We were in room 8 which was at the top of the house, overlooking the main road. The room was not the biggest in the house but was roomy enough for us. The en suite was small but adequate. There was some noise from the traffic if we had the window open but this was not a big problem. That's... More

Recently got back from a 3 night stay at Elford Guest House. It is a really nice b & b which was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. It is situated at the top of a rather steep hill. It is though, a very pleasant 10 minute walk down into the town . Coming back up is rather more... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this very pleasant guest house in Whitby. Room 5 was very large, had a comfortable bed, and there was very little road noise so we had a good night’s sleep each night. We were able to relax and eat breakfast in our room which was great. With a good selection of cereals, boiled eggs,... More

Stayed here for five nights at end of July. Room immaculate and I've got ocd! Lovely view of abbey from window watching lovely sunsets. Continental breakfast was lovely and fresh with more than enough to set you up for the day. A nice tasty alternative to the usual full English. Owners were lovely and friendly. W definitely book here again... More

My first visit to Whitby in a huge number of years. So my difficulty was deciding where to stay? After much searching and comparing facilities of a number guest houses I selected Elford House after reading reviews by previous guests, On arrival we were met by the owners and made to feel very welcome. Linda showed us go out room... More

Jeanne and I stayed here for 5 days in July 2016 in room 3 so next to the major road but frankly did not hear traffic due to the well glazed windows. Good off road parking and free Wi-Fi add to the value. All rooms are themed and number 3 is pink but a large room with a settee so... More

We were lucky enough to stumble on this beautiful guest house at the last minute. We were supporting friends who were doing a "coast to coast" bike ride from Seascale to Whitby in a day!. We stayed in Room 8, which was lovely. Linda left the keys in a safe place for us as we were not due to arrive... More

We were at the top of the house but what a treat, we had a perfect view of the Abbey and the abbey ruins amazing. We totally chilled out during our stay and this lovely place in which we stayed helped a lot. loved the Breakfast in a basket what a great idea.

A gem of a B&B within easy treach of Whitby town centre, excellent rooms, spacious and well equipped. Breakfast is a treat, delivered to the room each morning, continental style but more than adequate. A pleasure to stay in the B&B and a bonus of off street parking.
