La Rosa Hotel operate a minimum 2 night booking policy, however 1 night stays are sometimes possible subject to availability. Call the hotel on 01947 606 981 to check.


La Rosa Hotel is a destination for romance, escapism and fantasy.

Situated in an elegant period townhouse on Whitby's West Cliff, our hotel was once a favourite of Lewis Carroll and boasts one of the finest views in the country... Facing us across the picturesque harbour are the ruins of Whitby Abbey, inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Each of our unique rooms have been lovingly designed using Whitby's rich heritage as inspiration. Furnished  with thrift shop finds and carefully sourced antique kitsch, fun and opulence are high on the agenda throughout


Our Victorian tearoom serves home made cakes and drinks and is  available for private hire, as is the whole hotel - a perfect destination for family get togethers and celebrations.


You won't find TVs or telephones in our rooms... La Rosa is a place to unwind and get away from it all. However, we do have a great selection of books and vintage records available in our Cocktail Library for when the mist rolls in, as well as free wifi throughout the hotel.

Think Victorian theatre set. There are no telephones, televisions or showers (but the rolltop baths are decadently inviting)."


Gareth Huws

Daily Mail

Perched on the West Cliff in Whitby, La Rosa is a riot of Victorian inspiration... coupled with memorably decorated rooms and sea views."
