My partner and I stayed at this guest house for 4 nights. The guest house is just a short walk down to the town centre but there is quite a climb on the way back. The room was large with a lovely bathroom. Continental breakfast is brought to your room everyday which was great. We only met Jed but he... More

This is a lovely place to stay, just a short walk down into town and a (slightly) longer one on the way back! It was easy to find and had a well laid-out car park. Our room (no. 3) was at the front of the house and was huge with a comfy bed, a sofa and a small balcony. The... More

Stayed at this lovely guest house for 5 nights with my partner at the end of July - we absolutely loved it and will definately be returning. We were greeted by the owner's son as they were away who was nice and friendly, even letting us in a bit early. First impressions of the guest house were great, easy to... More

Perfectly located with just a short and pleasant amble into Whitby, albeit on a steep but non~arduous hill, we loved our wee stopover here at Elford Guest House. A warm and inviting welcome to a swanky grandiose room that provided all the usual necessities you would expect from a hotel, including hairdryer and toiletries, clean fresh towels and tea/coffee facilities...

Prospect "HILL" is a very apt name for the location of Elford Guest House. Situated at the top it is a nice stroll down into Whitby but not a great walk back up if you are not too good on your legs.Having said that we found it a lovely guest house. The hosts Ged and Linda were very welcoming and... More
