Just back from a three night break at this excellent B+B. Having stayed here before it was a no brainer to return. Nice welcome from Davids mum and once settled in it was off to sample the Whitby delights. We had room one just inside the front door, only noise we heard was the odd person coming in and out...

The service from Dave and his staff was second to none, they made us feel welcome from the... More

The cleanliness of the accommodation was faultless and all parts of the service outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. Dave has excellent knowledge of Whitby and gave us some brilliant pointers,... More
