Unfortunately I am writing my first ever negative review but the events of our recent stay here warrant exactly that. We chose the White House and paid extra for room 8 for its advertised sea views. Although there were wonderful from the dining area, the opposite was true from our room, unless you were prepared to stand with your face...

Staff very friendly, we only stayed 1 night, but wouldn't hesitate to book for a longer break. The room was very nice and clean, warm and welcoming. Breakfast was lovely. The only negative for me was the bed, it creaked very loudly when you turned over (and I could hear next doors bed), it was a wooden one though !....

Stayed for 4 nights. The staff were fantastic. Food and drink was excellent. The bar staff in the evenings were great fun and made us so welcome. Room was perfect. It was worth paying a bit more for a balcony and a sea view. Would highly recommend.

I stayed in Whitby recently with a friend and we decided to walk up to the White House. If you have a hangover this walk can be rather bracing!. We were welcomed by the staff who were very engaging and well mannered. After a few pints we left but decided to return the next day for lunch. I chose the...

Visited for Sunday lunch with friends, had a wonderful table with an amazing view. The Sunday lunch was well cooked, a good selection of roasts but you don't have to have a traditional Sunday lunch. We didn't have room for dessert as there was so much food. The staff are lovely we will be going again.

This hotel is situated a mere (absolutely gorgeous) twenty minute into town. The hotel is situated on the edge of a golf course and virtually on the cliffs, providing for a magnificent all round vista. Bar and restaurant look good although I didnt try either.

We arrived just as the chef was about to leave. We said we wanted soup and a sandwich and so they went to check. The chef said it wasn't a problem and I am pleased it wasn't. The soup was lovely, served with croutons and a warm roll. The sandwich was also excellent. The bread was so fresh. The service...
