“A lovely little find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

We have just had a 2 night stay in the Toulouse room. Craig and Matthew were excellent hosts, and we really felt well looked after. They have a fantastic knowledge of the area, walks, bars and restaurants. The bed was really comfortable, and bathroom luxurious. The TV had an inbuilt DVD player that Matthew lent us a copy of Dracula to watch! You do hear the main road, however it's impossible to avoid in such a small town. The hotel is only about 10 mins walk to the restaurants. In fact everything's within walking distance which was great. Having stayed in many hotels across the country, we were most impressed with the breakfast selection. There is a different special every morning, and being used to having our usual full english, we decided to branch out and try their vegetarian full english on one morning which was delicious (3 types of vegetarian sausages! we had the glamorgan sausages which were very tasty). The other breakfast I had the porridge with banana and raisins and my fiance had the kipper - we were both impressed! I would thoroughly recommend staying here, and we would happily return. Many thanks to Matthew and Craig for their great hospitality.

Thank you for your detailed and thoughful review. It was a delight having you stay with us and we are thrilled that you had a positive experience. As we say in our marketing materials, at Dillons breakfast is the most improtant meal of the day and we enjoy using fresh, locally sourced produce in both the regular menu and daily specials. Being walking distance to the multitude of great bars and eateries is a real bonus and one which the majority of guests really appreciate. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Dillons of Whitby in the future and once again, many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us.

Had a 2 night stay with friends, so saw 2 rooms. Choice of rooms & decor - both superb with comfortable beds and everything you would need, although our two were a little too small to provide 2 comfortable chairs and one en-suite could have benefitted from a small shelf by the basin, but otherwise attention to detail superb. Great welcome and ongoing genuine concern to please us during our stay. Good choices for breakfast, superbly cooked and presented. No hesitation in recommending this B&B and would stay again.

Room Tip: Look at the accurate descriptions on the website - each has individual character.

From the moment you enter Dillons you are aware of the unique ambiance of the place. Superbly decorated and appointed. Warm and friendly with service that most other establishments can only dream of. Spotlessly clean and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
I have stayed in so called Middle East 7 star hotels but Dillons beats them hands down.

Our 'spur of the moment' stop over in Whitby was made complete by fantastic attentive hosts at Dillons.

Both of you made our stay in Whitby very comfortable.

Dillons shows care and attention to decor. The surroundings are very relaxing and plush with great en-suite rooms.

The food at breakfast was brilliant. Having a range of tasty food to choose from is always good, and everything was well presented. I had Whiby's famous kippers that raised a few eyebrows of surprise. They were amazing. We will definately come back again and pass recommendations about Dillons to all our friends.

My husband Terry and I have just returned from 2 nights stay at Dillons and have to say that it is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Mathew & Craig are the perfect hosts and their attention to detail is second to none. We stayed in the Troon room and it was just perfect for us; the most comfortable bed ever and the bedding + goose-down pillows definitely had the WOW factor! The breakfast choice is unbelievable and they even offer a daily special too. We definitely recommend Dillons to everyone - you will not be disappointed.

Dillons of Whitby is a pearl in the Oyster of this wonderful and fascinating seaside town.
We spent a very romantic night in the Masi Room which is beautifully out-fitted and the attention to detail is second to none. Mathew and Craig made us feel very welcome and were able to provide us with some great tips and information about Whitby,what to see and do and where to eat. Breakfast was a treat with homemade museli and scrummy cheesy scrambled egg.....just a small selection of what was to be enjoyed. We would well recommend Dillons and hope to make a return visit before too long.

Many thanks for your review. We are delighted that the cheesy eggs hit the mark! As you suggest we are very lucky to live in such a wonderful seaside town with the wealth of good bars and eateries within walking distance of the front door. Add to this the range of festivals, events and tourist sites and you're never short of something to see or do. We hope to see you back in Whitby soon.

Thank you both for choosing to stay at Dillons during the Scooter Rally and posting your review. All told, what a brilliant weekend! For us (and our guests we hope) breakfast is the most important meal of the day so we're glad it lived up to expectations. We're thrilled you enjoyed the luxury of our master suite - but remember, there's another 4 individually styled rooms for you to try! We hope to welcome you back to Dillons in the near future.
