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. The grandparents were in the loft and unfortunately did not get the same sort of space (maybe avoid that room if offered it!?!) The owner was attentive and helpful,...

Number 5 has so much going for it but is badly let down in one major area...the room. We booked two rooms for ourselves and our new grandchild (she let her parents come along with her!). On arrival the owner was most helpful by offering a parking permit so we could immediately enjoy the weather down in Whitby town. On...

I had some overseas visitors and booked No. 5 for them and myself. Good decision, location very good, spotlessly clean, excellent fresh breakfast. My room was very quiet (No. 1) quite spacious for this type of house. Didn't get to meet Mary, but Jane was lovely, helpful and informative. 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...

Id cant reccomend Number 5 enough,spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished throughout, perfect finishing touches, the breakfast is almost a banquet & delicious. We visited at easter & each breakfast table had mini eggs for guests which was a lovely gesture. A fridge on the landing with cold bottles of water cans of coke etc (a small charge) perfect for hangovers 😃

Spent one night in this B&B. I found it a struggle to decide whether to rate it 3 or 4. There are some fantastic points but a couple of negatives. The fantastic; Very clean Friendly welcoming hosts Fabulous breakfast, probably best we've had from a B&B Lovely touches like natural toiletries in bathroom and help yourself fridge on the landing...
