My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary and it was excellent. The hosts were so kind, and nothing was too much trouble! The room was so clean and beautifully decorated and the breakfast was gorgeous. We are booking again, and will always stay here if we visit Whitby in the future!

This was in an excellent location, literally two minutes from the station and the harbour and within a 10 minute walk of everything you could need with the exception of the Abbey which would take you a bit longer to walk to. The room was lovely and clean with lovely bed line, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer, tissues and tv... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay here last week, best B and B stay I think I've ever had. Lovely hosts where nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast is amazing. 1 minute walk down the hill to all the beautiful town of Whitby has to offer. Thank you so much for a lovely stay and we will be... More

We were delighted with our two night stay at the Florence. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Janet the proprietor, who really looked after us throughout our stay. There is very little on street parking nearby however Janet informed us of a place we could park just a 2 minute walk away for £3 per night. The B&B is... More

We both love Yorkshire and over the years, have been to wonderful Whitby many times staying in different types of accommodation. Last year we found 'The Florence Guesthouse' and we were very well looked after by Janet and Alan. The room we had was overlooking the back where an old, interesting, derelict house could be seen in the distance across... More

The guest house is nearly central, within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, the river and the bridge and betond them to piers and the100 steps.It is opposite Pannett Park, so there is a sense of space and green even though on abusy road. It is sparkling clean and the breakfasts are excellent - fresh fruit, filter coffee made as... More

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

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
