Visited whitby again and stayed at Number 5. What a nice place. Jane and Mary make you feel at home and make you welcome. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is amazing and sets you up for the day - you'll not leave hungry. The walk back after dinner in the town can be a bit challenging as it's...

We visited with our young baby and her grandparents. Only stopping for one night we found our room to be spacious and comfortable, with a lovely balcony to sit out on.

If parking is required they can help with a temporary parking...

The description on their website do not match the reality. Very Very small room, more like a cell with as much character as a cell. Avoid any rooms in the roof - no way was our room a double. Breakfast was excellent though. The owners were very friendly. Parking nearby is a nightmare.

After a break of 3 years to discover cities anew we returned to Whitby and Number 5 again, we were not disappointed. This B&B is immaculate from top to bottom, spotlessly clean and...
