The George Hotel
Ranked #18 of 19 Hotels in Whitby
Reviewed September 2, 2010

I'm thankful that I didn't read all the negative reviews before I booked The George. There aren't that many places in Whitby that do a family room for 4, especially not for £95.

The room is right at the top of the hotel, so maybe that's why we didn't hear any noise at all, or maybe its always quiet on a Tuesday. Whatever the reason we honestly didn't hear a thing.

The family room was very nice, simply but tastefully decorated and clean with a nice en-suite shower room.

We paid the extra £5 each to have the cooked breakfast and it was adequate for the money, two rashers of rather nice bacon, one cheap sausage, beans, tomato and one fried egg. We could of course help ourselves to the 'complimentary' breakfast as well, which is a selection of cereals, toast, coffee, tea and juice.

Overall a very pleasant stay and the ideal location for a family stay in Whitby.

Horrible dirty building, horrible rude staff. I was in tears after "check-in" (long wait, no parking, no help) as I'd looked forward to a rare trip away minus children for a long time.

stayed overnight recently following a social function in town, single room on B&B
Great location just opposite the railway and bus station
Rooms have obviously been refurbished and offer a pleasant surprise whe you walk in
beware though no car park, so you have to use the station one. Free between 6.00 pm and 6.00 am - so you have to get up to put some money in !
Good bar with good selection of beers etc, and will stay open quite late.
Perfectly fine for an overnight or a short stay especially at the price.

was a bit worried about this hotel after reading some of the reviews , As soon as we entered the hotel (7.30pm) we were greeted by the manager who checked us in and showed us to our room stayed in room 22 on the top floor bit of a task with all the stairs but hey at a budget price with breakfast included well worth it,flat screen t v and tea and coffee making faciltys, room cleaned daily and clean bathrooms with 2 showers cant fault it at all apart from the lack of a chair in the bathroom to put your clothes on while you shower

We stayed at the george the 1st and 2nd May in room 10. having read the previous reviews we were a bit aprehensive and weren't expecting much. How wrong were we! The rooms were imaculate and nicely set out, the bed was extremely comfortable and me and my husband had a great nights sleep. We were also checked in at the reception desk and not in the pool room like the previous review states? The staff were really friendly and helpful especially the woman at the reception desk who went out of her way to advise us about parking and a nice place to eat out. The only thing we were a little disappointed about was the fact they didnt serve evening meals, but we did enjoy a smashing roast dinner at their carvery on the sunday afternoon just before we left. All in all we had a great time and have already booked again for the whole family to come to the Whitby Regatta in August.
