So, B & B isn't something that we're used to; there have been the odd weekend on the south coast at bank holidays but nothing to write home about. We thought a weekend away from London would be a good thing as we've both been working crazy hours and, from a recommendation from a friend chanced upon Rosslyn House in...

We had planned to go to the Lake District but cold windy weather meant we moved our location to Whitby. We arrived unannounced on a wet Wednesday evening and were warmly welcomed. The local information we got from our hosts was very useful and saved us getting very wet finding a place to eat and drink. Breakfast was lovely and...

Our second stay at Rosslyn House, and once again it was very enjoyable. There should be a 5+ rating available. The breakfast was excellent, and we could not ask for more in our rooms. A nice touch was the fresh milk in each room's fridge. A short stroll to the harbour and everything there. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed for two nights in early April 2017. We were warmly welcomed on arrival by the owners. The rooms were first class and had been superbly decorated and finished with fine touches and facilities including, for example, fresh milk for making tea / coffee, etc. in a mini fridge. The breakfasts were also excellent. 100% recommended if staying in...
