We had a weekend away with brother and sister in law . The hotel is very well situated . It could do with a bit of general improvement but still a descent hotel. The food was very good especially the buffet breakfast.

About
Description
Overlooking Whitby, with breathtaking views of Whitby Abbey and the sea, the Royal is steeped in intriguing history and heritage. Many of the hotel bedrooms are front facing and have superb views thanks to the ...More hotel’s cliff top position. This is an extremely popular hotel that has many returning customers thanks to its warm and friendly welcome and great hospitality. The entertainments suite offers a great variety of entertainment and guests can also enjoy the marvellous views from the comfortable restaurant and bar. The Royal Hotel is in an ideal location, just a few minutes from the famous harbour and shops. Whitby is a traditional maritime town and with its old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beach, it is a great place for a holiday or short break. Less

Yes there is a lift. It can break down though which obviously is no fault of the staff who work there. And its small but at the end of the day it gets the job done!
