“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Booked here because we were going to the Northern Soul Weekender and did not want to be messing around looking for taxis. Really glad that we did the place is spotless, the breakfast is wonderful and Janet and Alan couldn't have been friendlier. I was a bit dubious about writing too much because I thought that we would not be able to get back next year but Janet has us marked down for the next five years so I can tell the truth about this wonderful place. Book, you will not regret it.

Room Tip: The Luna Piena is an Italian restaurant in Whitby and the food is some of the best that we have ever...

The exterior of this guest house is unprepossessing but inside you will find a warm welcome, a pleasant room with a comfy bed, good quality bed linen and an excellent breakfast. I liked the little touches like proper linen napkins and fresh flowers on the tables. It is well situated for the town centre - a 5 min walk.There is no parking unfortunately, but you can park just round the corner at the roadside. We did not find this to be a problem. We do not often stay in B&B's but if this is the standard we probably will now.!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back probably quieter except for the seagulls!

We stayed at the Florance for 2 nights. Never been to Whitby before. We had a lovely walm welcome when we arrived and was shown to a temp. Parking spot. The room was lovely and spotless. Bed was well comfy. We had room 6. Which was the whole of the top floor We had a private bathroom which again was spotless. Breakfast....... Well what can i say..... Perfect, you choose what you want on your full English and it is cooked to perfection. beautiful dinning room with lots of space between the tables. Dinner at the Magpie Cafe was out of this world. All in all. Can't wait to go back. OH. BY THE WAY WE HAVE TATOOS AND PIERCINGS AND WE WERE TREATED WITH A WALM WELCOME AND HAD A GREAT TIME...............

The B&B was ideal location for every requirement! The hosts are the most lovely, warm and friendly! The breakfast was divine, the best breakfast we have had in a B&B (and we have been to a lot).
Highly recommended! Will defo be coming back! :D

Room Tip: We had the ensuite room with the small sitting area, which suited us very well. Get to breakfast fir...
