I booked this hotel for my wife's special birthday and the superior room we were allocated (18) was excellent. It was large with 2 easy chairs and a canopied bed as well as a large wardrobe. The furniture was in keeping with the 100 year old house as was all the other furniture within the hotel. Our friends superior room (25) was set in the extension and whilst more modern than ours was smaller and lacked the ambiance of our room. It is a rambling building with lots of corridors and public rooms such as two restaurants, quiet lounge and well stocked bar with plenty of comfortable seats. It is set a couple of miles from Whitby in its own grounds surrounded by fields and trees and is not far from the park and ride (suggestion - use the P&R as parking is difficult in Whitby). The staff were friendly and helpful and seemed pleased to serve you. There is a good choice at breakfast and the dinner menu was varied and good value. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was we had problems at both breakfasts. The first morning my wife ordered smoked cod with poached egg and a sauce. She requested it without sauce but it arrived without the egg as well. Unfortunately when it came back the fish was cold and uneatable. The young man just mumbled his apologies and that was that. The next morning our friends ordered smoked salmon which was much too salty. The waitress immeadiately spoke to the chef who confirmed it was a bad batch and she offered other choices. This was the way to handle a complaint so perhaps more staff training required. Overall an excellent choice for a special weekend.
