“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

As a couple in our forties, we stay in a lot of varied accommodation throughout the UK. The visit to the Leeway was one of the best. Very welcoming,clean, spacious and centrally located. We would definately stay there again.

One of the best guest houses I've stopped at in a long time, Garry and Karen were fantastic hosts, the room was very clean and modern with all latest mod cons needed. Breakfast was exceptionally good and within 5 min walk to town.will definitely be stopping their again. 10 out of 10.

Well, where do I start... I'll try and do justice to this great place and wonderful hosts!

I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels and many great B&B's...
This one is easily the best, I would stay here in preference to any other place.

The Victorian building is beautiful to start. The rooms are fantastic, the decor and quality of fixtures and fittings is spot on as is the Breakfast!!! (some of the best eggs and bacon I have ever tasted! That lady sure knows how to poach an egg! haha)

There are lots of personal touches and great attention to detail which make all the difference and separate The Leeway from anywhere else I have stayed. From the awesome drinks machines in your room to the fresh lemon water left by your bed every night, the information on local restaurants, the free wifi is of a good speed (I was easily able to watch Netflix and get my fix of "The Killing") the shower was amazing too, I seriously could go on and on... I haven't even mentioned what great value it is and it is fantastic value!!

The real jewels in the Leeway's crown though are the two owners.
Gary and Karen are just extremely lovely and caring people, they manage to be involved without being too "in your face" very friendly, very helpful and just truly great at what they do...

Nothing is too much trouble for them and Gary was a fountain of knowledge and advice on where to go, what to see and routes to different places of interest etc.

So obviously this is a 5 star review, the easiest 5 stars I have ever given.

PS try and get hold of some of Karens Lemon Butterfly cakes- Devine!

We really truly had a great time in Whitby and surrounding area and a great deal was thanks to Gary and Karen and their beautiful house.

So? Would we go back again?

We will be booking shortly and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else :)

Get it booked!!!!

Room Tip: I have given Pool and Fitness centre 5 stars, even though there isn't either. haha We stayed...

This was our second stay at the Leeway. We have stayed in other hotels in the town but in our experience would not consider staying any where else.
The hospitality, breakfast, rooms, facilities and overall cleanliness can't be faulted.
We will be visiting Whitby again in the future and know already where we are staying.

Room Tip: The bedroom Cook is very comfortable and overlooks the front of the hotel

What a lovely place to stay, we have stayed in many hotels/B&Bs and I have got to say that The Leeway has got to be at the top! We never met Karen But Garry was an exceptional host, most welcoming, pleasant and very helpful.
The room although at the top of the house ( I'm not the fittest!) was really lovely, very clean, our every need thought of.
I have never had so much choice when it comes to breakfast, and was very tasty. As it was easter when we stayed they had a lovely touch with Little Easter bunnies on each table for the guests, very nice.
Thanks to Garry and Karen for making our stay so enjoyable.

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights just after our wedding and we had such a lovely time. The owners are extremely helpful and welcoming and the rooms we saw were all of a very high standard. The location of the Leeway is excellent as it is within walking distance of all Whitbys main attractions. The breakfast at The Leeway is absolutely outstanding and we loved that locally sourced produce was used. We had a fantastic time and hope to return soon. Thank you!
