We have stayed here on numerous occasions and its always been welcoming. Ali and Pete the current owners are really nice and greet us like old friends. Nothing is too much trouble especially when we have needed an earlier breakfast in order we can go fishing. We have just let Ali know what we want the day before what we... More

Enjoyed our stay in attractive and well equipped apartment. We stayed in the attic apartment -spacious enough for two adults and two young children. All very comfortable, clean, pleasant decor and a very welcoming owner. Would stay again if returning to Whitby.

Stayed here whilst walking the Cleveland Way. An excellent B&B with a very welcoming and helpful hostess. Spotlessly clean and with a superb breakfast. Ideally located for the town centre, eateries, sights etc.

We stayed here for two nights over the weekend of 6th June for my Mums birthday and we all loved it. The rooms we stayed in were beautiful (Lindrick & Havana), and the personal touches over the weekend made it extra special for my mum & dad, especially the champagne on Mum's birthday, so a big thank you to Ali....

White Linen is a charming Georgian guesthouse quite close to the harbour and the centre of Whitby. We received a warm welcome and were allocated the Shaker Room on the ground floor, which is a good size with two large windows at the front of the house, in summer not over-looked. An en-suite bathroom has been carved out of one... More

Dear RH, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such thorough review. I do appreciate you pointing out that the over-run on the shower room fan is too lengthy. As nobody has mentioned this previously we were unaware that this was a problem, you can be assured that this will be promptly addressed. I can only apologise... More

This was our 3rd time at White Linen we love it. Ali is such a friendly welcoming lady. The rooms are very well kept and spacious and the breakfasts are amazing, so much choice and to top it off Ali had made fruit loaf and bananna loaf very tasty. We will definatly be back.
