Property Details

Neighborhood
If you’re a cricket fan, this is the ideal location, North Marine House overlooks Scarborough cricket club, Yorkshire's first class cricket ground. Located is just a short walk to all of the popular attractions. Packed with seaside charm, you’ll find plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes to discover as well as arcades and ice cream parlours.

There are a number of beaches for you to choose from. The popular South Bay is a sun trap and close to the hustle and bustle of the town centre. North Bay has been accredited with Blue Flag status meaning it’s one of the best beaches in Europe! Cayton Bay is the quietest of the three and boasts a sweeping bay with a rural feel. Lastly Cornelian Bay is the remotest and hardest to get to but it’s a hidden gem and often empty.

Ideal for all weathers, there are lots of indoor attractions in Scarborough for the whole family. Head to Sea Life Sanctuary to see seals, penguins, sharks, turtles and more or Scarborough Castle to explore its 3000 year history. If it’s outdoor fun you’re looking for, The Open Air Theatre is a short 20 minute walk from North Marine House, where you can see amazing bands, singers and comedians. There is also the Sky Trail Adventure, Peasholm Park and a great water park, suitable for all ages a few minutes’ drive away.

Getting Around
North Marine House is within walking distance of all that Scarborough has to offer and within 1 hours’ drive time of Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Filey.

Scarborough Train Station is a short 10 minute walk away and has routes to Filey, Bridlington, Liverpool and Sheffield.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Scarborough. Hop on the 12 route and you can visit neighbouring seaside spots of Filey and Bridlington. The X93 travels through to Middlesbrough with drop offs in Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby.

Would have preferred to see my car from the apartment. Also if we parked on the front then we had to move the car after 2hrs. I would have paid more if there was an all day parking permit.

We love visiting Scarborough, we love both North and South Bay so the location of the property was excellent. 10 min either way. The property is clean and modern with all the home comforts necessary for a few nights or even longer. The coffee machine and milk in the fridge was a great touch. Thank you! There are couple of convenience stores within a couple of minutes walk too.
Didn't have any problems with the apartment. If I had to pick something I noticed on the last day the mattress was upside down so had not had the pillow top but hadn't really found the bed to too uncomfortable. Parking is approx a 6 min walk away and reasonable. I'd recommend unpacking outside the apartment then taking your car up to the Castle Rd or one of the other recommend carparks.

The photographer here forgot to take a picture of the view, which is just as good as one of the stands at the cricket ground and room enough for 2-4 adults to watch the game, those otherwise occupied able to get away from it easily too.

Really good well designed refurb. Loved the 4 glass external doors very airy. Hosts are not on site but neighbours proved very helpful!

The view of the cricket ground was amazing and the location was excellent for Scarborough Open Air Theatre. The apartment was beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. The tiles in the shower room and toilet were lovely. The pre-visit correspondence was impeccable and the best we have encountered. The hosts have thought of almost everything that you could need during a visit, including an iron and hairdryer in the bedroom. We really enjoyed our stay at Umpires Watch and would definately recommend it.
The paint work in a couple of areas needed addressing - looking tired/scuffed. The towel rail in the toilet had been pulled off the wall and bodged back into place. We only had one glass that wasn't a wine glass. The exposed brick work in the kitchen looks lovely but didn't feel hygienic behind the oven and sink. The alternate tap fixing cap was missing from the sink in the kitchen. A shower gel dispenser in the shower room would have been appreciated. Also, an extra tea-towel and an oven glove would be nice.

Excellent location within walking distance of train station, local amenities and attractions. Plenty of affordable cafes, bars and restaurants nearby, and within easy reach of beach, seafront and parks.
The seagulls gave us an early morning alarm call each day, but that’s part of being at the seaside I suppose.

Joanne

Definitely exceeded expectations, very nice studio apartment. Modern decor and double ?lazing can sometimes be a rarity in Scarborough. Very clean and perfect view for the cricket.
Not sure if we missed them, but couldn't find any dishwasher tablets and was no washing up liquid. Also the online manuals didnt work when I clicked on the links. The blinds which were v modern, looked great but we couldnt get them close effectively, so quite a lot of light coming in during the night.

