We have been visiting this guest house for 16 - 17 years now as we love Whitby and have always liked Khyber mount. It has always been lovely and clean and the breakfasts have been excellent. However...... Last year we stayed there and left feeling really disappointed as it was far from the Khyber Mount that we had known from the past. We thought that maybe the 'newish' owners were finding their feet and that it would improve? .......How wrong were we? We have just stayed again for the last time EVER unless a new management take over! I have never before felt as though I couldn't sleep for feeling like i was crawling with God only knows what! We were given 2 double rooms, rooms 4 and 5. My girls shared one and my husband and I had the other. After 2 mins of first seeing the rooms I had regrets. I had to ask for a clean pillow case on our bed as the one that was on was filthy. The carpet was so dirty it was sticky. The headboard on the bed was stained , big yellow stains, and the curtains were stiff they were so dirty, not to mention ill fitting! even the wallpaper was disgusting, with dirty big marks all over. The management provide sachets of coffee and milk and a kettle, so at the end of the night I decided to have a coffe whilst watching the latter part of the olympic opening ceromony.......not! The kettle can only be described as a health hazard. Inside, it was dark brown stained and just full of limescale, needless to say that a hot drink was out of the question. So, about the TV that we tried to watch...not happening! It is an old, small ancient TV that does not work through lack of a proper ariel. No proper picture. only static. From arriving at the guest house I flung the window open to try and rid the room of the stale air and freshen it up . . . .and then onto my girls' room, no.4, Well .... a copy of our room only with the added smell of a mattress that has been wet (urine wet) and not fully washed and aired...disgusting. We did try and get another b+b near by but had no luck. Now the bathroom, the one on the ground floor. The soap dispener grew its own form of penicillin I think! There was a thick rim of brown, gungy looking jelly like substance around the nozzle. But, better than that, the toilet actually rocked from side to side....It wasn't even fastened to the floor properly, hence the stained CARPET around the toilet!! On the second night, I had to cover the sheeets with my dressing gown and cover the pillows with my husbands t shirts, just so I could lessen the anxiety of my lying in this bed.... It was either that or all 4 of us go and sleep in the car. And breakfast, oh the breakfast, well I'm not even going there, just read other reviews! This cost £218 for 2 nights, and they ask for payment on arrival. I wonder why??? Please heed this warning......It's bad.
