“Three day stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

we have just returned from a wonderful stay in Whitby.
The full English was a wonderful place to stay the breakfast one of which was vegetarian was superb with as much toast coffee etc as we wanted.
Gary and Lyn were wonderful hosts nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed in room 5 which was spacious tastefully decorated with a very comfy bed.
We will be staying there again.we cant fault it.

Good position to walk into town. Couple of good pubs on the way into town. The whole place was very clean. Good breakfast, in fact excellent breakfast. Hosts were both very friendly and helpful. Because we booked this break so late we were left with the only room available and it was room 2. After reading some previous reviews we knew that one of the rooms was on the small side and it happened to be our room. The room itself is very nicely decorated and the bathroom did what it said on the tin , but on a wet weekend in whitby the room was small with a v small TV to watch. There was only one chair to sit on. You got the feeling that if you spent too long in the room you would start to get cabin fever. That said we would definitely stay here again.

Just got back from a long weekend in Whitby staying at the Full English. Perfect B & B very clean and modern rooms, friendly hosts who make you welcome and relaxed. The breakfast was superb and served promptly. It was nice to be served a decent size pot of tea with breakfast and not having to collar someones eye for a refil like you do in so many hotels. Just can't fault this gem highly recommend and ideally located for a short walk to the shops, harbour and beach. Will defo stay here again when we return to Whitby.

Room Tip: Room 3 light and airy

Having stayed in Whitby numerous times, we've sampled many of the B&Bs on offer, this is amongst the best of them! The place is clean and bright, nicely decorated. Owners really friendly and chatty and breakfast was nice. Rooms aren't massive, but that's typical of the type of place it is, and, to be honest, who needs a massive room? People who find fault with the sizeof the TV need to get out more in my opinion; there's far too much to do in Whitby to be staying in the room watching television! Would definitely stay here again.

We only stayed at the Full English for one night last weekend, but it was perfect. Bedroom was nicely decorated, like a boutique hotel, and breakfast in the morning couldn't be faulted. We only met with the Lady of the House, who couldn't have been nicer. Its a small place with only 5 rooms, each with its own dining table in morning - nice touch. Price for the stay was great too.

We arrived at The full English , on Saturday about 4 00pm as it stated booking in after 3,30, after a 4 hr drive, there was no where to park, but Gary from the guest house was so helpful, in directing us where to park. Our room was small , but very clean , and modern and a fab shower with very hot water on demand, we explored the shops near by , and they were interesting , some don't open until 10:00, and most not open on Sundays... Lyn and Gary, are very friendly, and keen to offer suggestions of best places to visit, always check on opening time before you go... we went to see the Abby, the visitors centre opens at 10 30... Pickering was lovely..... Robins hood bay beautiful but very steep and hilly.... Goathland , heartbeat country was lovely, and the train station was nice to visit.....Thornton-le- dale .... very pretty too, called in at The Fox and Rabbit, meal was to die for ... heavenly........ while in Pickering call in to see the fresco s at St Peter s and St Pauls parish church .......all in all very pleasant trip, will sure to be to go back..... much more to discover..... Lovely clean beach... and chalet s to hire for the day......

Room Tip: our room was on the back so was a little quite from the main road traffic, but nothing can shut the...

We love Whitby and have stayed at several B&B's there we were lucky to have booked here as we booked very late so would probably have just rebooked into one of the pleasant B&B's we had used previously but at 3 days notice in July non had vacancies so we had to search new B&B's

This turned out to be a gem of a find and by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in, Lyn and Gary were wonderful hosts, friendly and genuine, the room was excellent, spacious, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, everything new including the bathroom.

The breakfast was excellent, we love our food and being very busy business people we come to Whitby to relax, walk and eat and the breakfast here was tremendous. Every element of the breakfast was sourced from top local suppliers and on the table was a list of suppliers, the black pudding from the Bury Black pudding company was fab and cooked perfectly (only a black pudding fan will understand how hard it is to cook black pudding well), the bacon, sausage, egg etc etc were all equally good.

We have travelled all over the world and stayed in some of the best hotels the world has to offer, when we have a couple of days break in the UK a good B&B is only place to stay as the UK has such wonderful B&B's that are so much more pleasant than unfriendly large hotels as long as you can find the good ones and this is the best, we can't wait to go back so we will need to book early I am sure.

We paid £70 per night for the 2 of us and it was well worth more, we can't stay at any of the B&B's we have preiously used now as they will not live up to the 'Full English'
