The George Hotel was ideal for us arriving in Whitby by train, and the bar staff kindly took in our luggage when we arrived a couple of hours before check-in. The bars have an amazing variety of entertainments (and very attractively-priced beers and wines, too, including several real ales) for those who want them, but a "residents' door" off Baxtergate means that we did not have to go through these areas when we did not wish to. Our room on the second floor was not disturbed by sound from the bars, even on karaoke night, but noise from one man on the street was a bit of a problem on one night - but that is life in the town centre.
Our booking included a light breakfast which was fine for us but an extra £5 each would have bought us the full English if we'd wanted it. It was unfortunate that one had to pass through the morning cleaning of the bar area to get to breakfast but it is hard to see how this could be avoided in a building like this.
The en-suite room was excellent: on the small side but with almost everything we needed and obviously fairly recently refurbished. No coat hooks near the door was the only thing that marred it: I was tempted to nip into the hardware store next door and fit some myself! If it had rained I don't know where we'd have hung our macs. TV did not work the first evening and we discovered that too late to bother getting it fixed, but mentioned it at breakfast and it was OK when we returned from our day out for the second evening. Huge bath towels, soap and shampoo provided.
