Stayed here in August for an overnight stay. Lovely guest house with lovely hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Late rooms made a mistake with our reservation and instead of the Guest House cancelling on us we were upgraded to a four poster suite room which was a lovely bonus to our break. Breakfast was gorgeous (especially the sausage) the... More

I treat me and my husband to a weekend at The White Linen for my birthday. We have a superb room, great breakfast, so need for lunch (you really do need to learn the meaning of the phrase "small portion" Ali!) and this year I got a bottle of wine and card from Ali and Pete for my birthday.

From walking through the door to a warm welcome from Ali. To a sneaky peek of the loft room that we have booked for new year. What a wonderful place. Breakfast and service fantastic. Well done see you on Nye xx

We have just returned from a excellent weekend in the White Linen. Very clean, friendly guest house, with home made breakfast goodies. Ideal location, limited parking but caused us no bother. We highly recommend and will be re-visiting.

I stayed here for a couple of nights break with my boyfriend. We have stayed here before and the second time was just as good as I remember. We cannot fault it. Wonderful rooms and friendly staff. The breakfast is just amazing. We had homemade banana bread and the scrambled eggs were particularly good. This place feels very homely and... More

We really enjoyed staying at the White Linen Guest House and would definitely come again. We stayed in the Tudor room and loved it - it was completely perfect. Ali was very friendly and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. Very, very highly recommended.

Just returned from another wonderful weekend in Whitby. The White Linen is a fabulous guest house in a perfect location with excellent hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for Ali and her team. The breakfast is the perfect way for anyone to start the day. Can't wait to go back.
