We stayed here in 2012 and I reviewed it then - excellent of course. But I see that on the website it currently says ' we are no longer taking bookings - sorry' and the content of the website is inaccessible. Does anyone know what the situation is as we would love to stay there again?

We are great fans of B& B's, and rate this number one on our list. The standard of furnishings and fittings is what you would expect in a 5 star luxury hotel, and the service was impeccable. Jon and Sara made us very welcome, carried our bags and helped with car parking, which was a bit tight for a large... More

We had an excellent two night stay, at the Bensons Townhouse in Whitby. Parking was no problem in the car parking space and Jon (the owner) was soon out to welcome us and carry our bags, which was a nice touch. We had room 1 which is very spacious, and has a delightful, modern, en-suite which was spotlessly clean. Once... More

A break at Bensons Townhouse is time well spent. Super service, terrific hosts who make you feel welcome the whole time you are there. Fabulous room and surroundings and great choice for breakfast. Just go there and bring back some great memories whilst looking forward to your next visit. It's easy to see why they deserve their 5 Star rating.

My husband and myself stayed here in December for my 50 birthday, Jon and Sarah are the perfect hosts even arranging for a dozen roses to be waiting for me on arrival from my husband. Our room was luxurious, with a comfy bed with duvet and pillows you get lost in. There are lots of special touches that give the... More

Stayed for 2 nights recently - every detail of the place was just perfect. Jon & Sarah were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. Breakfasts were fanstastic. Everything about the place made our trip to Whitby such a pleasure and we left with many happy memories. Definitely recommend it to anyone and can't wait to go back again.... More

Bensons Townhouse is a league of its own. Everything is perfect and I am really picky! The house is beautiful and styled with taste. Everything is more than clean! The hosts Sarah and Jon are simply super and the breakfast is yummy. Lots of variety and freshly cooked. It is by far the best place to stay in Whitby! Top... More

This was our second visit to Bensons this year, and it won't be our last! I have written a more comprehensive review in April 2013 if you wish to scroll down - the incredibly high standards remain the same! From Jon and Sarah's incredibly warm welcome, to the homemade cakes and tea on arrival, through to the spacious, spotless and... More
