We stayed only for one night but it was at the best B&B yet in Whitby - and we have been visiting for 30 years! Lovely hosts, wonderful breakfast choice and a delightful modern room with king size bed. We shall be back.

We have stayed at The Leeway for 3 nights and can honestly say this hotel is the very best on all fronts. Gary and Karen are excellent hosts and the bedrooms are second to none and the breakfasts amazing. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Whitby

Had a lovely stay at The Leeway, started well with ginger cake on arrival (my favourite) to a very comfy bed and a good shower, really tasty breakfast. Great hosts Karen and Gary, very friendly and chatty. Would recommend to family and friends. Hope your Dad is feeling better. Regards Fiona
