Have just had a three night stay in this very welcoming B&B, which offers many thoughtful little extra touches of quality to make it well above average. To name but a few: we had never previously seen a tea/coffee tray with a cafetière, plus sachets of both standard and decaff coffee; in addition to the little pots of long-life milk,...

People say this is the best B&B in Whitby - I can't comment because I've stayed nowhere else since 1995 when the wonderful 'Bunt' was the owner, and I've seen no reason to change since Jane & Mary took over.

we always go to this place,the ladies are so helpful,its a lovely quirky place with exellent views,very homely and the breakfast products are 2nd none,the £74 room price is so worth it,the only gripe i have is that in room 8 they invest in a larger tv,the size is a bit outdated now but no other faults

At the price point I was not sure what I would get, but was pleasantly surpised. Nice room, not en suite but I knew this at the time of booking and loo was right outside my door. Great breakfast and very friendly owners.

E have just got back from a family trip to Whitby and we were lucky to get into this place. From the warm welcome when we arrived, to the rooms which were warm with lovely comfortable beds, to the wonderfully eclectic collection of vintage items scattered around everything was perfect. The breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked with nice ingredients, a...
