“Absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Stayed here for Friday and Saturday night with my husband and even though we had high expectations after reading the reviews, we were still even more impressed with the place during our visit.
It's location is excellent, just a 2 minute walk from the Esplanade and the shops. The main seafront is about a 5 min walk away down cobbled streets.
The B&B has lots of character and charm and lots of fantastic finishing touches which make your stay very comfortable.
The beds were so comfortable that we have now purchased the same pillows and quilts as we had in our room. Every little corner of this B&B is filled with TLC to make your stay welcoming and relaxing.
The 2 ladies who run the B&B are absolutely lovely, have a great sense of humour, a fantastic work ethic and a customer service which is 2nd to none!
The breakfast was outstanding and cooked to perfection just as ordered and was great to have such a wide choice of menu!
Next time we go to Whitby we won't even bother to look around for somewhere to stay, we will head straight to No 5.

The room was very comfortable and clean, and very well equipped. Breakfast was fantastic, with great choices for healthy eating as well as the more standard fare. The owners were very nice and helpful. These can be a lot of street noise in the evenings in this part of town, so rooms facing the back of the house may be preferred if this bothers you.

No 5 is a fantastic B&B! Everything was bang on! My room was lovely & clean, well furnished & equipped, the shared bathroom was spotless & even had cotton buds in there (Bonus!) & the service from Mary & Jane was exemplary! So friendly & welcoming, it was like staying with relatives! Couldn't have asked for more variety at breakfast, everything on offer & the kippers were bob on. As for the price, you will not get the same experience anywhere else for such a reasonable rate. Simply outstanding. Highly recommend anyone staying in Whitby to see if there's s room free at No 5!

Always stay at Number 5 when in Whitby and this stay was just as enjoyable as all the rest. Very clean, quiet, comfortable with a warm welcome and the breakfast is the best of anywhere. Free to come and go as you please with the town centre just 5 - 10 minutes walk. Sea gulls can keep you awake at night but you even have ear plugs provided! Have no problems recommending this B&B anytime - just book early as it can fill up quickly, particularly in the holidays.

This is the third visit to Number 5 and excellent as always.Stayed in a single this time but was comfy with a great view of the Abbey.The owners are fantastic and the whole atmosphere is so relaxed. I have stayed in loads of B n B's and the the breakfast here is the best by far, trying to arrange a visit in November for me and some friends as I type, top notch in all areas!

Very lovely guest house. Clean, looked nice, comfy. Had a smashing breakfast. Definitely will be going back. Really friendly owners. Very good value for money. Nicely decorated and some very funny postcards to read. If you go to Whitby, stay here!
