Craig and Mathew are excellent hosts. They made us very welcome during our recent walking holiday based in Whitby. They were so helpful, giving great advice and making so much effort to ensure our stay was both comfortable and memorable. The breakfasts were outstanding and the guest house so well-placed for the town and beaches.

The breakfast beats anywhere I have ever stayed. Comfortable rooms. Ideally located. Facing the park. 5mins walk to town. 5/10 mins walk to Spa. Parking spaces for 3 cars or... More

I stayed here for two nights for my birthday in April. My boyfriend had booked it, and got in touch in advance to ask what could be done to make our stay extra special. They arranged for chilled champagne to be available on arrival, and had organised the most beautiful bouquet in pride of place on the chest of drawers.... More

Dillon’s of Whitby is very special.

We work tirelessly to ensure that Dillons in Whitby has the perfect recipe for a successful 21st-century seaside B&B - contemporary elegance and modern convenience with a healthy dose of traditional warmth and hospitality. Overlooking beautiful Pannett Park with its delightful Art Gallery and Museum, Dillons has the added benefit of some on-site parking for cars and secure on-site parking for motorbikes and cycles. A 5 minute walk brings you to the heart of our beautiful and historic seaside town with its mutitude of excellent eateries, bars, cafes and unique shops. As your hosts, Mathew and Craig, we are committed to making your stay memorable. Whether you’re simply looking for a few hassle-free days away, are on business in the area or celebrating a special occasion, we’re happy to chat to you about your individual requirements. Each of our five guest rooms has its own unique theme with decorating inspiration taken from around the globe. All rooms are well proportioned doubles or king size and have a flat-screen television with integrated DVD, an iPod docking station, free wireless internet access and a stylish en suite bathroom with white porcelain fixtures, travertine tiles, fluffy towels and bathrobes, and toiletries by The White Company.At Dillons we take our breakfast provision seriously living by the old addage that 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day'. Whether you choose to sample the variety of fresh fruits, berries, seeds, nuts and cereals from our buffet or a hot breakfast cooked to order from our menu, we endeavour to cater for your individual requirements. Add to this our seasonal specialities and kippers from Fortunes of Whitby and we are confident that there will be something to tempt you. We take pride in our vegetarian options and source our foods locally where possible using only the freshest ingredients.It is with some pride that we have also received a renewal of our 4 * Gold with an additional breakfast award from Quality in Tourism. This, coupled with our recent reviews in the Sunday Times Holiday Supplement and the wealth of comments made by valued guests on Trip Advisor, reassure us as owners that the attention to detail, high standards of housekeeping and warmth of hospitality will make your stay at Dillons truly memorable. ... more   less
