Rooms are always spotless, beds comfy and a warm welcome is guaranteed by Pete and Val. The decor in the room is lovely and there are many nice pictures and decorations to look at. We have stopped here a few times now and definitely recommend it.

Thanks to Pete and Val for another superb stay. We have never been anywhere with such excellent customer service. From letting us have some food on arrival at 10pm as we had not had time to eat all day to providing us with soya milk for breakfast due to a new diet. They really do go out of their way to make you feel very special. See you in April as already booked for the next goth weekend. Thanks so much :)

My friend and I have just spent a couple of days at Ellie's Guest House. Pete and Val were very welcoming and friendly and knowledgeable about the area (as well as events etc).

The room was very comfortable with all the little extras and exceptionally clean (I mean SPOTLESS!!!).The breakfast was delicious.

The location was perfect - near enough to walk down into town or down onto the prom from the West Cliff.

Looking forward to going back again.

If you do get chance to stay here then you will be made to feel like friends visiting their home. Excellent quality and choice at Breakfast. Pleasant, clean and warm, we were there in October. A very good area of Whitby to stay at West Cliff, takes time to walk into town as there are lots of interesting shops on the way.

Quiet, centrally located. The rooms were modern and well fitted out with first class bathrooms. Really good breakfast with a wide selection of choices. Pleasant and friendly hosts. Ideal for a short break in Whitby.

Pete and Val brilliant hosts, nothing any bother to them. Room on the top very nice but a few stairs. Plenty of little touches around the room. Breakfast was served within us sitting down and it was very nice.

Room Tip: I have nothing negative to say about this. Just if you are in an attic room there is a lot of stair...

Pete and Val are very welcoming and helpful with their local knowledge and you do feel as though you are being welcomed into their home. As with all Whitby guest houses, there are a lot of stairs up to the rooms so please be aware. The room was well furnished and tastefully decorated, as well as being very comfortable. There were the usual tea and coffee facilities, generously provided, as well as shower gel etc in the en-suite. There was plenty of choice for breakfast, including fruit, cereals and a variety of cooked breakfasts. There are parking facilities in a local school yard if required - enquire of Val and Pete for details. All in all, our stay in Whitby was greatly enhanced by this guest house.
