We can only repeat what others have already said. Julie and Peter were excellent hosts, very welcoming and do they have a lovely house! Unfortunately for us, we were only staying very briefly for one night en route to Scarborough from Durham, so we saw very little of Whitby! The room was spotless and the bed comfortable. The highlight was... More

Our room was immaculate and impeccably furnished. The bed was comfortable with high quality linen. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July in Room 1 which has its own private terrace and we have a lovely time. The room was beautiful, fantastic furnishings, bedding, towels etc although because the weather was so bright and sunny my hubby did wake up early in the mornings as the room was quite bright, didn’t...

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 night break at The Mainstay Boutique B&B. Julie and Peter are the most hospitable owners I’ve ever come across. Nothing is too much trouble, always willing to recommend places of interest, restaurants, walks, music venues etc; The B&B is set in an ideal location, literally minutes from the train station and the...

We stayed in room no 1 for one night at the Mainstay and it was FANTASTIC. We received such a warm welcome as Julie and Peter were such lovely hosts and recommended lots of places to eat and drink. Our room was beautifully decorated and absolutely immaculate. In the morning we enjoyed breakfast, which was delicious and cooked fresh to... More

We have just enjoyed a superb 2 night break at The Mainstay. First of all it is perfectly positioned, being just a few minutes walk from the main town and the fact it has private parking is a real bonus! Julie and Peter were a really friendly couple who went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Their... More

We stayed here for one night in room no.1. From the minute we arrived we were greater and checked straight in. The room was absolutely spotless and the comfiest bed I've ever experienced in a B&B. Nothing was too much trouble during the stay and we were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was outstanding and filled us for... More

Stayed here for three nights and cannot praise this BB highly enough. From start to finish everything was perfect. You are greeted by the most friendly,warm welcoming people-Julie and Peter-that you could ever wish to meet. They are so informative about Whitby and where to dine and visit and every recommendation they gave us turned out to be superb. We... More
