“Great value, location, service and breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

We stayed at the grove after failing to find anywhere else that would take us for a single night stay on a Saturday evening. It was a great find, the rooms were spotless and well furnished and the hosts couldn't have been more welcoming.

The attention to detail was superb, from quality tea and biscuits in the room, good shampoo and shower gels and a fab quality breakfast. The breakfast was great, really good quality bacon and sausages which was beautifully grilled rather than fried.

Lastly the hotel has free private off street parking which in Whitby is a must, the location is about a 4-5 minute walk to the town centre, so its far enough not to be bothered by noise at night.

We decided to stay at the Grove while visiting my wifes' parents and we were not disappointed one little bit.The room was spotless, warm and the on-suite was great.The choice for breakfast was good and the full english was great.Parking which is an issue in Whitby was convenient and welcome.The owners looked after us really well and we will be staying again.

This was definitely not a four stars establishment. On the plus side we could walk into town, the owners were friendly and the bed was comfortable. However the room was small, the furnishings were old and tired with the curtain falling down and the breakfast could only be described as adequate. The most disturbing feature was that there didn't appear to be a fire detector in our room and we were on the top floor!

after looking at other b&bs in the area for an extended weekend, we picked the grove for the safe car parking and good value, which it was, no problems at all. angela and everyone were very friendly and helpful. the room at the top was a good size, clean and comfortable. tea and coffee in the room was plentiful and spotless, as was breakfast in the morning, a lovely old property built high up from the pavement, making it very restful from any traffic noise.
if ever in the whitby area again I would have no hesitation in staying at the grove.

We have stayed at the Grove in Whitby every year since 2001 and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The welcome is always friendly. We always ask for the top room and despite being over six foot tall, my husband has never experienced problems with the ceiling height.

We are due at the hotel next week and are bringing friends this time. We can't wait.

We stayed in this hotel over the weekend and would highly recommend it. The hotel has a four diamond rating and it is well deserved. The parking was great, as was the very warm welcome. Angela and her family / staff were very quick to offer us advice and help when needed and they were always very friendly. Breakfast was lovely and very filling. The building has a lot of character which is interesting and there is lots of books on offer and information on Whitby and its history. We really enjoyed our stay here and will defiantly be going back!
