Reviews - The Captain Cook Inn

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
The Captain Cook Inn, 60 Staithes Lane, , Staithes, TS13 5AD
The Captain Cook Inn was built in 1883 to serve as the Station Hotel in the village of Staithes. Unfortunately both the train line and the impressive viaduct connecting Cowbar to Staithes no longer exist, however the Station Hotel still remains in the guise of The Captain Cook Inn. Staithes is a beautiful pictureque fishing village nestled between some of the highest cliffs on the east coast. Visitors can comb the beach and rockpools for hidden treasures and sea creatures, there are many walks to be enjoyed through the wooded valleys or cliff top rambles. The village has a Heritage and Captain Cook Centre housed in the old Methodist Chapel. The Village also has an ecclectic collection of shops, restraunts, pubs and a Gallery. The Captain Cook Inn sits at the top of the Village and offers free parking for patrons and residents. The Inn offers a variety of real ales, the locally brewed house ale (only available at The Captain Cook Inn) is very popular with the locals and supplied from North Yorshire Brewery. The pub has live music events every month and during these evenings the music can carry through the building, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this please contact us. We offer an extensive menu of home cooked meals, supplemented by a specials board. All produce is locally sourced where possible to ensure freshness and to assist with the local economy. We attempt to cater for all dietry requirements, if the menu does not suit please ask and we will endeavour to meet your needs. We can cater for all size of parties, but require pre-booking for larger parties where possible. The Captain Cook Inn accommodation consists mainly of double en-suite rooms, although we also have en-suite family rooms and can cater for larger parties such as walkers or surfers. All rooms have flat screen televisions with free view, free wifi, tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water and complementary bathroom toiletries

Captain Cook Hotel ( Staithes)
The hotel is in the middle of being renovated, so very untidy at the moment. I am sure it will be worth another visit when it is done.

Hotel undergoing refit. Updated areas are great and service is very friendly and helpful.
The family room was excellent. The bedroom was being updated, so not fair to judge yet, but all the work so far suggests that it will be bright and comfortable. The owners are helpful and friendly. The home made bar food is very good. Particularly liked the extra big bath towels and the coffee tray.

Fabulous food and beer, shame about the service and the noise!
I stayed for the one night to break up a business trip. I'd picked the hotel, knowing that there was still a fair amount of work going on - which didn't worry me.
I was met with a very warm welcome by (what turned out to be) the chef, who was running around, showing people to their rooms, whilst trying to prep the evenings' food and serve behind the bar!
Once upstairs, despite the work and mess, the room was really spacious and comfortable and was obviously one of the newly refurbished ones.
The overall service in the evening was barely acceptable, with lengthy waits for service and for food - though both were well worth waiting for when they came - fantastic beers and good wholesome food!
What started out a very comfortable nights sleep was shattered at 5am by a guest running a shower immediately above me, then clattering about until he stomped past my room on his way out at 5.30!!
I'd definitely stay here again, for the ale and food, but I'll be happier when the refurb is finished and there are adequate staff.

Oh dear!
The Captain Cook Inn is being refurbished....but the public areas such as corridors were awful - paint spattered and worn carpets, the room we had been booked into was hardly any better, a second room worse - the views - one of an unkempt garden area the other no better. In short we did not stay.
Whilst accepting that the place was under new management, the staff were off hand, no apology for the state of the place and a 'take it or leave it' attitude.
I would not recommend this place to anyone and I will not use laterooms again.

Our Whitby Gothic Weekend
The first thing we noticed was the friendly attitude of the staff on our arrival. I am disabled and they changed our room to one on the lower floor. The building is being refurbished at the moment so there were builders about the place but they were quiet and very courteous. The room itself was large complete with everything you might need and a very comfy bed. It will be nice to go back and see how the finished renovation looks. They do a splendid breakfast and we ate there on the Friday evening. The food was as good as any hotel I have stayed at. I had the Rib eye steak and my husband had the largest portion of fish I have ever seen all cooked to perfection. The bar had a friendly atmosphere and so I was told by a regular it had excellent beer. All in all a wonderful stay in this historic building in a wonderful part of the world.
