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

We booked this hotel over the phone at short notice for a Thursday Night family-stop-over. Jill was immediately very helpful and attentive to our needs and after checking the ages of our kids (14&16) we booked the room. We arrived before agreed time but Jill had left a note advising of a mobile number for contact. The Guest House is... More
