The apartment is situated in a purpose built block on a moderate hill coming up from the town; it is about 10-15 minutes walk to Co-op supermarket, bus and train station.
Access to the third floor apartment is by lift or stairs from basement car park. Does take a bit of time to get in or out of the building with several locks and keypads; but having said that, it is by default, very secure
The welcome book had been put in a cupboard and things like wifi password and water heating guide [like don't touch it!] weren't immediately obvious.
The apartment has no pleasant views to speak of as it overlooks adjacent housing.
It has an enforced air extraction system which seemed very loud and intrusive at night and we had to turn it off on the fuse box [instructions provided]
Kitchen was comprehensively stocked with all the necessities; little/none in the way of cleaning bits and bobs. I would personally have appreciated a second tea towel and some scales. No milk etc provided so a shop necessary before having even a cuppa on arrival. Bathroom wall mirror? That would have been nice.
Lots of electronic gadgetry..Didn't quite get my head round turning on the radio with an I pad, but I'm just a grump! Where's my tranny?
We had a lovely week in Whitby and very much appreciate Richard's apartment...the above comments are minor niggles really.
Big plus +++
Well laid out, clean and tidy, tastefully furnished and decorated with high quality fittings, furniture and bedding.
This apartment is really well looked after and is ideal for a family of 4 for a short break.
There is a car parking space in a secure area.
I really like the fact that there was a well equipped kitchen with some basics in place (food, cleaning items) so we didn't have to go out late on day 1 to stock up.
Location was ideal being walking distance from the centre of Whitby.
Also was a short drive from Robin Hoods Bay and the Yorkshire Moors.
If I was in Whitby again I would stay here again.
This was an excellent apartment furnished to the highest standard. We absolutely loved it! Fantastic king sized bed and en-suite bathroom. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we could have possibly needed. Loved all the little extras like games, dvds, sky tv and the hairdryers and straighteners in the bedroom. We particularly loved the stunning canvas artwork of views of Whitby in all the rooms. Fantastic value for money and loved the central location. Very secure parking and even spaces for visiting family, a brilliant stay, thank you very, very much
This is a stunning apartment in a very clean modern building. My wife and I felt at home the moment we opened the door. Everything needed for a great holiday is provided. Play station, ipod, huge TV, Sky box and even a choice of lots of DVD's to watch. A large bed in one bedroom, and 2 very comfortable settees in the lounge/diner. The kitchen is well appointed with good quality appliances. The owner has provided several folders with lots of information i.e. places to eat, drink, visit etc. Easy downhill walk to Whitby centre, although a bit if a climb back, but it helped to keep us fit! There is a lovely park across the road, although quite hilly, where we stopped and watch squirrels several times. This is possibly the best rental apartment we have stayed in (and we've been in a lot).
Wow, what an apartment. We have been to these apartments for the last 4 years and can’t fault them one bit. As soon as we walked in we instantly felt relaxed. The apartment was incredibly clean and had everything that we needed for the week. We have a 2 year old child and there was plenty of room in the second bedroom to put his travel cot in as well as the 2 single beds. There was plenty of storage with a wardrobe and drawers. There was also a television and games console with games included. Our son had his own bathroom which was superb. The master bedroom was absolutely amazing. I literally wanted to take the super king size bed home with me!! It was unbelievably comfortable and extremely spacious. There was also a hairdryer and GHD hair straightness in the bedroom which meant I had less to pack. The ensuite was clean and spacious with a large shower. In the entrance there was plenty of room for our pushchair, shoes and bags. The living area was absolutely perfect for us or it would equally suite couples alike. The kitchen is well equipped to cook a meal and sit down as a family in the dining area. We also sat each morning at the table eating breakfast altogether. There is a dishwasher so no need to wash up. Bonus!!One night we put our son to bed and ordered a delicious Chinese take away from one of the leaflets provided. It was great to have sky and array of DVDS so each night we were able to watch a different film, have a drink and relax. The living room has a 40 inch smart TV, ipad and even a brand new Bose wireless sound system. They literally have thought of everything.
Whitby itself is just the perfect place to visit for either a weekend or for a main holiday either for young couples or for families. We spent a few days in Whitby itself, on the beach, shopping and eating out. There is so much to do in the surrounding area if you have a car (I forgot to mention the secure underground car park) . Each time we visit we literally find something new to do. This year we took the train to Pickering stopping where Heartbeat was filmed. We would highly recommend this day out. We then went to Flamingo Land which was fantastic and very well organised. There is also a wonderful park two minutes walk away across the road that our 2 year old loved. It has lots to do with sponge flooring for safety. Pretty gardens surround the park too that you can walk around. We would highly recommend this apartment and will most defiantly be visiting again. We absolutely love it there and wouldn’t change a single thing.
The apartment is great and everything was clean and in good condition. We really enjoyed our stay and our son loved to have the park just crossing the road. The park is wonderful for children and grown-ups since there is an art gallery and a museum inside the park. Whitby is such a delightful place¡¡¡ and the fish and chips delicious¡¡¡ We really enjoyed the apartment and we will come back for sure.
Stayed here with my brother and his wife. Ideal as the apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and is really well placed for walking into town (about 500 yards downhill) which is important as car parking in Whitby is not for the faint hearted
Everything in the apartment was top notch and the owner had thought of everything (apart from milk in the fridge, only a tiny niggle) there being tea, coffee, sugar and a cupboard full of 'staples' which could be used and replaced. Would happily say that this was one of the best apartments we have stayed in in the U.K. Thank you
