I spent a weekend at The Waverley, what a great B&B! Plenty of space in my spotless, comfortable, and fully furnished single room (no.2) with great views of the Abbey. The breakfast was excellent, plenty to choose from at the buffet, and their Full English Breakfast is absolutely delicious! Dave and Tania are perfect hosts, friendly, welcoming, and with great...

What a wonderful guest house. I stayed 1st weekend of Feb which coincided with the newly created steampunk weekend. The breakfast is amazing, the location is within walking distance of Whitby, near all the amenities. The room I stayed in was brilliant, comfy bed. The hosts Tania and David we're wonderful. Will definitely be back.

Just returned from two nights B&B celebrating the New Year. Lovely hotel, gorgeous full cooked breakfast and friendly proprietors. We stayed in room 10 (double room) on the top floor, small room but still plenty of room and well equipped, however the water in the shower just trickled out. Nice quiet location, but close to amenities. Enjoyable stay.

This repeat visit has been brilliant and we've already booked our next stay, which we are looking forward to. We think the Waverley may well have the best views in Whitby - particularly of the abbey. Everything is really clean and comfortable and presented with genuine thought and care - they have the confidence in their own high standards to...

Last minute panic set in when our hotel for our Honeymoon we had booked turned out to be horrible! One quick call to The Waverley and Tania assured us that our Honeymoon was back on track! The room was cosy and well equipped, the bedding was so comfortable the little touches in the room the knitted throw on the bed...

Nothing was too much trouble for this couple. From the very friendly hello to the cheery goodbyes. Breakfast was plentiful, hot and tasty. The rooms decorated lovely and everything was provided from hand cream to air freshener. Most excellent.
