Everything about it was absolutely perfect and there were lots of extra touches eg a welcome drink ( wine or tea or coffee) and a slice of fruit cake . A personalised letter on arrival with very useful information . The... More

Stayed for one night, wish it could have been more! We booked up only the night before arrival, it was a last minute thing, and I am so pleased we found this B&B. Its in a quiet area, the town centre a short scenic stroll away. Parking is available outside the accommodation. Paula, Pete and Denzil (the lovely, friendly dog)... More

My partner and I stayed here in October last year. And from the minute we arrived till when we left after three nights, we were made so welcome. Peter and Paula are a lovely couple with hearts as big as their gorgeous dog Denzel. The breakfast was great, and the tea and fruitcake on arrival...lovely. It was the nice little... More

This is our second visit to Riftswood and the reason for only 4 stars is that, unlike last time, we had the smallest room which had a shower and washbasin but the WC was along the corridor, though we had exclusive use. The two larger rooms were already taken when we booked. As in previous reviews the welcome couldn't be... More

I booked a weekend break here for my wife's birthday. After lots of research in and around Whitby, in Hotels and B&b's, I opted for Riftswood. My choice couldn't have been better. The hosts Paula and Pete are without doubt the most welcoming we have ever experienced. The room was well proportioned and had an ensuite bathroom. As soon as... More

had a fabulous one night stay while on work trip, Peter and Paula were truly exceptional hosts. The breakfast was amazing and was welcomed with a lovely tea and home made cake. The location is really close to local landmarks , including Whitby Town FC. A local gem and one for your wishlist for beautiful Whitby

This B&B is situated just minutes from the beach, and is a gentle stroll away from Whitby centre. There was plenty of on street parking, and a permit was provided. Peter, Paula and Denzel the dog were all very welcoming and we had smiling, helpful service throughout our stay. The house was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious... More
