Well what can I say that most reviews haven't. We used to stay at the grosvenor hotel every time we came to Robin hoods bay due to the fact it had a dog friendly room. But due to the fact that this year they have removed that facility. We found ourselves struggling for a place to stay this year. So...

I've stayed here before & love it! I had the double room at the front over the Easter weekend with my little dog Forrest. I originally booked in for 6 nights but a friend came up with her dogs & we booked extra nights. It's a fab little place. Very homely, clean, comfy & friendly. The hosts are great &...

Seafarers apartment is Cosy, compact, clean and very nice, the style of the decor could be a little dated for some people but fits the character of the house, positioned at the top of the hill with its own parking which to me is a god send, only down side is there is no sea view, but we didnt find...

Stayed in the Seafarers. The whole week was spoiled by the very noisy PERMANENT residents in the apartment above who come home at all hours, slamming doors and bouncing on the ceiling above for no possible reason at 1-2 in the morning. Thinking of staying? Don't!

What a shock to receive your review - so unexpected! What I find so difficult to understand is that during your week's stay I had conversations with you both on several occasions and always asked if everything was alright for you and the answer was always positive. Why oh why did you not feel able to let me know about...

On my very first visit to Robin Hoods Bay, many years ago, I stayed at the White Owl. I've been visiting RHB almost every year since. My last stay at the White Owl was in April this year, when my wife and I (and our dog, Rollo) took my recently widowed and very frail mother for what turned out to...
