Great Location, lovely hosts, excellent breakfast and great service! The room was very well appointed and there were lots of lovely treats such as the retro sweeties, and luxury soaps and shower gels etc. Free Wifi, a hairdryer and even a heat matt for your hair tongs! What more could you ask for. Thanks Garry and Karen

Thank you so much for your fabulous review. So glad you enjoyed our extra touches like the sweeties. We too love our toiletries, Ghilcrest and Soames BeeKind, which are amazing, but which also helps with our Green Tourism, as they are environmentally friendly, and support the Honey Bee. Hope we see you again soon.

Perfect location and lovely B&B. Our room was spacious with a huge comfy bed. We especially liked all the little extras in the room like a coffee machine, robes and even bottles of water by our bed.

Again a fabulous stay with Karen and Garry, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Whitby! Everything you coud need or want is provided, nothing is too much trouble. Karen's breakfast is full of local produce and served with a smile from Garry. See you in the new year!

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
