We stayed in the superior room which was very well equipped. We had a private bathroom just along the corridor. This didn't prove to be a problem. The only downside is that if...

    My husband and I came to Whitby for a few days and stayed at Joben guest house. We found it without any problems, used a navigator. The landlady is lovely and very friendly, goes an extra mile to cater to her guests' tastes; the guest house is small and everyone receives a lot of personal attention. We stayed at an...

    Had a great night here for my daughter's birthday. The family room was spacious and cosy. The shower room was just outside. Breakfast had the works and was tasty. Jill was really friendly and made our stay a real pleasure. We will definitely stay again when next in Whitby.

    We arrived here weekend commencing 07/11/14 for a 2 night stay. I must say we really enjoyed our stay - we were well looked after - even when I was ill (I was sick on the carpet) it was not too much problem for Jill who was very understanding. We booked the 'Superior Room' which came with its own private...
