“Short break in the centre of Whitby”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

My husband, myself and our small dog stayed at Newton House, flat 1 for four nights... I was seriously worried regarding the parking adjacent to the apartments after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor .. But if you have passed your driving test i really think there is no need to worry , i will put detailed photographs on here to show access and spaces , The actual access onto Newton street is more of a problem as its on a very tight corner and to leave Newton street if you have a longish vehicle as we have then you will need to drive across the main road and reverse back to be able to leave , There is a very steep driveway leading to the parking bays and at the bottom there is parking for around 8 vehicles, the bays outside have more room but smaller cars will fit under the covered areas... i must admit if the car park is full as is possibly the case in mid summer then i should imagine this could be a problem and cause a lot of manouvering , being in the centre of Whitby its unlikely that you would need to use the car unless you wanted to explore the gorgeousness of Yorkshire !!
The staff in Silver street reception were lovely, helpful and kind .. couldn't fault them .. They had put the heating on for us in the apartment so it was lovely and warm when we arrived on a cold February day, the apartment was modern and quite large ... Ok i agree the furniture was Ikea and the mattress was a bit on the firm side but we had no problems with it .. The shower in the bathroom was great, plenty of hot water and very modern... the kitchen was fine and had a microwave oven and toaster and the lounge was comfortable with a flat screen tv and some rather nice standard lights. Everything was spotlessly clean.
There is an Indian restaurant who will deliver to the property and two nice pubs two minutes away which serve food up to 8pm (in winter) ... We didn't pay loads for this place and its one of the few apartments where dogs are welcome... We think its fine and nothing to complain about ...

Stayed at discovery last weekend and found the place to be very nice in every way very clean great sized rooms ours had a nice kitchen so could eat in if you wanted the breakfast was excellent and set you up for the day
It is situated in the heart of the town so close for everything you need in Whitby
The staff were nice and helpful and in the basement there is a small but ample sized swimming pool that can be booked in 40 min sessions so overall would recommend this as a great stay

Our first visit to Whitby and this hotel. the rooms were spotless, the decor excellent. Breakfasts freshly cooked not kept lukewarm on a buffet. The staff were very friendly, cheerful and helpful. I doubt the hotel could be improved and we will definitely be back. I have recommended to colleagues and friends.

Returned for a winter break just a couple of days away. Had a nice comfortable apartment away from the main building. It is nice not to have a standard b n b room. We enjoy the extra space and the style of the rooms. The accommodation had just been decorated and was fresh and clean. We did not book breakfast but took it 1 day, we found it cheaper than the local cafe and a lot more value for money.
The staff were great and they always try to help. It is also nice to get a little extra with the 10% discount for returning guests.

Booked a double room and was upgraded to 3 bedroom apartment (Adventure) which was lovely and clean and very spacious, only complaint with the apartment was a window that wouldnt close.

We made use of the swimming pool which was unlike the pictures, it was quite dark and freezing cold! we braved as we thought it would be a shame not to after hiring it for the 40 minutes, however there was another couple that refused to get in. The sauna was quite laughable realy, my husband likened it to a airing cupboard and i had to agree, fortunately we were not charged for the sauna as the pool was so cold and we had already paid for that.

Breakfast was very poor, we opted for the full english breakfast and the bacon was hardly cooked so the fat on it was disgusting (i prefer mine crispy) my husband wouldnt even eat it though and he is not a fussy eater! also the sausage was low quality and the toast extremely burnt!

That being said we still would return, however we would eat breakfast elsewhere and get some value for our money! Receptionist was very polite and helpful.

4 of us stayed overnight in Starfish House Apt 3. We arrived at 11am and popped in to reception to enquire where to park. The room was ready and we were quickly checked in, chose our rooms, one twin and one double, and headed out. We were amused by the signs referred to in another review regarding the "Kipper Surcharge" but everywhere was clean and tidy so no complaints. Breakfast was lovely, and for £30 a head B&B I would certainly return
We didn't use the pool or scalextric track but would have done if the weather was awful

Stayed here for two nights in apartment style room separate from main building. This was good as there was no noise and we had a lovely view. For breakfast it was a two minute walk to the main building. It was a good feed and set everyone up for the day. We did not have much interaction with the staff or management as we only went to main building for breakfast and had our own little complex but when we did see the staff they were friendly and polite.It is a great location within easy walking distance of all main attractions and bars. Also the cleanliness was especially impressive. Absolutely spotless!!
I would highly recommend to anyone and is fantastic value for money.
