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

Have just stayed for 3 nights at Riftswood which my partner booked as it was my birthday, and can honestly say Peter and Paula were the perfect hosts. 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

We have just returned from a 3 night break at Riftswood and I can honestly say my partner and I really did not want to leave! It is our third stay at Riftswood and certainly won't be our last.

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!

Stayed for 2 nights for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Pete and Paula made us very welcome, the room was comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Petes singing while making the breakfast was an extra bonus???? Would have no hesitation in recommending and hope to return soon

This is a great place to stay. Peter, Paula and Denzel (the dog) are really friendly and generous in sharing their home. The rooms are great, room 3 in particular if you like football, as it looks over Whitby Town football club. We enjoyed watching the game drinking a bottle of wine, left in our room, with a card by...
