Neighborhood
There are a number of beaches for you to choose from in Scarborough. 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!

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 popular spot for locals and tourists alike, here you can see amazing bands, singers and comedians. The Sky Trail Adventure and Peasholm Park is perfect for all ages.

We highly recommend booking a seat at the famous Stephen Joseph Theatre to experience some first-class drama, music, films and comedy or make a splash at the Alpamare water park with outdoor pools, a wave machine and exhilarating state-of-the-art water rides.

Excellent, central location with a public car park opposite. Very modern decor and finishes. Good size lounge with views of the harbour. The roof terrace was a great feature. Fantastic bathroom and easy to use 'state of the art' shower.
Despite the fact it had been cleaned the attention to detail was missing. Floors not 'hoovered' properly, glass surfaces not cleaned. A couple of desk/pedestal fans would of been appreciated.

Location, convenience
not enough soft seating in the living room. could be doing with another sofa. one of us had to sit on a dining room chair.
Broken blind (although this didn’t affect our stay)

Modern, clean and welcoming and a very convenient location.
Cutlery had water marks where not dried properly and the freezer box in the fridge was full of ice and needed defrosting. These are by no means deal breakers, but make a difference between our score of 9 and getting a perfect 10. Will definitely book again for next year.

absolutely brilliant flat, exceptionally clean, well laid out and a really nice up to date interior, no expense spared, hall way/staircase very clean, a well maintained and professional looking holiday flat
cant fault the flat one single bit……………10/10
could have had a washing machine but there’s plenty of laundry places within walking distance

There property was very close to the beach and marina and it had a car park right opposite. Really nice looking from outside and lovely on the inside. It was secure with key and fob access so felt safe.
The overall layout of apartment was lovely.
Had a great rain shower in the bathroom, possibly one of my favourite things about the apartment. TV had YouTube and Netflix, good to keep kids entertained in the evening.
Little touches like a stool in the bathroom for little ones to reach the sink was nice.
Loved there was someone you could message at anytime and they would get back to you quickly.
The cleanliness of the kitchen cutlery and dishes wasn’t great and I had to wash them before use. The kettle had a lot of limescale built up inside that put me off using it.
The hairdryer had lots of dust on it, I presume it had not been used in some time hence the dust.
Not a major deal but for the money paid would expect there to be better cleaning between guests.
This is the only thing that let this property down - if cleanliness has been better I would have given this property 10/10 (note to owners) would put pictures up but it would not do property justice as it was a good property.
Would still recommend and would stay there again - hope owners take feedback onboard.

Stayed in Apartment No.1 Berkano. The apartment was exceptionally clean, bright and nicely laid out. The beds very comfortable and location is perfect.
The only minor gripe is that there is a lot of noise from the street early in the morning, however given the location this is to be expected and there's not much that can be done about this.

no lamps in the lounge, only ceiling lights which were too bright at night. A lamp would make all the difference.
Parking very expensive at £9 per day. Would be good if a permit was included. Very noisy seagulls even at night. Definitely need earplugs

The location was amazing, parking was perfect, we were very happy to have apartment 1, the outdoor area on the roof was lovely with amazing views. The apartment itself was very modern.
The bins were not emptied on our arrival and some of the plates and glasses were not clean (marks and food stains). the green blanket on the bed was also dirty.

We had an amazing stay at the merchants quarters. The flat was beautiful and had everything we needed. The location is perfect, 2 second stroll to the south beach. Check-in and check-out so easy with the lock box and great communication from the hosts. The roof top terrace was just the icing on the cake with incredible views over the sea. Can't rate this place highly enough and we will certainly be back!

Lovely apartment, nice and clean, wish we could of stayed longer, would definitely go back.
Struggled to get hot water sometimes, could have done with some information on how to use the oven and hob, i thought there was no microwave at first but there was a setting on the grill for the microwave, couldn't work out how to use the hob though. Remote in bedroom didn't work, might need new batteries. The door for the boiler didn't shut and when you have young kids with you it's not really a place you want your kids opening.

