Beautiful house with very polite and friendly owners. The breakfast was delicious. My only negative feedback would be that I was in room 6 which was very small room with the shower at the end of the bed. For £72 for a single bed I did expect better. Don't let this detract from staying there. As B&B's go it is...

I always stay here when I visit beautiful Whitby as this place is warm and welcoming. The breakfast gets better with every stay with plenty of options. The owners are constantly striving to improve their offer, and I always leave with a heavy heart but a cheerful thought that it won't hopefully be too long until I am back in...

From our warm welcome at the start we had a lovely experience at Rosslyn House. Martin and Vanessa could not have done more to make guests comfortable. We were provided with every amenity and the most comfortable and cosy duvet ever! Lots of choice for breakfast the poached eggs were perfect. Would love to return, 5 stars well deserved.

It would be unfair to fully review as I have nothing, of a similar nature, with which I could compare. The room was tiny (it was a single), the shower and sink (not a separate bathroom) fittings were rusting. The room in which I was staying (6) was next to the kitchen so I was awoken at the start of...

Dear Mr Tew, we were clearly dissappointed to receive such a low scoring review in respect of your fleeting one night stay with us. Room 6 is indeed a single room on the ground floor and adjacent to the kitchen. Breakfast service begins at 8.30am, prior to that there is one person in the kitchen from just before 8.00am and...

This was our third trip to Whitby in so many years, but our first stay at the Rosslyn, and it didn't disappoint.
