We stayed here because of its reputation as a dog friendly B&B which is so true. Sarah and Ian clearly love dogs, especially Ian who was fantastic on the opening phone call about his love of furry friends. They also clearly love people and are an extremely interesting family who are open, warm and love banter over breakfast! Sarah told... More

Just recently got back from 4 nights at the Magnolia. Enjoyed the stay even more than the last one. Brilliant room, view of the abbey from the window and very comfortable bed. Breakfast cooked by Ian and Sarah, second to none. Satisfied our appetites for most of the day. Would recommend anybody to come to the Magnolia. 2 happy visitors... More

Friendly, spotless and clean we could not fault this B and B. Breakfast was good and they have a vegaterian breakfast choice which was nice. The rooms where comfortable and very clean. Location is brilliant minutes to beach of town centre. Owners genuinely lovely people will definitely return. Had a fab time in Whitby.

Both mum and I (along with our little spaniel Marley) loved our stay in June, so much so that we are coming back again in October! Such a lovely, friendly place to stay and dog friendly too! The food was fantastic and everything was spotless. We felt like we had known Ian and Sarah for years. Can't wait to come... More

Didn't need to buy lunch! Ian and Sarah are unfailingly helpful - Sarah went out of her way to solve a problem for us. We got a parking permit,... More

At short notice we decided to take our dog Bentley to Whitby, and chose the Magnolia due to the 'dog friendly' nature of the bed and breakfast. On arrival Sarah greeted us and was a wonderful attentive host to both us and Bentley, the room was lovely and clean, and well presented like the rest of the bed and breakfast.... More

We made a last minute trip to Whitby for an overnight stay and chose the Magnolia as they are dog friendly. Sara met us at the door and from the moment we arrived until we left nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean, comfortable with all the usual amenities, tea/coffee and hairdryer etc. Good sized bathroom. Lovely breakfast and... More
