I stayed at The Waverley for three nights in March, having decided to visit Whitby on a whim when planning a visit to Yorkshire. For such an idle choice, my days in Whitby turned out to be some of the best of my trip, mostly thanks to David and Tania and their hospitality at The Waverley. When David heard that...
