Very welcoming, warm and comfortable.
Excellent hospitality, quality breakfast.
The only thing that is not quite as good is the state of the decorating it's very 70's shades of brown.
From the moment we arrived at The Riftswood we were made to feel very welcome; Peter & Paula are excellent hosts, friendly and informative.
The room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was first class, locally sourced and cooked perfectly.
Location is excellent
After a very warm welcome from our hosts we were offered tea,coffee or wine.
A lovely gesture and the cake was yummy. It was easy to walk everywhere as the location is perfect. Our room was a bit small with our toilet next door but we knew this when booking.There is other rooms with en suites.
Our breakfast was the best we've eaten in any B&B absolutely delicious and plenty of it good quality food cooked perfectly.
Thank you very much.
A lovely large comfortable room with equally well-sized en-suite.
The owners were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was very well prepared and the locally smoked kippers excellent.
AN EXELLENT PLACE TO STAY, OWNERS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL,10-15 MINUTE STROLL INTO TOWN CENTRE,FREE PARKING OUTSIDE GUEST HOUSE.
Stayed at Riftswood b&b for an early birthday treat for my husband, we had the most friendliest welcome from Paula.
Beautiful hidden gem, room was lovely, clean fresh towels, coffee and tea with biscuits and chocolates, we were also greeted with mouth-watering fruit cake and a proper mug of tea. Breakfast was wholesome and delicious. Just a short 10 minute walk into Whitby. Enjoyable stay in a home from home. Thankyou.
Bank holiday break
For me this is the best B&B in Whitby.
From arriving and being given the free parking permit, a godsend in a place like Whitby, to the spotless clean, comfortable and spacious room, to the wonderfully filling and delicious breakfast everything was superb. The hosts Peter and Paula were a delight friendly and full of information to improve your stay. And talking of friendly you just have to meet the lord of the manor Denzil the dog, one of the nicest dogs I have ever met even my wife who "doesn,t like dogs" got on famously with him. If you are going to Whitby this is the place to stay.
It was the friendliest guest house I've stayed in very welcoming, the towels were a great size to wrap yourself in after your shower the food was great I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.
1st wedding anniversary 3 night stay
Paula & Pete run a lovely, clean, home from home B&B.
They were the perfect hosts, very helpful & couldn't do enough for us. Lovely little touches, like personalised menus offering a great choice of breakfasts including a fab full English!!. If you like dogs then you have to meet Denzil the family dog, very placid & so friendly. 2 minute walk to the beach & 10-15 mins walk down to the town centre. Loved the place that much we've booked to take our grandkids in September before they go back to school!. Would definately recommend Riftswood to anyone who is planning a stay in Whitby.
