The attention to high quality in all the elements of the hospitlaity is excellent. The refurbishment of the Georgian house is tasteful and luxurious. The choice at breakfast was extensive and the food was beautifully prepared, from the freshly made quiches to the delicious cooked breakfast. The welcome was warm. We would highly recommend this guest house.

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

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

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.
