“A great nights stay with excellent owners”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Cannot believe this B&B is not in the top 10 in Whitby!! The B&B is comfortable with comfy beds and the option of having breakfast served to your room which was superb. The owners were very welcoming and I would have no hesitation recommending anyone to come and stop here. I certainly would look to stop here on our next visit to Whitby. PS the smoked haddock and poached egg for breakfast is divine.

We recently stayed for 2 nights over the Xmas period .The hotel is conveniently placed for the centre of Whitby and it is just a 5 minute into the Centre .The free parking is a bonus too . Rooms are clean and bright with tea and coffee making facilities .In hindsight I wished I had chosen a larger room.We booked the Standard room which in fairness was described on the booking as small, this wasn't really a problem but the bathroom was tiny and it is difficult to manoeuvre even for a normal sized person . There is also a fair bit of noise during the night if staying at the front of the hotel. Breakfast is brought to your room but is extremely good value at £5.00 . The owners are very welcoming and provided us with suggestions of where to eat and visit

Glad to hear overall you enjoyed your stay with us sorry to hear you had a disturbed nights sleep
but as you said yourself it was over the festive period. All our rooms are described in detail to
the best of our ability. We hope you will book with us again perhaps in one of our superior rooms
although we stress they are not bathrooms but en-suites.
Kind regards Watty & Michaela.

Stayed over the recent Goth weekend and had a wonderful time. Great hosts, lovely breakfast served to your room (and very reasonably priced) and excellent location - parking a real bonus. Stayed in one of the kingsize rooms which was very clean, tastefully decorated and with an extremely comfortable bed! Only thing I would mention is that the bathroom was very small. We were happy make this sacrifice for the extra space in the room itelf, which was very light and airy, but I suppose that depends on your preferences. This will now always be our first choice when returning to Whitby and well deserves its great reviews.

We have just returned from Rylestone Mere at Whitby... fantastic friendly b and b plus free car parking and the town centre is a 3 minute walk so perfect! The owners are so nice and cant do enough for you to make your stay lovely. Our room was a double small and perfect for us.. plenty of tea, coffee,hot chocolate and biscuits..It had an ensuite shower and a small table with 2 chairs as you get your cooked breakfast delivered to your room and that was excellent value for money at £5 each and cooked to perfection! We stayed in room number 4 at the front and we would definitely return but would like to stay in room number 1 as it is bigger and at the back of the house so would be quieter..but overall no complaints only compliments especially to the lovely owners!! Fantastic weekend in Whitby again and will return soon...

Room Tip: If you want a budget room then choose the room only as it was nice as we had a look at it and nothin...

Clean, quiet, perfect location.5 minutes walk to the harbor, excellent choices for breakfast brought to your room ( we had full english served piping hot ) .My wife insists when we go to Whitby again that we book here again, must agree. Also parking spot included so park up and enjoy. Only one problem I saw, nowhere to put your soap whilst in the shower (room 6). Look forward to staying again. Joe and Tina Churchill.

Room Tip: Next time we go might see if we can get a lower floor that's just a personal choice , all rooms...

This was the first time ive stayed in Whitby ,and I was so impressed with Rylstone mere . We stayed in the small double room it was clean comfortable and well decorated ,breakfast was served direct to your room ,and was excellent . the owners took time to show us some of the other rooms they were all of a very high standard,it really seems they have gone that extra mile to make place special. one of the very best places I have stayed !

Room Tip: the small double is good value for a short stay ,the other rooms are much bigger
