Third time on staying at this house and there will be a forth. Great welcome on arrival. We got permit for free parking.We stayed in room 3 which is beautiful, king size 4 poster bed. The breakfast is to die for! (scrambled eggs and salmon are a must try!) Best I've tried. Many thanks from happy customers 😊

All was spotlessly clean and the four poster bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was well cooked and there was a good choice too, just wish we'd had... More

The room was lovely - plenty of space, amazing four poster bed which was very comfy with gorgeous-feeling sheets, and the aforementioned sea... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Lavinia House. The house is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities were more than adequate for our needs. Lovely breakfast and very friendly proprietors. It is in the ideal place for a stay in Whitby. We would very highly recommend.

This is the third time we've stayed here whilst visiting Whitby. We stayed in room 7 this time. The bed was very comfortable, room and bathroom clean, breakfasts nicely cooked, and owners very welcoming and helpful. I would not hesitate to choose to stay here again.
