Janet from Sheffield, 9 months ago

Liked the tour and thought it good value for money, especially with the no single supplement offer. The hotel was in a lovely location. However, the tour scheduling and the communication from our driver both needed improvement. We arrived at the hotel 2 hours before check in. We arrived at Goathland 2 hours before our train (not much to do there) and on the journey home, we waited 3 hours for our transfer coach home. We could have left Whitby later - it was a lovely day.

The tour was exactly what I imagined and very enjoyable but the hotel was a huge disappointment. Our room was shabby and to have just one lift (which wasn't working on arrival) for mainly senior citizen guests wasn't acceptable in my opinion.
