This place was a real find, right in the centre of Whitby. A stones throw from the Abbey and right next to the shops and pubs etc. Having said that it is very quiet and relaxing. Really friendly staff who were happy to help! We stayed in room 2, four poster bed with lots of quirky features and accessories! Beautifully put together and thought out! The room leads out onto a court yard which can be used by the other rooms, but mostly we had it to ourselves for a quiet glass of wine or reading in the sunshine. The courtyard is full of beautiful flowers and even a dove house!
The room itself was very small and the bathroom only had a shower, which didnt bother us! My husband did complain about the tiny fun sizes TV, which could only get two channels, however, in my opinion, you don't come to Whitby to stay in and watch TV!!!
All in all, a wonderful two night stay. If you want an unusual, romantic, break right in the centre of Whitby, this is the one for you!!
