“Lovely stay at the White Owl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Just stayed at the White Owl for our wedding anniversary and we had the Garden Room which was the downstairs front room. Had a lovely peaceful stay, with a lovely view of the Bay and the tranquil front garden area was very calming. We chose to stay here because we could take our dog. Host was very friendly and we had a lovely breakfast delivered to our room which was absolutely lovely. All was clean and tidy and we could have stayed longer. I can recommend this guest house and I would definitely go again should the opportunity arise.

We recently stayed in the Garden Room and I was delighted with our stay. It is a friendly and accessible guest house, very well located just a short walk to the old village. The room itself is peaceful and private and Ann's cooked breakfasts were of the highest order. Bed is comfy, room has a fridge and microwave and tea/coffee facilities. Our little dog was made very welcome and there is a parking space for the room (very useful for this area). Overall, would definitely return, thanks Ann, for your hospitality.

Arived at the white owl fairly late Friday evening to a friendly welcome by Anne the owner, who showed us & our two dogs to our room. The seafarers apartment which was clean tidy and full of character with everything we needed, we felt very much at home . The B&B is in a very good location and are looking forward to a return visit soon, we would recommend staying at the White Owl ,

Stayed here on a spur of the moment decision on May Bank Holiday weekend. I think this was the last room available in the whole of Robin Hood's Bay as the weather was so good.
We stayed in the garden room and although the big bay window overlooks the main street it still felt very private.
The room ncluded car parking to the rear of the building which was really convenient.
Ann, the owner, was very friendly & helpful.
Payment is by cash or cheque but the shop a few doors up does cash-back so you don't need to go miles for a cash point.
The room had everything we needed - comfy bed, lots of space, fridge, en-suite - even a microwave!
There weren't many toiletries provided but as we hadn't expected to be staying that night we should have been better prepared.
As the name, The White Owl, might suggest there is a bird theme running through the property & our room had lots of bird-related ornaments & plates on display which all added to it's charm.
A really pretty little property with a lovely garden and only a few minutes walk from the bay.

We recently stayed for the 2nd time at the White Owl, in the Balcony apartment, lovely location and fantastic views over the Bay. The hosts Ann and David were very kind, especially as my husband was not very well when we were there, but they were very helpful. The garden is lovely, as is the Summerhouse, perfect for relaxing.

I remember visiting Robin Hoods bay and the White owl and loving it. i am the third generation in my family to continue visiting the White Owl and this time was accompanied by my girlfriend. We stayed in the Balcony Room, an apartment with a four poster bed, kitchen, bathroom and of course a balcony that overlooks the bay and the beautiful coastline. The apartment was as usual, clean tidy and well presented with a nice homely feel to it. Anne and her husband are excellent hosts, lovely and friendly!!! Lovely B&B in a lovely location :)

We have just come back from our stay at the White Owl guest house and apartments, where we stayed in the Balcony apartment. It was lovely and very comfortable, with excellent views.
We would definately like to return in the future.
