Spacious, clean and comfortable with great views. My husband had emailed the night before to ask if John and Sarah could arrange choccies... More

We have just come back from a lovely 3 night stay at Lavinia House. Sarah and John made us feel very welcome but they are not intrusive hosts and leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace. Our room was on the lower floor with a sea view which was lovely to wake up to each morning. Breakfast was very... More

It's an ideal place, Sarah and John are excellent, they welcome you in and advise of what's available. Then they leave you alone to crack on with your stay, our room is called the snuggle room, not massive but perfectly formed. Lovely clean bedding drink making facilities and tv. Binoculars in the window seats to watch whatever you like. Breakfast... More

Located on Whitby's West Cliff, with lovely views over the harbour and sea from some of the rooms, Lavinia House is an excellent bed-and-breakfast choice. Our room was very comfortable and clean and we received a warm welcome. Breakfasts were very well received (though some jams other than strawberry would have been nice!) and we appreciated the daily biscuits in... More

Great location in Whitby - our room (4) was a little disappointing as it looked out onto a window in the opposite building but if you put your head out to the left you could see a little of the harbour so I do feel this room should have had a cheaper rate for the 'views'. Everything was clean, well... More

This certainly won't be our last visit to Lavinia House. We stayed in room 8, lovely view over the harbour, fantastically comfy bed, lovely bathroom and within easy reach of the sea front. Breakfast was just right, we were well attended to and I really can't find any faults. Thanks :)

We have just returned for a fantastic break staying at lavinia house with John and Sarah. Nothing was to much trouble and the house was spotless. Breakfast was well cooked and served with a smile we really felt like guests in their house. As a housekeeping manager myself I can be fussy but really can say this place is spotless.... More

Came for a 2 night break,John very welcoming on arrival, we had room 6 which although small was very clean and comfortable and had great views over Whitby harbour and the surrounding area. Breakfast was excellent, which set you up for the day ahead. Recommended.
