Reviewed 8 January 2014

We stopped off for a meal early New Years Eve; we managed to get a table to seat 11 people incredibly! All the staff were friendly enough and the two six year olds we had with us seemed to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. The menu was very basic and most of the group opted for the burgers. We had to order all the food at the bar and pay up front; we didn't get service at the table unfortunately. The meals came out promptly and we call agreed the burgers were very good. There was a fault with one dish; the lamb was tasteless, but that was the only issue in the whole party. I would recommend this place for a quick no frill meal, and drinks. I don't have any comment on the hotel because we didn't stay.

All the staff were welcoming and showed an interest in our travels. The food and service was good and efficient with the staff making sure we were happy with what we got. Although the room was basic it was clean and had all the necessary accessories.

I booked to stay at The Resolution Hotel in Whitby for 1 night Bed & Breakfast & a 3 course dinner at The Vault Restaurant, part of the same hotel, on January 2nd 2014. We were a little early to check in, but reception were happy to look after our luggage until we returned after having a wander around Whitby.
Our room overlooked Silver Street, I think its called, & we were on the second floor. A fast lift was available to take you to ground level or the basement, where The Vault Restaurant could be found. We never had to wait long for the lift, even though the hotel was quite busy.There was also a staircase giving access to all floors. Our room had a large bathroom with toilet, bath & over bath shower, plus a wash hand basin. The suite was a little old fashioned, but very clean & it added to the experience.The bedroom was quite large(a standard double)& had a kettle & tea & coffee + 2 biscuit packs.There was an electric heater which you could either switch on or off, but if left on, it got quite hot. There was also a hair dryer, TV, & electric sockets.The bedding was clean & bed comfortable. I understand refurbishments are being done the rest of this month, January, to parts of the hotel.

Breakfast was served in the bar area on the ground floor & between 8am & 10am I think. The Full English was well presented & all choices you might expect were available. Service for the cooked part of breakfast, was prompt & staff well dressed & friendly.You helped yourself to the rest.

We sampled the nouveux cuisine in The Vault & found it excellent. I hope to write a separate review for this.

I had been to The Resolution before when it has been used for a venue for Folk Festival week, but had never stayed there until now. The hotel was generally clean & staff were very helpful & friendly. I would definitely stay there again given the chance.
Although parking near the hotel can be difficult, we found an all day spot on a street not too far away. This was free, but quite hard to find. I understand reception can direct you to a car park not too far away. Bare in mind, Whitby is built on hills, when deciding how much luggage to take!!If you have never been to Whitby, it is a gorgeous place & the tourist season seems to last all year round with Goth Festivals, Folk & Sailing events on, to name but a few.

Took advantage of a KGB Deal with friends for a mini break between Christmas and New Year. The staff were friendly, room good size and clean with good view over the town, shower was quite powerful and hot and after a windy and rainy walk round Whitby that was welcoming. Tea and coffee in the room was very substantial. Good choice at breakfast and not long to wait for it. Will stay again.

The Hotel is very clean and comfortable but what sets it apart are the Staff who really go the extra mile. Food in the Restaurant downstairs, called the Vault; is some of the best dishes i've tasted. I would recommend the Lamb, this place is really a well kept secret which I will expose to everyone, GREAT VALUE and EXCELLENT FOOD, not a combination i'm used to.

Room Tip: Clean and Tidy Have a meal in the Vault downstairs.

Had room on 2nd floor. Floors creaky. Sound of rushing water whenever an adjacent room flushed toilet. Herd of stampeding elephants in room above us. Needed earplugs to sleep. Breakfast quantity good, quality average. Staff very friendly. Nearly value for money but £50 a night would be about right.
