“Best Guest House in Whitby”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We have been going to Whitby for nearly 20 years and my husband and i both agreed it was the best place we had ever stayed. Paul & Sharon are lovely hosts. The cakes, biscuits and breakfasts were first class and good quality. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was spotless and the wet room was a special wow factor along with the coffee machine in the room. The special touches make it an extra special stay. The Guest house is a lovely building and is situated in a quiet street although it is only a 5 minute walk away from the town. We will definately definately stay there again and would recommend it to family and friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the kelp room but looking at the brochure all the rooms look of a very high quality the...

We stayed for two nights and would highly recommend this guest house to anybody who appreciates good service and a friendly atmosphere. From the warm welcome, tastefully decorated rooms, cleanliness and delicious breakfast this guest house is a great all rounder and convenient location

I had the pleasure of staying at Abbotsleigh whilst completing a Charity Bike Ride.
Staying here was a welcome change from the hotels we stayed in on the way up from london. Sharon and Paul made us really welcome from the start.
The little touches and attension to detail really made the difference.
Paul and Sharon would of done anything to make or stay better.
The room was well furnised,clean and spacious.The food was amazing the smell of home baking a welcome addition.
I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in Whitby.

We had a wonderful break at this fantastic B and B. A lovely welcome from Sharon and Paul to a beautifully restored period home We stayed in the Ammolite room and it was lovely, very high quality fittings and bedding and great attention to detail. The ensuite wet room was fab. The breakfast was superb and high quality and was worthy of any 5 star hotel, beautifully presented and piping hot with a wide choice of items. Before we left Shaon showed us the other rooms as they were vacant and all were equally beautiful and of the same exceptionally high standard. We can't recommend this B and B highly enough. Well done Sharon and Paul for offering such suberb accomodation and being so friendly and helpful. We intend returning.

My partner and I had a perfect break at this beautiful B&B in Whitby. We wholeheartedly recommend it and are already spreading the word to friends and family. Paul and Sharon could not have been more helpful, friendly, accommodating...simply perfect hosts. The decor was beautiful, breakfasts delicious, advice informed and generously given and the little extras such as tea and homemade cake on arrival and biscuits in our room - replenished daily ;-) - just made our stay delightful. We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.

This is our second visit here at Abbotsleigh in Whitby and it was just as great as the first and no doubt next time as well, it is very highly maintained and the hospitality from Paul and Sharon is first class. They have invested a lot in this business and you truly benifit from its comforts and quality of fittimgs. This is far more than a B&B and wish them evry success

Room Tip: All five rooms benifit from same standard, choose ground floor if difficult to go up one or two flig...
