I've wanted to try this b&b for ages, I now wish I had tried it sooner. We were Greeted by Ali upon arrival with a lovely friendly smile. The whole place was Spotlessly clean and the choice for breakfast was fantastic. The food was lovely and we were served by 2 really lovely ladies.I will definitely be returning.

Fabulous house with great stylish touches, beautiful room with everything we may need plus some more. Fantastic breakfast with lovely homemade touches of breakfast quiches and banana cake. Owners could not have been more helpful, from helping us park to local information. Only stayed one night as part of a trip but loved it and would definitely return. Whitby is... More

I booked White Linen the day before our stay - I was very lucky to benefit from a cancellation. We stayed in the Georgian room which I believe is the largest in the house. It is a lovely room with an extremely comfy bed! The breakfasts were excellent - my wife would certainly recommend the locally caught & smoked kippers.... More

Thanks to Ali and her team for a fabulous long weekend earlier this month. A beautiful house with well decorated, clean and spacious rooms. Excellent breakfast, loads of choice and clearly, a great chef! We will definitely be returning on our next trip.

Just returned from another fab weekend in Whitby. If you are looking for a lovely place to stay, in a prime location, with a lovely friendly helpful team then look no further, White Linen is the only place to stay. I can't recommend it enough, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Back for the fourth time! Always lovingly welcomed in the elegant but relaxed setting with its excellent breakfasts, classical and stylish decor and spacious garden. Right in the centre of town, in the heart of things but undisturbed by revellers. Perfect for an adult couple.

What a lovely owner. Friendly and helpful. Superb location. 10 min walk from the harbour. Lovely room with a big bed. Nice bathroom got up in the morning and had a great fresh cooked breakfast loads of tea and toast and juice. Staff at breakfast very friendly. If I come back to whitby I'm coming back to white linen.
