We stayed here four years ago with a relative from Australia, so had no hesitation in returning to 17 Burgate. This year, it was friends from Australia who were travelling with us on their first visit to the UK. We were certainly not disappointed! William & Pat were just as welcoming, the rooms and breakfast just as good, and our friends could not believe the quality of the accommodation for the price they paid. We'll be back next year with more Aussie relatives!

Thanks very much and G'day to our colonial cousins. Hope the trip to Paris went well and the winnings from York Races were well spent. Glad I didn't follow the Ascot tip!!!!!!
Look forward to your next visit.

We spent the first night of our mini-break in Whitby and although a lovely hotel we soon realised that after checking into no.17 we should have booked there for the two night duration. Walking from the car-park into the back entrance is like stepping into a tranquil oasis. The owner greeted us, checked us in and made us feel very welcome by bringing us refreshments and cakes into the very sunny garden. Nothing was too much trouble- he even popped next door to the tapas restaurant to check that they would have room for us that evening. Our room was spotless, beautifully decorated and full of everyday essentials (from trouser press to cotton-wool).
It is in the very heart of Pickering so every amenity is close by even the steam railway is two minutes walk away.
It is like a very excellent home from home with a good bar and excellent breakfast service
Nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely be back and will recommend to all my friends and work mates.

Spent 2 nights at 17 and couldn't fault anything. You're made very welcome from the moment of arrival. The room my wife and I stayed in was very well decorated and to a very high standard. Bar/lounge area was very relaxing and the owners operate a honesty bar policy. We were given as much local information as we asked for and was much appreciated. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again if in the area. You won't be disappointed.

Arriving at 17 Burgate from the back the first thing you get to see is the great garden, very tidy and well kept and this continues through the house.

We were given a great welcome, were shown to our rooms and then invited down for tea & cake which was a great touch and very tasty.

The decoration throughout the house is immaculate and our room (Studio, room 16) was far nicer than we were expecting. Everything you would want is within the room and plenty of small things that we were not expecting that really help make it a little more special.

The hosts were very welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and gave us some excellent recommendations for eating out.

Breakfast was good, although personally I only had porridge (which was spot on) the choice was good and my partner had a cooked breakfast which looked great.

All in all an excellent place to stay and we would most certainly recommend it to anyone. We will certainly be back next year and we are already looking forward to it.

We stayed at 17 Burgate for one night last Friday. The house itself is lovely with plenty of parking to the rear. We were in the suite, which was absolutely lovely. The decor throughout the house gives it so much character and it is spotlessly clean. Even the small details down to the soap and shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom was 5 star. The bed itself was massive and extremely comfortable, the room was quite warm, but we like it cold to sleep so we just opened the windows, there was no traffic noise to keep us awake. The hosts were lovely and breakfast the next morning was delicious, we modified some of the breakfast menu to suite our tastes and they were happy to oblidge. If we were coming back to Pickering we would definately stay there again. It is literally 1 minute walk to the centre of the town too. I would recommend 17 Burgate to anyone.
