My partner and I stayed at the hotel for a weekend trip to Whitby. We found the entrance to the hotel very attractive and the hotel had a very traditional, but pleasant feel. The room itself was spacious and clean with plenty of room for clothes storage. We were slightly unimpressed that our 'double' room consisted of two twin beds zipped together, and the beds themselves, although comfortable, creaked at the slightest move. We were considering eating at the hotel in the evening as it is fairly isolated if you travel there on public transport as we did. However the options for vegetarians were limited so we instead walked down to the nearest village, Sandsend, where there are several nice pubs. Overall we did enjoy our stay and found the surroundings quiet and relaxing, the main downside, however, has to be the breakfast. The restaurant was nice but the food lacked the quality £25 for two people one would expect. As vegetarians we contacted the hotel previously to make sure that there would be options for us (as we were aware of how traditional it was) but were reassured that there would be more than enough for us. Once ordering the cooked vegetarian breakfast we were told that there were no sausages for us and no alternative was offered. What arrived was far from appealing, a few lukewarm beans, an egg that was solid and chewy and 'bacon' that had barely been cooked. The continental selection was also fairly limited.
Aside from these issues we still did enjoy our stay however would advise vegetarians to consider the extensive range of eateries in Whitby for breakfast instead!
