Run by a very friendly couple this is a nice stroll (about 8 minutes?) from the town centre. It's really well presented and is very very clean. Parking is at the back of the hotel so very convenient and this made for a great base to explore Whitby, which is a lovely seaside town. Spot on!

The room had two really comfy chairs , TV with built in DVD player( selection of DVDs to watch) , and tea/ coffee/ drinking chocolate and biscuits. The ensuite shower room was small, but again, spotlessly clean, with toiletries and... More

We picked Launceston Villa based on the good reviews and were not disappointed. It is a really nice place, immaculately clean (really spotless), everything works, the owners are very friendly and the breakfast was great, plentiful and freshly cooked to order. It is well located, about a mile from the centre of Whitby and has free parking at the rear.... More

Me & my wife stayed here for 3 nights over Easter. Jamie & Donna (proprietors) were very welcoming. The place is spotlessly clean & everything looks brand new. Our room was room 1, which was a normal double bedroom size with a gorgeous shower room & toilet. This has only just been finished, & to a very high standard. It... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in March 2014. Looked after so well. An excellent experience. And the perfect base for exploring Whitby and the surrounding area! With the 'Park and Ride' scheme soon swinging into action, Launceston Villa's private parking will make the B & B much more sought after! Better get booking now!
