Fabulous 8.6 From 263 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not as good as I thought
Nice hotel but room was very cold due to the heating not turned on and the TV wasn't working. The bath was tiny too. Expected better for price of room but on the plus side the breakfast was good

Good 6.0
Grotty but good breakfast
Hotel is in very old building and the comfort level reflects this. Bed is hard, room smells damp and the street is noisy outside. It’s hard to sleep. On the good side the bathroom, although dark and dingy, had a good shower. Breakfast was very good.

A Little Gem in Whitby
I chose the White Horse & Griffin for an overnight stay. I found it charming. Unbelievably full of character and quirks. A clean and comfortable room and very helpful staff. I was particularly impressed by their provision of fresh milk in the bedrooms, rather than UHT. By pure coincidence, I discovered it is the favourite place to stay in Whitby for my daughter and her partner. They are regular visitors.
