Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2012

My wife & I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this truly marvellous establishment. The owners, Mathew & Craig are excepional hosts. They are welcoming, friendly, informative and thoroughly professional. The property is immaculate with high quality decor and furnishings throughout and it is spotlessly clean. It is located in a really nice part of town, overlooking a lovely park yet only a short distance from all of the major attractions with nice restaurants a matter of minutes away. Our room, the Raj was delightful and tastefully presented with an extremely comfortable bed. Last but certainly not least, the breakfasts are wonderful and catering for our vegetarian diet was absolutely no problem. If we return to Whitby then our first choice place to stay will be Dillons.

we stayed at the Dillons of Whitby for 11 days, what a dangerous thing to to:
we missed it as soon as we left!
we missed Matthew and Craig our fantastic hosts,
We missed their light-hearted friendliness, their warm welcome,
their support, their suggestions,
Matthew singing while not knowing that we were listening,
Craig's funny introduction to Black Pudding, humorously serving breakfast each morning,
giving us a warm-hearted start into the day.
Ah, yes, the breakfast! simply fantastic! showing the same affection to every little detail
you will find wherever you look at.
It's Matthew's Yorkshire Breakfast that gave back our believe in English breakfast.
we miss it, we miss it all, we miss North Yorkshire, we miss England...

One of the many highlights of owning Dillons is that we have the chance to welcome visitors from overseas and share the delights of our beautiful town. We thoroughly enjoyed your stay and found it strange that you were no longer with us for the first few days after your departure. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and we are delighted that your experience was so positive. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Dillons again in the future. Herzlichen Dank!

It is difficult to start a review when the establishment is of such a high quality. The welcome was warm and friendly and the offer of tea/coffee and cake in the airy, light dining room overlooking the park, was greatly appreciated. Our room was a delight, beautifully decorated with quality furnishings, a comfortable bed and a large bathroom again overlooking the park. Craig and Matthew were marvellous hosts and offered us information on Whitby and suggested restaurants which we might have dinner. As with other reviewers our wonderful hosts made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts during our 2 night stay were brilliant with plenty of choice for even the most fussy eater. This is a quality bed and breakfast and a fantastic place to stay and we have already recommended Dillons to others who visit the area regularly. We are already planning a return visit.

We stayed at Dillons 12th - 14th May. Wonderful, personal and warm welcome. Craig and Matthew are perfect hosts and made us feel at home as soon as we walked in the door. We stayed in Masi which was so comfortable and well presented. From the Yorkshire full english to specials at breakfast, everything was delicious and cooked fresh. Both Craig and Matthew were really helpful and knowledgable when recommending places to eat and drink to areas for walking. We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. We love Whitby and we will be back to stay at Dillons. Thanks guys.

We spent two nights at Dillons in the Toulouse room overlooking the Park. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. The bed and pillows were so comfortable! Best nights sleep we have had in ages. This small B&B is an amazing place to stay. We received a wonderful welcome from Craig and the offer of tea and cake was most welcome. Both Craig and Mathew were wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were divine. Cooked to order with plenty of choice. There was a 'Specials' Board as well! We can't recommend this establishment enough. We will definately be returning. Joan, Whitley Bay

What a fantastic find!! gorgeous rooms, gorgeous breakfast and fantastic owners! Craig and Matthew were both brilliant, they were both so helpful, kind and just overall lovely!
We were made to feel very welcome and at home. All the other guests staying seemed just as happy as we did, enjoying the fantastic service.
Both rooms that we stayed in Toulous and Manhattan were both fabulous! Both individually decorated with good style and class.
Thank you very much to Craig and Matthew for making our stay so special.

We spent 2 nights at Dillons in the Manhattan room. We knew this was the smallest room in the house when we booked it and we found it to be fine for our stay. The bed was comfortable, there was enough space for us to have our luggage out and still move easily around the room and the decor is beautiful. This B&B is just a lovely place to be. The house is beautifully decorated and has a very peaceful, serene atmosphere. Craig and Matthew are absolutely brilliant hosts- great company and so helpful with suggestions for sites to visit. They make this fabulous B&B an absolute stand-out. The breakfasts are fantastic and another example of the attention to detail and quality that make this an outstanding place to stay.
