Very friendly staff nothing was to much trouble. Room was very clean and warm and the food was excellent.

Constructive criticism:
Room was smaller than expected but acceptable for the length of time we stayed (2 nights) could do with a more practical layout ie bedside cabinets/hooks in bathroom.

"Memorable, comfortable and in a good location"
The noise from the people staying in the room below Bagatelle in the evening was unacceptable even after I had asked them to be quiet. It lasted well over two hours and was surely heard by staff members. It sounded like children using the beds as a trampoline . Read less
Likes:
The location, the food was excellent, the original detail of the interior, the the staff were excellent.
Dislikes:
Having to wait over 1 hour to be served breakfast, waitress apologised profusely, it was not her fault.
The light inside room Resolution automatically switched on when someone was on the corridor.

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".
