We stayed here for two nights in one of the top floor attic bedrooms. It was well equipped, comfortable and airy. The owner and staff were friendly, and the excellent breakfasts were freshly cooked. The location is perfect - a very short walk to Whitby harbour/town and to the West Cliff.

Just returned from a lovely stay in Whitby and the Arches guest house was perfect for us. Dave and the girls had gone out of their way to help us before we had even checked in, which made us feel even more welcome before we had even arrived. Once there we were not disappointed, as we had everything we needed... More

Just arrived back from Whitby, after staying at the Arches guest house. This hotel/BB is a super place to use as a base to explore Whitby. It is close enough to the bustling harbour and town yet far enough away to miss the late night revellers. The hotel is well designed with spacious, well-equipped rooms with en suite bathroom, TV,...

Another excellent visit to the Arches. Lovely room (6) that has been refurbished really nicely. Thanks to Dave for his usual friendly and helpful welcome & superb breakfast. A great team - Julie & Sarah (& emergency recruit Jo!) make this a really fabulous place to stay . We look forward to another visit soon.
