“surprise weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Took my Husband away for a surprise weekend at the Saxon Villa at Robin Hoods Bay. Des and Heather are a lovely couple. We had a lovely bedroom with beautiful views and the most comfortable bed ever. The breakfast was very nice and would definitely stay again.

We arrived to a warm welcome from Des and Heather and to their wonderfully elegant and beautifully restored B & B. Our room overlooking the countryside was spacious and very tasteful, with a gorgeous comfy bed and classical furnishings. The breakfast was a delight - great quality ingredients and lots of lovely little touches. The location of Saxon Villa is ideal for a circular walk through Fylingthorpe and down past Boggle Hole, across the Beach and back up through Robin Hoods Bay. In the snow it was even better!! We had a relaxing and very enjoyable stay and will hopefully be back another time. P.s. No. 4 Restaurant on West Cliff must be Whitby's biggest secret - fine dining in a cosy atmosphere at amazing prices - try it!!

We booked blind at the last minute, but were impressed by previous reviews and were not disappointed. We had a warm welcome and were made to feel totally at ease, Des & Heather are great hosts. The accomodation is spacious, spotlessly clean and beautifully renovated; the bed was very comfy and we slept very well. Breakfast was fantastic, good quality ingredients and piping hot. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay & hope to return soon. Thankyou.

Stayed as a couple over 3 days. Location is amazing, views stunning, accommodation fantastic, breakfast 5 star and plenty of it. Heather and Des were the perfect hosts, nothing too much trouble, the chocolate left in the room on Valentines day was a lovely touch. Would definately recommend you stay here for the perfect relaxed get-away. WE WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK!!!

This is the best b & b we've ever stayed in. Accommodation fantastic, very clean, and the views are amazing. Breakfast is to die for - it sets you up for the day. Heather and Des are a lovely couple, who will do anything to make you feel at home. The cats are gorgeous. The bed very comfy will definately be returning.

Room Tip: opt for room 4 if you don't mind climbing the stairs.

Lovely B&B, very tastefully restored and spotlessly clean. Great location- just 15 minutes walk down to the bay; book the top floor room for amazing sea views. Lots of nice thoughtful touches like an excellent selection of new DVDs in the room.
