Lovely, central apartment, with all the facilities you need. Comfortable, spacious and like a home from home.
booked literally the day we wanted to come and Sharan make it all possible. very clean and comfortable. loved the quirky layout, directly opposite the train station.
LInskill Square is a beautifully presented apartment in the centre of Whitby. It is just opposite the train and bus station so is ideal for visitors arriving on public transport , for people arriving by car it has the benefit of a car park space just five minutes walk away. As with all of Sharan's properties it is tastefully decorated and most important very clean and equipped with high quality kitchen essentials and homely touches.
We loved the quaint courtyard setting but I personally found the noise from the traffic outside distracting especially early on a morning,this is probably because we live in a very quiet area with little passing traffic. If you want a central location you have to expect a certain level of noise from delivery vans etc, most people probably would not notice it's just that I am a very light sleeper. This is our third stay at one of Sharan's properties and we would definitely book with her again.
First, the positives:-
The apartment is beautiful, quirky, well equipped and clean and it is set in a lovely little courtyard.
The beds are comfy and there are plenty of toys and dvds to keep the kids happy.
The communication with Sharan was excellent.
The parking space is a bonus and only a 5 minute walk away.
The unfortunate negatives:-
With the apartment being located opposite the bus and train stations and with pubs, nightclub, Indian restaurant etc all within a few yards it made for a very noisy saturday night (shouting, arguing and drunken behaviour in the street outside at 3am)
The quirky nature of the apartment means that the bathroom is at the opposite end to the bedrooms (through the lounge, down some steps, through the kitchen, up a flight of stairs) A bit of a pain but obviously un-avoidable due to the layout.
If I was being picky I would say that the bathroom, while being very nicely tiled and clean, consists of rather low quality/ flimsy fittings which does not fit with the quality of the rest of the apartment.
The apartment is great, despite the slight negatives, but, because of the noisy and busy location, we would not stay again.
We booked this as a last minute break. It looked fabulous on the photos. Upon arrival we certainly were not disappointed. Very spacious, very clean, everything you would possibly need for a holiday was provided, including dvds and kids games for those rainy days. The beds were the comfiest I have ever used. Like a home from home. Would certainly consider staying again. Literally a few minutes walk from the main cobbled streets of Whitby. And a bonus, a parking space provided too. Parked the car and left it there till we returned home, nice to have a few days without thinking about transport. Thank you so much for making our first break in 10 years a memorable one.
Perfect location. Could walk to everything. Home from home. Nice accommodation and well equipped. Lots of eateries nearby. Owner left amenities which was a nice touch. First time to Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. Will definitely be back. Have recommended to friends already
