As usual another faultless stay at Rosslyn House.Martin greeted us as we arrived & provided us with our parking permit, showed us to our room which was spotlessly clean & the cake was to die for.Trememdous choice for breakfast, you could have virtually any combination you wanted. Martin & Vanessa are the perfect hosts, you won't regret staying here

From start to finish my experience here was faultless. Very friendly welcome, shown to my room and everything explained in detail (including the complimentary cake, water and fresh milk in the fridge). Spotlessly clean, very well decorated, extremely comfortable bed, spacious bathroom. Breakfast was exceptional - good selection of cereals, juices, yoghurt, fresh fruit and a wonderful full English. Great location as well. Very highly recommended.

Very comfortable, clean, warm hotel, run by a very nice couple, Martin & Vanessa. Stayed 2 nights & booked again for later in the year. If your thinking of taking a trip to Whitby consider booking a room at this hotel, you won’t be disappointed…….a delicious breakfast is also served.

Excellent place to stay hosts very friendly and knowledgeable about all things Whitby. Very clean and comfortable rooms and could not fault breakfast (a great choice). Perfectly situated for the pavilion and a short walk to the town Centre.

Very well located B&B, short walk to the town centre/harbour. Martin the proprietor welcomed us when we arrived & helped with the luggage. He also recommended places to eat & visit. The whole building is spotless. Good choice of breakfast. Would definitely visit again & recommend to friends. The only downside is the problem with finding somewhere to park in Whitby at the weekend, however, this is obviously out of the control of the B&B.
