Fabulous 8.6 From 258 reviews

Very good 8.0
Delightful hotel, marred by morning cacophony
This is an ancient stage coach inn in the very heart of Whitby. It has many original features that add up to charm. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Our room (perhaps appropriately called Wakeful) overlooked the street. The room was huge with a sitting room attached. The ambience is old fashioned but well maintained with lovely Union curtains. Bathroom had everything but tissues. The shaving mirror was so high that I had to stand on tiptoes (I am 5ft 11ins). Breakfast was good, with amazing kippers smoked 100 meters up the road. We had dinner too. The menu was imaginative, and our portions (of cod with a tomato risotto) were huge and perfectly cooked. Shared dessert was also huge and delicious. Whitby Gin was fruity tasting. Coffee is not brilliant. Our main problem was an early morning cacophony that sounded like the overture of a Britten opera (though set in Whitby rather than Suffolk). The clock chimed, the lorries and vans going to and fro, often reversing and bleeping. The drivers greeted others in loud voices. Crates clanged. Seagulls swooped and called to one another. In daytime it would have created atmosphere. At 5am? No thank you. Some soundproof double glazing would make a good stay great. Or perhaps a room overlooking the the courtyard behind would have been better.

Lovely character hotel full of history. Warrior Queen room was a decent size, spotlessly clean and nice bathroom and shower. Bed was huge and very comfortable. Only problem was that as it is an old building, there were lots of creaky floorboards. So much so that it sounded like the people upstairs chose to get there daily steps in at 6.30 on our first morning there. Also as with a lot of holiday stays in Whitby, there is no parking and the local pay and display does get very busy in peak season. However in general a very nice stay, great breakfast and ideally situated to explore the old town and the abbey.

Good 6.0
Not my cup of tea!
I was disappointed that the towels were never changed I the 4 days we stayed there despite leaving them on the floor. The room wasn’t vacuumed either during our stay. The carpets on the stairs looked like they have been there since the place was built.

Slightly disappointing visit
We stayed on a Sunday night at this quirky old hotel with restaurant and had an enjoyable stay though found the incessant chatter from the seagulls all night coupled with the hourly chime of the local clock made sleeping difficult.We paid extra for a larger room which was not necessary and somewhat disappointing probably time for a makeover.The restaurant was on the expensive side and the menu fairly limited we had the Sirloin steak which was dry and left us disappointed though couldn’t fault the service.Breakfast on the other hand was excellent and couldn’t be faulted.
