I have stayed in Florence Guest House on 2 occasions now when taking a weekend break away from Leeds. If you are coming from this direction I would recommend not traveling through Scarbourgh and instead taking the Whitby / Pickering A169 route off the A170. This way you can travel across the North York Moors, a beautiful journey and best seen in the day time.
On entering the town from this side it is very easy to find Florence Guest House as you will past it on the main road (on the right hand side) and will not need to drive through the town.
Florence Guest House is located just a few minutes walk from Whitby town centre and is ideally close to all the pubs, restaurants and main sites. Each time I stayed here was at the weekend so I was able to use the private car park provided right next to the guest
house, which as the website states is weekend parking only.
If you can get to stay in Room 5 I highly advise this, which has a bedroom come sitting room feel all in one with lots of space. The room was perfectly clean and the en-suite also, all towels provided were clean and fluffy.
The breakfast room is nicely spaced so you don't feel that each table is too close to the next. You can have a breakfast as big or small as you can eat, consisting of cereals, fruit, yogurts and a choice of all or none from a full list of the ever popular English breakfast. Each available item is listed on a little menu and you can dream up your fry over your tea or coffee. I loved the breakfast here and after a couple of drinks in town the night before, the full English breakfast was a great start to the new day.
I love visiting Whitby and can whole heartedly recommend Florence as a comfortable place to stay. The guest house hosts were very friendly and accommodating with my questions on local attractions and were very knowledgeable on the local area.
