Very quirky. Stairs are narrow and steep. Bedrooms are large and comfy. Large choice of breakfasts. Quality food.

We liked the old property and very historic. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were helpful. Whitby was extremely busy, hotel was short staffed and one could sense the stress. At first a little disappointed as the check in was late due to a laundry issue. I was asked to remove this comment for some reason. The duty manager needs to calm down as I'm sure it would help everyone, but one can understand it at present. TV was a bit hit and miss as the aerial is faulty, not the socket DM. Bathroom had an unexplained leak. Would stay here again but not in the resolution room. Great holiday and look forward to going back.

Loved the ambiance and the history of the property. The staff were helpful and friendly and breakfast was delicious. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean but the bed wasn’t particularly comfortable and the decor was tired. Excellent location.
