We stayed here recently for a long weekend and we couldn't fault Elford House at all. Highlights - lovely clean and comfortable room, very quiet, excellent location and the breakfasts were great. We really liked having the picnic breakfast so we could have lazy lie ins! Parking could be a little bit tricky if you were one of the last... More

We are a young couple who love our privacy. Breakfast is delivered quietly to your door on a morning and the owners are professional, informative and very friendly. The rooms are stylish and clean. A short walk into town makes it everything we could need during our stay in Whitby. This is our home away from home! Looking forward to... More

We booked two nights at Elford Hosue and found the owners very welcoming. The room on the first floor was very spacious and the continental style breakfast delivered outside your door each morning at 8.30 was definately different. The basket was filled with lots of breakfast goodies to include warm french bread. Its a good location but anyone who has... More

We booked in for 7 nights and have just returned home from our stay. The house is in a great location just far enough away from the harbour to be peaceful, but near enough to be accessible.

This was our second trip to the Elford. The room was on the second floor. It was well decorated. The main problem was that the settee and coffee table were in the corner under the sloping roof, which made it not very practical for us. I felt that it was expensive for what we got, and feel that it did... More

Hotel was dead nice, we had a small room with ensuite and TV with Freeview. Even though we didn't pay for breakfast, every morning at half past 8, we were left a continental breakfast basket which included: toast, yoghurt, fruit juice, cereal, milk, jams, cheeses etc. Very reasonably priced, owners very nice, rooms lovely, rooms cleaned daily, towels changed everyday,...

It was perfect for what we wanted. Not to have the mad rush to get down to have breakfast. The basket was compact and offered a selection to meet the needs of most. Warm bread & boiled eggs.
