Lovely hosts and great location
The hotel is in a great location a short walk from the centre of Whitby and the beach. Martin and Vanessa were the perfect hosts and helped with all our requests and recommended some great places to visit. The room was spotless and the bedding really comfy - the mini fridge in the room was a nice touch. Tea and cake on arrival made us feel special and the breakfast menu is extensive and the food was excellent. Would 100% recommend!

First class guest house
Top class guess house, facilities all well maintained very clean and a warm welcome received, slept really well, breakfast was outstanding as was the breakfast room, bright airy and very pleasant. We travel around the United States, the standard of service there in the hotels we stay in is faultless, good to see this guest house aims and produces the same high standards.well worth paying the extra as they go the extra mile.Thank you, we will tell everyone we no about you.

Lovely B&B!
We have been to Whitby several times and this is the best B&B we have stayed in by far. Martin was lovely and very knowledgeable about Whitby, recommending places to eat. When we arrived he offered us a cuppa, which was a lovely touch. Our room was fab and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was made with top ingredients and was nicely made. Martin was a good host, very attentive without being intrusive. The B&B is well situated and only a few minutes walk from the Centre of Whitby.
