“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I visited the Arches with a friend to celebrate my friend's birthday. We each stayed in a single room with private bathrooms. On arrival Laura made us a pot of tea with biscuits and they both gave us excellent advice on where to eat. I recommend The Humble Pie! The rooms weren't too small, nicely decorated and the Egyptian cotton sheets were lovely! Breakfast the next morning was delicious. I started with a very fresh fruit salad and then I had the smoked option full English which was very tasty. Dave came in with a muffin with lit candles in for my friend. (I had arranged this in advance!) Dave and Laura were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We will definitely stay at The Arches next time we visit Whitby!

Travelled and stayed in many places over the years and for B&B its very difficult to beat the Arches. Laura & Dave just get the basics right - they are friendly hosts, the place is spotlessly clean, its quiet at night, serve a tasty breakfast, and provide packed lunch on request (and fill a flask if you ask nicely) - sets you up to enjoy the day - we split time between finding some nice ammonite specimens along the coast (keep your eye on the tides), browsing around town, and enjoying dinner (fish & chips of course). Great few days for the family. Many thanks.

Just returned from a short break to The Arches - it just gets better! Refurbishments have been carried out to most of the rooms which are lovely & a recent 'Breakfast Award'is richly deserved.
Laura & Dave are perfect hosts & all seems effortless.
Will be back soon.

Room Tip: Room 6 has nice small seated area with view of street (1st floor)
