Very welcoming hosts on our first visit to Riftswood. We were very kindly offered a glass of wine and some fruit cake after being shown to our room, which was just right. It was a lovely surprise to return to our room after a wander round Whitby to find an anniversary card and bottle of wine for us, after only mentioning this on arrival as the reason we were in Whitby. Our stay ended with a top quality cooked breakfast and nothing is too much trouble for Pete and Paula. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Just had a 2 night stay. The place cannot be faulted. The owners cannot do enough for you. The breakfast is probably one of the best I have ever had. The portion size is excellent you choose what you would like on the plate all excellent quality. We stayed in the room with a separate toilet but that doesn't matter the shower and sink is in your room. Denzil what a lovely dog he is ace. Next time will try a different room. Thank you for the great weekend. We have found a new place to become a regular in Whitby. Thank you Andy & Hannah.

Pete an Paula Craggs owners of Ridtswood were excellent hosts, very friendly and very informative. The B&B served delicious and very tasty big breakfasts. The room was awesome and serviced professionally. Would definitely be recommending it to others.

This is our 3rd visit to Whitby's golden treasure B&B and once "AGAIN" Peter and Paula were absolutely amazing. We were met with such a warm and welcoming manner which just starts your weekend off with such relaxation. Everything at this slice of paradise is effortless, nothing is to much for these amazing host's, from lifts locally to an extra sausage at breakfast they will do anything to accommodate. Rather than Babbling on and on I will end with "GO" to Riftswood B&B for an amazing, relaxing and overall perfect long or shot break. I promise you wont be disappointed.

Picked up by Paula at the bus station. Had tea and cake on arrival. Nice large room. Breakfast was huge and of good quality. Had a nightcap with them one evening!! A nice touch was that it was our anniversary and whilst out Paula put a card and bottle of wine in our room. She took us back to the bus station after our 3 night stay. Lovely couple and Denzil was gorgeous!!! Would certainly stay again.
