First time in Whitby and can not wait to return, will be back to stay at the Leeway without hesitation.
Perfect location, superb facilities and top class hosts.
Too many places to eat and drink all of which supply oversized portions and value for money, thank heavens for the seafront run!!

we stayed at the leeway bank hol weekend and what a great find. I'll keep it short....great welcome perfect rooms with a nice modern touch and a tassimo coffee machine. Breakfast was really nice and we will be going back again. Oh and only 5 mins to the harbour area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are decorated in there own style but we stayed in st Mary's a great room

We have just returned from another fantastic Goth weekend in whitby made even better by our stay in The Leeway. From the moment you step through the door, until the moment you check out your stay is made extra special by the owners Gary and Karen. The rooms are fantastic! Very spacious and immaculately clean and very tastefully decorated. The breakfasts are incredibly tasty, well presented and piping hot. There are also daily breakfast specials to try. But it's Gary and Karen and the little touches that they've thought of that makes The Leeway stand out from all the other places to stay in whitby. From the coffee and cake on arrival to the tassimo machine and sweetie jar in your room they go the extra mile to make your stay special as we found out on our wedding anniversary when we arrived downstairs for breakfast to find our table decorated and a bottle of chilled Bucks fizz waiting for us to enjoy. These are just a few examples of what makes The Leeway excellent value and a fantastic place to stay. A great family run business, ran by a genuinely lovely couple. I have read in other reviews of The Leeway that you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend and having experienced it for myself I couldn't agree more. Highly recommended...

We had an excellent stay at The Leeway. The warm welcome, hospitality and 'no-fuss' check-in were just what we needed after a long journey. The rooms were very clean, spacious, well equipped and the beds/bedding were top quality ensuring a good nights sleep after a busy day out sightseeing and lots of walking.

The breakfast can't be rated highly enough - an excellent range of choice, even more impressive was the quality of the food and the preparation is second to none, better than most hotels.

And to top it off, nothing is too much trouble for the hosts - even finding and posting to us my Mum's lost earrings :-)

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.
