Both myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed out stay here. A beautiful place, and the owners were extremely friendly. Perfect breakfasts - the whitby kippers are a must! Would definitely recommend, great visit and we will definitely be returning at some point in the future.

This is an excellent B & B for a visit to Whitby,it is within walking distance of all the attractions that Whitby has to offer. The Lavinia House is clean, tidy and the rooms are very nice. An excellent Breakfast was only beaten by the friendliness of the staff and the reasonable prices charged. Would highly recomend.

We stayed here three years ago so when we decided recently on another short break in Whitby there was no question about where to stay. The room was clean, quiet and bed very comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for a B&B in Whitby.

It's on a one-way street and the approach is from a very narrow road, despite road markings that suggest no-entry keep going! Parking right outside is at a premium but you have plenty of space to unload and look for on-street parking close by. You are given a scratch-permit but must park in 'W' areas, all explained in full.

Helpful owners, excellent breakfasts, lovely views, and close to the beach and amenities. Rooms were spotlessly clean and well tended. Very reasonably priced. Room service great. Hope to revisit soon! Jim.

Had a great stay at Lavina House this weekend. The room was lovely and well equipped, everything was spotless and the breakfast was even enough to keep my partner going until tea! Well situated and the hosts very welcoming. Would definately stay again.'

We spent two nights in July at the Lavinia house, and we loved it, and we loved Whitby. The owners gave me great driving directions (for this tired, stressed, American driver) and we found plenty of parking nearby... with passes/permits furnished by Lavinia house. The rooms were very nice, and breakfast was delicious. John gave us several good dinner recommendations,... More

Just returned from three nights at Lavinia House and are more than happy to recommend it. The position is ideal up on the West Cliff and the view from room 3 is the best. Sarah and John make you feel very welcome and provide an excellent breakfast. We very much look forward to our next stay there.
