Great Stay
Great stay and even though we couldn't have a cooked breakfast, the bags left every morning with fresh produce, were lovely and set us up for the day. Would definitely like to stay again. The only downside side is the parking, but this cant be helped and with patience you do find a space near, and the parking permits are brill.

Limited space
Had a family room but because of bunk beds theres nowhere to put your case except the floor. Not enough table space and shower room tiny with no space for washbag etc.Hairdryer not working and shower ok but water came out in spurts. Very small for 2 adults with children. Couples' rooms looked much better. Breakfast box.contained yogurt, juice, eggs, cheese , biscuits etc. Parking with permit on very busy streets.

great location
Great location, could see the Abbey from our bedroom window. The room was dated but all amenities and clean, not a cooked breakfast because of circumstance (covid 19) Overall had a fab time! 😀

Small and friendly.
The hotel was what I call adequate £73 for the money wasn't too bad. Stayed very good quality places for a little more money. However it was very quiet the room was clean and tidy but dated. During covid19 restrictions high standard of sanitation was kept. Basically happy with our 1 night stay paid £2 for a 48 hour parking permit which cheap as chips. The owner was friendly and helpful unfortunately couldn't offer the usual breakfast cov19 restrictions. Overall happy with our stay and probably book and stay in the same hotel in future..

Well worth a visit
We stayed out of season just before the Coronavirus swept the country. There was only 1 other couple staying. Our 1st floor ensuite room, though tiny, was immaculate and had everything we needed. Breakfast was good with plenty of options. We unfortunately left an item of property behind and are extremely grateful to Stephen for taking the time to contact us and arrange for its retrieval. Stephen very kindly provided us with a parking disc so we were able to leave our car within sight of our bedroom window (almost unheard of in Whitby). Centrally placed within short walking distance of important places like the Magpie and a bracing walk along the pier, though for the infirm do be warned this involves steep streets or flights of steps, but that description applies to quite a bit of Whitby.
