The homemade cake and coffee was a lovely touch on arrival and quite delicious too. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable with plenty of towels and toiletries. The Tassimo coffee...

I spent two nights there and was very impressed with not only the accommodation which was very clean but also the level of service. Came down to breakfast and before I'd finished pouring my tea or buttering my toast as if by magic a fabulous and delicious full English breakfast appeared before me! Not sure how they do it so...

After an awful journey up, we were met at the door by Gary. We soon forgot the trip up and had a great weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and our room was perfect as usual. We will be back again next year!

From the moment we were ushered in to the high-ceilinged breakfast room on our arrival and fed lemon drizzle cake and hot chocolate ( a treat after five hours on the road from Surrey, beset with high winds and snow as we crossed the North Yorkshire Moors ), to our leaving and a cozy chat with Gary and Karen about...

My partner and i had a lovely time here in Whitby, and one of the reasons for this is our stay at the Leeway, on arrival we were welcomed and we were made to feel at home instantly, the owners were friendly and very professional, thank you very much! We will be returning in the future.

Just returned from another lovely visit to The Leeway. From Karen and Garry's warm welcome accompanied by a slice of delicious chocolate cake and coffee we were glad to be back. The Leeway is always lovely and cosy. The radiator in the room has it's own thermostat which is handy. Turn it down for hair drying and then its soon...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We really do appreciate it. Thank you for your kind comments on the dining room.

The third time we've stayed at the Leeway and the standard of the room and experience is as high as ever. Great facilities in the room, I stay away from home with work quite a lot and I wish all rooms were as well-equipped as the Leeway's. Breakfast was great with a locally-sourced full English available or daily specials for...
