We have stayed in both the apartment and the garden room and cannot rate this lovely little place, its warm and hospitable owners and the whole experience highly enough. Just booked up for our wedding anniversary- spent last year's in New York and am equally excited about our stay at the adorable White Owl

Well situated for RHB attractions and a nice 'side' view of the sea from front window of the Garden View Apartment.
Comfy bed (but bear in mind that two sides are up against a wall, in a corner; so one person has to skootch to the end of the bed to get out).
The host was lovely too, which always helps.
Parking provided but 'tight' for a mid size car (if parked next to another 'mid sized' car).
I wouldn't buy the breakfast again as it was not good (for example, the orange juice was poor - smelled of petrol (?) and tasted odd).
The decor is cluttered & "old fashioned" with lots of 'bird themed' ornaments/plates/pictures etc (reminded me of my great aunts front lounge in the 1970s - which was 'sweet' at first, but not ideal as guest house accommodation really...not for us anyway)

(As this is apparently predominantly sold as self catering - bring your own loo roll! They supplied a mostly empty roll to start you off but did not replenish for rest of stay)

This review is starting to sound like I didn't enjoy the stay, which is wrong. It was mostly fine - just a few niggles along the way which unfortunately made it less than perfect.

Room Tip: With the Garden View apartment (ground floor at front) - you get a side view of the coastline and be...

We stayed in the self-catering room.The host was lovely, we could park and it was ideally located to walk down to the village. We felt very at home here and it was great value for money.

We had always wanted to visit Robin Hood's Bay and found The White Owl on the internet - and what a find! Ideally situated B&B with good parking facilities and a very friendly host (thanks Ann). Wonderful views from the room down to the sea, the 'village' and beyond. Delicious breakfasts brought to you on a tray for you to enjoy in the comfort or your own room. Lovely front garden where we sat with our coffee playing Scrabble as the sun set. Three perfect days and even our dog was made welcome. We shall return!

Me and my family , myself , the wife and two boys have stayed at the white Owl every August for our weeks summer break since 2009 , also we stay there when myself and the wife have our own little break together in May each year , and we can fully recommend the place ,Anne is friendly and a great host and always willing to accomodate any need you require, The White Owl is situated at the top of the Hill and has its own parking bays for guests,which is a must and saves the trouble trying to gain a space in the car park everytime you go out on a day out that requires car travel, which we found a tiresome task when we stayed in a cottage further down the hill,and also the White Owl has a very cosy self contained apartments which is ideal for a couple , or if you have a family , the lardger apartment is ideal ,The local tennis courts kept the kids amused late in the summer evening , which we deposit a goodwill donation at the end of the weeks stay ,, Altogether if you have a family or just a couple wanting to stay for a long weekend or a week , Stay at the White Owl and experience a great break like we have and always will do for yrs to come

We have stayed at The White Owl for the last 3 years and find it by far the best value for money in the bay. The Apartment is very comfortable, clean and has everything you could need inside, including lots of brochures and ideas of where to visit while you are there. Mrs Higgins is a very friendly and helpful host and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. There is also a parking space provided which is essential if you are staying in the bay. We will certainly be back again next year.

Room Tip: Bay View Apartments have large bedrooms and lovely views

The White Owl in the beautiful Coastal town of Robin Hood's Bay was recommended to me by a family member who has been visiting for many years.

I chose to stay bed and breakfast - the room was clean and tidy and was reminicent of a smugglers hide away in keeping with the atmosphere of the bay.

The beautiful garden at the front of the White Owl with a view of the bay made for an excellent venue for sitting out and watching the sun go down. Anne keeps a supply of warm fleeces in the front porch which she is happy for you to borrow when the wind gets up and you're only in short sleeves.

I had a vegetarian breakfast which was delicious.

Anne and David are the perfect hosts and I am sure that I will be visiting them again.
