“good short break venue”
Reviewed 29 April 2011

stayed here for two nights and found this a good place to stay,good location 5 minute walk into whitby although hotel is top of a small hill so maybe not ideal for not so fit,but was fine for us.The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to make you feel at home.Our room was a typical english b and b room with a small en suite with shower [good powerful shower], the room was spotless with crisp white sheets. The full english breakfast was huge with fresh fruit to start and offers of refills of tea and coffee.All in all a good place to stay and Whitby is a lovely fishing village,very quaint,and with lots of pubs [if you like that sort of thing].

My wife and I found this on the internet and visited their site prior to booking. We booked a 3 night stay after reading reviews, but most importantly, speaking to the owners. There are few words which can describe this B&B. One of these is 'excellent'. If you want to stay in a friendly, clean guesthouse, look no further. The Holmleigh gives you everything. It is spotless. The room we stayed in demands a 10/10 for being just what we are used to. A1*****B&B.
The breakfast is superb (I have a big appetite and my wife is a top cook) and their breakfast is, to echo other people staying there the same time as us ' what we call a breakfast'. Carol obviously takes great care to ensure here guests are fed with good well cooked food. To be honest, on two of the mornings, I needed to ask for less than they were offering. Kev goes out of his way to ensure that everyone sharing their home feels welcome,well serviced and fed.
Added to this, if you like to have interesting conversations regarding sport, just talk to Kev. This mountain of a man is an ex- Rugby League player (Featherstone and Castleford no less!!!!) and the tales he can tell kept me, personally, rivetted.
Anytime we are in Whitby, this is the place we will choose.Highly recommended.

Went for the weekend at the end of September and couldn't fault it! Kev & Carol were brilliant, they gave us a warm and friendly welcome as did Rosie the dog! The rooms were great; warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great, when I saw the size of the plates I opted for a small full english and even that took some finishing! Myself and hubby and the friends we went with will definitely be returning.

Stayed for 2 nights during the Whitby Regatta and Folk Week! Kevin and Carol were very accommodating and friendly. We had a great big room at the top of the house, which was very clean and offered everything we needed, the water pressure out the shower was a little slow but we weren't in any rush! Breakfast in the morning was great with as much as we wanted and the option of fresh fruit was a winner for me. Parking was small, but off road and we had no problem moving the car when we wanted to go out. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A great experience all round, from the friendly welcome to the continued high levels of service throughout our stay. The room was lovely and spotless, the breakfast was well cooked and pleasantly served. I would recommend Holmleigh to anyone.

Stayed for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend. Kev & Carol (and Rosie the dog) were very welcoming. Our room was well maintained and immaculately clean and very spacious with bay window, traditional fireplace and sofa as well as the usual amenities.
The main appeal for us of Holmleigh was the guaranted parking space for each room which takes away the worry of getting parked nearby and lets you enjoy strolling into the town centre (10 mins walk downhill). Whilst being situated on one of the main roads into Whiby, we had no problems with traffic noise overnight.

Breakfast was lovely, traditional b&b fayre.

Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who wants a friendly, comfortable, conveniently located base for exploring Whitby and the nearby area.

Stayed for two nights in February - made to feel very welcome by the owners who were friendly and helpful. Room was lovely with a very comfortable bed and lots of room. Not too far from the town centre with a car park which was helpful. Short walk down the hill is a little bit of a pain on the way home but that's because we are so unfit! Breakfast both days was fabulous with top up of tea and toast as required. Perfect place for us to stay for our weekend and if we return to Whitby we would definitely stay. Would have given it 5 out of 5 if the shower had been more powerful but maybe we' are picky! Very nice place to stop..recommended
