Husband took me here for my 40th birthday. I'd never been to Whitby before and all he would tell me about the hotel was "You'll see". I love this place. I want to stay in all the rooms!! First and foremost, you have to really embrace the experience. It is without doubt the quirkiest, most original hotel I have ever... More

La Rosa is not for everybody. You need to love the obscure, the freaky and the macabre. Located in an old Victorian house, the rooms are all themed. We stayed in Stoker room which is an Hommage to Bram Stoker, author of Dracula. Stoker offers black bed linen, a stuffed bat, black curtains and black lampshade, plus a nice small... More

After 8 years of wanting to visit La Rosa, I finally went! My boyfriend booked the Town Mouse Country Mouse package for my birthday (a night in the campsite and a night at the Hotel, it was amazing. Mandy and Helen were so accommodating and welcoming. Can't wait to go back!

My partner has a long standing love affair with Whitby. He visited numerous times as a child and really connects with the place. So for his 29th birthday I decided to book a surprise break at La Rosa Hotel. We found it quirky and boho and just our cuppa tea. We were warmly welcomed and offered a ticket for the... More

we have often passed this tearoom and thought it looked rundown. How far from the truth! The tearoom is quirky and it was lovely to have a pretty teapot, rather than those horrible stainless steel ones that leak all over. The cake was delicious and the tea was the best i'd tasted in Whitby. The service was excellent and the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Rosa Hotel and Campsite aim to offer our guests something a little bit out of the ordinary. Whitbys history is full of fairytales and folklore, and at La Rosa we to embrace it's magical nature. With views over to the Abbey you can almost picture Lewis Carol sitting at the window and brainstorming on one of his many trips to the building all those years ago.... The hotel offers 8 double rooms and a three bedroomed apartment. All themed differently. You can stay in the Wild West or Arabia. Depending on your sensibilities! The campsite offers 10 caravans and a barn decorated splendiferously. Not quite glamping more like camping. There is no electricity in the caravans, leaving candle light and fires to light your way at night. ... more   less
