We booked a one night stay at Magnolia. Phoned to book accommodation, and Ian was very helpful. Upon arrival we were made very welcome. Ian took time to give us information about Whitby, as we had never visited before. Whilst decor is a bit tired, it was clean. We did have problem with shower, which we reported, and Ian was unaware of it, but assured us it would be sorted. Breakfast was good, freshly cooked, and good options. Good fresh coffee. Pleasant dining room. A very pet friendly place. Car parking was on road, but Ian provided us with parking voucher, and so easy and convenient. We were very satisfied with our deal, affordable, comfortable, clean and friendly. Thank you Ian, we'd be happy to stay again if visiting.

Met at the door by Ian who was very friendly.He showed us to our room which was room 4.The room was quite dated and could do with brighter lighting.The bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful enough but the downside was the silicone around the base needed replacing and the toilet had a slight leak which was always on the floor after flushing.Breakfast was ok but not served hot due to been served on cold plates.Ian does well considering he manages the guest house on his own,but to be honest it would be a bonus if he had some help to lighten the load.

Response from Ian W, Owner at Magnolia Guest House
Responded 4 Sep 2018
John, I'm so sorry you had issues with your stay. We always strive to make everyone's stay a happy one and we are proud of the fact that we achieve that in the vast majority of instances. It is such a shame that you didn't mention your issues to me when you were here. I have already identified the toilet leak and the problem has been resolved. As for the shower, it is thoroughly cleaned at every changeover and any silicone replacement occurs as part of an ongoing maintenance regime during off season. I must admit to being a little confused about your cold plates as they are always pulled from the plate warmer immediately before serving. My running the guest house solo is a temporary measure as my wife is not well at the moment but this is not connected to the issues you had. Once again, we are very sorry for the issues you had. Kind Regards, Ian.

Stayed here for a short break with my dog. We were lucky enough to stay in the king size room at the front with a bay window overlooking the Abbey. Clean and comfortable accommodation with a great host who could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was lovely with quite possibly the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted. Thank you Ian, we plan to return another time.
