Fantastic breakfast and looked after very well by Wendy, the proprietor. Stopped for two nights and will definitely return for another stay. Only four rooms so very quaint and friendly. Quite an uphill walk from Whitby harbour so mainly suitable for those that don't mind a walk or are prepared for a short taxi ride!

We arrived at 5pm on Friday 24th July for a two night weekend stay in Whitby. We had used Tripadvisor to select Prospect House B&B for accommodation and we were not disappointed! The owner, Wendy, gave us a very friendly welcome and showed us to our rooms. The rooms were well presented, clean and with tea and coffee making facilities... More

We've just returned home from a fabulous weekend at Prospect House in Whitby. We were there to celebrate a 50th birthday and also our first wedding anniversary. We chose the perfect place to stay. Wendy was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Car parking is provided, and the breakfasts... More

Room was nice but some subtle things let it down. The TV was more the size of a PC monitor and cupboards in bathroom were filled with rubbish bags of junk. The bed was, in our opinion really uncomfortable and headboard terrible metal structure which stuck in your back while trying to watch TV which was also in a bad... More

This is our second visit to prospect house, still as warm and welcoming as our first visit, superbly clean and tastefully decorated close enough to historic Whitby and driving to other lovely coastal areas

Stayed here for four nights in August. Warm, friendly welcome from Wendy who had kindly upgraded us to a superior room at no additional cost. Spotless, comfortable room, comfortable bed, very high standards throughout. great Yorkshire breakfast, good menu selection, nothing too much bother.

I stayed at this B&B in April. Its well located near the town centre so is handy for shops, pubs, restaurants. The room was so comfortable and breakfast was worth getting up for. Very friendly and welcoming, I have booked again for June.
