“Beware of the seagulls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Gary & Karren are wonderful hosts the breakfast was excellent and the room bright and clean..
Despite putting a lot of effort into raising the standard of accommodation in the town I believe the local council are letting them down because they seem to be doing nothing to control the seagull population which unfortunately kept us awake most of the night.

Room Tip: Book a room at the rear of the B&B to avoid the worst of the seagull noise

A tastefully decorated B&B in a perfect location and with hosts who apparently think about everything! Loved all the finishing touches like the folder suggesting things to do, the Tassimo drinks maker, daily weather and tide update or the lavender pillow mist. Impressive amount of breakfast choices including daily specials. And it all started with a very warm welcome over tea and cake! A very good choice for your stay in Whitby.

What a wonderful stay again at The Leeway! It's a tremendous place where one can relax and always be sure of top hospitality (starting with the welcome drink and gorgeous cake), top quality and comfort in the beautiful, designer-decorated rooms with deep-comfort beds, and top satisfaction after the delicious, wholesome breakfasts. You have done it again, Karen & Garry, and made us so sad to leave and so eagerly anticipating our next visit!

Room Tip: Double en-suite rooms all good.

What a great place to stay. Lovely welcome by Karen with a huge piece of chocolate cake & coffee.
Room was beautifully decorated & so comfortable & lots of lovely extras, bathrobes, tassimo drinks maker etc. Breakfast was perfect, with an added extra of a different "special" each day. Also home made jams & marmalades etc. Karen & Garry are the perfect hosts & nothing is too much trouble for them. You both made us very welcome & would not hesitate to book with you in the future. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Cannot praise The Leeway highly enough. Everything was perfect from the welcome of coffee and cake and genuine warmth that Karen and Garry give with ease to our room with en-suite that was top notch. The thought and extra little touches made this a place somewhere we will return to and one that we would highly recommend.

Stayed for 3 nights, warm welcome with home-made chocolate cake. Room on top floor (Hudson) small but comfortable. Small bathroom but adequate. Only roofwindow, no streetview. Very varied breakfast. Recommended!

Just got back from the Soul Weekend which was fab, and made all the better by staying at The Leeway. Can't praise it highly enough, from the warm welcome, comfortable room, don't think I've slept so well in ages, and lovely breakfast with great choices. I've booked again for next year and can't see me staying anywhere else now. Thank you Karen and Garry, your B&B is a credit to you.
