"Perfect stay in a lovely character property centrally located on a pretty cobbled street."
Very enjoyable - staff very attentive and helpful. Modern comforts but with the interior of this old building being tastefully and sympathetically updated. Food has been of a very high quality - had a superb 3 course meal in the restaurant. Compliments to the chef - would definitely eat here again when visiting Whitby. Breakfast also very good - would recommend the full English! Read less

The character of the hotel, you could feel the history of this building. The breakfast was very good , good menu to choose from.
Dislikes:
One little thing was you could hear most things quite easy from other rooms but it is an old building and not really built as a modern hotel.

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 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".
