Reviewed August 13, 2013

On our arrival at the Arches we received a very warm welcome from Dave, who brought coffee and cookies to our room and gave us lots of useful information. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet with tea and coffee making facilities and a spotless en-suite shower room. There was a great choice for breakfast - a variety of cooked breakfasts, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast and home-made preserves - and the quality of the food and service was excellent. The Arches is in a great location with everything only a short walk away - we really enjoyed our 2 night stay and would definitely return.

A very warm welcome from the minute you step in, Dave made us feel at home and allowed us to settle in, but was around should we require anything, child friendly as well. The staff were warm and welcoming to.

Bedrooms are great, very comfortable and spacious, with everything you need. Great value for money.

Breakfast - great choice and as my daughter puts it -YUMMY. Lovely home cooked food, with a wide range to choose from and they do child portions as well for the younger guests.

Location is great, beach and the town is a short walk away, useful if you don't have access to a car.

Will definitely stay at The Arches again. A big thank you to Dave and his team for making our holiday so enjoyable..

Went back to the Arches Guesthouse after 6 years, as always good. Now under new ownership and still great value for money. Stayed in the smaller bedroom as we booked quite late, but this was ample for our weekend break. Food was excellent, everywhere was spotless and we were made very welcome by Dave. Although full at breakfast, had to try the banana bread and it lived up to reputation. Can't wait to call there again, but may have a job with all the good reports!

To be honest it's all already been said in previous reviews. But I will echo the comments made about:
- warm welcome, but then left to get on with the break without daily pestering
- lovely clean, tastefully decorated good value rooms
- fab breakfast, lots of choice, homemade jam, fresh fruit.
- good location
- free street parking
Will definitely use the arches again if we are back in Whitby.

Fabulous place to stay, we have been to the Arches on a few weekends, you could not be made more welcome at any other place. The owners are lovely and cant do enough for you, the rooms are really good value for money, spotlessly clean, and really good quality bed linen and furnishings, a lot of thought has been put into the décor.... and the breakfasts!! .... give them 5 stars, there are specials to choose from, and the selection is great, covers all choices. The location is really good, only 5 mins walk away to the town, parking is on street, which is free and not restricted to residents, and you can sometimes park straight outside the B&B. I was so impressed with this place, It would always be my first choice. Thank you to the owners for making us feel so welcome, we will be back... again!!

Room Tip: they have double rooms, family rooms, and singles all are of the same quality.

This place is just fantastic value for money. We stayed 5 nights and paid just £68 per night for B & B for a double room. The room was very clean and well decorated.
The high light of the stay was the breakfast with was freshly cooked. My husband was in his element having Whitby Kippers every day from the specials board. I loved the homemade jams and fresh fruit salad.
