This centre is adequate, food is tasty but basic. In a conference situation, rooms are small and not not en-suite and there are limited showers to number of rooms. Staff are very helpful and pleasant.

Thank you for your review. Our food is prepared by cooks who have to cater for all tastes. As we serve a set menu at dinner, it needs to be popular dishes such as steak pie, lasagne etc that the majority will eat. We do prepare dishes for vegetarians, vegans etc and those will special diets. We have ensuite rooms... More

Located on the outskirts of Whitby. Just a few minutes from Whitby "Park and Ride" which costs £2-50 return. 20 mins walk from the town centre. There is plentiful free car parking at the castle.

Sneaton Castle Centre is easy to find off the 171 on the road into Whitby and is close to the sea. The grounds are so spacious and perfect for walking and talking or just enjoying the fresh sea air and well kept gardens. The single room I stayed in, M12, was compact, clean with high quality shower room, TV and... More

Delightful setting and grounds, close to the sea but away from the noise and hustle of the town. Peaceful, calm atmosphere, informal and friendly. Comfortable rooms, quite simple but with everything required for comfort and convenience. Spotlessly clean everywhere and excellent food served in the lovely Garden Room. Great value for money.

Great place to stay Close to Whitby centre Amazing building, rooms excellent and really geared up for school groups. Highly recommend One small thing would have been for teachers to have a kettle in their rooms (much needed). The dining hall is amazing and excellent selection for breakfast. Packs ups prepared were good and well balanced.

My usual B & B location was unable to accommodate me for one of five nights and thus I had to find an alternative. I was absolutely amazed at the prices some establishments were charging and was on the verge of resigning myself to the purchase of a tent and a night on the beach when I came across Sneaton...

Very pleased you enjoyed a relaxing time at the Centre. The ensuite single rooms are indeed very good value (a single hostel style room would have been even cheaper - £34.55 inc breakfast!) More
