My mum and I have just returned from a 2 nights stay at Bats. This place is amazing, the decor is fabulous and it was immaculately clean. Kev the owner goes above and beyond, he even picked us up from the station. The breakfast was first class and a great start to the day. All in all, a fantastic break.

My lovely fiance brought me here for my birthday on Halloween. I've been wanting to come here for literally years however it's always sold out on Halloween due to goth weekend so I count myself very lucky to have actually been able to stay here especially on Halloween! The b&b is without a doubt the best b&b I've ever had... More

Bats and Broomsticks is such an amazing B&B in Whitby. A Dracula themed B&B in Draculas hometown! The hosts Kev and Tish are so friendly, you feel like you've known them for years. The rooms are amazing, me and my partner stayed in the Lunar Suite. Four poster bed, Sky TV, coffin sofa and your own vampire killing kit. This... More

Whitby is one of my favourite places in the world and since I found Bats & Broomsticks on our last visit, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when we visit. You get a warm welcome, rooms full of character, comfortable beds, brilliant breakfasts and all with the goth/witchy character. If you like dragons and a great nights sleep, I... More

Just got back from our 8th visit to Bats and Broomsticks. We quite honestly couldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Whitby. Kev is a genuinely fantastic host who can't do enough for you to make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable. Can't wait to get back up there for another spell as soon as possible.

If you want a full gothic experience, you must try this guesthouse. Nothing has been left out. From beautifully crafted silver cutlery to black and purple ducks and four poster beds everything is in theme. The detail is amazing and a bit overwhelming. Fangs Kev is a thoughtful host and produces a great traditional breakfast. If you are not a... More
