My husband and I came to Whitby for a few days and stayed at Joben guest house. We found it without any problems, used a navigator. The landlady is lovely and very friendly, goes an extra mile to cater to her guests' tastes; the guest house is small and everyone receives a lot of personal attention. We stayed at an... More

Had a great night here for my daughter's birthday. The family room was spacious and cosy. The shower room was just outside. Breakfast had the works and was tasty. Jill was really friendly and made our stay a real pleasure. We will definitely stay again when next in Whitby.

2nd visit to the joben and was just as good the 2nd time. Jill is lovely and gave us a warm welcome. Our room was lovely and clean and nicely decorated and The bed was really comfy. Jill does a good hearty breakfast. And It's only 5 mins walk to the front. Would def recommend staying here.

A very small personal guest house, ran by the lovely Jill. Jill was very attentive, the rooms are spacious with lovely bathrooms to relax. Would recommend if requiring somewhere with the personal touch.

We arrived here weekend commencing 07/11/14 for a 2 night stay. I must say we really enjoyed our stay - we were well looked after - even when I was ill (I was sick on the carpet) it was not too much problem for Jill who was very understanding. We booked the 'Superior Room' which came with its own private... More

After looking on line for a place to stay that would take us and our little dog we settled with the Joben, Jill couldn't do enough for us, gave us the larger room, I wasn't expecting much with the price and the fact we was allowed a dog, I half expected dog hairs and to smell of dog but it...

Me and my partner have just returned from a 2 night stay at Joben House and enjoyed every minute :-) We paid £130 for a 2 night stay which is reasonable to say you're in the centre of Whitby. It's quite difficult to find and parking is a nightmare! Jill (the landlady) very kindly gave us a permit for the... More
