“2 nights at Rosslyn felt like a much longer break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Patsy and Jo have created the place that they would choose to stay in if they went away.
Everything in the communal areas (breakfast room and guests mini kitchen) has been chosen with care to meet the needs of their guests for optimal comfort and enjoyment. Our room was tasteful and coordinated and sooooooo comfortable. Being on the top floor, the stairs could be a challenge but there is a chair, strategically placed for a breather before the final haul. (and we were forewarned)
Very highly recommended - you would be hard pushed to find a better breakfast or more amenable and responsive hosts. Nothing was too much trouble - it is clear that they love what they do.
Will definitely book here on my next return to Whitby.

Room Tip: Lovely room in the attic but need to be ok with stairs. (Room 6)

What can i say, the Guest house is just beautiful, the girls are great,(Patsy and Jo) the location could not be better,1 min walk one way and you are at the sea front, 5min walk the other way through the town you are at the Harbour. You will never get bored here, there is so much to see and do. Our room was at the front of the house and was spotless, with a lovely big TV en suite tea making bits etc, and the bed was so so comfortable,and its very quiet at night, even though as i said we were at the front of the house. There is even a kitchen for the guests to use with a microwave, fridge, kettle, tea coffee and milk in for guests to use, also plates, cutlery,glasses, knives and forks etc washing up facilities and table and chairs if you want to bring a take away back.Or if your going out for the day you can make a packed lunch up and you can quite safely leave your bits in the fridge.We have never had this before in any other B&B we have stayed in over the years, it would have made things so much easier and cheaper for us when our children were younger when we had our days out if i could have made a packed lunch up. Brilliant idea girls! Last but not least the Breakfast, Its Great,and so much,there is fresh fruit cereal and yogurt then a mega fry up if that's what you want, cooked beautifully, or fish, eggs, toast the list is endless. So if you want value for your money don't think twice about staying here you wont be disappointed. Well Done Patsy and Jo. Well be back!!!!! You can count on it.xx

Room Tip: rooms at the front of the house are south facing. Still very quiet at night.

Just returned from a weekend in whitby, the weather was really kind to us. We were fortunate to stay at this lovely place. We used the outside area sitting with a few bottles of wine soaking up the sunshine. This was our second visit to this hotel Patsy and Jo are great hosts. The breakfast was all that you needed good quality food and plenty of it. This hotel is very relaxed and clean, just a little walk to town, 5mins. It was a pleasure again and we will be back. Thanks Maggie and Gareth

Rosslyn House is a beautifully decorated and comfortable B & B , rooms cosy and tastefully furnished. Service is excellent, first time we've stayed anywhere and the owners have offered to take luggage to our room, not even in some of the more expensive hotels we've stayed in, Breakfast is good and beautifully cooked and nothing is too much trouble for the co-owners Jo and Patsy.
If you want to visit Whitby , then don't forget to use the Rosslyn House .
Look forward to recommending you to friends and family.

A short family trip to east Yorkshire we visited Whitby and the Rosslyn House, we received a warm welcome, shown to our rooms, with an adjoined room with bunks for the kids, very clean good linen too, en-suite also immaculately clean, there is also a fridge and guest kitchen, tasteful decor you'll see the pics on their web site

Good location for center of Whitby for boutique shopping, pubs (with local music too) as well as the restaurants around the marina and harbor.
Patsy and Jo recommended a restaurant at the harbor and it was also fab, and a couple of pubs on the way home all welcoming

a complete nights sleep no disturbances

So that just leaves Breakfast, amazing! the usual cereals, juices However the Full English (Yorkshire) great local sausage and bacon eggs how you like them or alternative options Line caught Haddock,. or local Kippers,

this just left a fond farewell

just a shame that we were on such a short trip!
