We loved the decor and the little homely touches, just small things like slippers and cotton buds in the bathroom - they are thoughtful and were appreciated. It's probably one of the nicest places we've stayed in... More

We've stayed here before and were very pleased to get a room for this visit. Lovely friendly place to stay. Rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts are something special. As long as we can get a room here we won't be looking at anywhere else in Whitby.
