Holmleigh Guest House
Ranked #117 of 152 Whitby B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2013

My partner and I stayed at Holmleigh Guest House for two nights and we were both really impressed. Kevin and Carol gave us a really warm welcome and Kevin even carried our bags up to our room which was a really nice touch. We stayed in Room 5 at the top of the house which was very comfortable and had everything we needed. A nice comfy bed and a well stocked tea and coffee tray with biscuits. The room was very clean and really couldn't be faulted.
Breakfast was fantastic, a good selection of cereals, fruit and full English were all on offer. As we are not really big breakfast people we opted for a bacon sandwich which was probably one of the best we've ever had and all served with a smile.
The guest house is located close to the town centre, just a short 5-10 minute walk and free parking for every room which is ideal. If you are looking for a friendly, comfortable place to stay with great breakfasts then the Holmleigh guest house is for you. We would definitely recommend it and will be returning next time we visit Whitby. Thanks to Kevin and Carol for a great stay.

We arrived in Whitby a little later than expected on a Friday evening however this didn't stop Kev giving us a very warm and friendly welcome. Our rooms were comfortable, spotless and homely.
The breakfast room is light and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.
Nothing seemed to be any trouble.
A great place to stay.
Holmleigh is a shot walk fro the town centre and the private parking was just brilliant.

Room Tip: We had room two. It was at the back of the house and catches the morning sunshine.

We decided on a two day trip to Whitby to see family and have a break. We found Holmleigh on the internet and contacted Kevin and Carol the day before we came. We were so pleased to find this gem. The hosts were lovely and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were lovely and clean and everything we could hope for. After a day walking around sight seeing, we ralaxed back in our room and had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was faultless and we could have easily stayed for longer. We definately will be back

Really enjoyed my stay here due to spotless rooms, good food and nice hosts. It also has safe parking for motorbikes. Its a short walk into the town and easy to find on arrival. Will definately be staying again and would recommend it for anyone.

We have just returned from our third visit to the Holmleigh and are already planning for next year. Kevin and Carol are a lovely couple who cannot do enough for you. The rooms are spotless, very comfortable and spacious.

The delights of Whitby are just a short walk away down the hill, with plenty of good places to eat.

Room Tip: There is nothing to choose between the room as they are of the same standard.

Kev and Carol at Holmleigh are the nicest hosts you could ask for. Kev is such a character, and Carol serves up the best breakfast that keeps you going until dinner time.
Clean, spacious room, off street parking, ideal location - pleasand walk to restuarants, Magpie Cafe, the harbour and the whale bones etc..
Highly recommended.
