“Gothic weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

This was our 3rd visit to this excellent bed and breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed it once again
Home comforts, comfy beds , no noise apart from seagulls, yummy breakfasts served in the comfort of your room so no need to rush down to a dining room and join the queue!
10 minute stroll into whitby so you can leave your car and relax(free parking)
Owners Watty and Michaela make you feel really welcome and even help you with your bags
We would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

This is our second visit to Rylstone Mere and again, a lovely stay. Watty and his wife were once again very welcoming. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. Although small, it was very cosy and we chose to stay in this room again for this reason.

Close to the centre of Whitby, just a short walk. We would definitely stay again!

I stayed here for a night on business in Whitby, and what can i say? This place is wonderful.

Despite the B&B being right on the road, i was easily able to park, and was greeted by the owner who had taken the time to learn my name before i even got there.

The room was amazing, clean, comfortably and wonderfully furnished. All my queries were answered, and the owner was kind enough to give directions to the restaurant where i was meeting colleagues.

The B&B is about 5-10 minutes walk from the town centre, and the route is easy.

I had a great nights sleep and awoke with a refreshing shower.

I had to leave really early, so was too early for breakfast, but I'm sure that this would have been done to the same high standard as everything else.

A wonderful place to stay, and i would stay there again next time i am in Whitby.

we spent two nights at the b&b and had an enjoyable quiet stay. We had a choice of two rooms both of which were very comfortable, tastefully furnished and very clean. We were greeted on arrival by the very friendly (owner?). The stay included free parking which was very useful bearing in mind whitby doesn't have abundant free parking. The b&b was very close to the centre (about 4 mins walk) so was very convenient for everything and was also very quiet. Breakfast can be ordered as an extra and had lighter options as well as a traditional English, it was also served in our room which was very nice. We would definitely stay again

This was a last minute booking for my husband and myself as we had friends travelling from the south and we decided to meet and stay the night at whitby on Sat 22nd Dec.
After looking at several b&b's i decided on Rylstone Mere and called to book 2 rooms.
We have stayed in several b&b's in whitby before and this is far by the best.
Upon arrival we had a warm reception from the owners whom showed us the rooms also took time to show us the other rooms i can say all rooms where all very nicely decorated, spacious and clean, the Rylstone Mere is in an ideal location near to town centre also has the bonus of car parking.
I do not leave feedback on sites normally but i felt the need to do so as my stay at the Rylstone Mere was perfect and i would certainly recommend it and we will be staying there again most definatley.

Room Tip: We booked 2 superior rooms numbers 2 and 3 which are lovely and spacious room 2 has a four poster b...

Lovely bed and breakfast close to the harbour and only two minutes walk to good pubs and shops and with the added bonus of free parking space.Room was lovely and clean with a great view of Pannett Park. Breakfast was served in the room so we didn't have to rush to get out of bed and was lovely and relaxing. We were shown some of the other rooms and they were all lovely and each one slightly different. Planning to stay here again and would definately recommend

My boyfriend and my second visit to whitby for a quiet weekend. I would never book anywhere else now, the rooms are beautiful, warm and the owners are just amazing people who are more than willing to go that extra mile to make your stay more comfortable.

Just a two minute walk away into the town, my boyfriend and I love it there and are going back in the spring. If you're going to stay at Whitby, I suggest you stay there. :)

Room Tip: The attic budget room is just lovely and cosy and small with on suite bathroom. Lovely room.
