This was our fifth visit to Whitby and where for most Whitby would not be Whitby without the Abbey for us Whitby would not be Whitby without the Willows, in particular Debs and Martin who run this very special guest house.
We stayed in room no. 5 which is a particularly spacious room, immaculately furnished and spotlessly clean. Having stayed in a number of the rooms we can say this attention to detail is the norm throughout this fantastic bed and breakfast.
The location is excellent with a 5 minute walk into the centre of town and is also very handy for people travelling into Whitby by train with the guest house a short 2 or 3 minute walk from the station. There is a lovely park over the road which is viewed from a huge window in the dinning room which is the venue for the best breakfast you could ever wish to eat. Debs will go all out to create any breakfast you could possibly want, with a huge choice, nothing is to much trouble. After 5 visits though I would find it very difficult to stray from a full English breakfast to die for and selection of toast and home made jams which would put the Women's Institute to shame. . . Seriously, you will not find better.
All this is topped by the two most hospitable hosts you could ever wish to meet. Debs and Martin genuinely care about their guest house, genuinely care about their town and genuinely care about their guests. You will not find better anywhere and we would not stay anywhere else in Whitby other than the Willows.
Thank you both.
