This hotel is a short 5 minute work to the main area of Whitby and come with free parking which is a massive bonus! The breakfast was in the hotel between 8-9am and then at the restaurant around the corner from 9-11am.... More

We loved this b & b which is close to the beach and the Whalebone and the childrens' paddling pool. We stayed in the family room 1. It has recently been modernised and was on the first floor. Breakfast was tasty and we were well looked after and found it to be of great value at high season.

The photos on this particular website (hotel.com) were false advertising. We booked believing we had reserved a room in a large white fronted building with a large semicicle window with stunning views of the bay from the lounge room according to the photos posted. When we arrived it was a small yellow bed and breakfast with views of terraced houses... More

Rooms are small and no bed head. Bed had very noisy under sheet which appeared to be plastic and mattress which needed replacing. Breakfast was reasonable but... More
