Upon our arrival we were greeted by Joanne and Chris (It really is like visiting friends). Our room (No.5 as always) was spotlessly clean, light... More

Have stayed here several times and would never go anywhere else in Whitby. The fresh fruit was a very welcome addition to an already great choice of breakfast items. We stayed in room 2 this time, which was very spacious with the usual large comfy bed and lovely bedding plus a view of the sea. Every aspect of Chris and... More

Just returned from a weekend break with in-laws. Very welcoming, exceptionally clean well furnished room. The guest house had traditional fittings which kept the character of the building. Fantastic breakfast plenty of choice. Will highly recommend to friends and family. Thank you for making our trip so relaxing.

It did not disappoint, Joanne who runs the guest house was very friendly & helpful when booking our accommodation. When we arrived nothing was too much trouble, she & her husband made... More

We booked this after reading the reviews and I thought it sounded too good to be true but I simply had to write to report that it really is as excellent and first class as others have said. It has to be the cleanest place we've stayed in and the breakfasts absolutely brilliant! Nothing is too much trouble and we... More
