So this Winter we stayed at La Rosa Hotel in Whitby, and it is a real find! The hotel has numerous rooms to choose from, all decorated in a different theme. Although different, each room has a quirky, gothic style, perfectly befitting of a Victorian hotel on the sea front, in this quaint corner of East Yorkshire.
After receiving a wonderful welcome, we excitedly went to see our room. We were not disappointed.
We stayed in The Saloon Suite, and it was unbelievable. The bathroom had a giant, tin bath, next to a big hanging American flag which itself looked quite spectacular. The bath itself was so big I could practically swim in it!
Americana and old Western memorabilia is perfectly scattered around the room, from ram skulls, to old photos and guitar shaped vintage mirrors; the attention to detail is really what makes this place special.
One of the best things about the hotel is no tv, so you actually have to talk to each other.. yes really!
After we had got settled we wandered off into the town to get some food then came back and relaxed with a cocktail in the “Library bar”, whilst listening to the kitchest of kitch LPs on the old vintage record player.
In the morning we were treated to a delightful breakfast of freshly squeezed orange juice, croissants, muesli and preserves. Delicious!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Yorkshire you simply have to give it a try. This is one place we will definitely be visiting again soon.
