Could not fault our 3 night stay here, Peter and Paula made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The room was excellent and they had even put up balloons and banners for my Birthday. Breakfast was outstanding, as was the after breakfast banter. Nothing was a problem. Can't recommend this B+B enough.

Our stay at Riftswood B&B was fantastic. We stayed with 2 young children (ages 6 and 3), and was greeted by the very kind and friendly Paula who offered us drinks (coffee, juice for the kids and a glass of wine!) and cake for all of us on arrival, and couldn't have been more hospitable. Peter was the same, absolutely... More

Wonderful b&b right by the sea-front in Whitby. We loved the care and attention of everything at the b&b and the hosts, Paula and Peter took very good care of us with yummy cake on arrival and a very good breakfast. Whitby is a fantastic town and it was a very peaceful stay. Thank you!

We were welcomed very well by the owners. There was parking outside plenty of space. Excellent standard from cleanliness,friendliness to local sourced food. The breakfast was the best we have ever had and my husband travels so he knows a good one when he sees them. The location is great you are close to town but in a nice secluded... More

Great little place on the North side. Our room even had a view over the football stadium. Friendly knowledgeable chatty owners who go out of the way to make you feel at home. Every last detail is looked at from a welcome cup of tea (or glass of wine!) and piece of cake, to an itemized breakfast where you can... More

My boyfriend (Gary) and I spent 2 nights at Riftswood. The whole experience from start to end was welcoming, warm, friendly, cosy, comfortable and clean. We were welcomed by Paula who immediately knew our names and offered us cake and a drink on arrival. This was a lovely touch and we instantly felt at home in our spacious and simply,... More

We were really looked after, like part of the family. Breakfast was fantastic. DVD / telly in the room, choice of 40 DVDs in the breakfast room. Large room good period decoration. Peter, Paula and Denzil the dog were the best hosts anyone could have. Anything you needed to know about the area Peter and Paula would know. Location ideal... More
