“Lovely Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

We went to the leeway with my parents after they had visited the year before...
Let me start by staying I am very fussy and there was nothing I could complain about...the room was amazing and the breakfast was of the highest standard I've ever experienced in a B&B..
I can't wait to go back for a week June 2014...

Lovely stay, very welcoming hosts, excellent breakfast and lovely clean rooms with lots of little extras that make it an excellent choice of accommodation. Would definitely recommend the Leeway for your stay in Whitby.

My wife and I stay at the Leeway on the Goth weekend. The host's Karen and Gary were fantastic, a welcoming cup of coffee on arrival and some lovely home made cake. Our room was lovely ,clean and warm with lots of little extras.
After a great nights sleep we had one of the best breakfasts we've ever had, with such a great choice and daily specials.
Thanks Karen and Gary hope to see you soon.
Gary and Mary Butler.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are good.

Stayed Mid-November in the Scoresby, a lovely comfy and cosy room. Lots of little touches which made us feel very much at home. Karen and Garry were very welcoming, warm and natural, it really felt like they had welcomed us into their home. Breakfasts were great with the option of different specials each morning too. Would def stay at The Leeway again should we revisit Whitby (which I'm sure we will!)

Karen and Garry are fabulous host's, the room's are spotless with just the right amount of home comfort's. Must say never used a Tassimo so next time we go we will give it a whirl. Beautiful and pleasant Daughter and Cute as a button Grand Daughter as well. Ditto to the other reviews. x

Room Tip: N0 1 room has the biggest bed We have ever seen and it is comfy too!

Our stay at The Leeway was extremely comfortable and Karen and Garry have gone out of their way to attend to every little detail at this lovely B&B.
The coffee and cake were much appreciated on our arrival--a really special touch---thank you.
We stayed in Stoker room which is on the ground floor and has everything that you could want. Very comfortable bed. So much choice at breakfast too---everything was just perfect. .

This was our first stay in Whitby. The Leeway is an immaculate B&B, very comfortable and a great place to rest after a day around the town. Karen and Garry are the perfect hosts, with cake and coffee on arrival and informative on the best places to eat. Fantastic breakfast and the eggs Benedict special was amazing.
