Just spent 2 nights in Whitby at the White Linen Guest House and would definitely recommend. It is ideally situated close to the harbour. We stayed in the Havana room on the first floor, the room is spacious and comfortable, the four poster bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spotlessly clean.

The attention to high quality in all the elements of the hospitlaity is excellent. The refurbishment of the Georgian house is tasteful and luxurious. The choice at breakfast was extensive and the food was beautifully prepared, from the freshly made quiches to the delicious cooked breakfast. The welcome was warm. We would highly recommend this guest house.
