First the good points, very nice welcome when I arrived and checked in, all very clean and bright throughout the building.Also ample parking which is required in Whitby.
We only stayed one night and too be fair did only book a small room, however the room on the top floor was indeed tiny!! I am six foot and struggled in the shower. the bed itself filled the room will very little space for anything else. small gripe but the TV channels were all over the place I expect BBC1 on channel 1 etc (petty I know).
Now the not so good points, the mattress in our room was terribly hard and the shower next door woke us up as the walls are either very thin or the shower unit is positioned on the adjoining wall. I cannot remember when we booked whether we were advised that breakfast came to your door in a basket at 8-30am there did not seem to be any options re the time either. Now it's fair to say that when I stay away I do like a cooked breakfast as its something rarely cooked at home. The boiled egg in foil half a French stick with various mini cereal packs did nothing to impress.
I think there will be nicer B&B's in Whitby and I am sure there are worse, we booked on the strength of the review on here as Trip advisor is usually a good guide. I cant help but think that either the owners have changed or they have taken a different business tack!!
