Lors de mon séjour, les toilettes du dortoir n'étaient pas en bon état de fonctionnement. Le cadre est fantastique mais je pense qu'il est important de prévenir que cette auberge n'est pas facilement accessible (important escalier pour atteindre l'auberge) notamment pour les personnes en difficulté physique.

8 ladies... One roll of toilet paper. Had to ask repeatedly for more. Ended up stealing from another bathroom.

Perfect place from which to explore Whitby, especially the Abbey. Tea rooms on site is a welcome touch. Separating the wi-fi room from the TV room would be good. Perhaps one or other could move to the Georgian Room upstairs, which didn't seem to get much use.
