A friend and I took a weekend trip to Whitby and stayed at High Tor. Sue and Gary were so welcoming and friendly. We are students and it was not only affordable but very comfortable. We felt very safe staying at High Tor and breakfast was lovely. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Whitby young or old.

Stayed again at High Tor on 31st Dec to 2nd Jan with our 2 friends. Sue and Gary had moved tables in the dinning room to give us a 4 seater option and on New Years Day we got a glass of bubbly with the excellent breakfast. We have stayed here now 4 times this year and simply never look...

Chose to stay here for a short break between Christmas and New Year based on previous trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The hotel appears recently refurbished and if it isn't then it's very well kept. We stayed in room 3 which was very comfy, clean, well decorated and had a fantastic shower that's easy to figure out (yes...

The house is grand with a lot of the old features remaining, it is immaculate, homely and welcoming. The beds are comfortable and with a room at the back it was very quiet, shower and facilities...

2nd visit to High Tor and we are not disappointed. Still spotlessly clean, rooms nicely appointed with comfortable beds. Hosts couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Great breakfast to set you up for the day. No lunch required????? Look forward to my next visit.
