“Not Quite a Double”
Reviewed September 17, 2006

Stayed at The Haven Crest with friends 15th/16th Sept 2006.
The place was a bit out on a limb, but had off road parking.
It took 20/25 mins walk to the old town of Whitby, which was along the clifftops and very pleasant.
We stayed in room N05, which although compact, was very clean and tidy. Tea and coffee available in room.
The en-suite bathroom looked quite new, but the shower had the power of a watering can.
Our friends stayed in room No1, which was meant to be a double, but was really very pokey. The "double" bed measured 3ft 10 inches. When mentioned to the owner he feigned surprise!
The breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice. It was let down by the "economy" sausage served with the Full English.
In the Whitby tourist brochure, the place is advertised as having 3 rooms; is has 6.
If you want to stay here, ask about bed size before booking.
