Mine and my boyfriends first get away together. Such a lovely guest house. Both Tania and Dave are very welcoming, there is a real homely feel to the Waverley. Breakfast was gorgeous!! The whole B&b was very clean. Our room was beautifully decorated. Would recommend to anyone

Another great weekend stay at the Waverley - always lovely to see proprietors Tania and David - as usual, my friend and I were met with a lovely smile and our luggage was carried up the two flights of stairs to Room 5 (our usual) with the beautiful view of Whitby Abbey. Can't fault this B&B - always spotlessly clean,... More
