I have recently returned from a 2 night stay in one of the 3 bed attic rooms at the George Hotel. Check in was quick and painless, the trek to our room was not. Although I suffer from arthritis, I consider myself fit and healthy at 60, indeed within the last year have climbed several mountains in our beautiful Lake District. The stairs to our room nearly had me beat. If you have mobility issues then book a lower floor.
There were a couple of issues with the room but as I didn't feel strongly enough about them to complain at the time, then it would not be fair to mention them in this review. My main gripe is with fellow guests.
We had a wonderful day in Scarborough fishing, playing on the beach followed by a swim at the local baths. Returning to Whitby the boys went fishing and crabbing.
I returned to the hotel for a shower. The shower door does not close properly. The previous user had not taken heed of the warning sign on the wall and had pointed the shower head towards the shower door flooding the bathroom. They had also left the loo in a disgusting state.
Feeling tired after a very busy day we went to bed around 10.30. We were woken at one in the morning by two drunken couples staying on different floors talking loudly and shouting goodnight to each other. This went on for quite some time followed by the couple on our floor going backwards and forwards to the bathroom shouting and slamming doors. Worse was to come in the morning when I went to the bathroom where I found blood?/sick? around the base of the toilet.
Fellow guests, please show some respect for others and have some dignity. Retire to you room quietly and if you make a mess in a shared area have the decency to clean it up.
We did have an amazing time, love Whitby and can't wait to go back. Great day in Scarborough, calling in at York on the way home fantastic.
