I was visiting Whitby, to do some genealogy into my ancestors, who came from Whitby. The location was the main factor but also the fact that there was free parking with spaces for one car per room, and this was the case. Be aware that other nearby hotels offer similar but their car parks tend to comprise 3 x 2... More

The guest house was well located just outside the main town, which makes it easier getting in and out of town during holiday time. Parking on site, is always a must for us, so we are not dragging suitcases too far. The room was beautifully furnished, comfortable and room for our bags and belongings. The room also provided arm chairs... More

We stayed for 4 nights and everything was brilliant. We stayed in the Whitby Room which is beautifully decorated and has fantastic bathroom!! as is the rest of Hillcrest. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. Jayne was the perfect host, friendly and helpful as were the rest of the staff we met.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hillcrest. It is a lovely, spacious B&B, within easy walking distance of Whitby harbour. The Hillcrest has a small private parking area for guests. Our room was spacious and well furnished with a large clean shower room. The breakfasts were good quality with plentiful portions and the 9:00 'til 9:30 time-slot did not... More

Enjoyed our one night stay four poster bed nice clean room. Breakfast spot-on. Only downside was the climb back up the hill from Whitby centre. Other than that very good. Limited parking but ok. Lovely bathroom with shower big enough for two. Tea and coffee making facilities. Television and free Wi-Fi.

A wonderfully presented house with beautiful bedrooms. Completely clean and well kept. Staff very welcoming and nothing was any trouble. Breakfast was to die for; quality food cooked to perfection. Only 5 mins walk from the town centre. In a great position that is close enough to town but far enough away that it is quiet and peaceful. I would... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hillcrest Guest House for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. We arrived at around 5pm and were greeted by a pleasant member of staff who showed us to our room, which was called Whitby. The room is really large, well decorated and has a fabulous bathroom with an excellent and spacious shower.... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Hillcrest (first time in 2008). We stayed during Halloween weekend (or for those in the know, the Whitby Goth Weekend). Nice daily rate, free parking, free strong wifi. The room we had (Grosmont) was nice (a bit tight for all the luggage we had, but we made... More
