The whole place is beautiful and clean. The landlady is a pure gem, and must be one of if not the very best in Whitby
Sincere and welcoming A lot of hard work been done by the owners Clean and comfortable Excellent breakfast
Traffic and late night revellers noise
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The location was very central and the lady running the guest house was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast included with the room was excellent and filled us up for the day ahead. The room was comfy and clean. The free wifi was great to plan our days out!
There wasn't much we didn't like about the guest house. The room was quite small but very comfy, bright and clean. The shower was a bit dated but adequate.
The owner was lovely, very welcoming,helpful and friendly. The breakfast was grand, we have specific dietary requirements (vegan) and it was wonderful to be in a place where this was understood and well catered for. There was no problem with portion size in that people with huge appetites (like me) were given huge portions and people with moderate appetites were very well fed. There was a lot of choice on the breakfast menu. Location was good for the whole of Whitby, just slightly back from the busiest parts of town and a few minutes walk to the beaches and cliffs etc.
Very friendly, helpful Landlady.
Can be noisy with traffic and sea gulls
The location is great, only a 5-10 minute walk to the harbour. Room was small but comfy with everything that we needed for our stay. Janet is an excellent hostess and provides a fabulous breakfast. She even texted us to let us know about some nearby inexpensive parking.
There wasn't anything to dislike.
very good rooms & food also location excellent
parking not easy
We have just enjoyed a lovely weekend in Whitby, staying 2 nights at The Florence Guest House and what a gem! Having read the reviews before we went it was hard to believe that a small guest house in Whitby could be so good - but it is. The whole place is welcoming and spotlessly clean and Janet is lovely, very down to earth with no airs and graces, just good old fashioned Yorkshire hospitality. My husband and I had Room 6 on the top floor which is spacious (as long as you're not too tall!!!) and very self contained, and our son was in Room 4 on the floor below, much smaller but fine for him. The only observation I would like to make (and it is an observation not a criticism) is that there is no shower in the bathroom of Room 6, which would be a huge bonus if one could be fitted. I don't know if it is the logistics of the water pressure that would make this difficult but even fitting a bracket for the shower head that is fitted to the taps, and a shower curtain/screen, would give guests the choice. We did nip down and use our son's shower on a couple of occasions!! Fluffy white towels and crisp white bedding will always get a thumbs up from me, and having forgotten to pack my magnifying make-up mirror it was lovely to find one in the bathroom and these are the little touches that sets a place apart from the norm. Breakfast is freshly cooked to order and wonderful (cooked by Alan) - as good as we have had anywhere in the world and a lot better than most. Plenty of tea and coffee supplies in the bedrooms with a further 'help yourselves' supply on the hall table - a very nice touch. The location is great, right opposite Pannet Park and only a few minutes walk to the harbour. We thought parking might be a problem but on the morning we were leaving home Janet sent me a text telling me about a local guy who rents parking space in front of his property for only £3 a day and is just 2 minutes walk away from the guest house.
Wish there had been a shower in Room 6 but feel very 'picky' saying that!!
The guest house was clean and very welcoming. Value for money and a bit more!! Janet was very helpful and assisted with direction to get to the venue for the wedding we were attending and the free parking. Breakfast was amazing and made to order, no need to worry about potions you can have as little or as much as you like and the pots of tea just kept coming! Would defiantly recommend :0)
Lovely room brilliant food and hosts a lovely place to stay would highly recomend
Janet was a lovely host, she has a great sense of humour and makes you welcome and you feel like nothing is too much trouble for her. Great breakfast! Will use again!
friendly proprietor delicious breakfast excellent location
Had everything we needed for a short stay, breakfast was good and the host was very friendly and helpful. The room was pretty small, but this wasn't a problem for our 2 night stay.
The bed was a little uncomfortable, but we are used to memory foam at home, so perhaps are a little picky.
Breakfast Nice bedding. Big room.
The stairs to the top. Next time I will ask for a lower floor
Wonderful hosts, lovely comfy very clean rooms, proper proper Yorkshire breakfast..!

What an excellent weekend we had at the Florence Guest House.Janet made us feel welcome from the moment we came in the door.The room was excellent and lovely to stay in.Brekfast was excellent with a great choice of things to eat we will defently be returning to stay with Janet and Alan again !!
It was a bit of a walk up the hill to the car park,but on the Saturday we managed to park just up the road.
