“A nice B&B”
Reviewed January 2, 2008

Stayed for a 2 night break

A nice little B&B in Whitby. Clean rooms that could do with some updating. Small carpark at the front of the property.

The B&B is situated about a 10 min walk from the seafront but when you are walking back it is up a long hill.

On the whole the room was clean and the breakfast was good.

The hosts were both helpful and very chatty - If you like that.

I would recommend a visit to Robin Hood Bay and a trip to Staithes - Both very nice!!!!!

Only stayed in Whitby for a night, but had a great stay. Clean rooms, private parking and the best breakfast you could wish for. Excellent hosts, friendly and knowlegdable about the local area. Highly recommended.

We have visited Whitby on many occasions but only for a day trip. This time we stayed for a couple of nights to celebrate my birthday and we decided to stay at Holmleigh B&B. Well what more can I say.........Kev & Carol are smashing hosts they made you feel welcome from start to finish. The breakfast Carol cooks is just amazing...the best start to anyone's day. Kevin is a true gent and if you need any info on Whitby he's the man to ask. The B&B is strictly NON SMOKING!!! and for me this is a great plus. Parking is a nightmare in Whitby as anybody who as ever visited before will know, but the B&B's location is ideal with plenty of parking and only 5 minutes walk into Whitby. I would also like to recommend a couple of places to eat when in Whitby....If you don't mind paying £10 for Fish 'N' Chips and waiting for 45 mins then visit the Magpie cafe. I would recomend any of the chippies along the harbour as the fish is always fresh that day so you can't go wrong. We actually ate at the Quayside resturant and wasn't dissapointed the portions are great and the batter is the best I've tasted. Also I would recomend an Indian called the passage to India this is located accross the road from the train station...you will not be dissapointed truely a great Indian. The best pub we found was the Station great Real Ales.......a choice of about 7 or 8 well worth trying them all. Thanks again to Kev & Carol what hosts!! will be back again keep up the good work!

Stayed for a 2 night break. The first thing that you notice is how friendly Kev and Carol are, you just warm to them straight away, and you know you've struck gold.

The highlights for me: Kev and Carol. The whole place is immaculately presented and maintained. The breakfast is superb. Good sized en-suite rooms. Private car parking (a bonus in Whitby).

You'd be daft not to stay here!!

We stayed one night at this bed and breakfast and were very pleased. It was reasonably priced at only £55. Very clean with a private car park. Kev and Carol were the perfect hosts. While Carol cooked a wonderful full English breakfast for us, Kev chatted with us and provided us with brochures and info for all of the places we were going to visit that day. They are only a 5-10 minute walk into Whitby center - a charming adorable fishing village (turned out to be one of my favorite places in England).

Spotless and extremely friendly B&B in a lovely house just up the hill from the centre of Whitby in a nice peaceful area.

I could not imagine more delightful hosts than Kev and Carol. Both are more than willing to share their local knowledge and humour. Carol's breakfasts are superb.

Our room was spacious, comfortable and pleasantly furnished. Well-supplied tea tray was appreciated. The value of being able to park your car where you are staying is not to be underestimated in Whitby.

Best place to stay and much the best value of our trip to N Yorks.

Our biggest mistake was to stay only 2 nights.

Having read the reviews we booked for two nights and we were not disappointed at all. Kevin and Carol are a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are big and very tasty!! All in all excellent value for money and we will be returning as soon as time allows! Whitby is a brilliant place to visit - even the 199 steps are worth the trek for the wonderful views. You can't beat the Magpie restaurant for the best fish and chips in town either!!
