“A little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We stayed here at the end of May as an impromptu booking for a weekend away. After trawling various booking sites, we found this little gem and booked for two nights bed and breakfast.
We were initially drawn to the place because it is very close to Whitby town centre, but has secure off road parking without the fear of your car getting damaged in a public car park overnight.
Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Jayne who showed us to our room. The house is absolutely beautiful and tastefully decorated. We removed our outdoor shoes in the hallway, before being led upstairs to our room, number 4. A lovely attic room with views over the back garden. Very clean and well presented with a lovely en-suite shower room.
On our way out to explore, we were greeted by Keith who gave us another warm and friendly welcome.
Both of us slept extremely well in the very comfortable bed. Upon retiring, the house was silent - a massive bonus of not staying slap bang in the middle of Whitby.
Breakfast was very tasty. Jayne and Keith could not do enough for you, offering extra toast and ensuring that everything was okay.
Massive thank you to both Jayne and Keith for making our stay in Whitby so pleasant. We will definitely be back (if we can get a room after all the marvellous reviews!).

Just spent two nights at Overdale over the bank holiday, we booked two rooms one double for me and my husband and the twin room for my parents. The hosts were lovely and very friendly,we felt they couldn't do enough for us. The house is fantastic, beautifully decorated and spotless. Lots to choose from at breakfast. Its a wonderful place and we can't wait to go back. Jayne and Keith have a wonderful B&B, they should be very proud of what they have and how they run the place. Well done!

Excellent B&B! Good value for the money. Our family room is large, nice & the most spacious during our recent 14 day trip in the UK. Jayne is a very nice & friendly host who would be bothered to fetch her rabbit & cat to show our 4 year old when our daughter asked to see them. Jayne had also shared with us a little history about the past owner of the house which was really interesting. Our rooms are very nice & clean which look like they have only been recently renovated! The English breakfast was one of the best we had too! Location is perfect and within 15 mins walk to the Whitby Harbour.

My family and I had a great stay at Overdale Guest House. The hosts are such lovely people and their attention to detail was great. The accommodation is spotless, spacious and the cooked breakfast is delicious. A great location with a 10 min walk into the centre of Whitby. I will definitely re visit on my return to Whitby.

Room Tip: If you have children the family room is a really great size.

Stayed over Saturday 22/3/2014 for a weekend break. Guest house was everything you would want, clean, lovely warm room, excellent shower, great breakfast and friendly owners. If you are planning a trip to Whitby this must be one of the best!
