Went to Whitby spur of the moment. Couldn't find any accomodation on getting there. Another hotel suggested Sneaton Castle. Phoned a very helpful receptionist who gave me a choice of rooms. Chose a twin ensuite room to be used as a single. £10 single supplement still made the room very affordable. Only a mile outside the centre of Whitby. 20... More

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.

Thank you so much for your recommendation! A hospitality tray can be provided in the hostel style rooms for £5 per visit. We also have the kenco machines in the common rooms which provide a fresh brew for 70p. Hope we will see you again sometime. More

Visited here with a large school party. Excellent value for money, rooms clean and tidy, substantial meals and friendly and accommodating staff. Great location and very picturesque building. Would recommend for large groups travelling together.

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

After a hard day of cycling to RHB and back, the castle glimmered like stars in the dark sky. Its warm presence filled me with anticipation of the cozy, soft, haven that is my room. With a place to store our trusty steeds (our bikes) I dived into the shower to clean myself off. The shower was just what I... More

A wonderful weekend, 54 members of our Church (All Saints, South Cave) visited for a weekend of "Fun & Fellowship". The accommodation was excellent combining very comfortable en suite rooms and non en suite hostel type. All spotlessly clean and well equiped.The food was very good, cafeteria style but delicious. Most importantly the Staff, in particular the manager and receptionists,... More

We stayed in a family room in the St Francis building. Looks like it has just been refurbished. Really big room, with large bathroom. Great quality tea and coffee in the room. White company toiletries in the bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful setting, easy walking distance from Whitby.

Thanks for your great review. For information, St Francis House is our four star guest accommodation within the grounds of the Centre. The main house is our four star hostel accommodation - two quite different standards but both exceptionally clean and tidy. More
