Booked this Hotel on the internet after reading other peoples reviews that had stayed there several times before, all good reviews. From the time we arrived until the time we checked out we were treated as friends more than guests, this makes for a great stay nothing was to much trouble, we met people who had been there dozens of times before and had nothing for praise for the owners and staff alike. The food is to die for the breakfasts are not only large but quality, and so are the evening meals. The hotel is right on the promenade overlooking the sea and so quiet. We had a back room looking over the cricket grounds it was roomy and very clean. There is daily servicing of all the rooms and coffee and tea making facilities as well as biscuits. It takes about 10 minutes to walk into Whitby town centre so its very handy if you like going out for a meal or drink as apposed to having one at the Hotel you don't have to worry about driving. The outlook from the hotel when your in the dining room or the lounge is stunning can't wait to go back again, absolutely loved it. Note they have car parking on site and in the street free which is a bonus as most of the hotels in the town and surrounding area have limited parking or none and on street or pay to park is not cheap, they also cater for Motorcyclists as I asked them if they minded if I came on my motorcycle anytime. Its just a great friendly spotlessly clean place to stay.
