Patsy and Jo are great hosts, friendly and bubbly. Our family room was at the top of the house, a bit of a climb, but the room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were huge and beautifully cooked, with a good selection of cooked options like smoked kippers or haddock. Good location, just a short walk in to town.... More

We stayed at Rosslyn in August 2015, our 5th consecutive year of visits and, as ever, the service,food and accommodation were spot on. The only downside was to learn that Jo and Patsy are moving on. We would like to say good luck with your new ventures and thanks for making our stays at Rosslyn so welcoming! Kevin & Jan... More

Myself and my husband stayed for a 3 night break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and welcomed by patsy & Jo, nothing was to much trouble. The B&B is spotlessly clean, and the breakfast was superb with everything you could think of and good home cooked food. The B&B is perfectly situated... More

If you intend staying in Whitby then look no further than this little gem. Tried to book initially but didn't get any joy as they were fully booked. Then a change in someone arriving a day later meant we received a phone call and the offer of a Saturday night !! We grabbed it and we were delighted with what... More

Stayed at Rosslyn House on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed! Jo & Patsy are so welcoming you instantly feel at home. The rooms are modern but full of traditional character, clean, comfortable and well kept. Cost includes parking permit for your stay so just leave your car, everything is in walking distance. Breakfast is amazing!... More

My wife and I have now stayed a few times and the standard is always fantastic. We have been in three different rooms now, and all are very comfortable and spotless. The breakfast is one of the best I've ever had, and I've had a few!, lovely fresh local produce and excellently cooked. What makes this our destination of choice... More
