“Very good little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2008

My husband and I visited Whitby in March of this year taking our little girl with us. We normally stay at the Sandbeck hotel next door, but they have recently changed their hotel policies, and now no longer accept young children under the age of 5. We were very disappointed because of this, so we decided to try the New Anchorage as we had always admired the hotel on our previous trips to Whitby.

In the end we were very glad that the Sandbeck had changed its rules! Otherwise we might never have booked this lovely hotel. We had a wonderful weekend celebrating my Husband's birthday. We booked a family room which was excellent, very spacious indeed, consisting of a double and single bed and also a seperate little seating area. It was very nicely decorated and it also had a tv and video with a selection of films etc.. available to watch.

The manager of the hotel was very friendly, and we had no problems regarding service or anything else while we were there. The breakfast was very nice indeed, served in a lovely dining area overlooking the sea.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends, family etc. And I very much look forward to maybe staying there again with my family, sometime in the future.

  • Liked — Good location, lovely room!
  • Disliked — (Small complaint!) Tv on when having breakfast. Ok when it was the news, not so good when it was Jeremy Kyle! : )

The New Anchorage is on the West Cliff ,overlooking the sea,and the harbour ,which is stunning,its Family Owned and run ,which means when you ring to book ,you know you will be dealt with by one of theOwners ,a lovely full english breakfast will be made by one of the owners ,your room will be spotless and clean ready for you ,some ones always there to meet you ,to give you directions,or just have a chat ,this cannot be said for going to a big hotel ,where you,d have different staff all the time .
When you arrive at the New Anchorage ,you feel relaxed and comfortable straight away . we,ve stayed there many times ,and will many more times ,and would highly recommend it to anyone .Alan Kingston

Just returned from Whitby where we stayed at the New Anchorage Hotel. The owners were very welcoming, the room was extremely clean, as was the rest of the hotel and the breakfasts were fantastic. Spoke to several residents who had stayed previously and like them if we return to Whitby would definitely chose the New Anchorage.

  • Liked — cleanliness and food
  • Disliked — too many stairs

The New Anchorage overlooks the sea above Whitby. It is less than a 10 minutes stroll down to the town centre, past the Cook Statue and Whale arch. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the generous, full English breakfast will set you up for the day ! It is ideally placed for visiting the town but remember Whitby has steep hills and steps leading up from the harbour in both directions. Can also recommend the Magpie Cafe for fish meals - don't be put off by the normal waiting time, its well worth it.

  • Liked — Close to the town centre but away from the noise and bustle
  • Disliked — The hotel does have many flights of stairs which will not suit elderly or disabled people.
  • Tips/Secrets — Front rooms have great views over the sea.
