Bats and Broomsticks

4 star rating 11 Prospect Hill

Whitby North Yorkshire YO21 1QE

Deliciously Gothic guesthouse adds a darkly romantic pleasure to breaks in Whitby. Located on Prospect Hill within ten minutes walk of the town and harbour.

Bats and Broomsticks is a Gothic/Dracula themed guesthouse in Whitby, the town made famous by Bram Stoker's novel. The four-poster en-suite bedrooms are imaginatively themed, guests being able to opt for the 'Greenman', the 'Lunar' and 'Solar' bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with Television/video and tea and coffee making facilities. Lovers of candlelit bathing will also be pleased to know that baths are available in each room. Whilst clearly one of the resort's most eccentric and distinctive hotels, the predictable gimmickry and themes are supported by some genuinely sincere and sophisticated furnishings.

This is so much more than a novelty, the crushed velvet bedspreads and the vintage, period details like the lead fireplaces are an absolute joy to behold. If you are a goth, a gorehound or simply looking for that little bit of theatre during your stay in this weird and wacky seaside resort then this is the guest house for you.

The breakfasts come highly recommended and thankfully available during daylight hours. Just don’t order the ‘stakes’ – R4U
