“Very enjoyable stay with very friendly hosts”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

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.

Room Tip: Room 5 gets my thumbs up!!

i would like to start by saying thank you to Janet and Alan for making a night away from the kids in to an absolutely amazing night away
i have never been to a guest house with so much information on parking, where to visit ,tourist attractions, warm atmosphere and places to eat or even to have a drink
Alan and Janet where very willing to help us in all aspects of out stay they are a very helpful and welcoming couple
the room that we stayed in was on the ground floor and was lovely it was very tastefully decorated with a very large double bed that was very comfortable
the room was totally spotless with fresh towels and a large selection of hot drinks and toiletries on offer.
the room was kept up to a very clean standard.
the shower has plenty of room to move around in as my husband had no complaint whatsoever and he is a big man
it was so nice to see that they have tried to keep the feel of the georgian building all the way through with the decoration it lookes lovley
the breakfast was out of this world with a huge variety to choose from we opted for the full English and Alan was very accommodating and made me poached eggs as im no fan of fried Alan is an amazing chef and i couldn't have done better myself, there are not many places that will try there best to cook you what you want if you ask for it even kippers if you are staying for a while .
overall there isent anywhere else i would rather stay in than the florance guest house in whitby and we will be going back hopefully very soon
if anyone is thinkin of staying in whitby myself and my husband would recomend the florance in a heartbeat.

We went to Florence guest house towards the end of season but there was still alot of people there.Whitby closes early at night so do what you can during the day.The Florence has no parking,being on a busy road but its minutes from everything you need from shops,Post Office and the beach so you'll have to park in the train station just down the road.The ticket machine is confusing with it's times for paying and times it's free but it's the closest carpark.However,there is a huge,more expensive carpark further down.
The room was lovely and clean with space in the bathroom to move.
For breakfast we had everything on offer to us while a full English was ordered at our table overlookin Pannet Park.

We found our stay at The Florence absolutely fantastic. Janet & Allan were very friendly and welcoming, which was a great start. The rooms were small but spotless and very inviting, with a great selection of hot drinks. The shower was powerful and the bathroom very clean. The location of the B&B was also superb - very close to the centre of Whitby. But the best thing about this lovely little guesthouse was the breakfast, which was nothing short of outstanding! It was obviously cooked to order, fresh and there was lots of it. Allan is a fab cook! There was also a very wide range of fruit, cereals, yoghurts, cereal bars and little extras to supplement the fantastic full English. Janet showed us photographs pf the old spa tower in the yard whle we were waiting for our food, which was really interesting.

Yes, the rooms are small - but this is absolutely no problem, as when visting Whitby there's so much to do, that you won't spend a lot of time in your room anyway! I also didn't notice that the stairs were particularly narrow and we stayed on the second floor. I would definitely stay here again, as we had a wonderful time.
