So the apartments were pretty nice although completely ikea'd out so obviously no expense spared, the wifi was awful and never worked. The pool was disgusting, not sure you can call it a pool more like a puddle at 1m deep throughout, there was a white scum across the top and it was full of floating black bits YUK! The... More

This is our first time of staying with Discovery and I am not dissapointed in the accommodation. The rooms are spacious and homely, the bed and sets are comfortable, it has a shower and kitchenette with microwave and fridge and oven. It is also very close to the beach and the town center. I would stay here again. The only... More

Very impressed with the check in process, there isn't one! Discovery sent us the combinations to their front gate, the apartment building and our room by text. How easy is that?! Lovely room and facilities. Impressive beach scene in the shower and chain and rope balcony.

Come back to the discovery accommodation every year as its in an ideal location but each year I can see the starfish apartment going down hill. Ripped and missing blinds and some didn't even close, uncomfortable single bed mattress and that's it for the apartment. I wish the the other guests would respect other people stopping in the apartments as... More

There are a few Discovery Accommodations and we stayed in the annex Sandcastle which was basically a room in a converted building with 2 other rooms. Narrow staircase with a turn in it and no real handrail - not good for carrying cases and for someone like me with a bad back I did suffer to climb them, thankfully it's... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set at different locations from the popular West Cliff to the glorious Pannett Park, Discovery Accommodation is just 5 - 10 minutes' walk from the sandy Whitby Beach. Our guests have use of an indoor heated swimming pool and infra-red sauna for their own private use at an additional fee. Both very popular so we advise pre-booking these facilities. The bright and airy bedrooms each have a TV, hot drinks facilities and a private bathroom. Some of our rooms feature a fully equipped kitchen and living area, and all have fresh, modern decor. We have a range of properties varying from our popular and modern Town House, to our traditional Discovery Cottage. We look forward to welcoming guests in our stylish lounge office. ... more   less
