We had a two night stay at the Whitehaven and had a lovely time. The owners were incredibly helpful. The room was immaculate and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely. I can highly recommend the full cooked breakfast. Sets you up for the day. The location of the guesthouse is good. It is only a short ten minute walk to the harbour. Parking is a bit of a problem when Whitby is busy (which it was on out stay) but the large leisure centre car park is right next door to the Whitehaven and is ok price wise. I’d recommend using the Ring-Go app if you are able. One final note. The open top tour bus stops just over the road from the Whitehaven and so is ideal if you find the hilly walk to the harbour a problem.

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay, a friendly welcome,spotlessly clean with good quality furnishings and decor, plenty of menu choice and breakfast was top notch. Nice to have adequate refreshments in the room, and rooms nice and spacious. A nice family run guesthouse , quiet and relaxing, Will definitely be back. 👌⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Well here we go again... Think this is my 3rd review of the "Whitehaven Guest House" and I'm beginning to sound like a broken record. But same as before a fabulous weeks stay was had. The guest house is immaculately clean and tidy throughout. Tea and coffee facilities in all rooms. After a great nights sleep comes a cracking breakfast. Thankyou again to Lane and Simon for looking after us again. And thankyou for the delicious breakfast 🥓🍳🥣☕🍴🍽️ keep up the great work
