This was our first visit to Whitby where we actually stayed over, and our two days were made all the more enjoyable by being lucky enough to select Launceston Villa as our base. Gill and Martin are the perfect hosts, making the stay feel so relaxing and comfortable, nothing is too much trouble, and they are so accommodating in a very special and personal way that makes you feel immediately at ease in their company.
The accomodation is beautifully decorated, clean and functional with all you could ask for, with tea making facilities, television, hair dryer, electric shaver point, ample storage and an en suite.
There is also a book in your room that contains every available item of information to make your stay satisfying including the menu's of recommended local restauarants together with prices and table booking details, bus timetables, suggested walks etc. etc.
And last but by no means least the breakfast is really the icing on the cake, the full English was cooked and presented perfectly, with a rack of fresh toast, four varieties of cereals are available together with fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, orange and apple juice and coffee or tea all in a buffet style setting, in essence you would be hard pressed to better the quality and quantity of the breakfast anywhere.
Arriving back on our first evening quite wet after a downpour we were met by Gill who took our wet outer garments from us together with our brolley and duly dried them for us ready for the following morning.
After our two days we felt as if we were treated as friends as opposed to guests and I would recommend anyone who wishes to spend some time in the Whitby area to give very serious consideration to Launceston Villa, nothing seems to be too much trouble to Gill and Martin, and we will certainly return when next we are in North Yorkshire
And the simple answer is NO!! we are not on commission, just a very satisfied couple who have had an extremely enjoyable short break made all the better by our choice of accommodation, thank you Gill and Martin.

I selected this B&B after reading reveiws on Trip Advisor and after staying there felt I must write my own review to say that I wholeheartedly agree with them! This is an excellent B&B with the kind of accomodation and service you would expect from a plush hotel. The rooms are elegant, modern, spotlessly clean with high quality furnishings and an amazingly comfy bed. The hosts, Gill and Martin, are lovely people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The breakfast is great with lots of choice - just what you need before a hard day's walking or sightseeing. Location is perfect - about 10 mins out of Whitby centre. We found this was close enough to make getting into Whitby easy but far enough out to feel like you can escape the crowds when you want to. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and wished we could have stayed longer!

We have visited Whitby before, but our experience then was not one we wanted to remember. We love Whitby, so we took to Trip Advisor and found Launceston Villa. What a refreshing change. Our hosts, Gill and Martin made us very welcome. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast was excellant with plenty of choice. We also had private car parking so saving the usual struggle you have in Whitby. We love walking and Gill & Martin were able to give us lots of help and advice. We had a fantastic weekend returning home refreshed and looking forward to another visit to this great B&B.

We only contacted the guest house by telephone, for a two night stay, a few hours before arriving but were still made very welcome. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts excellent. Gill & Martin gave us very useful advice on our plans for our walk.

This hotel was exceptionally clean and the owners were very helpful and gave us loads of information about the area. We stayed in a newly refurbished room which was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and the power shower was a real bonus.
Excellent breakfast and a lot of choice. I would recommend this B&B without hesitation.
