Great little seaside b&b. Large rooms, newly upgraded bathroom, great location & at a great price. Perfect for an overnighter on a family trip to Whitby. It's not slick and sure there are signs of it being well used but it's an English seaside b&b & ideal for us. A great option is the ability to have a lie in... More

First thing to say is that when we booked, the photo of the hotel frontage was nothing like what we actually saw when we got there. This is very misleading and should be addressed immediately. However, the photo I`m seeing above (steps up to door,white windows IS the actual hotel itself.) The Hotel is typical of a Whitby large terraced... More

Good value for money; breakfast was also included in the price. It was by far the cheapest hotel we found in Whitby for a last minute break. The owner was lovely and the room was clean and fairly comfortable. Perfect location just off from the main stretch of town and around the corner from the Whalebone. The only downsides to... More

Just got home from this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised! The room was basic, clean and spacious. This hotel is a short 5 minute work to the main area of Whitby and come with free parking which is a massive bonus! The breakfast was in the hotel between 8-9am and then at the restaurant around the corner from 9-11am.... More

We loved this b & b which is close to the beach and the Whalebone and the childrens' paddling pool. We stayed in the family room 1. It has recently been modernised and was on the first floor. Breakfast was tasty and we were well looked after and found it to be of great value at high season.
