Launceston Villa Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #45 of 154 Whitby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2011

Your typical english B&B done to a very good standard.
Easy to find B&B with directions from the confirmation email. On arrival there was a car park at the back which walking around Whitby is quite important as a lot don't seem to have one and parking isn't probably thre easiest in the middle of town. Friendly welcome from Gill and Martin.
Room is your typical B&B. Modern furnishings,spotless, good size room, facing front of house but not really noisy to affect your nights sleep ( i tend to sleep lightly as well) and not too hot in the night despite some very warm days when we were there. If there was one complaint in relation to the room was that the bathroom wasn't the biggest clearly being a more recent addition to a period building. A minor point compared to whole experience.
Breakfast excellent. Local produce cooked very well in big portion size. The fruit salad in the buffet delection was frsh each morning and really nice
Short walk into town down a hill which isn't really an issue as if you have problems with a slope Whitby isn't really the place for you.
Great start to our holiday, would happily stay there again and compared to some of the other B&Bs we have stayed at fantastic value for money.

Greens restaurant great for a meal in town

We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay here, Gill and Martin are fabulous hosts, extremely welcoming and very helpful. Lovely breakfasts with a good choice and a beautiful comfy room. Also they have excellent parking. So a big thank you, we will definately be recommending this B&B to all we know and look forward to returning in the near future.

Whenever we visit Whitby we always stay at Launceston Villa, Gill & Martin
both make you so welcome.Nothing is too much trouble for them and everything is
so perfect.The room we stayed in was beautfully decorated out and spotlessly clean
and a credit to them both.
Breakfast caters for all tastes and was first class, varied and plentiful.
We can recommend Launceston Villa as the place to stay, you will not be
disappointed,and feel sure once you have stayed you will be back.

I can truly say that Launceston villa is at the very top in the rankings of a B&B experience.
The villa is excellent, immaculately clean and very elegant. Breakfast set you up for the day. Plenty of parking, (no need to fight for a space). Would i recommend the villa to friends- Yes certainly. Would i stay again - Yes definitely.

Launceston Villa is one of those gems that you actually look forward to coming back to at the end of a packed day. Martin and Jill have obviously taken great pride in their b&b. Everything is spotlessly clean and immaculate, and real thought has been given to the needs of their guests. The personal touches in the room rival those of the most expensive business and leisure hotels, delivered with the genuine care and forethought that hotel chains couldn't hope to match. The breakfast was excellent, both in choice and quality and. given that we stayed for two nights, we can also say "consistently good". Martin and Jill were ideal hosts - knowledgeable about the area, happy to make recommendations, and happy to give as much or as little attention as we needed. Next time we come to this area, we won't need to research b&b's first. Thanks for a great stay; we'd have no concerns in recommending you. Rick and Lorraine

We stayed at this lovely bed & breakfast for 2 nights, Gill and Martin are very welcoming, knowledgeable about the area and made us feel at home. Everything was spotlessly clean, a very comfortable bed and delicious breakfasts that kept us going all day.
We certainly will be returning and have no hesitation in recommending Launceston Villa to all we know.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this B&B whilst visiting Whitby, what a good choice we couldn't have wished for more. The hosts Martin and Gill are a lovely couple who care that their guests have an enjoyable break with them. Good choice of breakfasts, spotless nicely decorated room with plenty of local information available, and recommendations on where to eat. We had a great ride on the steam bus called Elizabeth which lasted about 20 minutes which took us around the town. Would definately recommend a visit to Whitby, well done to Martin and Gill for such a lovely place to stay.
