We arrived earlier than the 2pm checkin and received a warm welcome from Christine and Howard. Haven Crest is spotlessly clean and well looked after. The breakfast menu offers a very good choice of options and was freshly cooked when you turned up. There is a lot of information available about the area: attractions, tide tables, bus timetables, parking discs etc. There is off street parking here and that is where we left our car for our 4 night stay. The West Cliff promenade and walks are nearby and it is an easy 15 minute walk into Whitby (passing Whitby Pavilion). Going in the opposite direction it is an easy walk to Sandsend or around 6 miles to Runswick Bay (on the Cleveland Way). The bus stop is a short walk from the guest house going up the coast or into Whitby. We ate out in Whitby each evening and if you don't want to walk back the taxi fare is £5. However, there is a pub across the road for those who don't want to go into town. We really enjoyed our stay here and Christine and Howard are the most charming if hosts who were very helpful and we chatted about many things.
