"Quirky Rooms"
We had an overnight stay in the Bagatelle room which is right at the top of the building. Although hard work to reach, the room was perfect for a short break. If we were staying longer than 2 nights we'd possibly reconsider and book one that's a little more spacious. Overall though we absolutely love the place and the food and staff are excellent!

Likes:
Quirky rooms, food and the staff
Dislikes:
No apart from the fact we'd book a different room if we were staying longer

"Excellent But"
Seriously excellent location, service and character of hotel.
But the acoustics in the attic bedroom - Bagatelle room - mean that if the person below has the tv on you can follow every word - as loud as if in your room. Unfortunately this was until midnight and from 7am for us!!
Choose another room if you like your sleep. Read less

"Noise from upstairs"
cold as the old windows didn't shut properly and let in a draft. Had to ask for the heating on but was turned off Sunday before we left. Woke up freezing. Noise from the room upstairs was atrocious. Could hear every step as floor creaked everywhere. We could actually hear them have a wee!!!! We could hear every word they said and they woke us at 3am having sex!! There is no insulation between the floor above and the ceiling in helga Maria. We wouldn't stay again. Read less
Likes:
The bed was comfy and it was in the heart of Whitby
Dislikes:
see above re noise

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 bedrooms 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 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".

If you have stayed in Whitby before you will know that parking can be an issue at busy times. One of the joys of the WH&G is the great location on a beautiful 17th Century cobbled street.This also means that access by car is for unloading only so do please consider this when arriving. We will,of course,do everything we can to help.The closest car park is just along Church Street with CCTV where you can get a 24 hour ticket if required or free parking after 7.00pm till 9am.
