Harbourside Apartments
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Perfect location, welcomed by the friendly host to a parking space(included in price) 30m from the apartment. We had a harbour view from the well equipped lounge/kitchen, all rooms are contemporary and comfortable. A great place to relax, very chilled inside yet in a prime foreshore spot, nice to watch the world / boats / seagulls go by!

Also included was a beach front chalet in the North Bay, free bus travel too! The chalet was fantastic, equipped with deck chairs, table + chairs, body board, beach toys etc we were even given a cool box, beach towels and a tea towel too!

A perfect choice and would visit again, our 7 yr old said it was the bet he has been to, Scarborough was a gem too.......

We were collected at the train station by our friendly host and driven to our apartment. The accommodation was spacious and clean with everything needed for our stay. The restaurants were close by and of excellent quality and reasonably priced
Certainly a place to which we would return.

We have just returned today from a break at Harbourside apartments in Scarborough. We stayed in the same apartment as the previous reviewer, flat 6. We had read all the reviews before we booked and did think they sounded too good to be true, but trust me they are amazing, location, Victoria and James hospitality, and the beach chalet cannot be faulted. Not only free arking but Victoria met us and James waited in the car park to save us a space then gave us a free car park badge which we used for our stay. When I mentioned that my daughter was coming on the Saturday and staying overnight in a different hotel James even gave us a free arking permit for her car! You must book the beach chalet for your free day, it is a great day out with everything you need on site, even if the weather is not brilliant you can sit inside and look over the sea. We have stayed in a few different hotels etc in Scarborough over the years but we have now been spoilt and would not stay anywhere else. I won't repeat everything which was said in the previous review except to say it is all true, will certainly return.

Room Tip: Top floor maxing views but no lift, there was the offer of someone to help with our luggage though.

We anticipated checking in at 3pm so planned to explore Scarborough beforehand, however we received a phone call from Victoria to ask what time we were arriving and she said she would have the apartment ready for us from 12.30pm and also had saved us a car parking space! We were met on arrival by Victoria and James, and James took our luggage up to the apartment while we parked the car. In fact during the whole break we can't say we have ever stayed anywhere where we have been looked after so much, nothing was too much trouble.
The apartment we stayed in which was numer 6 was beautiful. It is tastefully furnished,modern and extremely well equiped, very comfortable and large flat screen HD tv's in the lounge and the bedroom! There is a large wetroom clean towels and the bedding looks brand new. But the best bit about it is the views over the harbour which are spectacular, especially when the sun is going down.
The location is suberb as it's right in the middle of all the amenities, compared to the Sands apartments on the North Bay which we also considered. There's plenty of places nearby to eat and drink. I'd recommend the steak at Anton's Bar and Grill. It's rather pricey,but worth it.
Scarborough is a lovely place to visit and I'd definately recommend visting Peasholm Park especially when they recreate the naval battles on the lake, which has been a feature of the park for many years. Also, the beach on the north bay is lovely, made all the more fantastic with the use of the free beach chalet which is superbly equipped and has deckchairs, buckets and spades, plus indoor table and chairs with kettle, plates and cutlery, sink and indoor lighting for changing purposes.
The only thing to bear in mind with Scarborough is that it is a hilly destination, although there is a tram that you can take up to the town, as with the apartment there is no lift. However do not let this put you off in the slightest, it's the best mini-break we have ever been on in the UK to date and we will definately be back!

Room Tip: the higher the apartment the better the view although you have to contend with the stairs!

This is the second time we have been to the Harbourside Apartments and it was just as amazing as the first time. Victoria as usual was her amazing self and welcomed us on arrival also phoning us to see when we would arrive so she could get us a parking space, I have never had service so friendly. The apartments were just as fresh and clean as the last time and very modern. The views from the apartments are so beautiful and the lovely sitting room really makes it special. We will return again as the staff and service is second to none and it made our holiday. And also the use of the beach chalet for the day with a free bus pass is a winner!!1
Thanks again.

When we arrived I was totally unsure from the outside, but the apartment was just perfect. Extremely clean and just everything provided. Victoria was the perfect host and nothing to much trouble. I fell in love with Scarborough and would return to the apartment tomorrow.

We stayed here for a few days in May and found the apartment to be spotless, well furnished, with everything you need. The welcome pack was really appreciated everything you need for breakfast for the first morning and a welcome cup of coffee on arrival. We loved the free beach hut which was very well equipped and the open top bus to get there was great. Got a very warm welcome from Victoria and nothing was too much trouble. Would definately stay here again and will recommend to friends.
