Seeing in the new year just wouldn't be the same if we didn't stay at the Leeway. Karen and Garry provide those all important extras to make your stay that little bit more special. We like to visit Whitby twice a year and would not stay anywhere else. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable with everything you need. Breakfast is always excellent whether you have the full English or one of Karen's daily specials. Karen and Garry are the perfect hosts and we highly recommend the Leeway.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

I booked a single room for four nights. I had never stayed at The Leeway before. When I arrived Karen had upgraded me to a King size ensuite room. It is a lovely place to stay and it is owned by a lovely couple. I will be back next January

This is the 7th time we have stayed at The Leeway and the rooms and service was fabulous as always.

When we arrived there was a hot drink offered and cake along with a lovely catch up. We were shown to our room which as always was impeccable I can't think of anything you might need that is not in there. The room was clean and cosy. Breakfast was great with a choice of Cerals, light bites and the Leeway Grill it certainly sets you up for the day.

I would not stay anywhere else when visiting Whitby and would highly recommend anyone to stay at The Leeway. The rooms, service and hospitality of Garry and Karen is fabulous nothing is too much trouble.

From the moment we arrived we were made welcome, Gary and Karen are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble.
Our room was, once again, exceptional and we were more than comfortable, and to top everything we were served with an excellent breakfast each day.
We can not recommend the Leeway highly enough, and we shall definitely be returning.
Thank you Gary and Karen.

We recently stayed for 2 nights b&b at The Leeway and I can honestly say it's the best b&b we've ever stayed in. It's beautiful, clean and the attention to detail is fabulous from the homemade cake on arrival to the luxury coffee machine in the room. The hosts were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be going back. Superb!!

Have stopped at the Leeway on numerous occasions and always enjoyed our stay.

Gary helped with the luggage and we were offered a lovely cake and a warm drink on arrival. Just the job after a long drive.

In the morning Karen cooked a lovely breakfast that set us up for the day. We had a good size room that was nice and comfortable.
Have booked again for March and I have no hesitation to recommend the Leeway for a stay in Whitby.
Well done both of you.
