Booked with ebookers who took £40 from my account on booking. My room was £200 so I thought I would pay £160 at hotel but was charged £200. I doubt anybody will read this anyway...having said that I loved the hotel.

Ideal location, staff friendly and helpful

Pros: Full of character Staff helpful, warm and friendly
A wonderful 4 day break for myself and daughter. The White Horse and Griffin was a beautiful place to stay - full of character and warm, friendly staff. The food was excellent. We both fell in love with Whitby

Not as good as it looks on website

We arrived at 2:30 mid October and the room was freezing, we were told the heating is only on between 5am and 9am & 5pm to 9 pm, the drinks are totally overpriced, £12 for a glass of wine and a beer , and the whole place needs a lot of tlc, the bar closes at 10pm so as we got back a little after that, we had to let ourselves in through a back door, the bagatelle room in the attic we stayed in had no fire escape, which was a worry as the stairs leading up to it are very steep as well. No parking either. On a plus side the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was good, we paid £75 for 1 night, we wouldn’t stay there again. We have stayed at much nicer places for around the same price

Distinctly average :/

Overall it was ok- towels were not clean in our room which was disappointing. When we arrived at 8:45 after a long drive, we were told that we couldn't have dinner even though they served till 9 and were still plating up main courses in the kitchen! Room was cosy and the hotel was close to the town centre but I probably wouldn't go back.

Nice central hotel, comfortable. Breakfast good.

Pros: It was a very good location.
Cons: Lighting and information.
Location: Near to lots of shops etc. and the steps to the Abbey.
Generally good experience but I thought the hotel was a little too poorly lit. The subdued lighting was a little too dark for me. Thought the staff should have warned us about having to book for an evening meal in the restaurant. I hadn't realised and the restaurant was fully booked on the Saturday night. My husband and I ended up going elsewhere. Otherwise comfortable.
