- The apartment is located in the centre of Whitby and is therefore subjected to seagulls noise.
- The apartment is opposite a pub and there can be noise, especially on the weekends.
- The building has a number of floors and the stairs can be tight. Please note Simply Scandi is located on the first floor. The apartment therefore may not be suitable for those less physically able.
Golden Lion Apartments are located in Whitby town centre so you’ll be perfectly situated to explore the many restaurants, cafes and shops on the doorstep.
Nestled on the West Cliff, you’ll find fun arcades and you’ll be able to sample the catch of the day in one of Whitby’s famous fish restaurants which line Pier Road. The Blue Flag West Cliff beach and promenade is just a short 5-minute walk from the property so you can really make the most of your coastal escape.
The other side of Whitby is full of narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques and pubs. Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary. You can also discover the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’.
Step outside of Whitby and you’ll uncover a haven of woodland and moorland. Whitby forms part of the North York Moors National Park so it’s the perfect place for long walks.
Golden Lion Apartments are located in the centre of Whitby so the town can easily be explored on foot.
Whitby train station is just a short 5-minute walk away so villages and towns along the North Yorkshire coast can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.
There are plenty of bus routes throughout Whitby. Hop on the X4 and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes. The X93 travels along the coast to Scarborough. The 95 route features plenty of quaint villages, such as Grosmont and Lealholm.

From the guestbook
The apartment was very well appointed and comfortable - couldnt have asked for more.
No complaints at all - excellent property.
Great view from room. Very good customer care in terms of extras e.g. milk provided, coffee pods provided etc. Even better were the parking permits provided.
Bed was slightly uncomfortable. Location of the flat was very central but next to pub so came back on first night to find two drunks outside the door with one having urinated in the corner. They did apologise though ....
The location and set up was lovely.
It was clean and was set up with everything you needed.v
The stairs we did not realise how narrow the stairs And how steep. As our age range was 66 to 74 but managed. X
location was perfect
A superb place to stay. Location couldn't have been more perfect. Really clean and modern - looks like it has just been refurbished.
Communication with the company was also great - they were in regular contact and fixed a very minor issue on the day. Also really great to get parking included which was simple to use.
Can't fault this place and looking to return!
Excellent location. Alot of stairs to apartment - not clear in the information.
Beds uncomfortable. Too hard.
great little apartment, in a good location
Excellent location right in the heart of Whitby town fantastic views of the river. Clean and modern apartment with all the facilities you need for self catering. Rooms are a decent size with underfloor heating. Welcome pack with all the instructions for all the appliances. Good size bathroom with modern suite. Comfy clean bedroom. Great communication via text/email regarding our stay. Pets welcome ?? We have been visting Whitby for several years and have stayed in the most popular hotels/b&b's and the Golden Lion is by far the best we have ever stayed in. Definitely 5 stars ????????
Lack of wardrobe space, only 6 clothes/coat hooks ( 3 in the bedroom and 3 in hallway), Bedroom consists of bed, 2 bedside tables and chest of draws (3 draws). Its understandable that you can't' fit a wardrobe in but the bedroom would benefit from the removal of the hooks in the bedroom and replaced with a wall mounted clothes rail.
Perfect location, right in the centre, 1 min walk to the harbour and 5 min walk to the beach. Stunning apartment with everything you could possibly need. Beautifully decorated. Amazing shower.
Very comfortable in all respects. The kitchen is great, with enough equipment to actually use it and cook meals. Great shower!
We struggled to get in on our first night, and had to call a couple of people for help. The door has an electronic lock with a display which says “show card” on it. In order to access the keypad to enter the code you do not need to show a card, but just cover the card reader with your palm. This was a little confusing, and could have been made clearer.
in the middle of where we wanted to be , so good
heating dodgy get one thermostat to work then the other didn’t . so one room ok the other cold
The modern spec of the apartment. Any queries were sorted out very quickly. Central town position with view of the harbour and lovely at night when lit up.
Great stay couldn’t get oven to work but we loved it and would come back. Great location comfortable bed and stay.
Fantastic apartment and an amazing location, beautiful view out of the living room/ kitchen windows too! Apartment was immaculate on arrival and all the amenities you could need were available! Couldn’t recommend more!
Modern décor and a spectacular view of the Whitby swing bridge.
3 flights of tight turning stairs making it tricky to get luggage installed.
very comfy warm and homely will be staying again
Location was brilliant and the free parking was good. Very easy access and keyless which was even better!
The bed was extremely uncomfortable which put such a downer on our stay and we couldn’t wait to get back to our own! Which is such a shame because the location and place was beautiful. Could of done with spare pillows and a blanket. It was quite noisy, but I do not think it would have kept us up if the bed was comfortable as we would have probably slept through it.
good location nice apartment
Clean, brilliant location, warm
The apartment was clean, tidy and very central
The heating needs looking at, the main area wasn't as warm as the bedroom.
Please advise customers that the key pads are activated by putting your hand over it. We had to ring up, not clear on instructions sent out.
