“One night stopover.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2012

Very nice room with a great breakfast.
An attentive couple who went the extra mile and ensured my stay was as good as any I've had in a B&B.
The room was clean and I had a huge bed. Nice to have biscuits with my tea and coffee too. Highly recommended.

We have just returned from two nights in Room 4 (de-luxe room) and were so impressed with this guest house.
The room had a lovely large bed, a leather settee to sit on and watch TV, a very good hospitality tray, wine glasses and bottle opener for the bottle of wine we bought from the nearby off-licence, lovely white bath robes, a beautiful shower room with power shower and his and hers sinks, good sized and quality towels, handwash, shower gel/shampoo, face cloths all provided and even facial wipes to remove my make-up on an evening. Everything was so clean and fresh, a real pleasure to be there.
This quality continued in the breakfast room, everything spick and span even down to proper napkins for breakfast, no paper ones here. The breakfasts were beautifully cooked and presented and as much or as little as you wished, nothing was too much trouble, with cereal, fruit, yoghurt and fruit juice to start with.
The whole guest house was of good quality throughout, with nice thick carpet on the stairs, and even small dishes of sweets on various landings to help yourself to, such a lot of thought seemed to have gone into everything.
Yes if you are less mobile you need a lower floor, and even though the parking on the street is free and unlimited you are lucky to get a place, we had to park on the next street, but these are the only downsides, all in all a lovely place to spend a few days and near to all the attractions Whitby has to offer.

Room Tip: Room No. 4 is at the front, de-luxe room with beautiful shower room but quite a few stairs to climb...

Really enjoyed our two night stay at High Tor. Room was well decorated in a contemporary style. Very comfortable bed & spacious room with good storage and sitting areas. Lovely spotless ensuite with plenty of hot water. Good hospitality tray including wine glasses & corkscrew. The breakfast was excellent, good food & lovely laid table. Tina & Alan made us feel very welcome. Would certainly stay here again next time we are in Whitby.

We stayed three nights, and our friends one and two nights at High Tor. Most impressed with the accommodation - beautifully clean and comfortable and individually decorated with style. Breakfast room was terrific, so light and airy, with a friendly vibe, helped by the marvellous hospitality of Tina and Alan, who really went the extra mile to ensure that breakfasts were exactly what we wanted. They also provided great background information about Whitby and nothing was too much trouble. We noticed that others in the breakfast room were similarly impressed with the standard of accommodation and service. A really pleasant, relaxed and comfortable stay. Well done Tina and Alan - we'll be back and also many of our friends from UK and Australia.

We have just returned from two nights in Whitby staying at High Tor, we went with friends and were all highly delighted with High Tor, from booking to leaving a well run efficient B&B, a warm friendly greeting from Tina and Alan, very chatty and informative, our rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated as were all the public areas, breakfast was piping hot, plentiful and just what we needed to set us up for exploring Whitby. A great B&B will definately be back

Faultless. My wife and I stayed in the High Tor for 4 days and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
Lovely breakfast and the whole place is spotlessly clean. We would definitely stay at the High Tor again. And the fish and chips in Whitby!! World Famous.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have a lot of stairs.
