The b&b we had originally booked had a small incident and moved us to The Rosslyn. Best thing for us. Patsy and Jo did us proud. Nice room, excellent bed. All mod cons incl free wifi etc. and a sumptuous breakfast. Sound advice about local points of interest. We wished we could have stayed longer. A truly lovely place. Recommended... More

Second visit to Rosslyn House with my five year old daughter and this time mum came along on the trip! Jo and Patsy have yet again made us feel extremely welcome and nothing is too much trouble! We stayed in the family room at the top of the house. We found it to be extremely comfortable and well laid out.... More

Just returned from our 1st stay in Whitby at the completely lovely Rosslyn House. We had room 3 on the 2nd floor which had an adjoining room with bunk beds for our 2 children (15 & 12), TV, tea, coffee, chocolate and bottled water and plenty of towels so very comfortable. Everywhere was immaculately clean and with tasteful décor, we... More

Revisited this B & B over the Regatta week end. Jo and Patsy are great hosts and continue to provide superb accomodation and breakfasts which are second to none. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit. Many thanks Stuart & Suzanne

I stayed with two of my grandchildren during the Regatta weekend. The two rooms we stayed in we're very clean. Patsy and Jo were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was superb and delicious. The location at West Cliff was fantastic as the events at the Regatta were only a few minutes walk away. I can't fault it at all.... More

What a beautiful house and fantastic owners, as a family of 4 with 2 children (age 4 and 11) Patsy and Jo couldn't have made us any more welcome. The room was a great size and plenty big enough for 4 of us. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and fresh. The house is welcoming and immaculate, very comfortable beds, and a... More

A very well presented guest house, which is well run and has a very welcoming atmosphere to it. Our room which was a twin room (number 6) on the very top floor was very comfortable indeed, and the beds were super comfortable which gave us a very good nights sleep. Breakfast was superb, and there was a very good choice... More

Patsy and Jo have created the place that they would choose to stay in if they went away. Everything in the communal areas (breakfast room and guests mini kitchen) has been chosen with care to meet the needs of their guests for optimal comfort and enjoyment. Our room was tasteful and coordinated and sooooooo comfortable. Being on the top floor,... More
