We stayed for a 3 night Winter break in December and once again it was excellent. It was our 3rd visit and Jayne and Keith are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them.The rooms are spotless, and furnished beautifully with every attention to detail. There is plenty of choice for breakfast and it is really lovely. Having... More

Yet again we have had a relaxing holiday at the Overdale, everything is just right. From the exceptionally clean accommodation to the freshly cooked quality breakfast, rounded off with the friendly hosts. Both Jayne and Keith are very knowledgeable and helpful. All the rooms are decorated to the highest of standards with natural wood furniture. Can't wait for our next... More

Having been unable to find a reasonable central hotel in Whitby with off street parking we widened our searches to look at Guest Houses. We looked at quite a few but were guided by reviews, finally enquiring by email for a family room availability at the Overdale. Jayne the owner, quickly responded although it was late at night, with good... More

Nice and cosy guest house, they took us with 2,5 year daughter, was very comfortable and no problem whatsoever. Overdale has a car park, which was essential for us as we don't like like leaving the car on the road. It's very clean, really, amazingly clean. Hostess is nice and very attentive to details. Will definitely go again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Overdale for two nights. A refurbished Victorian house with 5 rooms. 5 mins walk into Whitby. I loved the high ceilings and the Wooden floors downstairs. En-suite very modern. The place was spotlessly clean and bed in bedroom 4 was very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and on a damp morning set in a... More

The guest house itself is immaculate. The rooms are really spacious and... More

Having decided on a last minute break to Whitby our usual guest house didn't have any vacancies so we arrived in Whitby at tea time on Tuesday with our fingers crossed.This was the first guest house we spotted with vacancies in the window and we got...
