“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

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

Came up to Whitby for the scooter rally. Booked for the first time at the Rosewood. and was initially impressed by the little extras that are provided. However, my partner and I felt somewhat overwhelmed by the over tentative hostess. On our final night i was actually left upset by the host David.
I had come back to the room prior to my partner as i felt unwell and had left the front door on the latch so my partner could not get in (we were given one bunch of keys) as i knew he was only going to be 30 minutes behind me.
Dave raised his voice at me and was extremely confrontational. I apologised without thinking to receive the reply "i don't care how sorry you are" you could have had us cleared out"

As a couple in our mid forties with responsible careers, we do not wish to be made to feel like fourteen year olds living with our parents when we come away. I am a respectful person and the could have discreetly spoke to us about it, but this was raised the next morning in front of other guests
The next morning i wished to sit quietly and eat my breakfast but this was monopolised by the hostess who was very friendly but i wished to eat quietly. Guests should be left alone at their mealtimes

Stayed at Rosewood the weekend before easter. Its just 2mins to the cliff edge( bit longer to get down the path to the beach, but the view is beautiful! ), 10 mins into town. Great pub and restaurant on the corner of the street, so a pretty great location. The b&b itself is lovely, the downstairs reflects the owner's character and is very welcoming (complete with real log fire and scones on arrival -yum!). Rooms are very spacious and the ensuite was huge! Lovely breakfast, many tastes catered for and freda didnt mind what you had for breakfast, she took your order the day before so it was freshly cooked when you got to breakfast.
Would definitely stay here again, Freda and Dave are lovely people, and very welcoming.

Stayed for three nights and first time ever offered tea and scones upon arrival.Shown to our room by Dave,and impressed with room size and standard of extras (including mini fridge).The bathroom was a good size with a large shower cubicle and bath.The full English breakfast was very good with all sorts of compotes on offer as well as home made jam's and marmalade.As an added bonus on return in the afternoon was a delicious cake.
I said to Freda if we stayed any longer we would need a bigger car to go home in!
Well positioned for beach and town and Freda was able to give good local knowledge for meals out,pub's etc.
The bedroom was always nice and warm and slept well in a nice comfortable bed.
This was our first stay but it will not be our last, and thank Freda and Dave for making the stay special.

Room Tip: Both rooms well proportioned and would be happy in anyone.

Great 3 night stay , Freda & Dave very nice hosts, very clean , great rooms, filling breakfasts with lots of choice. Located in a convenient location only 5 min from beach or 10 min walk to town. Nice touches with scones on arrival and choice of cakes in your rooms on returning back at night. Had a great stay in Whitby lots to do , some great friendly pubs and very good live music in the evenings. Value for money stay , give it a go they really do look after you.
Paul + Yvonne.

Room Tip: Only two rooms, both very nice. Book early to avoid missing out.

Most definitely THE BEST B&B we have ever stayed in! Freda & Dave are fabulous hosts, nothing is too much trouble, great breakfast with so much choice, Freda's soaked fruit, fruit compot, home made jam & marmalade full English, the choice is far too extensive to print! Our room was very nicely kitted out with everything you need, toiletries and the biggest selection of tea, coffee cocoa etc. It's the extra touches that made Rosewood so special though, like the scones, tea and roaring fire on arrival & the cake in the afternoon, little chocolates in our room & Freda's friendly chatter and area knowledge. It was a short stroll to the town and a few hundred yards to the seafront. we will most definitely be visiting again, can't wait. Thanks Freda & Dave for a most enjoyable stay - Linda & Gary
