Visited this hotel on a cold January afternoon. We had a lovely meal and drinks and the dog was allowed into the bar!!! We sat overlooking the beach, a wonderful place to eat. I am sure we will be back next time we are in the area.

Based at the bottom of the bay, probably the best place on the planet, the Bay Hotel offers great food and drink with some of the best views you could imagine.

Fabulous sea food, locally caught. The bar gets a bit crowded, but try to have your dinner on the variances overlooking the beach...Fab situation and absolutely a must to take in the air...,while doing a little imbibing of a few lagers!

The food was not good. The vegetarian options in particular were poor. The fish and chips OK but nothing special. A disappointment to say on coast. But the pub itself and views are fantastic. Just eat some where else.

We always visit The Bay View when we got o Robin Hood's Bay. We've visited all different times of year, from summer to New Year's Eve and always find it to be a friendly atmosphere, lively, cosy and nice. It's a proper traditional pub. I'm not an ale drinker but there always seems to be a few nice selections and... More

Went back to the bay for my husband's birthday weekend. Room 1 is definitely the best. En suite, and when you look out of the front window when the tides in it feels like you're on a ship!!! Lovely and warm. Spotlesly clean. Full English breakfast to die for. Close to Whitby and Scarborough with beautiful cliff walks. This village... More
