We arrived and the check in was seamless. The staff carried our bags upstairs and explained everything and made us feel very welcome. The room was nice enough and the bed was very very comfy. My only gripe, and I mean a slight gripe would be the bathroom could do with a bit of an update.
A major plus was a bowl full of tea, coffee and milk. I think there's nothing worse than the 4 pots of milk you normally get!
All in all a quirky place, full of character. We would definitely stay again

The White Horse and Griffin Hotel is situated in the heart of the beautiful seaside holiday town of Whitby, North Yorkshire - …More
Well kept rooms to a high standard, tea-coffee making facilities limited (take your own top ups!), TV (SKY) and wi-fi (although we had top room in the house so you could only connect when sat on the toilet). Convenient for N York Moors and Whitby (bus every half hour during day and just under £10 taxi fare). Breakfast very good. Didn't stay for dinner as a bit expensive.
A good location in a very quiet village within sight and sound of the steam trains. Great for anyone planning a rail trip either on the Whitby-Pickering line or the Middlesborough-Whitby line. Real ale enthusiasts can also enjoy the nearby Crossing Club although you need to be a member or a Camra member. For price paid I could not complain about what was on offer. Good real ale in the hotel bar too; limited meal times out of season.
Our hosts were extremely helpful, informative, friendly and always cheerful. The breakfasts were above and beyond many 4 star hotels, freshly cooked and always served with a smile (and a quip). We couldn't recommend the place any higher - 10 out of 10.
