Lavinia House is one of the most outstanding places to stay in Whitby. We last stayed in room 3 which is very spacious with wonderful views over the harbour. Friendly hosts who served and excellent breakfast. The hotel is clean and well maintained and we will be visiting again. We would recommend and give it five stars.

Stayed two nights in this lovely b and b. Lovely helpful owners and a delicious breakfast. Close to the seafront and a short walk into town. Room two was clean and well maintained with a comfy bed and a wonderful sea view.

We went to Whitby for three nights on 1st May 2015 and stayed at Lavinia House. the room was fairly small but had everything we needed and was spotlessley clean. The owners are very pleasant and work extremely hard. The breakfast was excellent and a lot of choice. We would recommend Lavinia House to everyone and would definitely stay there... More

Following a warm welcome, we were shown to Room 2. Anyone staying here will not be disappointed, very well presented, spacious, comfortable, quality decor with a lovely sea view. Great choice at breakfast. The scrambled egg being second to none. We've stayed in Whitby many times and will certainly stay at Lavinia House again.

We have stayed here before and will be staying here again. Have stayed at several other B&Bs in Whitby before being recommended to Lavinia by another B&B owner and none of them compare.. We have a large room at the front which has everything you could wish for in comfort, space and cleanliness. The whole place is scrumptiously clean and... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Lavinia and thoroughly enjoyed both stays. From the fabulous location to the extremely comfortable rooms, it is one of the finest places we have stayed at. John and Sarah are very nice people and can't do enough for their guests. The breakfasts are gorgeous with a varied menu which can't... More

In an excellent location for all parts of Whitby. The full english breakfast was very tasty and other individual breakfast options were available to suit alternate tastes. would gladly recommend to any... More
