Fantastic value for money. We rang the B and B directly to book. Peter and Julie were lovely. You can tell they thoroughly love their new occupation. They made us feel at home in their home. Cannot praise the location, the parking or the hosts highly enough. Well done guys.

What a gem the Mainstay is..Peter and Julie are great hosts and have created a B&B to be proud of. The standard of decor and fittings is of a very high standard and the friendly atmosphere makes it an excellent place to stay. The breakfast is superb with a choice for main and always a great selection of cereal, nuts,... More

So pleased we found The Mainstay. Julie and Peter are the best hosts, friendly, welcoming, helpful, they want their guests to enjoy Whitby as much as they so obviously do. Lots of help with choosing where to eat, where to drink, where to have coffee, where not to miss - you will have a great break in Whitby if these... More

There is always a slight worry in the back of your mind when you book to stay somewhere you haven't tried before, and have done it all online; you prepare yourself to be a little disappointed, in case it doesn't quite meet expectations. Well The Mainstay was the complete opposite. From the minute we were so warmly greeted by Julie... More

Our break at Whitby, was made all the more enjoyable by staying at The Mainstay, with it's own on-site parking, situated in the centre of Whitby. Every review is correct. Starting with the welcome, the beautiful decor and clean accommodation. The food is exceptional and on my next visit to Whitby, I know where I will be staying . Well... More

Just had a two night stay at The Mainstay. There were two OAP's with mobility problems in Room 1 on the ground floor and we had Room 2 on the first floor. Both were a good size and were beautifully decorated. The beds were huge and wonderfully comfortable. The bed linen was exceptional with super Norway down pillows, guaranteeing a... More

Just returned from a 3 night break in Whitby. We usually stay on the West Cliff but due to mobility problems we were looking for something more central. The Mainstay fitted the bill perfectly. On site parking was a real bonus, no real need to use the car. Julie and Peter are 5* hosts and Woody their dog adds his... More

Luxury B & B in Whitby which is deservedly number one on trip advisor.

Peter and Julie run an absolutely superb B & B - in our view it's faultless. From the moment we arrived and were greeted at the door no effort was spared to make our stay a fabulous one. The house is decorated to an incredibly high standard and the attention to detail is faultless. The breakfast was just wonderful with... More

We booked a two night stay in Whitby, and wow we weren't disappointed! We stayed in the ground floor room, and it was amazing. spotlessly clean. The shower was the best i ever had! The B+B has lush views of the town and Abbey. When booking, we noted that i was allergic to down and when we arrived I was... More
