spacious with a huge comfy bed. We especially liked all the little extras in the room like a coffee machine, robes and even bottles of water by our bed.

Again a fabulous stay with Karen and Garry, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Whitby! Everything you coud need or want is provided, nothing is too much trouble. Karen's breakfast is full of local produce and served with a smile from Garry. See you in the new year!

We stayed only for one night but it was at the best B&B yet in Whitby - and we have been visiting for 30 years! Lovely hosts, wonderful breakfast choice and a delightful modern room with king size bed. We shall be back.

We have stayed at The Leeway for 3 nights and can honestly say this hotel is the very best on all fronts. Gary and Karen are excellent hosts and the bedrooms are second to none and the breakfasts amazing. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Whitby

We visit Whitby regular and have stayed in a number of B&B's. From the moment we arrived, Karen & Garry couldn't have done any more for us, so very welcoming and informative about changes in Whitby since we last visited. We stayed in St Mary's room (5), it was on the top floor, this was fine for us, but was...

Great stay at the Leeway once again. We were offered tea and cake as we entered and were given all the info we needed for a pleasant stay. Room was nice with some nice touches like the pillow mist and bottles of water. I would always choose the Leeway when staying in Whitby and I would recommend it to anyone...
