Staff were friendly, nice room and comfy bed. Only a 5 minute walk into town centre. Lovely breakfast hamper in the morning. Would stay again
Large clean spacious room (room 3)and friendly owner.
Continental Breakfast basket, although you cant really complain as you know this is what you will get but a cooked breakfast would be better. Also the bed was too small. Large room so could easily fit a kingsize bed.
Breakfast in basket a great idea. A.good walk into town, which is good bit of exercise.
Could here noise from road.
The friendly welcome. The location. Good car parking. Continental breakfast delivered to your room. Comfortable bed. Large room with table and chairs and a leather sofa. Cleanliness.
Would have preferred semi-skimmed milk with breakfast but hardly an issue.
The comfort, the warm welcome, and the cleanliness
Friendly owner, clean and modern accommodation.
Whitby is lovely well worth a visit
Very quiet clean and warm
Bathroom very small
Location of hotel, rooms very well decorated, breakfast was superb. Lovely and clean. Beautiful house. Good shower, crisp white towels.
Nice guest house, very good room, comfortable bed, friendly hosts, decent value and good breakfast.
Nothing to dislike. Location is slightly out of the town centre but that was no problem for us.
first time we stayed in elford house and will sure be going back.rooms lovely and confortable.brekfast fantastic,ideal location only ten mins walk into town centre.linda n ged lovely people..very friendly.
Beautiful & tasteful decor Large airy rooms Pleasant owners Breakfast had quietly been dropped off at 8am in a lovely hamper (felt like Santa had been) The bread was lovely & warm. So nice to eat together in our bed clothes, very cosy & romantic xx Great location, nice to have that 10min stroll in to the town. On site parking Pubs in Whitby
Bed rolled in slightly to centre, we both noticed this in morning. But we are a lovers of firm mattresses. Maybe somewhere to hang the towels in bathroom would be good. Regardless of these we would definitely recommend & revisit. Thank you.
The baker of breakfast things outside the door is a great idea for continental breakfast.
If you want a cooked English though this is not a choice.
The breakfasts were very good
We had a problem with our room door lock; we were unable to open the door when we were in the room. This prooved to be technique but it was a worry. I understand this problem will be resolved.
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.
the lady was very welcoming. The room was big and clean also it was a relaxing environment you were able to stay in or go out, a bit like having your own apartment the bed was comfortable.(but only a standard double)
my wife went to enquire about our towels she pressed a bell unknown the landlord was behind the curtain and on the phone. He came out and told my wife to "HUSH " and said "go on mum" Rude of him I thought. they do not do cooked breakfasts I thought the did ? Shower room was too small, no room to bend down to dry your feet I would have preferred a King size bed. No toilet brush or cleaning detergent for the toilet. No Emergency plan inside the room in what to do in case of a fire !
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.
