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 husband and I have just returned from a 3 night stay. We cannot praise Janet and Alan enough for their wonderful, and warm welcome. We felt like we had arrived home. Their attention to details, and the care they take is truly perfect. The breakfast was wholesome, plentyful, and varied. Janet is a really gem! Who is down to... 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

Just three rooms makes the service personal and thorough. The landlady is funny, caring and competent. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The perfect location within the town is a strong positive point for the Florence. The cooked breakfasts are to die for! Nothing is too much trouble for the owners in terms of their guests' comfort. The only... More

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
