We couldn't have chosen a better B&B for our bank holiday weekend getaway to Whitby. It is in a prime location for walks along the seafront and getting into town. Peter and Paula were incredibly generous and genial hosts who made our weekend feel like we'd been staying with family. Breakfast was superb every morning. The photographs of the rooms... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay in this B&B. Just a brief block from the Whitby waterfront, we enjoyed a brisk walk into the town centre. Our room was comfortable and cosy. Our hosts, Peter, Paula and Denzel were friendly and helpful. Great breakfast with one of the best kippers we have had.

Paula, Peter and Denzel were all lovely. Felt completely spoilt. Great parking and outstanding welcome. Thank you for the cake! Spotlessly clean, fabulous breakfasts and amazing hosts. Would recommend it and hope to return.

As all the other reviews say, it's the hosts that make it. So helpful and friendly. From the warm welcome (with wine and cake!) to the fabulous breakfast the next morning, we really enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and had everything we needed and some of what we didn't need but very much appreciated (extra chocolates and... More

Just stayed at the Riftswood and I would say its the best B/B we have ever visited. The accommodation is warm clean modern spacious and to a very high standard. It keeps many of the Victorian features that define it as a lovely building. Peter and Paula's welcome is truly exceptional. They go into minute detail to make your stay... More

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.
