I'd read the reviews about this hotel before booking so was already aware of the possibility of lots of noise from the harbour and the local hostelries, so this wasn't a surprise. This wasn't a problem for us as we were two of those very people spending time in those hostelries! But, as has been mentioned before, don't book this one if you want a quiet night!
We found the location ideal for our night in Whitby and didn't bring the car, so didn't have the stress of trying to park.
The hotel staff were really helpful and friendly and on showing us to our room (Room 4) told us about there being no tea/coffee facilities in the room and that all we needed to do was phone and they would bring it. Which indeed they did!
The room was lovely, very clean and the bed REALLY comfy, but the only thing I had a problem with was some noisy plumbing in the bathroom - regular noises from the pipework - which kept me awake for a couple of hours. I remedied this by putting tissue paper in my ears, and that seemed to do the trick.
Breakfast was fab and we had a live pianist playing relaxing tunes while we ate - don't get that very often!
Not the cheapest hotel but in this case (in our opinion) you get what you pay for.
We'll be back!!