Location was great - i had stopped in the Howdale before directly opposite
- a few years earlier
Keys were mixed up in the box on arrival. At first we made our way into Skippers Rest before after a couple of phone calls we got into our own Apartment No.2 Bowlers Rest
We had seen the parking permit scratch card in Skippers Rest but left it there as i was expecting somebody else would have booked that.
There was no scratch card in Apartment 2 - we paid every day on the Castle Road Car Park.
if you want to check the records please feel free

Location was good just could have done without all the stairs lol but we got used to that. The apartment had almost everything needed very well thought out. The only thing could have had was a few door hooks on back of the door & a better mattresses as was too soft & had a bit of backache.
The mattress was too soft.

Clean and tidy everything you could need even milk in fridge on arrival bed comfy lovely veiw of cricket ground
Cooker was a challenge to work the large ring didn't work at all no instructions early hours of Monday morning there was lots of banging at the front door and loads of noise for about 20 minutes then noticed as we left the front door had loads of damage to the lock with splinters of wood on the floor. And as we arrived I had to ring to get instructions on the key access this had not been sent. These are only minor middles as the place it's self was great. The windows and blinds could do with a clean but no one is in control of seagulls making the mess

Tried to email saying this but got no response so putting it here.
We have recently just returned from our 4 night stay at the Anchor apartment in Scarborough from the 20th April until the 24th April 2022. Unfortunately it wasn't the best experience we have had, this was due to the electric going off on the first morning we were there (the Thursday 21st ). This issue wasn't resolved until tea time that day. Unbelievably, we woke up to the same issue on day four which was the Saturday. However this time it couldn't be resolved and we had to move to another apartment across the town. As you can imagine, it had a massive impact on how we could enjoy our holiday.
Although the apartment that we moved to was nice, when we have had a look at the site not only was it cheaper than the one we originally booked it was also quite a distance from where we had paid to park our car. Everyone I spoke to at Host and Stay were lovely but it was so stressfull that I had to call in the first place as I am quite an anxious person. All of these factors resulted in the holiday not being as relaxing as we had hoped.

Lack of parking, using a nearby car park was expensive, we’ve stayed in hotels in the same area in the past and were given a permit to be able to park on the street, this would be a welcome improvement

Lovely bright room, clean and tidy. Very nice view of the cricket grounds to the rear. The room was well furnished and equipped.
The description of renting 'the entire apartment' was misleading as it is actually a Studio. There was a partition between the bed and the living area/kitchenette, although it is flimsy and allows light through. Would be much improved with a substantial partition.

The fact that there was no parking available unless you use a disc that wasn’t provided yet we found out that you can get them from local shops free of charge.

There was no Breakfast but Tea , Coffee and Milk much appreciated .
Location was very good and peaceful . The view of Scarborough Cricket Ground was fabulous . The Cricket wasn't bad either . Restaurants nearby , town centre within walking distance .
The double bed was a little narrow with no spare room to move around
I could have done with a Hob guide as it took me while to figure it
out .

Burgess

Decor and general vibe of the apartment was great. Apartment was clean and well-presented. The guide book was comprehensive. The interior is up to date and has obviously been influenced by someone with a keen eye for interior design. Overall it had a very metropolitan London sort of style which was wuite interesting for Scarborough!
No view for the particular apartment we stayed in which was not obvious from the pics as the pics on the Booking were was all of the apartments together. Can't really be helped though due to building design.
Couple of minor maintenance items:
1: The bed frame bolts need tightening as the frame itself is loose. I tightened them hand-tight but they will come lose again. Just needs someone with an alan key.
2: Door handle rose in bathroom is loose. Just needs tightening with an alan key.
Comfort:
1: Sofa is obviously more leaning towards style rather than comfort. It did the job though, so all good.

My 8 year old daughter and I stayed for one night in Bowlers Retreat and had a super comfortable stay. Apartment is clean, fully equipped and if you sit outside you have a view of the cricket lawn. Good Central location, plenty of car parks nearby (the NCP is £6 for 24 hours) and a two minute walk to North Bay.

