We stayed 1 night for Dinner B&B and had the most wonderful stay. We feel as if we've been away for much longer than 1 night as it was so relaxed and welcoming. We started with a pot of tea in the beautiful old, wood panelled lounge - as we just relaxed in the cosy arm chairs and read. There...

We had a two night stay over, bed, breakfast and evening meal. The accommodation was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and very helpful...food was delicious and plentiful. We will be booking again and would recommend this place, even the taxi into Whitby was reasonably priced.

Approached with some nervousness as there were rather more negative reviews than I would normally find acceptable. Warm welcome by reception staff, a porter waiting to take our bags up, nice clean room with refurbished bathroom and very smart shower; partial sea view. We stayed on the DB&B special offer - £89 for two. The full 3 course dinner was...

Had 2 nights here. Weather was foul but didn't spoil our stay in this lovely hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. Hotel is in a beautiful position close to Whitby and other sight seeing spots. Evening meal offer was a bargain at £25.95 for 2 for a 3 course meal and was delicious. Would definitely return.

I went here for a one night stay with my partner. The inattentive, slightly rude receptionist was pretty much a sign of things to come with staff - no 'welcome' or 'how was your journey' simply a 'sign this form' here is your key your room is down there, she merely pointed at a corridor and didn't guide us any...

We have just got back from a one night stay (Saturday/Sunday). To start the summary off, the weather was horrendous. It was freezing cold with rain/sleet and a strong easterly wind (from Siberia I would guess) We were just waiting for the locusts. Anyway, we got there about 2pm. The drive on the way there was pretty straight forward however...

Lovely peaceful location near Sandsend. Tranquil and relaxing with first class food and I have to say the cheescake for dessert was the best I have ever had. We would stay here again and recommend this unique hotel to friends and family as set in lovely grounds and staff are brilliant. The perfect getaway for a short or long stay...
