We have just come back from a 3 night stay at The Arches. This is the 2nd time we have stayed there and we are already planning our 3rd.
We had a lovely room on the 1st floor which was kept spotless clean and had excellent quality bedding and towels. The food and hospitality were fantastic as usual.
We are looking forward to our next stay.

Just returned from another excellent stay at The Arches, standard and quality of service remains exceptionally high with a warm and friendly welcome. Good choice of breakfast with all locally sourced produce.

Room Tip: All beautiful rooms with several good ground floor for less mobile.

Enjoyed another great stay in Whitby at the Arches Guest House. Always a warm friendly welcome and clinically clean room! Breakfast as always was hearty and set us up for our days activities. Thank-you, and as always will be returning shortly.

We stayed in early march for 3 nights and were well looked after by dave. Breakfasts are lovely, dave was very welcoming and its just a few minutes walk from the beach and town. He also recommended some great places to eat locally including Humble Pie. Would recommend and stay again

Excellent b and b, very clean, cosy and warm. We stayed in one of the attic rooms, which was very cosy, the bed and linen extremely comfy, tho the beams did introduce themselves to my head once or twice. Breakfast was good, but didn't like ordering the day before, we'd rather wait half an hour in the morning, if it meant we could order what we wanted when we woke up, which was early, cos breakfast is served 8 till 9 only, on a Sunday??!!!!
Didn't see Laura, but Dave was very helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Third visit, where else do you get tea and biscuits on arrival, a personal welcome, great clean rooms, award winnning breakfasts for £70 a night? Thanks for a great stay, and what can I say other than - We'll be back!!

Room Tip: The breakfast is fantastic, but you must save room for the home made bannana bread!!
