“Value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Returned on Saturday from an overnight stay at the Resolution. It was a KGB deal and we paid £49.00 for bed breakfast and a free bottle of wine. The hotel is in the process of being refurbished and unfortunately we didnt get a refurbished room or one with a view. We stayed in room 306 and it is in dire need of attention. Paintwork chipped, stained walls, freezing bathroom and the creakiest furniture I have ever encountered. The wardrobe door , the chair , the drawers and the bed only had to be touched or opened and they creaked ! The saving grace of this hotel were the staff , friendly , polite and helpful nothing was too much trouble and the cooked breakfast in the morning was delicious. Because the weather was freezing we decided to stay and dine in the hotel at night. My hubby had the Resolution Blue burger which he said was delicious, I had the chicken in sweet chilli sauce, the chicken was cooked well but the sauce was watery and tasteless. Having said that it was really cheap and the free bottle of wine we had with it was excellent. For £49 it was a bargain and the hotel is centrally located in the town so you have everything on the doorstep . I have no idea what the rate is normally but I would have been very disappointed if we would have had to have paid more than the £49 .!

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room with a view as apparently the views over the harbour are great.

We had a lovely welcome by helpful staff who told us where we could park for free. The room was sparkling bright ( in fact there was a smell of new paint in the hotel) It's clear that the owners are making a real effort to refurbish it. The breakfast was great with a help yourself buffet . We enjoyed our stay and that's down to the very cheerful pleasant staff. The pub is very convenient for the centre of Whitby . My one minor complaint is that the bathroom fans are very noisy and we could hear both next door rooms' fans too.

Room Tip: room 107 has a rooftop view and wifi connectivity

A very friendly Hotel. Staff happy and willing.Our room 308 a resonable size with good view across the town to the abbey. The bed was comfy,the room was warm and clean,nice shower.There is no on site parking but there are pay carparks nearby. The breakfast served in the bar was excelent. The food served in the bar during the evening was very good bar food.Would stay again.

Stayed here for two nights and its a lovely hotel.well placed for trawling the streets of whitby.clean and tidy bedrooms,only one complaint- you need a tub chair or some other armchair not a dining chair to sit on.i don't like to sit on the bed I prefer a chair.
We were a bit cold as we has a huge arched single glazed stunning window so the wonderful lady who runs this brought us another duvet and helped us sort out the temperature on the Newley installed electric radiator.
Breakfast was fantastic any hotel that serves me fried bread and black pudding is great.everything was perfectly cooked,there were also cereals,toast,fruit and yogurts.
I would come back here anytime.

The resolution has been refurbished since we were there last and it looks great, there was a fantastic band on saturday night. Unfortunately the food was terrible, obviously microwaved as some parts were very hot and other bits were cold. We had a meal in the Granby pub and it was lovely.

We had a fantastic stay at The Resolution the weekend just gone, It was a football trip as we all support Witton Albion and we were playing Whitby Town on the Sat.
We had a full coachload of thirsty people arrive at 9pm on the Friday and we were very quickly thru check in and able to get our bags in our rooms and all be in the bar within minutes of arrival, considering we had booked every room in the Hotel for that weekend that was pretty amazing!

The Hotel is spotless, very clean and tastefully decorated, I was in the Apartment which is an amazing room, hosting 2 large bedrooms and the biggest tv i have ever seen on the wall! The views from the room are fantastic and we had great views of the town and harbour.

The staff are incredible, nothing was too much trouble and even after a few drinks when i had a problem remembering which room i was in (i didnt have the key ) the lady on reception went out of her way to sort it.
All the staff were a delight and even though we only stayed for 2 nights we left the hotel as friends rather than just customers.

The bar is brilliant, it gets lots of locals coming in on the Sat night for the live bands and this creates a great atmosphere, plenty of staff on the bar meaning hardly any queues to get served and a huge choice of drinks!
There is also a bar downstairs (The Vault ) which has a soul DJ on at the weekend though i didnt visit this bar as we were having a great time in the main bar!

Breakfast is out of this world, all laid out buffet style so you can choose as much as you wish, from all the usual cereal`s to fruit & yoghurts to a great hot choice of Bacon, Saus, Eggs (fried & scrambled), hash browns, mushrooms, tomatoes & beans, all very tasty too.

Next time i come to Whitby there is only one choice of Hotel and that is The Resolution!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Apartment room, this can easily sleep a large family in its 2 large bedrooms, we ha...

Check In was not the best due to confusion about what rooms were available and which were not, but once sorted, everything else was very good.
The room was clean and warm with a great view over the harbour. The decoration in the corridors was also maintained to a good standard.
Breakfasts are excellent with a buffet full English available!
The staff and amanagement are very good and very helpful.

Would certainly stay here next time we come back to Whitby!
