The Joben guest house is in an ideal location. Jill was lovely and very helpful and the room was cosy and clean. The only downside was the tea/coffee facilities, the mugs were full of dust and the milk cartons were out of date so we couldnt have a drink in our room. The bed wasnt made nor the room cleaned...

The guest house is well located- just a few minutes from the harbour. Our room had a separate bathroom and I was concerned about privacy. But the bathroom was just for us and only across the way. The bathroom was lovely and the bed was comfy. All very clean. Full English served both mornings and landlady, Jill, was extremely friendly...

Nice, friendly place to stay. Large and well equipped room, more than adequate for our needs. Good selection of cereals, toast and a nice cooked breakfast, only improvement would be better quality coffee.

Went for a quick overnight stay here and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. This was lke staying at your favourite Aunties house. Lovely comfortable room and spotlessly clean. Pubs within 1 minutes walking distance. Jo was such a warm and welcoming host and her breakfasts were delicious. We will DEFINITELY be back again soon.

My husband and I have stayed in Whitby a few times but never found anywhere we really liked enough to be our regular place to stay but now we have ! Jill is amazing and so warm and welcoming . She made us feel at home and the other reviews were absolutely right when they said Jill can't do enough...
