Very friendly. Room was clean and well stocked with tea and biscuits. No breakfast available here but being right in the heart of the town there are numerous places to find something to eat. En suite was clean and plenty of hot water. Don't come expecting 5 star. This isn't what this place is about. If you want to pay... More

Nothing is standard about Kika's. Do not expect sterile Travelodgeicity. Do anticipate traditional budget accommodation in the heart of everything. No breakfast available but lots of cafes just footsteps away. Unlimited tea and biscuits at any hour. Parking is an issue as everywhere in downtown Whitby but 2-4 day permits can be bought at the Tourist Information centre by the... More

Once again have had a great time in Whitby, helped by knowing we have great accommodation. Very central,very quirky and very nice! Nothing is a problem for Veronica and she will try her best to sort out what you need and want. Have stayed with my husband and also with friends. Will be going back as soon as possible.

It's right in the centre of old town which is perfect in terms of location; utterly quaint and central to everything. It's literally a door on the shop front (no real sign to identify it, so keep a keen eye out when looking for it!). The place itself is very homely; it's 2 or 3 stories above the shops so... More

Had a nice double room en suite on second floor with tea and coffee facilities, great value and location, just left alone to enjoy our short break. Colourful room with eclectic mix of furnishings. In centre of town so only 40 minute parking best to leave car in long term car park which is only £6.00 for 24 hours.

wasn't expecting much for the price so wasn't to disappointed with the room, the decor could have been a bit nicer on the eyes (purple &yellow) but overall the room was ok. The bed was comfy with clean bedding the en suite was clean but again it was a deep purple colour. The landing area could have been less messy,... More
