White Rose Guest House
Ranked #8 of 19 Filey B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said..........?
This is my third stay at this truly wonderful B&B and each visit has been a "FIRST CLASS" service.
Paul and Caroline are doing a fabulous job at providing their guests with a touch of luxury, comfort and charm.
The other day my husband and I were watching the television program " Three in a bed " ..........you know the one about the best B&B and we both agreed that the hosts needed to come to the White Rose and see how its done by the " professionals".
I'm already planning to return in a couple of months and I cant wait.
I do have one complaint however...............I NEVER WANT TO GO HOME!
Thanks again guys , see you in October.

The White Rose gust house from the outside looks like any other seaside B&B, however the appearance is really deceptive. The public rooms have been modernised in a cafe style, and our bedroom was large, airy and contemporary matching anything you see in glossy magazines and travel pages that review expensive hotels. Spotlessly clean and comfortable throughout. We were welcomed with a pot of tea and a chat which was very welcome after a long drive and a short stop in crowded Scarborough. Filey was clean and peaceful and we would love to return. An excellent breakfast was cooked to order from the large and varied menu. Could not fault anything. Dedicated car parking behind the house was a bonus.

We stayed Friday to Sunday. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The food was very good - warning - a stack of pancakes really is a stack! The proprietors are friendly and helpful. We couldn't have wanted for anything else. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to others going to Filey.

After staying at the White Rose once before, we enjoyed it so much that we had to book again as soon as we could. Unfortunately, my work commitments changed, and our plans to visit again had to be put on hold. Roll on July this year, and plans for my birthday start flying around. No.1 on our list was to fulfill the second visit to Filey, and White Rose Guest House. Turned out to be the best plan we had, as whilst I was busy working here in Manchester, Paul & Caroline had also busy working on refurbishing the guest house! We arrived to find a "refreshed" White Rose, not that it needed it, but these guys are perfectionists! Our room (5) was spotless as usual, all the detail was there, and then some! First morning, and down to breakfast we go, as well as the usual cereals, fruit juice and yoghurts etc, it seems that Paul has been honing his cheffing skills since our last visit! (Thought I was the chef around here Paul? Ha Ha!!) The main breakfast menu is the same, but with some very interesting and well thought out tweaks! Caroline also provided some lovely cafetieres of real coffee, which on this occasion was "Taylors Lazy Sunday" a personal favourite of mine! There is also a list of different and very interesting Teas to choose from as well. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys, so once again, we can honestly say that this really is the Best In Filey! Visit other guest houses at your own peril! You will always come back to the White Rose Guest House! I know we will be returning again... Very soon!

Room Tip: Couples should always try and book either room 2 or room 5, as these are the ones with the larger sh...

This fantastic guest house ticked all of the boxes for us and was the perfect base for a great weekend in Filey.
Typically we left it to the last minute to find somewhere to stay in Filey, and we were very lucky that the White Rose had a spare room! We were in room 6 up on the 3rd floor and although I wouldn't recommend it to people who struggle with steps, if you are fit and able then it's a delightful room.
They've got all of the details spot on here - nice decor & furniture, charming 'reclaimed' doors and wonderful handmade wooded beds (which Paul designed himself). And best of all everywhere is ABSOLUTELY SPOTLESS...
This is not a B&B that looks tired and used, it looks like it has literally just opened for business and the welcome and friendly nature of Paul & Caroline made us feel like we were the very first guests to stay there.
As for the breakfast - we've never enjoyed anything as tasty and well presented as the full breakfast, and my wife loved the smoked salmon. A great way to start the day.
The guest house is a gentle 5 minute walk from the centre of Filey, the beach or the train station and is in a nice, quiet street - they've even got extra parking out the back if you can't get a space on the road.
I would highly recommend staying at the White Rose Guest House in Filey because you won't be disappointed - it is undoubtedly the best b&b in Filey.

Another enjoyable trip to the White Rose. We were welcomed like old friends by Paul and Caroline with a welcome tray of hot drinks. All the decorations in our room still looked as new even though we are a year on. It was an expensive stay last year as the bathroom was so nice that we are now changing ours at home! The pancakes for breakfast......still superb. See you next year.

Paul and Caroline are a very friendly and helpful couple who will go out of their way to help the guests. Nothing is too much trouble.
We stayed in a King Size room 2, spacious with 2 large windows giving a lot of light. Large wardrobe and drawer space. Ensuite is larger than most we have stayed in with 2 sinks and a larger shower cubicle. Very comfortable bed. Large flat screen television with freeview. Tea/Coffee making facilities very welcoming after a day out and about.
The breakfasts are extremely good with various choices from full Yorkshire breakfasts to pancakes.As much tea/coffee and toast as you can eat.

Room Tip: We stayed in the King Size room number 2 - it was fantastic!
