Occupying an enviable spot atop the hill overlooking Whitby’s delightful harbour, in full, clear, view of Whitby Abbey‘s many steps on the other side of the harbour, The Royal Hotel Whitby is a magnificent Hotel to stay in for a visit to Whitby and the surrounding region of Yorkshire Coast.

Welcome to Yorkshire Description

We visited the Royal Hotel in October 2022, and found it to be as wonderful as ever. With standard rooms available for around £120 per night, or £180 a night including dinner and breakfast, it’s not a lot to pay for such an impressive location – you literally cannot mark this hotel down for where it’s positioned.

Whitby Harbour itself is a thronging Yorkshire seaside place, which is well worth a visit, and as good as any continental seaside town. You can view it all from a room with a view, or the bar or restaurant in the Royal Hotel.

Everything about this hotel is quietly functional, but it’s got lots of space to unwind, such as in the large games area or the comfortable guest lounges – all so important if you’ve spent the day climbing stairs galore exploring Whitby in the fresh sea air!

The food is good Yorkshire fare, and reasonably priced. It’s not a fine-dining experience, but rather tasty food is the order of the day, having spent the day building up a hunger walking on the sand.

Would make an ideal weekend or midweek getaway for people coming from within Yorkshire, any time of the year, or a super base for a longer stay for those coming from further afield. Perfect for: couples looking for a quiet stay beside the sea.
