Stayed overnight one night for B&B - they serve breakfast in your room - so fine dining in PJ's! (though you can self cater if you want, fridge, cooker, kettle etc available). Dog settled well overnight. Positioned at the top of the hill into the "old village" is is a fine stroll to Wainwright's Bar, (and mountain climb back) and easy access to coastal walks. Nearby Open-All-Hours has post office for getting cash (White Owl do not take plastic cash only), where the PO can be opened almost anytime the shop is open.

Loved this place.

Room Tip: You can only pay by cash. The Post office 2 doors up act as Cashpoint, open long hours (and as we f...

This was our second visit to the white owl, the first being in a large self catering apartment, which had everything you could wish for, but as it was booked , we chose a smaller room, which was vey nice but dontfeel it was really a self catering apartment as the only facilities were a microwave, and had to wash any pots in bathroom sink. We are quite resiliant so were not induly worried, but couldprobably havedon e with a toaster and some cooking untensils andbowls. On saying that tho anne was very helpful and I dont doubt she would have been willing to help if we had asked, but shouldnt really have to ask for basic self catering u tensils, if it is meant for that , would reccommend for a nice bed and breakfast

Many thanks for your recent review and sorry not to have responded before now, due to a busy season! As you say, you were very happy in one of our self-catering apartments earlier in the year with everything you needed. As both the larger apartments were booked for your return weekend visit, we offered you our Garden Room. We do not promote this as a self-catering unit but as our Bed & Breakfast room where breakfast can be served to you at an arranged time. However, we have provided a small fridge and a microwave for people wishing to take the room without breakfast and thus enabling them to make light snacks and keep milk & yoghourt etc. in the fridge should they wish to do so. A small amount of cutlery and crockery is provided in the cupboard and I am more than happy to provide more should it be required but would stress once again that we do not promote this unit as a self-catering apartment. Look forward to seeing you again if you decide to book either our Balcony Apartment or Bay View Apartments with full self-catering facilities. In the meantime, all good wishes to you and your husband. With Kind Regards - Ann H

We stayed here in May for 2 nights for my birthday. We had booked earlier in the year and had booked the Seafarers Apartment but when we arrived Anne let us look at the Garden Room and pick our favourite. As we had our dog with us we chose the Garden Room as it had a bit more room. The White Owl is gorgeous!! Our room looked over the front garden which is full of lovely pots and plants, complete with a dovecote and a summer house!! We had a cup of coffee sat in the summerhouse with a view of the sea, it was lovely. Anne was so helpful, even going to look for a dog lead as we had forgotten ours. I couldn't recommend the White Owl highly enough and will definitely stay here in future when we visit again. Thanks Anne :)

Just got back from staying at the White Owl, the whole family had a great time, the apartment has everything you need and is really nice and Ann was really helpful. Robin Hoods Bay itself is a lovely village and we definitely hope to return to the White Owl soon.

I've been to the White Owl many times and it is just spectacular! The owners are very friendly and hospitable.The location is just brilliant as well, only a few minutes walk from the sea and many pubs near by :) Also very close to the local shop, only a few second walk up the road. The food is amazing. The front garden (when you walk in) has a little Summer Shed which is perfect for relaxing in the sun, and soaking up the brilliant scenery. It makes a nice change from Bangladesh. The room I stayed in had all the things needed for a BRILL stay, so definitely going back again!

Me and my wife have just come back from robinhoods bay and had a fantastic stay at the white owl, we stayed in the balcony room and it was clean and comfortable and had all we needed, it was the best self catering apartment we have stayed in and we both recommend a stay there. Thanks david see you again, mr frost.

Impromptu visit to RHB and were lucky enough to get the seafarers apartment with a parking space. The room was quirky and romantic and the host Ann was very friendly and provided excellent service with breakfast cereals served the room and 10 minutes later served with a full English breakfast with a rack of toast and selection of jams. We enjoyed the place so much we booked the same room and the garden room next door for August. Look forward to seeing you again Ann and thank you for your hospitality and warm welcome.
