Rosewood Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #22 of 155 Whitby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We stayed there over the goth weekend and it is an excellent B&B. Freda and Dave are lovely and welcoming. Two of the nicest people we've met. We had tea and scones when we arrived. The room was very nice and spacious as was the bathroom. Comfortable bed. A varied selection of teas, coffee and even Horlicks in the room and plenty of storage space for clothes. Many toiletries in the bathroom if you forget anything. The breakfasts were really good. Well cooked and kept us full up for hours. Only a short walk into town, we didn't need to use the car to get around. Nice quiet area. We would love to stay there again sometime when we next deicide to visit Whitby.

Just home from our 3rd stay at Rosewood this year - simply, THE BEST place to stay for a relaxing, homely break whilst visiting Whitby.
Accomodation is first class - the breakfasts, even better!!.
Rooms very comfortable with huge ensuite bathroom. Everything is provided, no worries about forgetting your toiletries.
Freda and Dave are just brilliant in providing happy memories of another wonderful stay at Rosewood.

I am not the best of travellers and so it was a pleasure to stay once again at Rosewood.

I was in Whitby from A late Wednesday in October (23rd) to very early Monday morning (28th)and stayed for five nights.

The accomodation is large and comfortable and the breakfasts are ideal for an Autumn Whitby - substantial, healthy (if you go for the fruit options which I almost never do) and the welcome tea and coffee with scones is a welcome touch when you arrive especially after a long coach journey from London.

I phoned ahead to let Freda know we wer arriving at the Coach Stop and she had the tea and coffee ready for us as we walked through the door.

There is fresh milk in a jug in a small refridgerator in the room every day and a host of options for beverages.

We were visiting the Whitby Pavilion Theatre and this venue is under ten minutes from the venue so the location was perfect.

The hosts were great organising a taxi so we could make out 7am coach and also advising on cheap (and more importantly) vegetarian places to eat in Whitby.

Recommended.

We arrived late, but Freda was there with a cup of tea and scones and helped us to our room. The room was clean and warm, and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a really good size - the shower was very good - and there were plenty of bath and shower products; we didn't use the bath as the hot water wasn't available at times we were in the B&B - but that wasn't a problem.

The breakfasts were amazing - Freda's fruits soaked in different teas are wonderful (she willingly shares her recipes too!). We had to leave very early on the last day and Freda and Dave made us breakfast and sent us off with a packed lunch for our journey. They are so kind and nothing is too much trouble!

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Both rooms are great for couples or solo travellers.

A fantastic welcome from Freda and Dave. Just had weekend in Whitby and stayed at Rosewood. It was a beautiful, clean, warm place to stay, double ensuite with loads of space, made to feel so welcome by Freda and Dave who would do anything for you. Really good value, Freda's breakfast fruit and compotes are to die for!Dave's cooked breakfast will keep you going all day! Nothing is too much trouble!If you want to stay somewhere where you are made to feel special, this is the place for you!!Anywhere else is just average!! Highly recommended!

We went last weekend and stay at Rosewood bed & breakfast. The bedroom & en suite was so lovely and comfort. Also Dining room looks very nice and lots of Victorian dolls. Our landlady are very friendly and warm.

The breakfast was very nice anything to ask for any request food as fresh fruit, natural yoghurt or fruit with yoghurt & granolas in small glass dishes, full English or kippers with poached eggs or scrambled eggs also can have vegetarian breakfast.

We would like to stay again in future.

My wife and I have just returned from a lovely weekend at the Rosewood B & B in Whitby. When I say that the owners Freda and Dave cannot do enough for you is an understatement, this wonderful couple are an absolute asset to Whitby. The rooms have everything you could think of (and some things you might not think you need). Everything from the tea and scones on arrival, the advice on where to eat to the magnificent breakfasts prepared by Dave. Freda and Dave's passion for their business and their guests shows as soon as you step through the door. We will definitely be back next year and won't stay anywhere else in Whitby again.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms, one to the front of the property and one to the rear - both are a good siz...
