I stayed here in April for my 26th birthday, as a treat my partner. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had all the basic luxuries you would want from a guest house. The star of the whole show was the full English breakfast.. It made travelling round whitby after eating it very difficult but it is the best full English... More

We have just enjoyed a lovely weekend in Whitby, staying 2 nights at The Florence Guest House and what a gem! Having read the reviews before we went it was hard to believe that a small guest house in Whitby could be so good - but it is. The whole place is welcoming and spotlessly clean and Janet is lovely,... More

Our visit this month was the 5th or 6th time we've stayed at The Florence and we would never stay anywhere else. We love it here and find Janet and Alan so welcoming. The breakfasts are fantastic and we still haven't managed to find a guesthouse that comes close to the homeliness and cleanliness at The Florence. We stayed with... More

Although I was only in this guest house for a few hours as I was leaving very early the following morning to go on a fishing boat, I was so glad I found this little gem. The welcome was warm, the rooms were incredibly clean (something that cannot be said of all Whitby guest houses) and the price was competitive.... More

Comfortable and clean and in a great location. Janet is a friendly knowledgeable landlady. We had the whole of the top floor and we loved it. Great views of Pannet park and only about 100 metres to the Harbour . Breakfast is freshly made to order and is delicious. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone... More

My husband and I stayed for one night this weekend. A lovely, spotlessly clean room, with excellent bedding. Very warm welcome. Excellent breakfast and great service. I couldn't find the hairdryer and so went downstairs to find the proprietor, who kindly gave me her own hairdryer. Well placed for the town centre - only a five minute walk. All in... More

Lovely big room and bathroom on the top floor, completely quiet and private. Fabulous breakfast, freshly cooked and delicious. One of the best on this visit. A lovely welcome from lovely people. Nice bed with good bedding. Nicely placed for the town and station.

Such a warm welcome from the start and the guesthouse had such a homely feel. Janet was so lovely and couldn't do enough for you.
