Great location just opposite the park , 2 minutes walk down to harbour front so very central : has a car parking spot ! Fantastic breakfast with most congenial hosts , very comfortable rooms all different and all beautifully decorated . We stayed in the Raj room at the top of the house overlooking the park .

It was lovely to welcome you both the Dillons, still Whitby's only 5* Michelin recommended B&B. With the added advantage of car parking for the majority of guests included in the tariff, we seek to offer a relaxing get away to all our wonderful guests. We hope to be able to welcome you back at some point in the future.... More

Matthew & Craig were excellent hosts and were not only professional but also very friendly. Great breakfasts (thank you for my first Kippers in years) and a spotlessly clean room. The icing on the cake was a cuddle from Mable (resident but hidden dog) for my wife. Only a few minutes from Whitby centre with its excellent bars and restaurants... More

The room (Toulouse) and location are great. Our host Matthew was charming and produced a first class breakfast each day. My husband can recommend the Fortune kippers. Will stay again when we visit Whitby.

Dillon's is first class and a lovely place to stay. Ideally situated just outside the hussle and bustle of central Whitby. Opposite the park which is lovely to walk through into Whitby. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is a real treat beautifully cooked by Mathew. Craig was really helpful with suggestions for walks nearby.
