The photos on this particular website (hotel.com) were false advertising. We booked believing we had reserved a room in a large white fronted building with a large semicicle window with stunning views of the bay from the lounge room according to the photos posted. When we arrived it was a small yellow bed and breakfast with views of terraced houses...

Rooms are small and no bed head. Bed had very noisy under sheet which appeared to be plastic and mattress which needed replacing. Breakfast was reasonable but...

This hotel we found to be a very nice stay,bedroom was very clean and warm. We liked the fact that the hotel did breakfast 8 till 9 and if you didn't make that you could go to another resteraunt up till 12 . We will definitely be staying again, it was very good value for money.

The hotel was nice, although décor slightly outdated, the breakfast was nothing to write home about would I go back no for ease of access to the town it was good. There is parking although you need to book it when you book the hotel for a fee of £5.00.

Spent two nights at the hotel during The Whitby Blues Festival, a place that has the basics right; clean room, comfy bed, hot shower and a fantastic vegetarian breakfast. A really good base to explore Whitby and the surrounding area. The owners and staff are very likeable and we're always obliging.
