The Hillcrest Guesthouse provides its guests with a warm and relaxing base to enjoy the wonders of Whitby and the surrounding Yorkshire coast. This Victorian property has been tastefully decorated to a high standard retaining many of its original features. The off-road private parking provides a car parking space for a car per room, this may mean that cars have to be blocked in and we ask you then to leave your car keys. It is situated a five minute walk from Whitby town centre and railway station.

Each of the bedrooms has been individually furnished some with four poster beds. Every room is ensuite and centrally heated, equipped with a colour television (with teletext), hospitality trays and hair dryers. A cot and high chair as well as ironing facilities are available upon request. The ground floor rooms are ideal for those guests who have impaired mobility. Guests are advised to discuss their particular access needs.

A hearty breakfast, with a choice of cereals and fresh fruits are available in the elegant dining room. Vegetarian diets are catered for and guests with special dietary requirements are requested to notify their needs prior to arrival.

Please note there will be no cooked breakfast served New Year's day morning.

Generally satisfactory to good experience. Room clean and the usual facilities - kettle/tea/coffee etc. Room at the side of the house away from the main road - so little traffic noise.
Finding the guest house was challenging. The sign was partially obscured by foliage from the garden and we went past it the first time. Its quite a hike back to the house from the centre of town (mainly uphill).
On the plus side, there was a guaranteed parking place - in a town famous for parking problems.

We were surprised to find that the tea on offer at breakfast was only normal tea or fruit tea. We'd asked for Earl Grey - but this wasn't on offer.
The filter coffee was very good - but no top-up was offered.
The vegetarian cooked breakfast was adequate but not over-generous.

It was OK for B and B for one night. I'd be happy to recommend it to others.

Hi - thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do offer Earl Grey tea and would have offered a refill for coffee. I will ensure our staff are aware of this.
