Reviewed February 21, 2013

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!

We usually go to Whitby twice a year and try to stay at No 5, however we left things at the last minute and when we decided to book up for the New year for 2 nights, we couldn't get in at No 5 guest house, and other Guest Houses where only taking bookings for 3 nights, (is was no good for us due to going back to work).
My hubby and I and two friends stayed at Ellies guesthouse for 2 nights on 31st December 2012, we had a lovely stay,
Peter and Val where excellent, They where really good to get on with (which is good as we talk to anyone).
The rooms are very clean and the breakfast was really good all fresh and hot we even asked for more toast which was not a problem.
We could not fault this guest house at all, and we will be going back again

Thanks for the wonderful stay.

We stayed in this lovely Bed And Breakfast for the second time! A very warm welcome. The room we stayed in was spacious and comfortable. The bed deliciously comfy! As always the cleanliness of the accomodation is top knotch and a hearty breakfast sets you up for the day! The location is ideal for sightseeing only a short walk down to the wonderful town of Whitby! Val and Peter should be commended for their consistency! We look forward to returning again next year!

Room Tip: Ask for the Family Room even if you don't take any children!

We have been coming to Ellies for several years and are reluctant to advertise how brilliant they are. We don't want to tell you how comfy and clean the rooms are or how amazing their breakfasts are. We don't want to let you know how well Val and Peter can cope with special diets (gluten free) and how nothing is ever too much trouble for them. Ellies is soooo good we want to keep them all to ourselves.so we can keep returning every year!

Spent a couple of nights at Ellies last week, fab location on the West cliff just a few minutes walk into the town. Our room was immaculately clean with modern decor and fittings, and lots of lovely little extra touches that turn an average into a WOW! Breakfast was freshly cooked and really good, with lots of choice. The hosts are welcoming and attentive with a wealth of knowledge about Whitby. No hesitation in recommending this lovely little guest house - we will definitely be back :-)

Arriving at Ellies we were wamly welcomed by Val and Peter who, during our stay did all they could to make us comfortable and helped us out when we required information on a variety of queries, down to bus times and tide times!! Our room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated to a very high standard. Plenty of drawer and cupboard space, and nice homely touches like couple of nice mirrors and tablelamps, furnishings were tasteful. Bed was extremely comfortable and all in all, could find nothing to complain about . Actually felt like home from home. En suite facilities were excellent. An excellent choice of fruits snd cereals were available at breakfast along withe the full english breakfast which was pre-ordered the previous night, so there was no waiting.

Situation of the guest house is in an ideal place, 5 minutes walk to the town itself and 2 mins to the West Cliff area above the town where you can enojy stunning views.

We enjoyed our stay so much we intend to return and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others..
