Welcoming, helpful, great hosts. The recently refurbished room was very stylish and comfortable, and the breakfasts excellent: Vanessa's 'Sauce Rosslyn' is wonderful, as is the provision for gluten intolerant diets. I very much enjoyed my 6 nights stay. Hospitality at its' best.

Was only in Whitby for one night. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Room was very comfortable and modern. Breakfast was well laid out. Cooked breakfast was very nice. Would highly recommend. Parking was not a problem and B&B is very close to main activities. Five minute walk.

We stayed just for one night and wished it was longer. Warmly welcomed even though we were early and offered a drink on arrival. We had a lovely big room on the top floor, which was very clean, comfortable and quiet. A shiny, sparkling bathroom with a lovely shower. Having a mini fridge in the room was a bonus, as...

We were welcomed with a pot of tea & lovely cake. This was a return trip to Whitby & we would not contemplate staying anywhere else - extremely welcoming hosts, lovely clean room, excellent breakfast with good choice. What's not to like?

Martin and Vanessa were the perfect hosts. Our room was large and very nicely furnished. What a treat to have a cosy feather duvet with immaculate white cotton bed linen and a mini fridge with fresh milk for morning tea. Our cooked breakfasts were delicious. Rosslyn House is a short walk from town and there is parking very close by....

We were welcomed with a pot of tea and a delicious slice of cake. The room ( no 4) was beautifully decorated with an excellent shower. There was a great choice for breakfast and it was cooked perfectly. We will stay again although I expect it will difficult to get a room because it will be so popular.

We stayed here for a two night break and Martin and Vanessa could not have given us a better stay. It was home from home with a really comfortable bed and fantastic, tasty breakfasts. The Rosslyn Special egg dish was perfect - even without the Henderson's Relish! The area is lovely and the sun shone, too. We walked, shopped, ate...
