“excellent!”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

The Waverley was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. Steven and Julie were both on hand to greet us and offer help with luggage if needed. The room was VERY clean, comfortable and had lots of extra little thoughtful touches.. Fresh milk in flask, hand cream, cotton wool balls, tissues, sewing kit just to mention a few! Also liked 'Waverley Bear' :)
We had a lovely view of the Abbey from our window (apologies to friends for stealing 'their' room!!!)
Breakfast was freshly cooked with fresh, local produce and ample amounts of toast, tea and coffee were available. Looking forward to our return trip in October. Thanks Steven and Julie

Room Tip: Our room on 2nd floor had a brilliant view of the abbey

The room was excellent, very clean and contained everything we needed ( we got fresh milk in a flask every day for our tea and coffee in our room) The breakfast was gorgeous with not a trace of grease or fat!! Stephen and Julie were excellent hosts and told us where the best places to eat where and how to travel around Whitby. We'll be back in August 2012

Thank you for your lovely comments and taking the time to make them, we appreciate all feedback. Your comments are all the more gratifying considering that we had a major power cut whilst you were with us which restricted our ability to provide adequate heating and hot water or what we consider should be available at breakfast, you couldn't even dry your hair properly. Thanks again.

Thank you again Julie and Steve for another great stay. The breakfasts were excellent as expected, and your hospitality was warm as ever. The opportunity to use a laptop computer that you have available for guests to use is a great idea, well done! We look forward to staying again!!!

The Waverley really is the best place to stay at in Whitby. Our hosts are always there to help if needed and to offer advice about places to visit in the area. On top of that the place is always spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are the best we've had on our travels.WE'd recommend the Waverley to anyone wanting B&B accommodation at its finest.

Stephen and Julie made us feel very welcome. The Waverley is spotless and homely. it is situated in a quiet part of town within easy access of town or beach and near a lovely park. This was our first trip to Whitby and we benefitted from Stephen's local knowledge which was very useful. Breakfast is excellent. Altogether a lovely stay.
