Florence Guest House
Ranked #74 of 152 Whitby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2013

sorry for delay had trouble getting on to trip Advisor .from a very wet start in June things got better on arrival at Florence, Janet and Alan are superb hosts of this guest house immaculately clean and breakfast to die for (probably would if i stayed for a long time) sets you up for the day. if you need to know anything about Whitby just ask. no parking of course being so close to Centre but 150 yards up to mini roundabout to the side of Pannet park free all time on street parking all the best to Alan and Janet

If there is a best guest house competition in the UK the Florence will win it every time. This is our second visit and it really is superb. We recently stayed in a hotel in Venice, post cruise, and the cost was FIVE times what we paid at the Florence but we did not have tea and coffee making facilities, we did not have biscuits, we did not have a power shower, we did not have the best breakfast we have ever tasted and we did not have Janet, the owner of the Florence. You can book the Florence with complete confidence, the Florence really is superb.

Room Tip: Try and get room five.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay - May 28th and 31st - at the Florence and can honestly recommend this guest house to anyone. Janet and Alan are very friendly hosts, nothing is too much trouble, all rooms are very clean and extremely well furnished. The owners invest heavily in their guest house and it shows. The breakfasts are absolutely wonderful (definitely the very best that we have ever had !!), they both clean the rooms, so they are definitely "hands-on" hosts; and everything is all very organised and tidy. The only (very minor) gripe was that the street is one of the main thoroughfares into the town centre from the harbour side; and sometimes some revellers going back and forth can be noisy, but this is typical of a seaside town in 2013 I guess, and, of course, no fault of the hosts. That said, you have a wonderful view of Pannett Park opposite; and the guest house is only 5 mins walk from the town, with all the restaurants and ameneties, so it couldn't be handier, really. All in all, 5 stars !! Well done Janet and Alan -please keep up the good work and we will definitely return to see you again later in the year...Lesley and Christopher.

An absolutely beautiful B&B, possibly one of the best I've ever stayed in. The hosts Janet and Alan are lovely people and made us feel extremely welcome. The Florence is a converted Victorian style house so is quite big with high ceilings. The decor is very much in keeping with the period of the property so feels very cosy. There is no parking due to the style of the property but Janet did point is in the right direction to find free parking up the road once we had dropped off our bags. To be honest we didn't use the car all weekend anyway as the main attractions of Whitby are within walking distance. We stayed in a double room on the first floor. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfy. There is a guide to all Whitby attractions in the room with print outs of local information, history and even bus timetables. The breakfast is out of this world- nothing is too much trouble and everything cooked to specific liking. Tips: I would definitely recommend a trip on the open top tour bus to discover free sights of Whitby and hear the history at various points. You can hop on and off at various points throughout the day. The Magpie fish and chip shop is also a must.
I would highly recommend The Florence to anyone wishing to stay in a comfy, cosy and spotlessly clean B&B with very welcoming hosts. Many thanks for making our weekend so enjoyable.

We have just got back from Whitby Goth Weekend and I have to say this is the best B&B I've stayed at in 7 years of attending the event bi-annually! Perfect hosts, perfect rooms, clean and tidy and the breakfast is amazing! So much so we're booked in already for the two events next year! Thank you Janet and Alan for making our weekend all the better!
