Accommodation Description:

The White Horse and Griffin Hotel is situated in the heart of the beautiful seaside holiday town of Whitby, North Yorkshire - Bram Stoker's inspiration for Count Dracula. The hotel's renovated rooms still hold the charm and character of many centuries ago.

The White Horse and Griffin Hotel is situated in the heart of the beautiful seaside holiday town of Whitby, North Yorkshire. It boasts a AA 3 Star Rating. The hotel offers high quality luxury hotel accommodation in a 320 year old building.

Our hotel rooms, having been renovated over several years, still hold the charm and character of many centuries ago. All individually designed, the real flame fires are still surrounded by the original wood panelling. The restaurant and bistro offer exceptional cuisine, all prepared using the freshest and finest local ingredients.

Our speciality is based around the beautiful fresh seafood, brought into the town daily by the local fisherman, whilst offering a wide range of meat and vegetarian dishes. Whitby is the home of Captain Cook and world-famous explorer William Scoresby. The hotel is only a few hundred yards from Whitby's famous Abbey and its 199 steps, only minutes away from 'Heartbeat Country' and several other national heritage sites.

The town's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St Hilda's Abbey, high on the East Cliff. Spreading below, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside. With unique old world charm, for centuries Whitby has provided a safe haven for shipping and fishing fleets.

It was once the main whaling port for the North of England. The small fishing town of Whitby is part of the Heritage Coast of North East England. The town has a thriving holiday resort trade, bolstered by the recent arrival of the replica of Captain Cook's ship "HM Bark Endeavour".
