“Amazing little gem of a place, Immaculate, welcoming, and great food too!”
Reviewed 5 August 2010

We arrived home yesterday from 2 days stay at the Corra Lyn after booking by recommendations on this site and we were not disappointed. The price is £32.00 p/p per night and I paid £10.00 deposit for the room by cheque and a couple of days later, I was sent a receipt and a booklet which included excellent directions. They offer off road parking too which was great!! We were welcomed by Chris, the owner and promptly shown to our room which was no 5 at the top of the house. It was lovely with lots of little extras like tissues and cotton wool balls on the dressing table as well as magazines, a clock radio, hairdryer, free view t.v and even a mini fridge!! Everywhere was spotless and tastefully furnished. The bathroom was lovely too, again with consideration for making us feel very comfortable like a bath pillow and there was even a laundry basket!! The bath was free standing in the middle of the room but as the ceiling is sloping you just had to mind your head when you got out lol.
We were asked what we wanted for breakfast and there was an excellent choice from the full monty to local kippers!!
We soon unpacked and Chris told us the different ways to get in to town and lots about things to do and good places to visit.
Whilst we were there, we went on the open topped bus which was great value at £4.00 for adults and £3.00 for kids. You can use it all day and get on and off where you liked. We got it from the Coop near the railway station which is where it starts, went all around Whitby and got off at the Abbey. The guide was very funny and extremely informative. We also played crazy golf which is on the West cliff, it was £1.80 for 1 round which I thought was good value for money. We got a few hours on the beach and my son built 50 sandcastles! He wasn't bothered about going on the donkey's but I overheard someone saying that it was £3.00 which I thought was a tad expensive given that the ride lasted around 5 minutes.
We had fish and chips from the Magpie but as I refuse to queue for a place in any restaurant, we got them to takeaway and ate them over the road on a wall which was fine except we got pestered by seagulls!!! They were a bit over the top price wise at nearly £6.00 each but the batter was good, and they weren't greasy like some establishments I've been to in the past.
We also had a few drink around town but liked the Pier Inn the best as you could sit outside, relax and best of all.. people watch!!
We also ate at the Board Inn and although the view was good, the meal was a bit disappointing.. I had Cajun chicken and it tasted like a Birdseye one!!!
The breakfasts at the Corra Lyn lived up to the reputation they have gained on here.. Bruce truly is a very good chef. He even uses a cutter for the fried bread to make it in to novelty shapes! Everything was perfectly cooked and the service was first class.
We left on Wednesday morning and one of the guests had pointed out that the rubber trim on the front of my car was hanging down a little.. Without asking Bruce produced some gaffer tape and promptly temporarily repaired it for my journey room.
I wouldn't hesitate in staying there again and would thoroughly recommend it to all my friends and family for their future visits to Whitby.

We stayed 3 nights - our first visit to Whtby. The Corra Lyn was first class quality and value, with the rooms most comfortable and with an excellent choice for breakfast which was well cooked and presented. Only a short down hill walk into the centre of Whitby, where you pass 2 restaurants facing each other that I would highly recommend - one Italian and the other called 'Dittos'. For another night we enjoyed one of the several high quality fish and chip restaurants.
We enjoyed the open top bus ride, and spent a good couple of hours around the Abbey and church. Not keen on Scarborough but Robin Hoods Bay was ver picturesque.

We and our friends have been staying at Corra Lynn for several years now and wouldnt contemplate staying anywhere else in Whitby. Chris and Bruce are a lovely couple and nothing is too much trouble for them and they are so friendly. The rooms are very well decorated and spotlessly clean, there is coffee/tea facilities along with a small fridge which is handy. The food is excellent, Bruce's full english is a great start to the day and not heavy on grease like a lot of breakfasts are, his cheese omlette is a joy. all in all you would have to look hard to find anywhere better in a B&B.

Fantastic breakfasts, clean comfortable rooms and friendly accommodating service. We booked this at the last minute after trying to book at The White Horse & Griffin - we wanted one night but they would only sell rooms in blocks of two.
This is a great B&B five minutes walk from the main attractions of Whitby. We'll definitely be staying here again.

We have been staying at the Corra Lynn for the last few years and always stay here when we visit Whitby. The greeting you receive when you walk through the door is always very welcoming. The rooms are very cosy and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is fantastic, everything available from the Full Monty (which I can highly recommend - it is a filler!) to egg on toast if you aren't that hungry. The hotel is ideally situated. It is on the west cliff side of Whitby and is walking distance into town. There are parking spaces outside the hotel, so no struggling to find a spot. We have stayed in other hotels in Whitby but the Corra Lynn is the one we always go back to - been 9 times so far!!!!!!

Stayed again for two nights and just can't speak too highly of this lovely B&B. Proprieters Chris and Bruce can't do enough for you without being intrusive. They are so friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. So much attention to detail has been put in all aspects of the accomodation you won't want for anything. The rooms are beautifull so bright and cheerfull and well equiped. The dinning room is lovely and what about Bruce's breakfast you won't beat it let me tell you. This was our second visit at this little Gem and have booked again for next year. If it's a Quality B&B your after in Whitby you won't do wrong here take it from me.
