Rooms are spotless with fluffy towels, free internet, tea and coffee making facilities and TV. Amazing choice at breakfast - cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juice, tea or coffee,...

Always a pleasure staying with Simon and Lane. We have stayed during several Whitby Goth Weekends in recent years and are never disappointed. You will be hard pressed to find a more clean,comfortable, and welcoming accomodation in Whitby. The breakfast is generous and unsurpassed in quality and presentation.

Good position being only a 5 minute walk to the harbour. Spotlessly clean and extremely well decorated. Simon and Lane looked after us really well and set us off both mornings with a lovely full English. Would definitely return to this Guest House if ever I'm back in Whitby.

A very pleasant Guest House, the bedroom and dining room was spotlessly clean and well maintained, well decorated. The breakfast was cooked to perfection. A very cosy room with plenty of little milk pots to make drinks The town centre was not too far to walk.
