“launceston villa b&b-a little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

I wanted a nice couple of days in Whitby with my wife and was lucky enough to find this first class accommodation.I could not fault the property for décor,cleanliness or service.The owners Jamie and Donna were friendly,helpful and obviously take pride in owning their guesthouse and wait till you try the full breakfast.It is little wonder that they have few vacancies.
Whitby centre is a pleasant 15 minute walk away.

Room Tip: If you have problems climbing stairs try for a first floor room.

Donna and Jamie made our visit to Whitby a fantastic break.
Breakfast was a delicious start to the day - any requests were catered for. The room was immaculate, no shortage of hangers and wardrobe space. Wi-Fi very useful, as were the tips for local attractions.
Short walk down into the town, past the lovely Pannett Park.
The walk back took a few minutes longer, but we had usually had a busy day walking as we left the car in the car park behind the house, plenty of room there.
Truly an unforgettable holiday

Room Tip: Rooms at the front look out on the road, but this quietens down after 8.30 pm

Donna and Jamie have formed a wonderful B&B with nice rooms, a great cooked breakfast and a personal atmosphere with laughter and quick remarks making you feel at home.

The B&B has got private parking, and the town center offering a great variaty of restaurants and shops is within walking distance.

It's a perfect place to stay enjoying Whitby or exploring the wonderful countrysite of The North Yorkshire Moors.

Well what can I say, Jamie and Donna have made Launceston Villas into a fantastic B&B,my husband and I stayed from Friday to Sunday 22 - 24 February, there are some lovely little touches like the DVD TV with a rack of DVD's in the hall to choose from, WiFi, lovely breakfast, nothing is too much trouble,my husband and I went out for the day and on our return the room had been cleaned, and there were fresh towels on the bed.The room (3) was lovely warm and cosy. Whitby town is a short stroll,all in all a lovely little gem in the heart of Whitby.

This has to be the cleanest B&B we have ever stayed in. Great breakfast, very well appointed and spotlessly clean rooms. Rear off street parking and close enough to the town centre and harbour to walk there even if you are on the wrong side of 60. WiFi available in the room, comfortable beds and very good value for money.

Many thanks

Chris, Anne, Lee & Jayne

Have stayed in quite a few b & b's over the years but this one is brilliant. The rooms are spot on and very warm (stayed in a few that don't put the heating on). The last time we had breakfasts like that were when we went to Southern Ireland you don't need anything to eat until late afternoon. Cannot praise Jamie and Donna enough.
