  • “We enjoyed our time in Harbour Sunset although the three bedrooms with no opening windows was uncomfortable.”

    Fans was available but not used through the night

    Fans was available but not used through the night It was a pleasure to sit on the balcony though small in the warm Autumn sunshine with views of Whitby across the river It is close to all amenities a short walk to restaurants and shops and of course the steps up to the Abbey and St Mary’s church
