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

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

We were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm by them both( and by Denzil, the dog who is a gorgeous curly golden doodle!) and that continued all weekend. Its obvious they just love... More

Lovely clean room, owners really friendly and could not do enough for us. Even offered to give us a lift anywhere local in their own car. Breakfast was amazing the best I've ever had. Would not use another B&B in whitby! Can't wait to go back!

We had a lovely stay at Riftswood. Peter and Paula, the owners were fantastic hosts offering a personalised service to their guests eg. daily breakfast choices, storing guests' wine in the fridge! We travelled up by train to Whitby and they even picked us up at the station and dropped us off on the morning of our departure. Attention to... More

Quite far the best hotel I and my partner have ever stayed in! From the moment we got there everything was perfect. We were offered wine or tea and some cake on arrival, the room was huge and very clean. The bathroom was of high quality and extremely clean. Tea and coffee facilities as well as a tv with tons...

Peter and Paula are superb hosts - friendly & welcoming, with cake and wine or coffee on arrival, chocolates in the immaculate room, 'night before' orders for the best cooked Breakfast you could wish for, and the bonus of the cutest & impeccably behaved dog Denzel -it's the best bed & Breakfast experience. We loved it!
