"Fantastic inn."
This a really lovely and quaint inn. Great value for money and in a very central location. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the bathroom was more than we expected with a big bath and separate shower. The breakfast was fantastic, really delicious. It’s close to a car park so you don’t have to carry bags very far and it’s very central to everything. Would recommend staying here and would absolutely go back. Read less

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 335 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. The closest car park is just along Church Street.

As the building is over 335 years old, we do not have a lift and there are plenty of stairs so may not be suitable for guests with mobility issues.
