Clean, spacious room with on site parking.
Lovely clean spacious room within a 10 min walk into centre. On site parking was a bonus. Socially distanced continental breakfast was a perfect set up for the day and as it was delivered to the room it was nice to eat when we wanted rather than a set time.

Very easy access, any questions answered promptly. Covid friendly breakfast delivered to room (left outside), ample to satisfy. Had a lovely room at the top of the house with a fantastic view of the Abbey. Be prepared for uphill walks but that's Whitby anyway!

Great stay
Old house with very nice large rooms, enough space for several days in Whitby. Room was clean and the breakfast left outside the door at 8:30(mixture of cereal, warm bread, boiled eggs, fruit and biscuits) each morning was enough to get the day off to a good start and a nice change to sit next to the window in the room for breakfast, very relaxed. Bathroom was very clean and hand sanitiser was left in room to use which was a nice touch. Only thing which caught us out was there is no toiletries due to covid so remember to take your own soap. A guaranteed parking spot is a must in Whitby which this has and a five minute walk down the hill gets you right into the heart of the town unless you stop off in Pannet park which is about halfway into town. Altogether a very nice stay and would happily stay again.
