“Exceptional service”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

My daughter and I stayed here last night in room 6 and 7. The accommodation was lovely, very clean and well appointed. The B& B is close to town and the beach so has the best of both worlds. Dave and Tania went out of their way to be helpful as I had mixed up the booking, booking a double instead of a twin room! They offerred a single room adjacent to the double, which meant that my daughter and I did not have to squeeze into a double. I could see the relief on my daughter's face when they made the suggestion!!
The shower was great in room 6 and the wi- fi was also a real bonus with a teenage daughter!!
The breakfast was excellent and my daughter said the scrambled eggs were the best ever tasted!!
We will definately be back!!
Thanks

Sarah

We recently had the pleasure of a two night stay at The Waverley. We found both Tania and David to be very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in room 5 which looks straight across to the Abbey. The room is large and comfortable with a super kingsize bed and flat screen tv, and big windows that let in the sunshine. Breakfast, served between 8.30 and 9am was very tasty, nicely presented and plentiful. We found on street parking just across the road from the hotel which was convenient. The hotel is easy walking distance into the centre of town, maybe 5 minutes down the hill. We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather all weekend and thoroughly enjoyed all that Whitby has to offer. The town was very busy, and all staff in the bars and restaurants were very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Whitby.

What a wonderful 2 nights we had staying in Whitby and that was mainly due to our superb room at the Waverly. The room was spacious, the bed enormous and comfortable. It was spotlessly clean, had tea making facilities. The breakfast that we had in the morning was fantastic. Everything you could want was there with plenty of top ups if wanted. Tania and David were very welcoming and gave us lots of information on things to see and visit. We thought we would travel around and see other places but we just left our car and never used it till leaving on Saturday. A certain 'must return again' to both the Waverley and Whitby. Thank you Tania and David for making our stay such an enjoyable experience and hope to see you again in the future.

Very pleased to have discovered The Waverley and to meet Tania and David. While looking for a single night stay while on a Motorcycle tour of North Yorkshire in June 2013, the two of us were well looked after. A fantastic traditional British B&B of top quality. It was clearly popular, and many of the residents we met at breakfast had been returning year after year. The rooms were warm, very clean and well kitted out. Our bikes were well looked after too, parking available in a secure location. We discovered Tania is a keen biker, and took great interest in my mates Suzuki Bandit - I do hope she gets to ride again one day. David was very helpful in advising us of the most scenic roads to ride, many thanks. I will be recommended the Waverley to the BMW Touring Motorcycle Club, Ideal for couples too. Thanks again.

Upon arrival at The Waverley we received a very warm welcome from the owners Tania and David.Our room at the top of the house was spotlessly clean and very well laid out and also gave us a sea view.The room had everything you could need including some very luxuriant soaps. Upon coming down for breakfast the following morning we found the dining room to also be very well laid out. All types of cereal were available along with copious supplies of fruit juice , yogurts and grapefruit. We ordered the full English breakfast which turned out to be superb with as much tea or coffee as you wished. Tania was extremely helpful giving us information about Whitby such as the best places to eat, places offering live music and also various beauty spots worth a visit.This was our 1st visit to Whitby and upon any further visits we will certainly return to The Waverley.We would like to offer a great big thanks to Tania and David for making our stay so very enjoyable. To anybody thinking about visiting Whitby we would very highly recommend The Waverley.

We had a one night stay here to break up a journey from Scotland & wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was at the top of the house & not very big but every detail had been thought out. Crisp white bedding & a spotlessly clean en suite made our hearts glad. The owners made us feel very welcome & the breakfast was excellent; nothing was too much trouble & they were helpful with information on the area, especially which fish & chip eatery to choose! Would recommend whole heartedly.

We normally visit our favourite place, Whitby as a day out, travelling there and back in the day. However, we had a rush of blood and booked a single night in the Waverley. We are glad we did. The Guest house we found very charming and clean. Our room was at the top and gave us a sea view. The room was spacious and tidy and spotlessly clean. The shower room was on the small side, but I am on the large side so that cant be helped. There was plenty of tea and coffee in the room and some luxuriant soaps and body washes. The bed was very comfortable and afforded us a good nights sleep. In the morning we wandered down to breakfast in the dining room. The dining room was again well laid out with ample room between tables. There were cereals and fruit drinks on the table for you to help yourself. The breakfast menu was very enticing with local kippers headlining.The full English was superb. There was plenty of tea and coffee for those who wished top ups The hosts were very pleasant and welcoming. It is obvious that they take running a high standard guest house very seriously. They both must work very hard to keep the place looking so homely. We would surely recommend the Waverley to anyone staying in Whitby and we will be looking to make a return visit very soon.
