“Would Not Stay Again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2011

Jill was lovely and very helpfull but.. Towels were worn and smelt odd. There were holes in the sheets. Hot water was from water heaters rather than running hot water. Breakfast was so bad that we left early the next day to avoid it. Decor is very dated and cluttered. TV did not receive digital channels. Would only accept cash.

The listing I viewed said parking available. When we arrived (which took over an hour to find!!!) there were umpteen cars triple parked outside with no where to park within a 5 min walk to the B&B and the parking that was that far off wasn't free.

I was greeted by a young lad who was very polite but didn't really know anything and unfortunately the lady of the B&B wasn't there so we had to up and find somewhere else that had free parking... fortunately we did, at a slightly higher rate but still cheaper than the parking meter!

Jill is a lovely lady who was happy to answer and advice us on any queries we had. However, we feel it was over-priced! Room was an ok size but a mix and match of decor and paper thin walls! Towels were old and slightly worn and there was a couple of stains on the duvet cover (am hoping it had been washed!!) Breakfast was cheap.....hard plastic sausages, badly cooked eggs and extremelly bad coffee! If we had paid £30-£40 for the room we wouldn't be moaning as much! A good location - about 10min walk to the harbour.

Both my husband and I booked here for a 2 night stay we enjoyed it so much that we extended to an extra night. Jill is fantastic!, nothing is to much trouble for her and she does go out of her way to ensure your stay is made as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, we personally would not stay any were else in whitby except the joben and we will keep going back. Its the little touches that count like having a cork screw and wine glasses in your room, never running out of tea & coffee making facilities, plenty of fresh towels and a breakfast that will not be matched. HONESTLY THIS REALLY IS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY AND JILL IS THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS. jodie,dave &pipp
