Lovely B&B, in quiet location
Reviewed 7 September, 2021
Arrived to be greeted with a very warm welcome from Chris. Situated in between Whitby & Sandsen made it a perfect location. Room was comfortable and clean. With free bottled water and biscuits, provided daily. Free parking on the grounds, which is a godsend in Whitby, only 15 minute walk, to the town centre. Chris informed us about taxi's and bus services, should we have needed them. Great selection and quality breakfast. Lovely waitress who looked after us. Very friendly. Would recommend and stay there again
Beautiful weekend away

I booked Haven Crest after researching Whitby area hotels/B&Bs for a weekend away (2 nights) with my wife to celebrate her 50th birthday. To say we were satisfied would be a vast understatement!
Our ground floor room was cozy and comfortable with what appeared to be brand new carpeting, a modern very nice bathroom, and a large wardrobe that would have had enough space for a week's worth of clothes. Shampoo, body wash, and conditioner was provided, and there was also a kettle in the room, and fresh bottles of water were provided daily.
Breakfast was available between 8-9 and was delicious. Full English was more than enough food to get you going and was of very good quality. Fresh juice, tea, coffee also available along with cereals, yogurts, all served promptly in the common dining area.
The location is just perfect. Not far at all from the sea and you can be in main town Whitby in about 15 minutes on foot - and it's a lovely walk either along the hillside or down on the promenade.
When I booked the room it was as a surprise for my wife - she knew we were going away but I didn't tell her where to. Whitby is a place we'd visited about 6 years ago and we always talked about going back so this was a good opportunity. Just after we checked in we went into town to sightsee and the proprietors, Chris and Fay, placed a lovely orchid along with some chocolates and a birthday card in the room for my wife. A very thoughtful gesture that was greatly appreciated by us both. Chris even tried giving me the credit for the idea, bless him.
I wish I had taken pictures of the property itself but I didn't. I have attached a couple of pictures we took of the coastline just down the road (maybe 200 yards) from Haven Crest.
I could say more about it but do yourselves a favor and book it and see for yourself. I promise you won't regret it. Definitely a 10/10 and we 100% will return every time we return to Whitby.
2 Night Stay

On arrival there was ample onsite parking which was great. We were welcomed by Chris who showed us around and to our room.
Room was a good size, bed was comfortable, we had the usual tea/coffee making facilities. There was plenty of storage room for clothes. The bathroom had a shower, no bath. I found the temperature of the water was hard to get right as the dial seemed over sensitive, but once found, as long as you did not touch it, everything was fine.
Breakfast was great. Full English, toast, cereal, coffee, tea and juice. Really enjoyed the breakfast, set us up for the day.
The Haven Crest is a bit out of town, but in a quiet area which was lovely, about a 15 minute walk along the road to the whale bone arch.
There is a very nice pub over the road with great views, and serves food which was really handy, and the food was good too.
The price is also reasonable and I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Our second vist to Haven Crest and everything was still at the same high standard. Rooms comfortable and very clean and Chris and Fay are amazing host with a friendly chat and advice on walks, pubs, places to eat etc. Quiet location ( apart from the seagulls ) with parking, 10 minutes walk into Whitby centre and about 15 minutes into Sandsend. Will be going back
A wonderful stay in a lovely place.
