Another brilliant stay at Lavinia House. John and Sarah are very welcoming and genuinely lovely people. Nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in room 2 again which has a lovely view to the see. The room was spotlessly clean as usual, warm and inviting. Breakfasts are ample and varied and cater for every taste. Lavinia House is well appointed... More

We always try and stay in room 8 as its a great size room with a fab view. Highly recommend you stay here if... More

We came here on our honeymoon as this was the first place we came on holiday as a couple, the owners are lovely people and are always willing to help and make sure you enjoy your stay, we arrived with a bottle of wine and chocs in celebration of us getting married. Which was a nice touch! The rooms were... More

I told folks I was staying at Lavinia House, which had no ratings lower than 'very good' on Trip Advisor. They told me the owners must have got their friends to do the reviews. Having just come back from spending a week at the B&B, I can vouch for the praise heaped on this establishment. John and Sarah are great... More

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.
