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

We recently stayed in Whitby for the Regatta and had a lovely weekend. Having previously stayed at the Holmleigh Guesthouse we didn't hesitate to book again for our return. The rooms are a lovely size, all en-suite and maintained to a very high standard. The Guesthouse is extremely clean and the sheets are crisp & white! Tea/Coffee making facilities, hairdryer, TV & DVD Player, towels and basic toiletries are all provided. All rooms are non-smoking.

Kev & Carol are excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for you.

The full English breakfast is lovely and keeps you going well into the afternoon - although lighter options are available!!! There is plenty to see & do in Whitby and the Guesthouse has a good stock of leaflets etc.

It is in a really good location and offers off-street car parking which, in Whitby, is a huge bonus! It is only about a 5 minute walk down to the main shopping area and the harbour - but it is quite a steep hill. Lots of bars and restaurants to choose from on both sides of the bridge. There is also a golf club close by and you can get a discount for it through the guesthouse.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends & family.

Carol & Kevin are perfect hosts and provide the ideal place to stay in Whitby. They are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The service they provide is excellent in all aspects. Holmleigh is spotless and very comfortable, has off-road parking, is within easy walking distance from the town and is a place we will certainly stay again.

Carol and Kev are two wonderful Holmleigh (homely) people. Their dog even greets you at the door with a smile!. We stayed for four days and had a good time. we were told by Carol and Kev, all the places to visit and the best deals around for eating out. Their breakfasts are great and nothing was too much trouble for them. also we had the added benefit of off street car parking on the site. we will definately be returning and definately to Carol and Kev.

Holmleigh is a really nice B&B. Our room was lovely, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was huge, and the owners, Carol and Kev, make you feel very welcome. We'll be back!
