Very enjoyable holiday with plenty to do in lovely Whitby however the food could have been better in the Hotel.
I went on the 8 day holiday and had never been to Whitby before! The town and harbour were colourful and interesting with plenty to do for all ages! Boat trips, museums, open top bus, steam tram and the 199 steps up to the wonderful ruined abbey and St Mary's Church! The excursions were good and varied, and the coach driver was excellent and very knowledgeable! My only complaint was with the Hotel! It was in a marvellous cliff top posiition and I had a lovely view of the harbour from my single bedroom although the window was very dirty! There was only one small slow lift in the Hotel which could be a problem if it broke down! The Hotel was old, but quite adequate and comfortable, however the food wasn't very good, due to lack of choice and poor quality vegetables! The Service was good in the restaurant but the reception staff weren't that friendly or welcoming! Overall I would recommend this holiday, as Whitby itself has a lot to offer! I try not to spend too long in a Hotel anyway, so could put up with it's faults.
