Great place I would stay in again. Great location, clean and we'll decorated. parking spot right outside a bonus. Highly recommend.



Lovely quiet location with allocated parking space. Just a 10 minute walk away from Whitby town centre. The apartment was clean, spacious with modern with facilities. Would definitely stay here again



Clean. Kitchen has everything you need. Both room has hair dryer. Very nice view from the living room n main bedroom.









The location of the appartment was on the second floor with lift or stairs in an extremely well kept appartment block possitioned overlooking the river .It is loccated on quiet recently built estate of appartments
Nothing .It was a perfect holiday



First and foremost the location was absolutely perfect which included private off street parking.The property itself was way above expectations with a reasonable check in time (4.00pm)and an excellent checkout(12.00) which allows you to have a morning enjoying Whitby and not having to move your car.The centre of Whitby is only a 10 minute walk.
As we are keen walkers the location is perfect for doing The Cleveland way or into The North Yorkshire Moors.
To be perfectly honest there is nothing in this instance that we didn't like unless you start a "nit picking"contest that some people seem to absolutely revel in with reviews I have personally read.



Great little apartment in a fantastic location. Fully equipped with everything you could need. One bit of advice is to clarify the bedroom situation ie single beds/king size before you travel.



Perfect location, beautiful views over the river, we could even see the abbey on the headland
TV controls confused me, maybe it's an age thing ?



We liked the location and the view.
On arrival we discovered the key was not inside the box. After a phone call it was discovered that the cleaner was still getting the apartment ready and we were told we could go up to the room and she would let us in. We knocked on the door but she didn't know about our arrival so we were left on the landing till 4.50pm ( we arrived just after 4pm)



Great apartment quiet location within easy walking distance to town.
Bed not very comfortable hard mattress other wise great.






The accommodation was comfortable and modern with excellent facilities and was in a good location with a allocated parking space.
There was an issue with the check in time.On the emails I received it said 16.00 . We arrived at 16.05 and the cleaner was still there and she was led to believe it was 17.00.



it's opened Squeeking doors need the chains oiling that automatically shut the door after could do with a chair in one of the bedrooms that didn't have one a bath mat would be useful .






it was clean and spacious, in a very good location, beautiful views into the Marina. Everything you needed home from home.
There wasn’t anything to complain about, except if you had 2 cars because of 2 couples this would be a disadvantage but this wasn’t an issue for us.



Brilliant location. And parking.
Key box could have had a flat no. Only 2 out of 6 were numbered and we had to try various ones for the correct one.



nearly everything with a fab view
the tv



Fantastic flat in a great location. Loved the views out of the window and even got to do some seal spotting. Furnishings were lovely, beds were really big and comfortable. Great to have a parking space so close to town. Flat had everything we could need.






This is a really fab apartment, just outside of the busy town but just a hop and a skip to where all the action is. The property was very clean and is probably the most well equipped holiday let we have stayed in. Great views from the Juliet balcony and all the rooms are very spacious with a lot of storage space. Will definitely stay again if back in Whitby!









Lovely apartment, prefect spot.