The bed was a little too hard for us.
Entrance, cold kitchen heating not working room alone not warm enough, heated towel rail not working, uncomfortable sofa.
couldn’t get the underfloor heating to work and the bed was very uncomfortable my partner slept on sofa most nights
The location was amazing, close to everything. Interior was lovely and had everything you needed.
The access at the main front door is a little misleading as there’s two possible key pads, one which is metal which holds something inside and a digital one which has the word ‘card’ on it on the door. So we presumed the code was for the metal box and would get the card to gain access…but if you hold your hand up to the digital key pad it lights up with numbers.
Excellent location close to everything we needed. Really good facilities.
Maybe a sign on the old door advising that it's not in use and to go to the other door.
Perfect location! Nice lounge/kitchen area, great TV, nice bathroom with excellent shower!
Too many tight steps up to the apartment, bed & pillows too hard, heating didn't work, excessive noise from flat above, free parking miles away and all full, had to pay for harbour car park!
Location was brilliant
Nothing not to like except all stairs ??
Absolutely incredible location - right in the centre of town. The flat is lovely - great design, very comfortable, and underfloor heating. We had a great time!
location, modern & clean
Great central location.
Clean apartment with everything you could need to make and prepare snacks
Bathroom great with big shower.
Fantastic base for exploring the Whitby area
Perfect location to start our walk around Cumberland Way.
no USB charger plug/plate for the iPhone - would have made a huge difference for us.
Excellent Central location, very modern clean apartment with all the facilities needed. Even down to tea bags, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, bleach, bin liners, coffee pods, basically too much to mention.
We spent very pleasant days in this lovely place. Well located, with all ameneties around.
The loft is well decorated and very functional.
Thank you very much.
Andrea, Lucas & Oliver
Excellent accommodation, modern, new and clean. All the facilities needed (and more!) Fantastic location, dog friendly.
Location in centre of Whitby was convenient for our short stay. Apartment facilities good and lived the decor. We used pay & display parking as the free parking was further away ( but at £10 for 24 hours, no issue)
The pillows could have been better and we couldn’t get the TV to work
Samantha Izzabella (Izzy)
Perfect , modern, clean, super comfy with all the things you could possibly need, couldn’t be more central! We loved it, stayed 4 nights and had a real great stay!
A fantastic flat in a beautiful location.
Everything you need for a self contained stay right in the heart of town with everything on your doorstep should you want it.
An amazing stay ?
Very disappointng be aware the is a lot of building work going on right near the bedroom of this apartment and they wake you up at 7am,along with the seagulls, the flat has a rental management company Host & Stay North Yorkshire, we only managed to stay 2 nights apparently the apartment was brand new & developed a leak whilst we were there, the rental company were not great they turned up to look at it and basically turfed us out of the apartment, then it took them all day to get back to us to tell us that we had to leave as they were switching the water off. They found us a replacement place which they stated was 30-40 minutes away from whitby which was actually 45 minutes away (Saltburn by The Sea) and expected us to stay there without even seeing it, we had to chase them for the picutres we were left with no choice but to move mainly because they got in touch with us so late. The new place was beautiful but extremely difficult to find with no accurate or clear instructions as this was also brand new, all in all a pretty stressful start to our 1 weeks holiday and for all the distruption and hassle we had they had the cheek to offer us a 25% discount if we booked another stay through them NO THANKS not the way you treat your customers. Salt burn on Sea is beautiful and has a beautiful beach we would definately stay in that area again and the apartment there but sadly wouldnt want go throught this managment company even with 25% off!.
Our stay in the Golden Lion Apartments was incredibly disappointing and we left feeling like we had wasted £300 a night on accommodation that was very overpriced.
We stayed in the Modern Industrial apartment, which they have done a great job at attempting to make very nice, but the apartment has many flaws and it didn’t feel like it was ready yet for guests.
The water in the shower does not go down the drain whilst you are showering, so you’re standing in a pool of water the entire time you shower.
The floors are paper thin, we were kept awake every night by the people staying above us, we could hear their full conversations and every footstep would shake our ceiling.
The ceiling lights in the apartment between the bedroom and the lounge room are on a sensor, with no switch, so if you’re staying in the apartment with a dog like we were, every time you’re dog moves around during in the night the bright lights turn on. They also sometimes turned on when the people in the apartment upstairs would walk, the vibrations would trigger the light.
The flat screen television in the apartment didn’t work, it didn’t appear to have been set up properly and the remote didn’t work for the tv. They had someone come over to try and fix it but it still didn’t work. The television screen was also smashed in the corner which looked like it may have happened when it was installed.
The bedroom is also overlooked by properties behind, so if you have the blinds open people can see straight in. Including workman currently on the scaffold next door. So you have to keep the black out blinds closed and have no natural light. Some sheet curtains over the black out blinds to keep closed during the day would provide some privacy.
The apartment was generally very dusty with residue from the recent building works, all the indoor plastic plants still had tags on them like it had all been finished very rushed.
