From its clifftop position, the Royal Hotel,Whitby overlooks beaches, harbour, old town and abbey ruins. It has 115 bedrooms – many overlooking the coastline and beaches – as well as restaurant and bar, making it a perfect destination hotel for a short break or holiday, plus the added bonus that it is within easy reach of seaside towns and countryside. There is a ballroom with a programme of entertainment that includes comedy, cabaret, dancing, singers and quizzes.
Whitby itself has often been voted one of Britain’s best holiday resorts. It has a pretty harbour, cobbled streets, independent shops, a famous Captain Cook Memorial Museum, sandy Blue Flag beach, and a regular programme of activities and events, especially in the summer season.
If you want to venture out for the day, you have the North York Moors National Park, and a spectacular coastline with more cliffs, beaches and fishing villages. Why not take a whale-watching voyage, or visit the famous Whitby Abbey.
