A wonderful B&B, one of the best we have stayed in. Peter and Julie were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was really spacious and the standard of decor throughout was fantastic. Lovely sunny dining area over-looking the garden and the breakfasts were great.

Great location in the centre of Whitby, with parking. Lovely rooms with thought to detail. Varied menu for breakfasts and the food was delicious. The hosts were very helpful and knowledgeable on local places of interest and current events. We will definitely visit again.

An outstanding accommodation with several beautiful unique rooms with excellent en-suites. A breakfast is included which consists of cereals, yogurts and fruit for starters as the hosts cook your order from the menu of which most is locally sourced. The Mainstay is run by a lovely couple who are very friendly and help whenever they can. A real enjoyable stay.

This luxury bed and breakfast is a must stay. We wont stay anywhere else in Whitby now. Julie and Peter really look after their guests. The rooms are fantastic and faultless. Breakfast is gorgeous and filling. The location is close to town centre and is so handy. Another plus is parking at this B&B which can be difficult in Whitby.... More
