We stayed here for a short break at the Seaside, with the local moors a bonus, we loved it. Great breakfast with homemade bread, good value evening meal and clean well equiped room. No complaints at all, free car parking, pleasant staff. We will be back soon. Thank you. Angela Bangle.

Myself and my partner stayed at The Firs after deciding last minute to pay a trip to the Yorkshire coast.
It's a great B&B, located outside of whitby, so the village is not too busy and peaceful.
Upon arrival, the owner was very welcoming and the room we were given was very clean and had lovely little touches such as homemade cake.
Breakfast the next day was very good, ample amounts of food and great service. Due to the standard of food we decided to have an evening meal. This cost £25.50 per person for three courses and then coffee. The food was great and again more than enough. Typical Yorkshire portions!

We found there was a lot to do and see in Whitby and the surrounding areas.

We would certainly stay again!

My boyfriend and i despite ordering a room on the first floor (quiet ), were shown a room on the ground floor as we arrived later ..5.30 Presumedly they had given ours away ? it was quiet noisy by reception, which was very tired and in need of a good cheering up ..( which gives the wrong impression from the start ) room pleasant and clean , but tired .

Despite being polite enough , the owners was aloof and unaproachable like she just wanted the money realy ..and god help us if we complained , which we did about the room being cold .

The halls were lovely and warm , when my boyfriend complained the room was cold , which it was ., the owner revealed a themometer from near a radiator and retorted , its over 23 degrees ! which it would be next to the radiator ...!!! and let us have a small compact heater . she said that the radiators didn't come on till it dropped below 5 degrees , i predicted , having worked in a few hotels myself , ( and no , im realistic in my opinions ! ) that we would be boiling the next morning as the radiators would be too hot ...hey prestow they were ! strange thought i !!!!!!!!

At breakfast which was very busy , we sat by the window ..a woman appearing in a onesy sleeping suit , on the veranda and picked up the dog dirt from her dog .. : O

The breakfast , was i must say a yorkshire feast ..too much realy ..was very nice and hot ..the homemade bread , delitious and credit where credit due that was nice ..BUT DINNER AT 25.50 FOR 2 COURSES EACH EXTORTIONATE ! so we never bothered .
The homemade jam of necterine and honey popped and smoked when i opened the lid it had been there that long and was mouldy .but the strawerry was very nice ..the waitress brought wrong drink and meal ..but we just eat it the next day ..for fear a poisoned spider would drop from above the bed that night if we dared complain ! or mention .

We stayed two nights , i think i wouldnt stay again or recommed because we both felt uncomfortable and as long as they got the money they werent bothered .. that they done the minimum they could get away with realy ..

Thats why i say complacent ! because i truely feel you need to feel welcomed somewhere , and we didnt feel that ..i appreciate in this business you may get messed about by people ..but because there isnt any other place in town there not that bothered if you call again or not ..u have to stay there if the Runswick arms is full ..please see review of runswick arms for food !

Her mother was realy nice , but i feel her daughter lets it down ...

Room Tip: first floor rooms would be quieter

Found this Guest House by accident at the end of a very long day travelling it was a welcome respite. Quiet and comfortable, rooms spacious and clean. Lovely breakfast the next morning with home made jams etc. Close to the Bay, which is a killer of a walker down to. Need to be fit !!

This is an excellent B&B on the Cleveland Way. Large and comfortable rooms (mind your heads on the sloping ceilings!) some with actual baths. Good breakfast though be warned that if you order kippers they may come with scrambled eggs, fried tomatoes and mushrooms! A north of England practice I guess.
