Rang this guest house very last minute (ie the day before) as we wanted to stay in Whitby for one night over new year. We are regular Whitby visitors but usually stay self catering or just go up for the day. They had availability and were happy to take a single night booking when many others wanted a minimum of...

This was our first holiday break away with our dog. We were so impressed with the dog friendly attitude of the hosts and Whitby in general. Ian and Sarah made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast first class. It's a lovely location too. Would definitely book again. Sarah and Martyn Barnsley

Ian and Sarah are the most welcoming of hosts, the house is clean and tidy (and will only get better with the planned refurbishment) and the breakfasts generous - I haven't had such a fresh egg for years!

Faced with streets full of guest houses to choose from, Magnolia Guest House had a very welcoming feel to it. A gentleman sitting in the garden with his sweet little dog said the people who ran it were nice and the place was good, his little dog looked like yes he speaks the truth. So we we went in and...
