My partner and i had a lovely time here in Whitby, and one of the reasons for this is our stay at the Leeway, on arrival we were welcomed and we were made to feel at home instantly, the owners were friendly and very professional, thank you very much! We will be returning in the future.

The third time we've stayed at the Leeway and the standard of the room and experience is as high as ever. Great facilities in the room, I stay away from home with work quite a lot and I wish all rooms were as well-equipped as the Leeway's.

Great Location, lovely hosts, excellent breakfast and great service! The room was very well appointed and there were lots of lovely treats such as the retro sweeties, and luxury soaps and shower gels etc. Free Wifi, a hairdryer and even a heat matt for your hair tongs!

Thank you so much for your fabulous review. So glad you enjoyed our extra touches like the sweeties. We too love our toiletries, Ghilcrest and Soames BeeKind, which are amazing, but which also helps with our Green Tourism, as they are environmentally friendly, and support the Honey Bee. Hope we see you again soon.
