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.

Every now and then, something you had high hopes for, actually delivers. Alison and her team at White Linen are complete naturals at providing exemplary service. This review might need several volumes if I were to detail every positive, charming, cockle-warming facet of our stay at White Linen, so I will merely relate my wife's parting comment after a weekend's...

The room was absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean. My whole family (a group of 8) descended on the B&B and we all loved it. Ali was wonderful, made us all welcome, and made gluten free breakfast for me and my sister (yum!) Really can't recommend this highly enough.

Well cared for hotel run by a warm B&B owner and fab staff. All the rooms beautiful and spotless, with the B&B itself centrally located, about 2 minutes from train station and town. Free wifi and a flat screen TV in each room. I would also highly recommend this B&B to gluten free travellers. We stayed on a family holiday,... More
