Lovely warm welcome, fabulous home grown and homecooked food, very clean fresh decor throughout. If I had to nit-pick, the ensuite shower room was quite small and I'm not a fan of the overhead shower. I'd definately stay there again as Karen and Gary seem very caring and down to earth people who value the service they offer to their...

Thank you for your lovely review Lesley. The twin bedroom does have a compact en-suite, all the others are much larger, but it has a great shower, really powerful. I am sorry we only have one room with a bath and that is the single room, all the king and super kings are power showers. Glad you liked the home...

Just back from our 4th stay in less than a year, as fab as ever. Karen and Garry are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The decor throughout the whole place is beautiful. There is one single room but all the others have either king size or super king size beds. Toiletries are all provided and are so luxurious....

Myself and my partner had a few days in Whitby and it was very relaxing. The Leeway B&B was so friendly and welcoming. It's very clean and modern place to stay. I would recommend this to anyone. The breakfast was really good and they did a different special breakfast every day if you didn't want the traditional one. We was...

The location is excellent as near to shops/cafes/pubs Karen and Garry were welcoming and very helpful throughout our 3 night stay. Always willing to suggest ideas and give useful advice. Our bedroom was on the ground floor next to the dining room so ideal for somebody suffering back problems. The large room was tastefully decorated (Orla Kiely wallpaper) with a...
