Prospect villas is now 3 apartments not a b&b. we stayed in apartment 1, and had a fantastic stay. We are not finicky people and are happy to accept how things 'just' are. The apartment is over 2 floors and has 3 bedrooms. The ground floor consists of the living area with 2 nice sofas, elec fire and tv. There... More

A period and interesting building tastefully decorated in a location very close to Whitby centre. The owners are very nice friendly and interesting "proper people", and who make your stay as easy and as pleasant as is possible. Our room was on the third floor and was very comfortable with all the refinements of a well kept accommodation by a... More

Whitby is a fabulous place to visit with plenty of good hotels and B and Bs but unfortunately the prospect villas isn't one of them. The room itself wasn't too bad although it is rather dated with an old fashioned bulky television supplied with a post it note telling you not to switch off the ariel or the whole guest... More

My husband and I stayed in room 2 at PROSPECT VILLA from 17th to 23rd of Aug (folk festival week ) from our experience over the 6 nights we would probably have been better off staying at the camp site, when entering the bathroom it smelt of urine and even though we bought a spray to eliminate the smell it...

Stayed with my Mother for two nights whilst visiting Whitby town - majorly disappointed. We chose this B&B because it advertised en suite and parking. In reality there are three parking spaces (they claim 4 but this 4th is merely blocking the other three cars in) and the 'en suite' is actually a toilet and shower outside of your room.... More

Carol and David are two of the most welcoming, friendly people I have ever met. We arrived as they were rushing out to go see a concert (ours was another of our last minute bookings). They made us feel at home, made dinner recommendations, gave advice and were just wonderfully friendly from the start. If you like music this couple... More

Excellent one night stay over Bank Holiday Weekend. Car Parking limited (3 spots for 6 rooms) but we were lucky and got a spot. Ensuite room with lovely views overlooking the Abbey (ask for room 4) with extra bed for kids if needed. Guest House is furnished with an 'individual' taste, lots of music themed decor, but I'd far rather... More
