Towels changed each day. As per previous...

Can't fault our weekend away, even the weather was kind. The guest house is very inviting + ideally situated for the town centre. Would rate the cooked breakfast as one of the best I've tasted. Would thoroughly recommend + I'm sure will return at some point.

First of all Janet is an excellent host, very welcoming and accommodating from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The room was spotless and very comfortable with all the modern amenities required from Wi-fi, hair dryer, kettle and flat screen TV. The shower nearly knocked me over but after a day of walking around the shops it...

Just returned from a three night stay which we thoroughly enjoyed. Great location, just a short stroll into town and parking just up the road. Janet was a lovely host, very friendly and helpful. The full english breakfast was terrific with generous portions so we didn't eat again until the evening. Would definitely recommend the Florence if you're coming to...

Just returned from our annual visit to Whitby for the Soul Weekender. We have stayed here for the last 4 years and once again were not disappointed. Good location for the town centre (we don't mind the walk to the Pavilion) and all the amenities and eateries in Whitby. Janet is a larger than life character and it's great when...

Wow, stayed here for two nights mid week. From arriving, Janet and Alan couldn't have been more helpful. Alan went with my partner to park the car and Janet helped me with our luggage to the room. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Janet came in after the first night and straightened the bed, and sorted...
