Abbotsleigh
Ranked #4 of 154 Whitby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We, my wife and I, are half way through our three week tour of the British Isles. So we spend two days in Whitby. We chose the Abbotsleigh because of the great reviews that it got on Tripadvisor. And guess what? It is better than I expected. Sharon is so gracious and so helpful and so sincere that it just makes the experience so wonderful. The room, the breakfast and the location ( with parking) cannot be beat. How do they do that with all of the competition surrounding them in this wonderful town? I don't know and I don't care. It is the place for me and Ellen.

Having stayed again for the fifth time we would never even bother to check out anywhere else. You expect at some point with most establishments you consistently go to that inevitably a slight chink in the armor of mine hosts could conceivably appear. Just put that thought out of your head in respect of Abbotsleigh because Sharon and Paul just won't let it happen. Their hospitality and standard of food and accommodation is second to none.You don't even have to take my word for it just look at the ratings. We can't all be wrong in making this our favourite place to stay in Whitby can we.

Everything about the Abbotsleigh during our stay was just perfect. Paul and Sharon go out of their way to make your stay a delightful and pleasant one. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfasts and cake hit the right spot exactly. Sharon even washed evidence of seagulls from our friends car before they left, now tell me where else the hosts would go to that much trouble to make your stay just perfect. All accolades are totally deserved and this is the only place for us to stay in Whitby in future.

Room Tip: Rooms are on three floors so if stairs are a problem take this into consideration.

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here at the end of May, beginning of June. I'd recommend it to anyone. The rooms are lovely (we stayed in the starfish room), the breakfast is great and the owners are a genuinely lovely couple. Oh & there's delicious home made cake too! Not far from the centre (within walking distance for a lazy person) and is right by the sea front. We'd go back to Whitby just to stay there. Stay here, you won't be disappointed

My wife and I recently returned from a three night stay at Abbotsleigh.
We totally agree with all the wonderful comments made in the previous reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and experienced all the superb aspects described. Congratulations Paul & Sharon on achieving such comments as they are all well deserved. We look forward to returning in the near future. Thank you for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 'Ammonite'. Brilliant.

Friendly hosts and an abundance of little extras that only come with such attention to detail.
Fabulous breakfasts which set us up for the day and plenty of cake on hand throughout the day to fill any gaps.
