We stayed here for 2 nights with my husbands parents, the weather was really cold! Our room was a little small, but the parents room had the extra bed in, and was a lot more roomy. Very nice breakfast, you did your own toast, the toaster was pretty slow. Comfy beds and lovely bathrooms. My mother in law had a slight accident with some coffee on the bed, we told Lyn, who offered to change the bedding and didn't seem annoyed by this. All in all a good time.

We stayed here over the Whitby Goth Weekend as we were trading. Stayed for 4 nights and it was lovely. Perfect to come back to after a hard days trading, followed by a hard evenings drinking ;). Have re-booked for November so will be going back again.

One night stay in April 2013.
Very pleasant B&B in a great location close to the centre of town.
The owners Gary and Lyn were friendly and approachable.
Breakfast was excellent.
The only minor criticism I'd make is that the towels provided were too small for showering.
Otherwise highly recommended.

My patrner and I just got back today from a 2 night stay at this b&b, and there's nothing I could say to fault it. The room was cosy and immaculate, the owners Lyn and Gary were very friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast was amazing!! If your looking for a top quality b&b... Book this one!! I can't wait to return already!

We only stayed one night (Sunday 17th March 2013) but we will certainly be back!

We received a very warm welcome from Lyn, the owner, and shown up to our room which was immaculate and very nicely decorated with TV, tea and coffee making facilities (and not a travel kettle either!), hairdryer - you really couldn't ask for more. We stayed in room 5 - which had a lovey period bathroom with an excellent shower - again spotlessly clean.

Breakfast - well, what can I say? You have a huge choice of cereals and toast - almost as much as you could eat as well as the 'full english' - certainly lives up to its name! All was very nicely cooked and not dripping in oil - and hot! You can have as much toast & tea/coffee and juice as you like, so it really does set you up for the day.

Thank you so much for making our trip to Whitby a most enjoyable one.

We enjoyed it so much, we will be visiting the Full English again, so we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Michelle & Andy
