We arrived early and were welcomed with Chocolate cake and a cup of tea or coffee.
Our luggage was taken up stairs by Garry. Karen and Garry made us feel very welcome, and always on hand with useful places to eat. Only a short walk from town and harbour. We stayed in the attic room, which had a Tissimo machine for Tea & Coffee, etc. Bathrobes and towels in the room made it feel special, bed nice and soft. Had a good night sleep (apart from the seagulls). Breakfast room spacious and modern with excellent service from Garry, nothing was too much trouble for him. Breakfast, from fresh fruit, home made yogurt, and jams, daily specials, such as tortilla wraps with tomato, chilli, cheese, etc. lovely. We would definately stay again when back in Whitby.

Recently return from a wonderful four night break in Whitby and we stayed at The Leeway B&B, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcomed, more like friends then guests, we were also offered homemade cake and beverages. Garry gave us a very informative welcome, showed us to our room St Mary's, which was beautiful with lovely decor, immaculately clean and every possible facility required, Tassimo coffee machine, bath robes, White Company toiletries to name but a few. Very comfortable kingside bed and rooms cleaned daily. Breakfasts weredelicious and the variety of choice was excellent. Garry and Karen should be extremely proud of what they have achieved, the Leeway is an absolute credit to them both. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Whitby.

From the very welcome cup of coffee and slice of carrot cake on arrival to the beautifully decorated and very luxurious rooms and the delicious and varied breakfasts, this is an amazing B&B in the beautiful town of Whitby. Karen and Garry made us feel very welcome, and were always on hand with helpful tips and suggestions about places to eat and drink, things to do etc. It's conveniently located, only about 5 minutes walk from the seafront, and in a quiet area (apart from the seagulls!!) where we had no problems finding a parking space. The variety of breakfast options is brilliant, including full English breakfasts with fresh local ingredients, lighter options such as scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on toast, and daily specials (try the American pancakes with crispy bacon and maple syrup...fantastic!), and all were very very tasty. We stayed in the attic room, which is smaller than the other rooms but just as comfortable, and a really cosy place to stay. White company toiletries and bathrobes in all the rooms made it feel very luxurious too! We'll definitely be back if we come and stay in Whitby again, and would recommend to anyone thinking of visiting.

Although we arrived quite early we were welcomed in and given a slice of cake and a cup of tea and coffee. The breakfast menu choice was very good and the full Engligh very well cooked. The poached eggs were perfect every time - no broken eggs yolks! Karen and Garry are very genial hosts and gave us lots of information re eating places etc. The room was very comfortable including the bed and pillows. Tassimo machine in the room was a much appreciated bonus. There was also a folder in the room giving all manor of information of things to do and places to go. Situated only a short walk from the town and beach so very convenient. My only slight critism was that the carpet was not vacuumed when the room was cleaned daily but perhaps I should have mentioned this at the time. Apart from that I would recommend and stay at the Leeway again.

Room Tip: We had the Cook room at the front of the property which had a king size bed

This was a much needed break - out 1st family holiday in 10 years!! We had a lovely welcome - including delicious chocolate cake! The rooms were very comfortable and spacious and tastefully decorated. Hot chocolate in her bedroom was ideal for our daughter!! Breakfast was equally delicious. The information in rooms and dining room were very helpful and Gary and Karen were regularly on hand to answer any queries and provide extra info. We would happily return - before 10 yrs though!
