Having read several other reviews about this hotel I was wary of what my wife and I would find, but I need not have worried. The owner is a lovely woman who makes you feel very welcome and the hotel itself, although small, is fine. We had room number 2 which has a small but adequate bathroom attached (not one of the 'cupboards' described by other reviewers) so perhaps we were lucky (so try and book this room if you're going there!). It was small, cosy, clean and suited us fine for the two nights we were there. The bar is welcoming and the prices are very good. Breakfast was excellent (the full English was one of the best I've had) but we didn't take dinner there so I can't comment on evening meals. This was our first time in Whitby and we are definitely going to go back there - it's a lovely little typically English seaside town and would look great in the summer I would think (although it looked pretty good in the middle of Feb), and the Seacliffe is ideally placed for the beach (although there is a steep climb down to it).
All in all, we had a great weekend there and I would definitely visit again. Incidentally, the owner told us that they are not satisfied with some of the rooms and so are closing over Christmas for renovation and refurbishment.
