We have just come back from a 2 night stay at this lovely B&B and can't recommend it highly enough. What a nice warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble and we felt really well looked after. Our room was spotless with everything you could possibly need and because of Janet's down to earth nature you wouldn't feel awkward if... More

What a fabulous place run by a fabulous couple! I couldn't find one thing bad about Janet and Alan and their wonderful extreemly clean well run b & b. Breakfast is so tasty, it has good variety on offer including a full cooked breakfast and fruit and yoghurt. The rooms are all lovely with nice decor. It just feels like... More

Had a lovely break in Whitby, BB is nice and near centre of town. Breakfast is lovely and is available till 10am which is great as you don't always want to eat early. Owners were very nice and friendly. Nice pubs with entertainment too. Plenty to do and see.

Wow, just returned from a weekend in Whitby. We have stayed in a good number of b&bs in Whitby but this has to be the best. It's a beautiful house, full of original features and decorated to a very high standard. We had room 5, which is fabulous. Janet is a lovely lady and a wonderful hostess, and Alan, although... More

We have stayed in quite a few guest houses in and around Whitby but The Florence Guest is by far this best and plan on staying there again. Janet and Alan were very welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble. We had a good size room with spotlessly clean linen and towels. The on suite was spotless with no broken... More

I can only re-iterate the last reviews. this is without doubt the best guest house I have stayed in in Whitby, if not anywhere. The breakfast IS the best I have ever had. Freshly cooked, beautifully served and a task to eat it all. The room we had was spotlessly clean, lovely linen, plenty of tea/coffee which was re-filled and... More

I have stayed in several hotels & B&B's in Whitby and with very mixed feelings about the quality of them. This is the second time I've stayed at this B&B now and the welcome and hospitality just gets better and better. By coincidence I was going fishing on the same boat as Alan, the owner (with his wife Janet), who... More

We had a very warm welcome when we arrived. Our room was No. 6 on the top floor - lots of flights of stairs but we're fit so we don't mind and we had a whole big bathroom to ourselves. The room, bathroom and dining room were spotlessly clean. A bonus was free wi-fi and an ipod dock in the... More

My boyfriend and I were visiting some relatives in Whitby (for 2 nights) and stumbled across this guesthouse. We phoned up direct and found they had only one room left (which we thought was a good sign). Upon arrival we were greeted by Alan and shown to our room. (Room 6. Top floor attic room). A very quiet room. Very... More
