“Friendly, Clean, beautiful breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at no 5 and we were made to feel very welcome and couldn't ask for a more comfortable stay. The breakfast was delicious and we had no need for lunch !

Will definately be returning.

Stayed here about 4 times previous,usually great,this time in room 5 nightmare!
This room adjoins flats and the noise from there at 4 in the morning was unbelieveable,had a word and was told it was an ongoing problem! Been coming to Whitby for about 7 years now and have noticed some real changes,
The sat we were there it was full of idiots at night (2 stag nights) and was mega busy,think it is losing all it's oldy worldy charm and becoming Scarborough 2.We won't be back for a long time. Jane at number 5 was great as normal but if you stay here(and it is good) ask for a back room!!! enjoy.

Great B&B - lovely rooms almost all ensuite - and the best breakfast ever!! Really good value for money and location is brilliant - just a stroll to the town/sea front. Hosts are delightful!

We ahave been to No 5 several times and each time love the rooms the friendly yet low key service lesaving us to feel relaxed and well cared for and the excellent veggie breakfast and quirky decor to find alongside the clean and artistic rooms. Look out for the mouse hole on the skirting ( not a real one don't panic !!) I would highly recommend a stay anytime of the year and gay friendly is a bonus.

Fantastic location with a view to the sea from the front rooms.

Mary's breakfast are first rate, set you up for the whole day and Jane is very attentive and ensures your stay is enjoyable and comfortable. The B&B is what I might decribe as 'quirky' with some really interesting pictures, sculptures, dolls, toys........you name it, it's in Number 5 somewhere and this just adds to the charm.

The B&B is only 5 minutes walk from Whitby town centre and 2 minutes from the beach.

A fantastic b&b with very comfortable rooms decorated & furnished by a very artistic eye, so a great change from the chintz, etc you often find. Loved the fact the owners thought as holiday makers, with breakfast served until 10 (so no need to get up early) plus an honesty box so you could buy cold drinks from a fridge (for when you come back at night atfer a few drinks & know you'll wake up thirsty). Location was also spot on for all the sights, shops, cafes, pubs & resturants; close to everything bu quiet.

This guesthouse has everything you would expect plus more. The owners are friendly and welcoming and willing to give you advise on the local area. My friend and I stayed in one of the attic twin rooms. The stairs are quite steep, so not for the unfit if you get this room. The room was bright, modern clean and homely. This room was not ensuite, but the bathroom was right next door. The bathroom was very clean, and also had toiletries available for you to use should you have forgotton yours. The breakfast we had next morning was wonderful, we are vegetarian, but they catered to us no problem even using quorn sausages. The full english that others had looked great too. The whole feel of the place is a home from home. The little touches and attention to detail are fantastic, and I would fully recommned a stay here.

  • Liked — Warm freindly service, great breakfast, clean rooms
  • Disliked — The stairs!
