The Haven has been a guest house for over 25 years. Current owner, Stevie Yiapatou, purchased the property in 2002 and following a complete renovation, guests started to arrive in April 2003. Contrary to what you might have read elsewhere, Stevie is not leaving Whitby and will still be here offering 'a little bit of Yorkshire luxury'.
The house has been recently re-decorated with no expense spared on furnishings or comfort.
Rooms are normally ready to occupy around lunch time on day of arrival, and guests are requested to vacate rooms by 10.15am on day of departure.
Sorry, but we have no twin or family rooms and do not allow pets of any kind.  Minimum age for children is 16.
AT THE HAVEN, WE OPERATE A STRICT NO SMOKING POLICY.
Please note that we no longer offer a full English Breakfast but will continue to offer a Continental Breakfast buffet.
To start, a selection of cereals, fruits and Greek yoghurt, fresh juices etc. are available from the buffet. Fresh coffee served in a cafetiere, or freshly made Yorkshire tea, also a selection of fruit teas. For those with a hearty appetite we have porridge oats (but not the instant type).
IF GIVEN SUFFICIENT NOTICE, WE CAN PREPARE A VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN OPTION AND ALSO CATER FOR GLUTEN OR LACTOSE-FREE DIETARY REQUIREMENTS.
PLEASE INFORM ANY MEMBER OF STAFF UPON ARRIVAL IF YOU HAVE ANY DIETARY INTOLERENCES.
Adjacent to the dining room is a small comfortable lounge where guests may relax, read or watch freeview television, some books are available for guests to read, please just ask.
Self service coffee will also be available.
Whitby now has introduced parking charges, however we will supply you with a parking permit that enables you to park anywhere within the ‘W’ zone.
We regret that there is a £3.00 charge for this as we ourselves have to buy them from the council.
