Very convenient location for the Cleveland Way walk we were doing. Extremely friendly reception by both host and hostess. Coffee and lots of home-made cake when we arrived. Our breakfast menu request sheets were already printed - with our names on. A double click in the appropriate box did get me two huge pieces of black pudding with breakfast! The... More

Paula and Peter were the perfect B&B hosts, very kind, friendly and welcoming. The B&B was comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were delicious! The B&B is in a good location within easy walking distance of town. We had a baby with us and felt very welcome with a travel cot and high chair available for our stay. Would highly recommend...

We arrived at the Riftswood on the afternoon of 16th June, as I approached I saw a a large black dog looking out of the window. Upon knocking the door was opened by Paula the landlady. The first thing she asked was if I was okay with dogs, when I answered yes I was introduced to Denzil, his character was... More

We stayed at Riftswood for 4 nights, everything from the welcome with home made cake, wine, tea or coffee to us leaving was wonderful. Peter and Paula are the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely, even better than the photo's. Breakfast was great and my husband really enjoyed the famous Fortunes kippers on two... More

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
