Thank you for your review. Apologies about the light bulb! The Centre is one mile out of town. The walk into town is down hill. We often suggest people walk in and taxi or bus back.

My friend and I booked in for 2 nights. We got EXACTLY what was described. Our room was IMMACULATE, the staff so helpful, the breakfast with so much choice, and the grounds a sight to behold and to walk in. It was near enough to the town to walk to . The sight that greeted us when we drove up was breathe taking. The party of youngsters were in a totally different area for sleeping, activities and eating.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments. You had a room in St Francis House, our guest accommodation. The young people were in the main house, the hostel accommodation.

Stayed for a weeked with friends.
Positives:
Beautiful surroundings, the rooms were VERY clean and well presented. Receptionist Janet was very, very courteous and went out of her way to help when required.
No tv or phone but there was a communal tv room if needed.
Negatives:
ONLY SINGLE beds at this hotel.
website a little misleading it states the castle is a short walk from Whitby centre - It is in fact a £5.00 taxi fare!!!!!

Many thanks for your kind feedback. We've so far avoided tvs in rooms so that our guests can enjoy the peaceful location. However, we have now got a tv/dvd which we can put in a room on request. There are no double beds in St Francis House, our ensuite accommodation. However, we do have some double rooms in the main house (the hostel). The walk into town takes around 20 minutes and is 1 mile. We are also on a bus route.

Just stayed for 2 nights on bank holiday weekend. Friendly staff, very clean. We booked late so only had a Basic room ie. sink in room. There are an ample number of loos, showers and bathrooms along the corridors. It used to be a girls school dormatory I think. Rooms were simple, beds were comfy and at £29.00 incl Breakfast is very good value. It is not in the castle but annexed. There is a bar and shop in the main castle building and a newly built dinning hall called the Garden Room which is lovely and airy. Walkers can have their flasks filled for £1.00 on request. Large groups can be accomodated. There is ample parking and its quiet at night. Currently they do a very nice 2 course Sunday dinner for £10.95 a head( booking essential) at 12.00- 2.00.
Single rooms are charged at the same £29.00 a night refreshingly. Tea trays provided in basic rooms on request for a small charge. I would definately stay again.

Looking for a place to stay in Whitby, West Yorkshire, we stumbled across the Sneaton Castle Hotel website. From the photos and descriptions it looked fantastic although a little pricey, but we decided to splash out a little and stay in a castle. We were however very disappointed to discover when we arrived, that you don't stay in the castle at all, but behind the castle (not visible in the photos on their website), in a one storey, brick building (currently next to a buisling under construction). The rooms themselves resemble rooms from a cheap guest house. They are clean and tidy with a small ensuite bathroom, but they fealt cheap and modern, and certainly did not resemble what you might expect if you were actually staying in a castle!

Unfortunately, this couple didn't stay with us and so didn't see all the Centre. The new Garden Room is now complete and therefore no more construction going on. St Francis House, the ensuite accommodation is indeed an annexe to the main house.
