Large spacious family room with modern ensuite. Great location for the beach & centre, with food options nearby. Lovely breakfast with plenty of choice and daily special on offer. Very friendly, even posted our daughter's teddy bear back to us. We will return!

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
