What more could you ask for. Lovely hosts relaxing atmosphere, beautifully clean accomodation and a varied basket of breakfast goodies delivered to your door in the morning,brill. On site parking a real plus and only a short stroll into Whitby with gorgeous eateries and lovely friendly pubs.

Room Tip: Room 1 overlooking front of house

We stayed two nights here and would recommend it for a relaxing stay. The room was spotless and the bed was really comfortable.Loved the breakfast in a basket loads of variety and plenty of it. The house is in keeping with the character and charm of Whitby and the parking arrangements make it easy to get the car in and out if you want to use it unlike some places we have stayed once you park up its a juggling act to get it out again. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here over the May bank holiday week end. The B&B is a beautiful house with lots of character. Only a 10 min walk into Whitby town centre so ideally situated for all the bars and restaurants. Lovely hosts and lovely clean accommodation. Breakfast is continental style and eaten in your room which gives you the option to have a lazy breakfast :) The room we stayed in however didn't have a dining table to eat at just a small coffee table. A small dining table under the window would've been a little more comfortable but this wasn't a major issue. The shower in our room was very noisy and sounded like a hairdryer so we were conscious of disturbing the other guests. In our group there were 8 friends stayed at the hotel and a communal room where we could've sat in the evening and chatted or played cards together would've made our week end break even better. All in all though would recommend this B&B and would stay again

Second time staying and it was just as lovely. We had a tiny room but it was much cheaper than the first stay and we got to stay longer.

Situated very close to Whitby centre so it's an ideal place to stay. The breakfast was wonderful as always and was a perfect way to start the day. Although the room was tiny it was immaculate and nicely furnished.

I loved the privacy of the hotel as you didn't have to worry about when the cleaners were coming in and things, it was your space. It was strange leaving your rubbish and used crockery outside the door and it appearing perfectly clean later on with no human interaction at all. One day we needed more milk for teas and the only number was for the main landline as you walk in so the no contact with the owners at all had its pros and cons. We kept milk from breakfast for teas but there was a small hole in the base and it leaked everywhere but we needed to keep it so put a carrier bag under it! You've got to laugh.

If I were to be pinickity only one bedside lamp worked and the shower was cracked a little bit. The breakfast basket could have more spoons as you have to use the same spoon for cereal and the hard boiled egg!

Overall I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and was really impressed and only have minor criticisms. I don't think I will stay anywhere else in Whitby as this place is so reliable, each room has such a personality too so it doesn't feel samey.

Thank you Elford House!

Stayed here for 5 nights on our first ever visit to Whitby. An absolutely lovely, spacious B&B with -in the case of ours- absolutely massive rooms. The room came complete with a dining area and a great leather sofa aswell as the sleeping area and a nice en-suite and yet the room was still fantastically spacious.
With breakfast delivered to your door in a kind of picnic basket fashion which we found to be excellent you can start the day off at your own pace and not have to worry about rushing down for breakfast!
Parking was excellent and Elford House was greatly situated on the approach into Whitby with only a 5 minute stroll into Whitby itself.

Highly recommended B&B!!!
