We chose Rosslyn House for its central location and so pleased we did. Martin and Vanessa were perfect hosts. Our room was spotless with lovely touches, eg fridge containing fresh milk.The breakfast was excellent and having stayed in numerous B and Bs,in various parts of the country, would rate this as one of the best.

Martin and Vanessa made us feel very welcome on arrival with home made cake and tea, lovely after a long drive. Stayed for two nights, room was spacious, clean and with a mini fridge. Fresh milk and jar of sweets were much appreciated. Nicely decorated throughout and with an excellent breakfast menu - we had a wonderful weekend in Whitby.

Stayed two days at this property with my wife in August, we were met by the owner and offered a welcome coffee and piece of cake. The owner then took the time to chat with us about things to see and do locally and what eating places they recommended. The rooms were spotlessly clean, tidy and tastefully decorated. Breakfast on... More

We stayed for 2 nights earlier this week and had a lovely stay. The B&B itself is gorgeous - we stayed in room 4 at the top of the house, and found the room to be beautifully decorated and it had great facilities. The location is also excellent - less than a 10 minute walk to all the main facilities,... More

We stayed here for two nights last weekend. It was a lovely B&B. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and cake on arrival, Martin and Vanessa are excellent hosts. Vanessa does a lovely boiled egg!! It's very clean and spacious and I would definitely recommend it to others. We will come back again, we hope. Sheila and Con.

Only stayed one night but this has to be the best in Whitby. Offered drinks and cakes on arrival.. Room number 4 at the top of the house but well worth the climb. Perfect room with lots of lovely touches.. Beds made to perfection ... Breakfast was delicious. Very close to centre of Whitby.. Martin and Vanessa were lovely hosts..... More
