Adequate but not great value for money

Booked a TWIN room,but on arrival ( bit early to drop my case,but no one at guest house,and mobile not answered) it was a double with a single bed that was appalling.

My travelling companion couldn't sleep in it ,suitable for a child only. Room very clean,but basic. Nice en suite. We were at the top of the house and the stairs are a killer, try to get a lower floor if you can.

Breakfast was excellent,couldn't fault it.

A room wth a view

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we specifically wanted the Abbey View Room.

The room was small but very clean and tidy and certainly was adequate for what we required. Tamsin was a fantastic hostess and cooked an excellent breakfast. We will definitely be returning.

Cheap & Cheerful

If all you want is a bed for the night ok however if you want the highest possible level of comfort, with lots of freebies, guest lounge, fluffy towels, sea views, local guides etc you have to look elsewhere - you get a fair deal here, with no frills.

Breakfast was ok but not the best, bacon was tough one day, overcooked and hard the next, (Held hot) egg not the freshest one morning, dining room chilly, not the most inviting, with large uncurtained windows which added to the 'fresh' atmosphere. Found we were allocated a top floor room (Up 50 steps - 3 floors) not suitable for many, Owner did offer a lower room but not en suite. Space in the accommodation was obviously at a premium, so reception and payment of bills etc was conducted in the entrance corridor, not the most inviting. Perhaps the most disappointing was the parking problems in the general area, what it must be like 'In Season' doesn't bear thinking about. However, compensating, the host was very friendly and helpful.

Warm host - good B&B

On arrival Tamsin was welcoming.

Our room was clean and the bed was Comfy. Our only gripe, and a minor one at that, was that breakfast finished at 9am. The full English was OK, but not spectacular. But for £35 each wasnt bad value for money .

The Beaches Guest House

Room was quite small and a bit shabby.

e.g battered lamp shades and door missing from wardrobe.

Pleasant stay

We arrived at Beaches and we were greeted with a warm welcome by Tamsin who chatted to us about our stay and car parking facilities in the area.

We were offered a pass to enable us to park on the street however we didn't need it as had parked in car park nearby. Tamsin explained that she had had a cancellation and offered us another room with ensuite and sea view (room 7) for a small upgrade. The room was cosy and clean, the view was of the Abby and the village itself with a sea view in the distance. There was a TV in the room however it was quite small and ideally needed to be closer to the bed as we struggled to view it however we didn't come to Whitby to watch TV so wasn't a major problem. The shower took a while to warm up before it could be used. Breakfast was served between 0815 and 0900 and although the girl serving the breakfast was friendly and it was lovely we felt it was too early.

Checkout was at 1000 but we had to leave for 0900 as the car ticket had run out, on leaving and paying the bill (cash only no card payments) Tamsin asked what our plans were, we liked how friendly she was and would much prefer someone who was like this than someone who wouldn't acknowledge us so we disagree with other reviewers who feel she was 'too much'. All in all we enjoyed our time at the guest house, the only negatives were the small TV, shower taking a while to get warm (don't stand in it straight away!) and breakfast served too early.
