Had a sea view from my room and the owners had thoughtfully put little seats by the window with binoculars to view the sea. Really clean and fresh and Sarah was very welcoming. Good choice for breakfast - I had scrambled eggs so can't vouch for the the full English, but I'm sure it will have been good.

Staying at Lavinia House whilst working in Whitby, I found John and Sarah to be very friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Very tasty breakfast too. Another great B and B that proves good old fashioned service and rooms are still available.

A cosy bnb situated on East Crescent. It's clean,tidy and comfortable. A lovely,friendly welcome by Sarah (owner). We were on the top floor, room 6. With stunning sea views of Whitby, the climbing of 3-4 flights of stairs is worth it to the room. A double room with ensuite, tv, usual milk, coffee, sugar, comfortable bed, what more do you...

What a splendid location looking across to the Whale Bone Arch and the harbour entrance and only a short walk down to the harbour front and all the restaurants etc. There... More
