A great welcome from Garry after a long journey especially coffee and a large slice of homemade cake. Pleased to be given a parking permit for our stay would help if bays were marked out as spaces are wasted by bad parking. Excellent facilities in a large double room, king size bed loved the DAB radio. Breakfast selection was vast... More

Great location with just a short walk to the main road down into the centre. Fantastic choice of breakfast and even cake and coffee upon arrival. The rooms are spacious and clean and the hosts are naturals in hospitality.

The B&B is convenient to the centre of town, a 5 minute walk bringing you down to the quayside. Although there is a scratch card-type system in operation allowing you to park for free during your stay, vacant spots can be at a premium - a note to the council - mark out proper bays since it will encourage users...

Have just enjoyed a superb 4 night stay at the Leeway. It's the attention to detail that makes all the difference - the lovely toiletries, the delicious breakfasts (with different 'specials' every day), the coffee machine in every room... Karen and Garry are the friendliest and most helpful hosts: nothing is too much trouble! Have already booked a return visit... More

Just returned from a lovely 2 night break at The Leeway. The rooms are to a very high standard with lots of added extras like a Tassimo machine and free WiFi. The breakfast is very good with a wide variety of choice. The hotel is in a quiet street but close enough to all that Whitby has to offer, We... More

We've been going to the leeway for nearly 10 years now. Everytime is fantastic. We get a warm welcome on arrival with homemade cake. The sevice is second to none. Nothing too much trouble. The bedrooms are decorated to a very high standard. The breakfast keeps you going all day long. They are delicious. The only problem is that we... More

It was a nice hotel in a good location. The owner and his wife were very friendly. The breakfast was very good and I would defiantly recommend it. The room was quiet and they had free internet which is always useful. Would defiantly stay again.

another wonderful stay at the Leeway, I have stayed in other hotels and B&B`s and paid more and not had the same quality as you get at the Leeway. I will now only visit Whitby if staying here. The early check in facility is brilliant as we can arrive early, unpack and be out enjoying Whitby by lunchtime.

Karen and Garry were wonderful hosts, really accommodating. I was offered a coffee and some home made cake on arrival. Breakfasts were superb with a special offered every day, so a really nice touch and something a bit different from just the traditional full English. Also enjoyed Karen's home made lemon curd and jam! Little touches like pillow mist, a... More
