"1 star accommodation with tired, inadequate furnishings and bathroom, but great service and location"
Tried to be out of the room as much as possible. Hotel is great with great food, service and location, but paying this price you do not expect such a basic room with thin pillows, stained bedspread, mouldy bathroom and a hold yourself shower over the bath. Very creaky and noisy but we expected that having stayed here before. Either we had an awful room by comparison to 3 years ago or the place has gone downhill. Read less
Likes:
Breakfast and location.
Dislikes:
Yes, room, broken furnishings, bad state of decor and stained bedspread. Tiny bathroom with broken window and hold your own shower. Couldn't have curtains open when changing as very overlooked.

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 330 year old building.

Our hotel rooms, having been recently renovated 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".
