Reviews

Excellent all round. V well equipped and v comfortable

Richard J,

We spend a lot of time on the West Cliff so this property is ideal for us. Also having a lift to the apartment is so very helpful as I would not be able to climb all the stairs. I am always confident that the apartment will be clean and ready for us when we arrive.

Mrs K B,

Lovely sized property, always clean and well presented and in an ideal location

Karen P,

THIS IS THE BEST APARTMENT I HAVE EVER STAYED IN, THE LIFT INTO THE ROOM IS AMAZING, THE FACILITIES ARE OUTSTANDING. THE COMFORT AND DECOR IS FIRST CLASS, THE OWNERS HAVE THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING AND MORE! THE BED ARE SO COMFY. EVERYTHING IS SO CLEAN AND PERFECT. TO SUM IT UP - I WISH IT WAS MINE!

Mrs LINDA A,

I was so impressed with the property because it ticked all our boxes that I wanted to leave a review on the website for future guests and I rarely leave comments. The property was spotless and beautifully decorated, yet homely at the same time. The location was perfect right next to the beach yet in a quiet street. Parking was just round the corner and we were given a parking permit. There was plenty of parking available in the car park. The bins were easy to reach. The property is a short and pleasant walk to Whitby town centre down some beautiful alleys and steps and a very short walk to Pannett Park which the kids enjoyed. The property was very well equipped. We cooked 3 nights out of the 6 nights we stayed there and had everything we needed. I especially liked the lift system straight into the apartment which was very unique and made the baggage loading and unloading very convenient. Kids loved their room with their TV. Also there were so many information booklets on the bookshelf, games and toys that if we didn't go out every day we would have had plenty to do. Really enjoyed my stay in Whitby in this very very conveniently located apartment and will recommend it to others.

Ms Shirley L,

It was the best accommodation yet, I've stayed in Whitby more than 30 times previously and the standard of this flat was outstanding all round.

Leigh H,

I book this apartment twice a year as it is exactly where I need it to be, has lift access and is always clean and in good repair. Although I have never met the owners, I have spoken to them when there has been a problem, which is not a regular occurrence, and they are friendly and approachable.

Mrs K B,

Excellent property inside. Lift was very welcome. Everything in there was top class. Return visit definitely.

Mr J B,

Lovely well appointed apartment that we have been visiting for the last 8 years and will continue to do so.

Karen P,

Very good. One of best apartments we have stayed in. Had all we could possibly need, and more! Very thoughtful owners. We still hope to return to Whitby and to this super apartment in the future. Lovely to have a 4 person apartment for 2 couples ie 2 king beds, 2 bathrooms and 2 sets of keys - perfect.

Mr Robert C,

Area Information

Whitby
Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. The river Esk flows through the town to the sea and cottages are perched on the hills on each side, with cobbled streets and historic yards providing a maze of places to explore. The town has a fantastic mix of modern shops and services, traditional stores and boutique shops. Whitby jet continues to be made into beautiful jewellery and sold in a number of shops.  There are plenty of excellent restaurants which serve local fish and seafood, as well as a wonderful choice of cafes and tearooms.

The ruins of Whitby Abbey stand dominantly on the clifftop and can be reached by climbing the 199 steps from the old town. The Abbey is said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town, harbour and coastline. Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. A statue of this great explorer stands proudly above the town, along with some huge whalebones, a sign of the town's maritime history. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch of the day.

There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta, and there are two popular Goth festivals each year.
