Had a lovely stay in a newly refurbished room on the top floor. The room did not have a view but was very nicely done out with a very comfortable bed and everything you would need for a stay. There was a mini fridge in our room too that had bottled water and milk in. The b&b itself is nicely...

Stayed over Saturday to celebrate a friends 50th Birthday this weekend. Stunning accommodation that's just been refurbished by the new owners. Warm and friendly greeting. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Breakfast cooked to perfection. Certainly will return on our next stay over in Whitby 😊

We have used the Rosslyn for 5 years now, 4 times when it was under the previous owners. The newly refurbished accommodation is very well presented and has been renovated tastefully and well. The room (room 1 as usual) was very comfortable and with the addition of a mini fridge to the facilities served its purpose well. The owners are...

Super to be greeted with homemade cake and tea; spacious and comfortable room in newly decorated B and B. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wine glasses in our room were a nice touch as was the complimentary glass of bubbles with our delicious (and generous) breakfast! Hosts were friendly and generous. We would definitely recommend Rosslyn House. Many thanks for the...

Stayed one night at Rosslyn House in December when visiting family in Whitby. As I was travelling alone I wanted to stay somewhere I would feel comfortable and not have too far to walk to family. Having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor I thought Rosslyn House sounded just what I was looking for. On arrival I was warmly welcomed by...

Hi Stephanie Thanks you for your review, I have not responded to thank you before as I wanted to wait until we had completed our planned renovations. We have redecorated and refurnished the rooms and now we have a "super kingsized" bed for the more athletically built South African :) in one of the rooms. We have put mini-fridges in...
