We visited Whitby for a two night stay 23rd and 24th Oct as a family of four adults. This was our first visit to Rosslyn House and it will definitely not be our last. Martin and Vanessa made us feel very welcome from our very first meeting upon arrival until leaving after a lovely weekend break. Nothing was too much... More

We arrived on October 4th for 2 nights with our friends from South Africa. We had a wonderful welcome from Martin and Vanessa. They showed us to our 3 rooms even helping us with our luggage. We then had tea and coffee on the terrace and our hosts were incredibly friendly. Our rooms were warm and comfortable and the breakfast... More

Martin and Vanessa had just taken over guest house when we got there. Could not have met a more welcoming couple and very helpful. Very short walk to town centre and pubs. Guest house was great and hospitality even better. Will be going back again.

We have returned to Rosslyn 3 times and would not consider staying anywhere else when visiting Whitby. Patsy and Jo are so friendly and welcoming, the rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. Just a 5 minute walk into Whitby centre. The breakfasts are AMAZING! Looking forward to our next visit :-)

A late review, but necessary! My wife & I stayed 3 nights from 24th to 26th July inclusive, our first trip to Whitby. Patsy & Jo were wonderful company in a fantastic location, with accommodation & food to die for. I cannot speak highly enough of the area, local hospitality & warm friendly atmosphere at Rosslyn House. From the town... More

Patsy and Jo are great hosts, friendly and bubbly. Our family room was at the top of the house, a bit of a climb, but the room was lovely and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were huge and beautifully cooked, with a good selection of cooked options like smoked kippers or haddock. Good location, just a short walk in to town.... More

We stayed at Rosslyn in August 2015, our 5th consecutive year of visits and, as ever, the service,food and accommodation were spot on. The only downside was to learn that Jo and Patsy are moving on.