Highly recommended.

the general property was very nice.
the sink in the kitchen area has a really bad smell coming from the drain. the shower has bad pressure and the blind in the living area would not fully close so was letting light in.

Sara

We liked the idea of utilising an apartment. The washing machine was a plus, as was the dishwasher.
The photos on the website suggested a view of the cricket ground to the rear. In fact the view turned out to be a very small courtyard and an annexe to the building - no view of the cricket ground.
The site said the property didn't accept pets which was a plus. However, someone upstairs had a dog which we heard running around due to hard floors above, and there were muddy paw prints on the carpets outside our apartment. Also, it was not pleasant to be sitting in the apartment, which was located on the ground floor, to look out of the front window to see a large dog emptying itself in the front garden in front of our window.
The place had repair issues, as there were cracks running down the walls, the worktop wasn't sealed properly and there was a good gap between it and the wall, there are no splashbacks behind the hob or sink and these were stained badly. There was some damp in the kitchen. The door furniture was loose and some of it hanging off, such as the scutcheon in the bathroom. The shower drain lacked a cover so we would need to stand on an open drain, and the drain itself was filthy.
The walls in the bathroom, although tiled nicely, were filthy and had residue of grout.
The walls were dirty around the sink. The hand towel rail was loose and hanging off.
The front room window evidently hadn't been cleaned for a long time and there were cobwebs and dead spiders on the sash.
The louvre blinds were missing pully-knobs and missing cover slips at the top, one of which was found propped up in the bedroom. The hall way also contained cobwebs at eye level, so clearly this area hadn't been cleaned.
Although 2 remote controls were provided for tvs in the front room and bedroom, one of them did not work, so we had to keep taking the remotes from room to room. The bedroom contained no storage for clothing and although there was a hanging rail, it contained only 3 hangers, which was insufficent for two people for a week's clothing.

Host and stay need to be more effective at dealing with potential emergency issues. our building fire alarm was triggered by another guest during our stay ( never even came out their room !?). this resulted in a deafening sound throughout all areas of the property. After exiting the building, calls were made to host and stay to advise of the issue. I noted a lack of urgency for 1. a fire alarm going off at a property and any instruction 2. a lack of action to send a maintenance person to fix the main alarm box.
After 30 minutes with 4 guests outside the property, the alarm was eventually reset by a guest at the main box.
no engineer had attended site to correct the central alarm box whilst we stayed for the next three days after the event.

It was a great property that had just about everything you required for a short break. Bed was very comfortable.
Be careful in choosing your apartment at this venue as we were three flights of steep stairs up. Nice views over cricket ground but windows would have benefitted from a clean. Also, no hanging space other than on back of bathroom door.
Sofa was very hard. Dusty blinds and dusty skirtings in bathroom.

WiFi did not work at all! Called and advised no fibre optics in apartment! Mouldy cup in dishwasher and towel rail in toilet coming off the wall.

Great location. Very well equipped and stylish apartment. We stayed in the bowlers retreat which had an unexpected bonus of a little outdoor terrace looking on to the cricket grounds. Central only a ten to fifteen min walk to all main attractions.
The wifi didn’t work and a parking permit would have made life much easier.

The location was great, apartment was very clean, bed was comfy as well as the rest of the furniture. Shower and bathroom facilities I couldn't fault.
Only thing I can fault was lack of storage space for clothes and that there was no Internet but these area very minor issues

Absolutely beautiful little apartment. It is ground floor and has the best view onto the cricket ground, which is beautiful when the sun sets! It is so close to both North and South bay, with a 10 minute walk to both. We parked in the station car park as it was cheaper than other local car parks but we used the free zone discs to park up and unload/load our stuff. Milk was provided which was a lovely touch. The bed was extremely comfy too. Because there was no WiFi, it really allowed me and my partner to spend some time properly connecting. We loved our stay, thank you.

