From reading some of the other reviews, you could be forgiven for thinking you were heading directly into Fawlty Towers, but nothing could be further from the truth! I suppose it may be the luck of the draw depending on which accommodation you get but we booked a 2-room apartment and that's exactly what we got - only it was so much nicer than we could have wished for. We stayed in Starfish 2 - a beautiful, modern apartment with all the facilities you could wish for. We had a full kitchen with cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster and loads of utensils - no dishwasher, but hey, you can't have everything!. The lounge area was lovely with a sofa, two chairs, a glass table and a funky freestanding remote control heater! For inhouse entertainment, we had freeview widescreen TV, a DVD player, CD player, a few books and lots of useful area information. There were two good size bedrooms (one double, one twin) with very comfortable beds, wardrobes and a small dresser; and finally a beautifully appointed bathroom with excellent shower. The location was superb - minutes to sea front and shops and opposite a very nice chippy! Parking, which I can see could be a problem in Whitby with the narrow streets and restrictions, was swiftly dealt with as we booked a space via front desk just up the road and then did what any sensible visitor to the town should do: we left the car there and explored everywhere on foot! Would happily recommend Starfish 2 and would certainly stay here again
