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
