Two friends and I stayed here for one night and I throughly enjoyed myself! We had 2 rooms, each with its own bathroom (they were down the corridor but that didn't bother me, it was nice to have one for each specific room). We stayed in the Green Man Room and the Dracula Room. The Green Man Room had a...

We stayed at the Bats and Broomsticks in July 2016 and had a frightfully good time. It’s something different and we loved it. Kev was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. He gave us advice on some of the best places to go in Whitby which was just a 10 minute walk down the road to the centre...

The owner was lovely and made us feel very welcome. It's just a short stroll from whitby centre so ideal to walk off the couple of alcoholic beverages we consumed in...

Stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed our time here. The best part was the breakfast which was cooked to order and had brilliant portion sizes and best of all catered for my vegitarian daughter. Really different place and a very relaxed atmosphere.

We loved Bat's and Broomsticks, really comfy bed, good pillows.(Green man room) everything you could need in it. Lots of quirky touches made it a fun and different place to stay. Lovely hosts. Bathrooms are separate to rooms, but are private to your room. No showers, just baths with a shower attachment. Everything clean. Big hearty breakfast, cool music. Would...
