Really enjoyed my stay here over the new years weekend. Was made to feel very welcome by Kev and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and all the best places to visit. Room was comfortable with everything we needed and the extra glazing on the windows was brilliant as we were next to the road and...

You are made to feel welcome as soon as you step through the door! The beds are comfy, the rooms are clean and warm and the breakfast is delicious! Kev is so kind and genuine. Had such a lovely break; our 2nd time here (although been back to Whitby, staying in different places) and we definately will not be leaving...

A home from home. 'Stayed in Dracula' room - four poster bed, gothic decorations, and immaculately clean. (Modern concessions, however, in the form of tea-making facilities and the TV/video player :-) ). Extra touches included the 'emergency kit' in case of vampires, and - in case of a longer stay than ours- a selection of scary games in the wardrobe...

My mum and I have just returned from a 2 nights stay at Bats. This place is amazing, the decor is fabulous and it was immaculately clean. Kev the owner goes above and beyond, he even picked us up from the station. The breakfast was first class and a great start to the day. All in all, a fantastic break.

My lovely fiance brought me here for my birthday on Halloween. I've been wanting to come here for literally years however it's always sold out on Halloween due to goth weekend so I count myself very lucky to have actually been able to stay here especially on Halloween! The b&b is without a doubt the best b&b I've ever had...

Bats and Broomsticks is such an amazing B&B in Whitby. A Dracula themed B&B in Draculas hometown! The hosts Kev and Tish are so friendly, you feel like you've known them for years. The rooms are amazing, me and my partner stayed in the Lunar Suite. Four poster bed, Sky TV, coffin sofa and your own vampire killing kit. This...

Whitby is one of my favourite places in the world and since I found Bats & Broomsticks on our last visit, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when we visit. You get a warm welcome, rooms full of character, comfortable beds, brilliant breakfasts and all with the goth/witchy character. If you like dragons and a great nights sleep, I...