Future guests need to be aware that this apartment
- does not have any WIFI
- has almost no storage space
- has a wet bathroom (not made clear in pictures)
- is a parking nightmare outside (day passes are not provided as they are at other similar properties in the area)
- is not a one-bedroom apartment (as we were told) but is, in fact, a studio apartment

It is in a fantastic location for the cricket ground

Such a welcoming place to stay, absolutely loved the book full of places to go and emergency contacts, so thoughtful. Everything you could possibly need was provided by the property and we had the best weekend stay.
The parking situation could be improved.

Lots of space, lots of facilities available.
Modern aesthetic and a good view from the bedroom. Very comfy bed.
Close to beach & other attractions.

No free parking but other apartments on the road were given free parking tickets. Stairs can be quite tiring especially to apartment 4 (top floor).
The bed sheets had multiple rips and stains on it, and what seemed to be a few pet hairs on the bedding.
When entering the apartment there is quite a noticeable hole in the wall as there is no door stop protecting the wall.
The bottom of the fridge door handle was broken on arrival.
There was a broken glass tumbler also. Some of the dishes and plates appeared to have left over food on them, too.
The toilet seat was only connected to one side so caused it to slip.
The towel holder in the bathroom was poorly fitted so kept rotating.
The sofa had lots of dry marks on it.
The televisions were exceptionally slow & took at least 10 seconds to work when operating it.
Overall, the apartment felt like it needed a deeper clean especially during COVID.

We stayed in the Wicket View Room.
The modern style of the apartment, great for a couple of nights stay but any longer and the stairs become a bit of a pain, the parking becomes a bit of a pain and the Settee isn't very comfortable as its also a bed.
Liked how close it was to the City Centre and to the Beach.
The 6 flights of stairs to get to the apartment, the windows weren't great either, full of Seagull mess and parking is a bit of a pain.
We were staying for 4 nights from Friday until the Tuesday and on the Saturday early evening the Wifi that had been working great disappeared and was no longer available on any device, it was as though it has been turned off. I contacted support who said they would look into this, I phoned back later on as I hadn't heard anything and support confirmed what I had suspected in that the Router for the apartment was in someone else room and it looked like they had unplugged it, so I explained this was important to us as my wife wasn't to well after her second Covid Jab so we were staying in and we weren't able to use any of the Smart TV features in the room or any of the devices we had brought with us and they confirmed they would try to get this resolved asap. Sunday evening, over 24 hours later I contacted again and was basically told by the same person the issue I raised wasn't classed as an emergency so would have to wait, not impressed at all as you can imagine. The next morning from around 10am the Wifi was working again, clearly been turned back on or plugged back in, so we had been without WiFi for over 30 hours which included most of the weekend which I just thought wasn't acceptable when it was pretty obviously it had been unplugged or turned off, the support contact was great until the Sunday when I chased it and was then basically told it was tough.
I was told I would be compensated for us not having Wifi, the offer was to give us 15% off our next stay which was 5% more than you get for being a returning guest, this had a big negative impact on our stay and I expected a bit more.

Apartment has been refurbished recently and it’s stunning
Really nice large rooms and comfortable bed. Big Tv in the lounge
Good location for us to walk on the front to Scalby and to get away quickly further afield to Whitby , Robin Hoods Bay etc
Nice view of the Cricket field from the rear bedroom.
The blinds in the lounge area only come half way down so not private
The shower room is fab but the shower itself is disappointing.... not powerful and hard to get the water to the right temperature.
The sofa in the lounge isn’t comfortable but it can be changed to a sofa bed which helps a bit.
We were asked by email to take our rubbish down to the bins outside when we were leaving but there weren’t any!
The owners hadn’t really got an idea about the best way to park. We were told the day of arrival that the council parking “scratch cards “ hadn’t arrived in time for our stay and we were told to park in a nearby council car park at £9 overnight.
We asked the neighbouring property owner and was told parking is free outside between 5pm and 9am and she very kindly gave us a bundle of parking discs which gave us 2 hours outside if we needed it. We have left them at the property for future use. The neighbour saved us £45 but the owners should have known this. Teething problems I’m sure as was the problem we had getting the key out of the key safe on arrival as the code given via booking. Com was wrong. We rang and the lady who answered gave us the correct code.
All in all the apartment is a lovely place to stay and is very eye catching. If attention is given to the points above it would be 10 out of 10.
