We have just returned from a brief visit to Whitby, staying just one night at Rosewood with Frieda and Dave. We received a hearty welcome and were offered tea and scones immediately. As we were going into town for the must-have Whitby fish and chips we declined but what a great offer! Dave showed us to our room which was immaculately clean and sumptuous and contained every extra you could possibly think of. Fresh milk in a small fridge was certainly a welcome change and an excellent range of teas and coffees as well as bedtime drinks were provided. The bathroom was beautiful with an incredible range of toiletries in attractive bottles and a bath and separate shower.
Frieda told us we could have anything for breakfast which we ordered the night before. She also provided a selection of compotes and marinated dried fruits as well as a choice of cereals and a glass of guava juice! We had chosen a full English breakfast and it was certainly hearty and well cooked and presented. Plenty of tea and coffee was offered and toast and home made marmalade completed a very adequate start to the day!
Frieda was very helpful, getting us a taxi into town (my husband has impaired mobility) and Dave carried our case up and down the stairs when we arrived and left.
There is no way in which you could fault anything at this lovely, friendly B & B. The person who complained about being "told off" by Dave for leaving the front door on the latch should have known better if she was in her forties and had a "responsible" job (let's hope it doesn't necessitate writing good English!). Would she leave her own front door on the latch in the middle of the night? I have to say also that Frieda didn't chatter all through our breakfast - we chatted about various things before and after breakfast but we were left to enjoy our breakfast apart from the delivery of toast etc and offers of more tea or coffee etc.
I think it is very unfair of the person who left the door open to leave such a bad review because Frieda and Dave clearly take enormous pride in their B & B and would bend over backwards to help in any way to make anyone's stay as enjoyable as possible. They simply do not wish to be burgled when the insurance company would dismiss their claim because some stupid guest had given free entry to the perpetrator!
Thank you Frieda and Dave x
