Privately owned by Peter McKenzie-Midlane since 1985, the Victorian property has been refurbished to a very high standard throughout.
Peter and Rosnita offer you their world experience and will provide a home from home relaxing and comfortable stay. Our style of hospitality comes from our lessons learned while travelling and living in many different countries and we also know how to provide a warm Yorkshire welcome. Peter has travelled all over the world on business and married his Indonesian wife in 2007. Rosnita was born in Medan, North Sumatra, Indonesia and speaks fluent English, Bahasa (Indonesian), Norwegian and limited Japanese.
The property is located in West Terrace, on the West Cliff area of Whitby, which is a beautiful Gothic town with a whaling, smuggling, fishing and jet mining history. Only a 4 minute walk to Whitby Pavilion, Whitby beach, the whalebone, Captain Cook statue. The town centre is only a 6 minute walk and has many local pubs, restaurants (sit- in or take away), and two supermarkets nearby. There is plenty more you could discover about Whitby! We have fast broadband, free Wi-Fi throughout the property when staying at our guesthouse. We provide parking permits (scratch cards) inclusive of the room charge. Look for the sign W-zones.
