We [me&wife] travelled with National Holidays to the Bay Royal Hotel, Whitby for a 2 night "All Inclusive Party" break, 19th - 21st December. On arrival at the hotel at approx 1.45pm we were told our rooms would not be ready until 15.30 but that we could leave our cases in one of the lounges and have a walk around the area until we could book in or use the bar for a hot or cold drink. Having been to Whitby a number of times before we opted to walk in to the shopping area and had an excellent toasted teacake and coffee [£6.50 for 2] in Elizabeth Botham's Confectioners and Cafeteria and can be highly recommended for snacks and lunch. The hotel is in a fantastic sea front location with panaramic views across the harbour and down the River Esk. The interior of the hotel is dated and in need of some TLC. The staff are very friendly and nothing was to much for them. The food was good and plentiful with a chioice for all courses at Dinner. The 3 hour free bar was a bit of a marathon to get drinks with queues of upto 30 people waiting to be served but having said that the service was fairly quick. The room was clean and comfortable. For the amount we paid it was very good value and we will be going again.
