"Could do better ..."
An overnight with my friend and god-daughter was spoilt by lack of sleep. Staying in the Warrior Queen and Resolution we all encountered a sound like constant running water during the night and were unable to get a good nights sleep. Also unable to fasten bathroom window or door in warrior queen so noise from rattling window during the night. Builders in at 8am I(with no warning given to guests) so we were unable to have a rest after breakfast to compensate for a poor nights sleep. Read less
Likes:
Housekeeping, Customer Service and breakfast was spot on.
Dislikes:
Poor maintenance in the Warrior Queen.Curtain needs mending, blind needs mending, bathroom sash needs fastner, bathroom door does not sneck, rooms that overlook other props need nets or window etching

"Pleasant stay"
Stayed for one night in warrior princess which was a decent sized room but bathroom on the small side. This hotel is very old as is all fixtures and fittings, although clean and tidy. Breakfast was good in both service and quality. Didn't eat in restaurant for evening meal as menu a little limited and sat downstairs in bar next to restaurant there is a smell of drains which was a very off putting. The best thing about this hotel is the location. Overall clean and tidy and you get what pay for Read less
Likes:
Great Location and breakfast and friendly staff.
Dislikes:
Public areas could do with attention, staircase and landings carpets are letting the hotel down and could do with redecorating.

The White Horse and Griffin Hotel is situated a stones throw from the foot of the famous Abbey's 199 steps on a cobbled street in the heart of the beautiful seaside holiday town of Whitby, North Yorkshire.The hotel offers high quality accommodation in a 320 year old building.

Our hotel rooms, having been recently renovated in 2013, still hold the charm and character of many centuries ago. All are individually designed and ensuite.

The restaurant and bistro offer exceptional cuisine, all prepared using fresh, seasonal local ingredients. Our speciality is based around the beautiful fresh seafood, brought into the town daily by the local fisherman. We also offer a wide range of meat and vegetarian dishes.

Whitby is the home of Captain Cook and world-famous explorer William Scoresby. The hotel is only a few hundred yards from Whitby's famous Abbey and its 199 steps, only minutes away from 'Heartbeat Country' and several other national heritage sites. The town's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on the East Cliff. Spreading below, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside. With unique old world charm, for centuries Whitby has provided a safe haven for shipping and fishing fleets. It was once the main whaling port for the North of England. The small fishing town of Whitby is part of the Heritage Coast of North East England. The town has a thriving holiday resort trade, bolstered by the recent arrival of the replica of Captain Cook's ship "HM Bark Endeavour".
