My partner and I recently spent four wonderful days at Lavinia House. Sarah and John were really great hosts. Friendly, obliging and just nice people. The room was everything we expected and we had four excellent nights sleep due to the really comfortable bed. John's breakfasts really set us up for the day ahead and the location was ideally situated...

Perfect location only a 5-10 minute walk from the centre. Exquisite rooms which were extremely clean, comfortable and cosy (some with sea views). A hearty breakfast was prepared for us each morning that set us up for an excellent day of fossil hunting. The owners were very helpful and friendly and happy to recommend great places to eat.

We had another brilliant time in Whitby earlier this year and as always staying at the Lavinia House makes it a memorable visit. The owners provide a friendly service, coupled with delicious breakfast awards a 5 star visit.

Our weekend stay at Lavinia House was amazing, a real treat. The room was large and had a very luxurious feel. Everything was spotlessly clean. The sea views from our window were amazing. Breakfast was of a very high standard with plenty of choices and great quality produce. Both John & Sarah were very welcoming and friendly hosts. Location is...
