We booked Ellie's Guest House for a 3 night stay during February half term. We were the only guests staying at the time and Peter and Val gave us the family room as it was the biggest of the guest rooms. It contained a superking size bed, bunk beds and a seating area in front of the big bay window. The room was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and had a good sized en-suite with electric shower. There was plenty of hanging and drawer space, but whilst we were there they had some new bedroom furniture delivered that increased storage space even further. There was a flat screen tv, a bedside alarm clock/iPod dock and tea and coffee making facilities with supplies replenished every day. The dining room is again immaculately clean and breakfast plentiful (Val's homemade scones are delicious)! They do ask that you let them know the night before if you want a full English breakfast but that wasn't a problem for us and I agree it does cut down on wastage. Val and Peter are friendly and helpful (a chance comment about a proposed walk to Robin Hood's Bay with a bus ride back resulted in Peter finding out the bus timetable for us)! They are also very knowledgable about the area and are happy to recommend pubs and places to eat.
It is only a 5 minute walk to the harbour area with all its shops, pubs and restaurants and so is conveniently placed to have a few beers and then a wobble home afterwards (him indoors' words, not mine!)
It was a last minute decision to go to Whitby and we really dropped lucky with Ellie's and will most definitely stay here again. Go on, book with confidence; you won't be disappointed!
