The property was as good as the time we stayed twelve months ago. It is always good to be able to go back to a place you have enjoyed before.
Enjoyed the hotel, we were in room 10 which was a great view to the abbey, fairly close walking distance to town if you wanted to to leave the car behind. Continental breakfast was delivered to door at 8:30am and was really nice, overall really happy!
Car park on both days was a little on the tight side for parking, felt like there wasn't enough spaces however did manage to get parked both nights so is a very minor point.
Wonderful place to stay the breakfast been delivered to our door was absolutely perfect would certainly stay here again.
Been at the top of a hill but that's Whitby but have to say got easier after a couple of days.
Breakfast basket was a lovely idea served in your room.
We loved the fixture and fittings. The owners were lovely and very friendly - nothing was too much trouble and they even catered for a gluten free breakfast!
Unfortunately my husband wasn't keen on the continental breakfast. He would have preferred a cooked one each morning - I didn't mind as I am a Coeliac so a continental gluten free breakfast was fine with me!
A good, large, clean room. The breakfasts were good, considering they were served in the room, with warm bread rolls or croissants, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, cereals, juice etc etc. A quiet location, a 10-minute walk from Whitby town centre and the beach and local amenities etc. Friendly owners (even when we left, accidentally taking our room keys with us!!)
Being 6'5" tall, I found the bed a little bit uncomfortable, because I couldn't hang my feet over the end of the bed (There was a 'footboard' as well as a headboard) ... Not really a complaint as I'm used to this, when staying away from home!
Comfortable, clean and and excellent breakfast, great and very friendly hosts, the perfect place to stay in Whitby
Friendly host, lovely building full of period features, with off street parking. Close to the town centre, but far enough away to be away from holidaymakers 'celebrations'. The continental breakfast had plenty of choice, and there was more than enough of it.
everything the rooms where so clean and fresh
nothing to dislike
Great location, easy walk into Whitby or access out of town for country driving. Hosts very welcoming -- useful pub recommendations! Room very warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Very quiet at night, despite facing onto main road.
Not a bother for us, but for some people the breakfast-in-baskets concept might be off-putting. Our room was top floor with a sloping ceiling -- meant there wasn't really anywhere to sit to actually eat the breakfast. It was a novelty for us (breakfast in bed!), but people with reduced mobility might find it awkward/uncomfortable.
Clean,comfortable and handy.
Nothing wrong with this house.
house itself and its decoration kindness of staff creative way of serving breakfast
need to be ready for an uphill walk from the town
Nice spacious room with settee and TV. Breakfast in basket each morning with excellent choice. General cleanliness and décor was excellent. Good car parking and excellent position for Whitby centre and buses.
Breakfast at your own time and leisure in your room. Location good for town and surrounding venues eg Staithes and Robin hoods Bay Car parking availability went a long way in our selection of Elford House.
Although over 70 We are fit and agile but a third floor room up a final narrow stairway could be a problem for some. This needs pointing out in initial info on accommodation with some selection of rooms being made known.
Can't fault anything. Very clean, friendly, and such a beautiful house. The breakfast in a basket was an excellent idea. Linda and Ged are very friendly and welcoming
Very original breakfast idea, with a basketful of various health-conscious options including at least two five-a-days, TV & tea/coffe making facility in the bedroom, cosy bed with small as well as large lights, and enough space for us both to fit our things into.
With being 5'11.5" and 5'10" respectively, there was a tendency to bump our heads on some of the loft-level spaces in the room! I was upset by the disappearance of a carton of drink I had left in the room, intending to drink it, from the breakfast basket one day.
The friendly atmosphere . Quiet , peaceful break.
Very nice room that was clean and had a very good nights sleep. The breakfast is such a good thing, there is a good many things in the basket. Have stayed before and will be going back next year.
would have liked the stay to have been longer.
Warm greeting when we arrived and very helpful. Room was lovely, very clean and close to the town. Loved the breakfast in a basket was well as we didn't have to get up early.
Quality comfort excellent breakfast plenty of variety
Check in times
Location was great 10 mins walk to centre...wide choice of places to eat, would highly recommend Cosa Nostra food & service fantastic. Elford House very clean,breakfast in a basket was great
Elford House situated at top of a steep hill. Bed not the best
Room was lovely. Breakfast in a basket at your door daily was very good. Guest house is about 5 minute walk from town centre. Jed was very friendly and welcoming. We would certainly stay there again.
A good location
The room appeared recently refurbished Nice house
Breakfast was served in a basket outside the room. We would much rather have had a breakfast room. Daily tidying was mediocre
The house itself was lovely and parking was good. Location was really good.
breakfast delivered in a basket, would have been nice to have a communal area and chat to other guests stopping at the guest house and see a bit more of the proprieters. Although the room was described fairly as compact but didn't realise there wouldn't be a single wardrobe, not much storage.
