We are delighted to be the new hosts at Roraima House. We are grateful to the former owners, Stuart and Sandra, for leaving us such a beautiful and comfortable bed and breakfast and for being so helpful in providing us with advice and assistance to ensure that we maintain the high standards that has made Roraima House an exceptional place to stay.

Roraima was built in the 1890s by sea captain John Trattles and named after his steamship the SS Roraima. It is an impressive, large three-storey Victorian house built at the top end of the village of Staithes.
To the front of the house is an enclosed garden with seating in summer and we are fortunate in Staithes to be able to offer parking for our B&B guests at the rear of the house. We also have an enclosed rear yard where bikes can be padlocked and stored.
The accommodation is spread over three floors. The ground floor has an impressive entrance hallway and welcoming dining room. The first floor has two guest rooms, both with en-suites and views across to Boulby cliffs and the sea. On the top floor we have two further rooms, a double and a twin with a shared bathroom and lounge/kitchen facility.
The entrance is via a small Victorian tiled floor porch which has fabulous stained glass windows surrounding the front door. Inside, the hallway leads to the original large pitch pine staircase with more stained glass decorating the way to the first and second floors.
The dining room has an open fire and fully restored sash windows, and also provides lounge chairs and a selection of magazines, books and the local newspaper for quiet reading in a TV-free zone.
Whilst we prepare your choice of grilled locally sourced sausage & bacon accompanied by mushrooms, tomatoes, hash brown, free range eggs & baked beans, help yourself to cereals, fruit juice, fruit & yogurt, freshly baked bread and toast.
During check-in at Roraima House, enjoy home-made cake and tea or coffee and a chance to chat with your hosts.
