“Dillons of Whitby”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

One of the best b&bs we have stayed at. We were lucky enough to find it on the internet from Australia. Mathew and Craig are the perfect hosts. We stayed in the Masi room and were impressed with the cleanliness and the decor. The breakfasts were superb and their attention to each guest was great. Nothing was too much trouble. The location is excellent only being a few minutes walk to the town centre. We would thoroughly recommend Dillons to everyone.

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed with any of the rooms.

Just returned from a wonderful weekend stay at Dillons, excellent B & B would definitely recommend to others. Ideal location.

Hosts Matthew and Craig made us feel completely welcome and have such attention to detail on everything from the high standard quality furnishings, the lovely breakfasts and the extra little touches which made our stay stand out compared to others.

We stayed in the Toulouse room which was gorgeous, lovely large modern bathroom, really spacious, spotlessly clean, with a view overlooking the park. Looking at the other rooms we would have been happy to have stayed in any of these.

We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived being offered a cup of tea and cake which was very much appreciated after our journey, Matthew ran through some useful information whilst we checked in.

Loved the breakfasts especially the home made granola and the specials board. Nothing was too much trouble and the extra touches made us feel as though we were being well looked after throughout our stay, we didn't have to ask for anything, our hosts pre-empted anything that we could have possibly needed. They also offer additional things like picnic baskets, hikers lunches, evening snack plate or meal when pre booked - we didn't make use of these options but great that the option is available should you wish to do so.

Matthew and Craig were wonderful hosts, thanks again we will definitely return any time we stay at Whitby.

Room Tip: Toulouse room was lovely but would be happy with any of the rooms

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