Location was good, very spacious apartment, very modern property. Beds comfy, shower excellent. Good Tv with good choice of channels.
No microwave, bedside light in second bedroom was broken (working but broken). We requested an early check in but was told this wasn’t available (turned up and tried at 2pm and key was available so got in) this was disappointing as had luggage we needed to drop off, feel host could’ve made more effort to accommodate this. Asked for cot and high chair and these were left in wrong apartment so I had to retrieve them myself. Again pretty poor service. Think the hosting via email lacks a personal touch. Found I was bombarded with emails and not enough attention to detail and service was given. Tried calling a few times and not sure what hours are worked but found it difficult to be able to speak to someone who could actually help. Not sure id use someone so “hands off” in future

location to South Bay
heating had not been on after the last occupancy. We arrived at 3pm on Friday, opened the door and we could see our breath inside the property. Turned the heating in immediately to 30 degrees and swiftly left. can back at 8pm and the flat was still very cold. The radiator in the kids room (4 and 7 year old) was not working properly and kids could not sleep in that temperature. I called the property manager who advised he would sent a portable heater over the next day. That night we all slept in same bed which was horrific! It’s now Monday and we are still awaiting the heater. I advised I would not be paying for the first night but I’ve still yet to hear back as apparently the property manager didn’t have authority to do this!! The entrance steps were filthy with muddy footprints everywhere! the flat was very very noisy with party goers walking past and the flat has very thin windows also resulting in heat loss. We will definitely not be staying at the Merchant Quarters again.

Size and shape of the studio suite, the location, the view from the windows (sea, castle, busy colourful neighbourhood), the kitchen. "Fresh beauty" is the term that comes to mind.
The round dining table is rather small but seats 3 OK. The kitchen tap was dodgy. And I did not enjoy the coffee capsules on offer for the coffee machine. Easy to see that I am complaining about first-world problems :-) We fully enjoyed Merchants Quarters.

Unfortunately our key fob for apartment 1 failed for the external door.We did report it .Had we not also had keys for apartment 2 that could have been a real issue

Ideally situated, clean and modern. Clear views of the Harbour. Complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, milk and washing liquid. Great shower, with Complimentary shower gel and liquid soap. Comfortable beds
Can be a little noisy at times but that's the result of being so close to everything. We stayed in the top apartment which would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues as there are over 30 steep steps.

Not really a negative but I would have liked there to be a lamp in the living room because unless you have the main lights on you sit in the dark (or light from the TV).
Also front door doesn't close fully until you pull it closed which makes a bit of a bang, not a negative but just worry about the noise for other people in the building.

The apartment was very new, clean, modern and well appointed.

The roof terrace, which is played down in the listing, is really great with views over the fishing bay and definitely enhanced our stay on a sunny weekend.

The shower has four different settings and was also-a lovely surprise. The complementary handwash hand lotionNx shower gel smell divine. It’sthe little things like this that elevate stay in accommodation.

I would stay again no problem, other than for the location which was very busy near the South Bay (in the age of Covid). There was a constant stream of people and cars outside the bay windows which made me think it would suit a younger clientele who want to be in the thick of it.

There were a few minor teething points, such as the blinds stick and need tweaking, one fell off whilst we were there although we were able to fix it ourselves, plus the TV room might benefit from a rug as the tv sound is a bit tinny. .A dishwasherwould be great for squeaky clean reassurance!

Overall we thought it was a great place,and the service via app was responsive.

My wife and I stayed in The Merchants Quarters, 'Berkano' apartment recently and we were most impressed with it. I suspect each of the three apartments here are a mirror image of each other in this very tastefully renovated old building near the lifeboat station in Scarborough.
Everything about our stay in the Merchants Quarters was perfect. The location was great, being near the lifeboat station and harbour with public car parking directly opposite at only £9.00 per 24 hrs. Prior communication was excellent as was the ease of check in.
The quality of refurbishment was outstanding, in our opinion, with high quality furniture and fittings to all rooms and the contemporary decor design was much to our liking. The kitchen was well fitted with excellent utilities, crockery and glassware.
We had booked The Merchants Quarters for 4 nights and in our view the price we paid represented good value for money and I would highly recommend it.
