Reviewed November 14, 2012

My husband and I booked Dillons as part of our week in Yorkshire. We normally stay in hotels but liked the look of this B&B and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived Matt and Craig were so warm and welcoming it wasn't like staying in a B&B it was more like we were a guest in their home. The standard of cleanliness was high and each bedroom had its own unique style. We stayed in the Manhattan which although was their smallest room was perfect in every way. We appreciated the little touches, proper milk in our room, divine biscuits and a breakfast which was delicious. I had the cooked breakfast one day and the cheesy eggs the next (scrumptious). I honestly felt so looked after I didn't want to go home! Thank you Matt and Craig!!!

Dillons of Whitby is a must for anyone staying in Whitby. My husband and i travel a lot so have experienced many hotels and B&B services. I can honestly say that from the moment we arrived at Dillons we received the highest standard of hospitality and the friendliest service. Mathew and Craig surpassed every other place we have stayed in. And we have stayed in some fancy establishments over the years. Even when i booked i knew Dillons would be good because i received a warm response over the telephone. Putting emotions aside i must tell you about the actual standard of quality as this is what makes Dillons stand out above the rest. And what you actually want to know about when choosing a place to stay. We booked 2 nights in the Toulouse suite and all i could say when i walked in was wow!! The room is just divine and totally spotless with all you could need and a few extra touches. The bathroom was fabulous with a lovely bath that was big enough for 2 and a great seperate shower that easily rinses out all that conditioner. Breakfast was delicious! The quality of food they presented was of a very high standard and so much choice. Really prepared you for a day wandering the Yorkshire countryside or just Whitby town centre, as that in itself will wear you out. We even located the local bakery they get the bread from so we could take some home. Did i mention that we where given tea and lemon cake on arrival. Even though we arrived late because of a change to our plans last minute. It was as if we got rewarded for being naughty. I loved it! I could go on all day about how wonderful Dillons is and how lovely Mathew and Craig are, and how literally nothing is too much trouble for them, as it is all true and more. I suggest you find out for yourselves as you will certainly not be disappointed. Mathew and Craig you have actually unlocked the secret to running a perfect B&B. We will be back next year as there is now no place in Whitby i would rather stay in than your beautiful etablishment. Thank you so much for a very memorable experience that made our anniversary just that extra special. And so did the homemade caramel shortbread that you put in our room. Just fabulous!

We stayed here on 22nd. & 23rd. October and we were not disappointed. I find it hard to say anything about Dillons,as it has all been said by other visiting guests !!!! As soon as the front door opens with Craigs greeting, it does not take long to see why this place is number 1 on Tripadvisor. Well done Craig & Matt you have one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. Will be back soon....... Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

We stayed at Dillons B&B for a couple of nights on our first trip to Whitby, and it was the first B&B we had stopped in as we usually opt for hotels. If all B&Bs were like Dillons, I would never stop in a hotel again! The entire Dillons experience was pure perfection from being welcomed through the doors to (reluctantly) leaving at the end of our stay. The hosts were an absolute delight and the style and ambience of the B&B itself were luxurious and welcoming.

We booked to stay in the Manhattan room, which is the smallest and lowest costing room, which is located at the back of the topmost floor. The price for the room seems so low now after stopping there. Everything about the room exuded comfort; the relaxing white and duck-egg decoration, the soft lighting and the massive, super-soft bed. The room was quiet all the times we were in the room, and included all the usual things you would expect in a hotel (drinks making facilities with FRESH milk, luxury toiletries and a TV) and a few other luxuries like an IPOD dock on the bed side table as well. It was a warm and welcoming place to come back to after the autumn weather of the Whitby sea front.

The food served at Breakfast time on both days was excellent, and as I understand, is mostly from the local area as well, which is good to sea. On the second day I opted for the fantastic local Kippers, which we so tasty, and the taste stayed with me even until we returned home that evening! The breakfast room is lovely, with lots of dark wood and a large picture window looking down onto the street below.

The hosts couldn't be more helpful while we were there, and although we didn't really see them that much as we were usually out all day, the few times we saw them they were cordial and very friendly. Our room was refreshed both days when we came back, and the fresh milk replenished regularly so we never ran out.

If yo are visiting Whitby, there is really no other place to stop. After our trip to Dillons, I just wish every B&B and Hotel were like this, I can't wait for our next visit!

Room Tip: The Manhattan room is at the back on the 2nd floor, it is very quiet and light throughout the day.

We stayed here again 22/23 October. Standards across the board have been maintained. Craig and Mat are excellent hosts and are very helpful with a good sense of humour. Secure cycle storage was made available to us - a plus point. I would not consider staying elsewhere in Whitby.
