WE'VE HAD A BIT OF A MEDIA FRENZY THIS MONTH! 
We have appeared in the Whitby Gazette due to being awarded both TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2016 and LateRooms ‘Simply The Guest’ Award 2016. 
TRIPADVISOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE 2016 
We would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all of our guests, especially those who have taken the time to leave us such fabulous feedback on TripAdvisor. 
 
It really does mean a great deal to us and it never goes unappreciated.  
 
We read and reply to every review we receive. 
 
WE'RE RATED IN TOP 15% OF B&Bs IN WHITBY 
A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our Guests who take the time out of their busy lives to write such fantastic reviews for us. As a result, we are now in the top 15% of B&Bs/Guesthouses in Whitby on TRIPADVISOR. 
 
When Zed and I (Emma) took over, we were #96 out of #154. In 5 years, with a lot of hard work, love for what we do and fabulous guests…we’ve jumped up past 70 B&Bs to be at #24 and will continue to enjoy making things better and better for our guests. 
WE’RE RE-BRANDING - NEW WEBSITE, LOGO & PHOTOS 
We’re really excited to begin our rebrand this month. We are in the process of creating a modern, bespoke, responsive and mobile compatible website. Thank you SO much to Rob at it’seeze Rydale for being so friendly, knowledgable and helpful … oh and for ‘nagging’ me to keep up with the development. 
 
We are also having a new logo designed. We want a purple/grey theme with a logo design of the Guesthouse. A big thank you to the talented Fran from Cann Creative for her patience with my indecisiveness. 
RENOVATIONS UNDERWAY OF OUR FAMILY & SINGLE ROOM 
As we did with our Deluxe Doubles (Room 14 & 16) last year, we are renovating a Family & Single Room (Room 12 & 15) in the same fashion this year. 
 
TOTAL REVAMP - ceilings down, wallpaper off, ceilings and walls re-boarded, re-plastering of ceilings and walls, new skirting boards, new spotlights, wallpapered and painted then finished off with new curtains and furnishings. 
 
I like to keep Zed out of trouble in the Winter months!!
