When you stay at this B&B you will find Vanessa and Martin, the owners, willing to please and nothing appears to be too much trouble. Lots of little touches in the room - the coffee maker was a wonderful asset. The breakfast was excellent, generous portions, which really set you up for the day. Over the years I have stayed...

Having found the hotel through other sites, decided to book on a four-night stay. My initial impressions from the original source did not disappoint and I totally enjoyed both the accommodation and hospitality. Would definitely stay there again

Just had two wonderful nights staying here. All previous reviews sum up Rosslyn House perfectly. The rooms are spacious, well laid out and spotlessly clean. There are complimentary toiletries, tea and coffee with milk in the fridge, TV. Breakfast is excellent with the choice of whatever you want. It is a lazy 10 minute stroll into town and Martin and...

So, B & B isn't something that we're used to; there have been the odd weekend on the south coast at bank holidays but nothing to write home about. We thought a weekend away from London would be a good thing as we've both been working crazy hours and, from a recommendation from a friend chanced upon Rosslyn House in...

We had planned to go to the Lake District but cold windy weather meant we moved our location to Whitby. We arrived unannounced on a wet Wednesday evening and were warmly welcomed. The local information we got from our hosts was very useful and saved us getting very wet finding a place to eat and drink. Breakfast was lovely and...

Our second stay at Rosslyn House, and once again it was very enjoyable. There should be a 5+ rating available. The breakfast was excellent, and we could not ask for more in our rooms. A nice touch was the fresh milk in each room's fridge. A short stroll to the harbour and everything there. Thoroughly recommended.
