My wife and I have just returned from a weekend at the Rosslyn and it was exemplary. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the food excellent. Our room was spotless, as was the hotel, and comfortable. We will not hesitate to return here and cannot praise the Rosslyn enough. Don't think twice, just book as you won't be disappointed.

The owners of this 4 star b&b, Patsy and Jo go out of their way to produce a very warm welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for them to enhance your stay. Breakfast choice is great using local produce which is superb. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

From the warm welcome when you arrive, right on through to the heartfelt farewells, Rosslyn House cannot be beaten. Our room at the top of the house was perfect for our needs - stylish & comfortable. Jo & Patsy make you feel so very much at home & nothing is too much trouble. My sister and I cannot recommend Rosslyn... More

Stayed at Rosslyn House for one night. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming and recommended things to see and places to eat. The location is perfect with a lovely view of the abbey from the end of the street. Excellent breakfast. All good. Will definitely return here when next in Whitby.

Rosslyn House is extremely lovely. Patsy and Jo were very good hosts, and made myself and my daughter feel very welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious and had everything in it that we needed. We have had a lovely little break, and its a shame we couldn't stay longer. If... More

Rosslyn House is in a lovely spot - only a ten minute walk into the town centre but in an elevated position. A short walk to the end of the road rewards you with beautiful views of the sea. And just around the corner is the place where Bram Stoker stayed and was inspired to write Dracula. The guest-house is... More

They only fault I had with my stay was that it was only one night! Jo and Patsy were lovely and very helpful. My room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and the location is superb. I hope I get to go back again soon for a longer break. I can heartily recommend the Rosslyn to anyone planning... More
