The Penny Hedge in Whitby has a lot to shout about! Nicely positioned on the South East side of Whitby's historic town 1.5 miles from the harbour and Abbey and is the perfect place to visit or stay and explore the surroundings! From the most popular story about Dracula coming from Whitby, see the most famous abbey in the UK, the legendary steps to the top. We have 28 rooms with free breakfast.

Close enough to town to walk, free parking, fast check in. Staff are lovely. Spacious clean and bright room. Well maintained and comfortable. Attached to the pub, you almost don’t need to leave. There is even a Sainsbury’s next door to make life that much easier

We stayed for one night whilst enjoying a short visit to Whitby. We arrived at 1pm and as check in didn’t open until 2pm we decided to have lunch in the onsite restaurant. They offer a £5 menu which was amazing value for money. My husband ordered the burger and nachos to go with

Room booked was clean comfortable and spacious. Very friendly and efficient staff. Comfy bed with spotlessly clean bathroom. We ate in the pub next door and feasted off the £5 specials menu. Delicious and well cooked pub grub! Will definitely stay again.

Rooms are ok. Didn’t have evening meal as we had other engagements. Had continental breakfast as we don’t have large breakfasts. Surprised to find a jar of instant coffee rather than a filter coffee. Even a coffee machine with ground beans would’ve been better. That’s just

Good Afternoon, Although we try to ensure that all rooms are as equally as quiet, we do get requests for the rooms on the car park side, and we will try our best to arrange so all requests are met. Should you require any further information on our rooms, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind Regards, Penny Hedge

Good Afternoon, Unfortunately we can not currently be found on Google Maps, but we are located just next to the Sainsburys store on Stainsacre Lane. If driving from town, heading up Stainsacre Lane towards Scarborough, Cholmley Way is the turning on the left just before the entrance to Sainsburys. If you take this left on to Cholmley way, then take an immediate left on to Botany way, you will find the entrance to our on site car park. Should you require any further information or alternative directions to the hotel, please do not hesitate to contact the hotel on 01947661548, where a member of our team will happily assist with any enquiry. Kind Regards, Natalie Raven Assistant Manager
