“Cosy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

Una is warm and friendly and makes her guests feel very welcome. She also ensures that they are equipped with absolutely everything, even down to dog bowls! The location of the holiday flats are ideal for exploring the town centre, Peasholm Park. Excellent spot if you are a cricket fan as Scarborough Cricket Club is less than a minute away. There are lots of restaurants and shops close by. You can park the car outside and not worry about it until its time to leave. Strange though that past guests haven't mentioned that the building, both interior and exterior is looking tired and is in need of decoration, as well as some general DIY.

As a side note, North Marine Road was obviously once a very affluent part of Scarborough, but as witnessed during our recent stay, ie an 8 hour police road blockage due to a man threatening to throw himself off a nearby roof, and further reports of raids by border police, it is now inhibited by a number of unsavoury characters who have brought this once lovely street to a place not suitable for holiday makers. I would point out that the whole area isn't like this, rather just clusters of it but because of what we witnessed, we will not be staying here again. This has no reflection on Cherry Trees at all but is merely an open an honest review.

Dear Mr Berry,
Thank you for your review. I appreciate your honesty.
In answer to your first comment about Cherry Trees itself, I do appreciate the fact that it is now in great need of re-decorating and that our "70's" decor has to be updated. We have bought this property five years ago and we have come a long way since. We are constantly trying to improve our flats and unfortunately bigger repairs, invisible to guests' eyes had to be done. I do everything myself and flat 4's decoration is my winter project this year.
Although I do understand your feeling to the "tired" feel of the building, regular guests to Cherry Trees have been able to see the changes through the years. "Rome hasn't been built in one day" as they say.... :-)
My biggest priority is to make every guest very welcome, comfortable in a spotless clean environment.
To answer your second comment about the area. It is very unfortunate what has happened. I am a committee member in our local community group and we are constantly working towards getting our neighbourhood together. This has been an isolated incident (the person wasn't even local). Although the area has had a low reputation 10 years ago, I can assure you that it is the first time I encounter such an incident which could have happened anywhere.
Whilst I understand your feeling and your stay was unfortunately tinted, I hope you will return to our fabulous town and I will be delighted to welcoming you again and very proud to show you our latest improvements!
All my kindest regards,
Una

This is our second visit to Cherry Trees. Una is wonderful, very helpful. The flat is very clean and full of everything you need. The location is good for the town and sea. Lots of restaurants and takeaways nearby. It is great as you can take your dog. I would highly recommend Cherry Trees.

Returned home today after a week's break to scarborough - same accommodation as last year - What can I say that hasn't already been said - absolutely perfect accommodation absolutely perfect price and absolutely perfect hosts - little William such a cutey too - only one negative 'we had to leave :(' - we have definitely found a place we will return to year after year as long as Una is still in control as she cares about her guests genuinely - look forward to returning in 2013 - many thanks for making a good holiday superb -:) :)

Just returned from our girls weekend break from March 30th - April 1st in Scaborough and I could not wait to log onto trip advisor to write this review...

If you are going to Scarborough and need a place to stay then without a doubt 100% go for Cherry trees holiday flats, it is the ONLY place to stay!

Una was so friendly and helpful and could not have done more for us. It was the small touches such as complimenory tea and coffe, even stocking up our fridge with milk that put a smile on our face. Una was kind, friendly and helpful!

Lovely and clean, we stayed in flat 4 which was cleaned to perfection. The beds were comfy and linen was fantastic!

A parking permit for the weekend was provided and the car did not move for the whole weekend due to the location being an ideal 5-10 minute walk for both the beach and the town centre.

The flats should be 5 stars and the owners should be so proud of their efforts.

I shall be returning later in the year this time with my boyfriend to show him the lovely sites of Scarborough, but also so that he can experience a holiday flat which is clean and tidy, with the freedom to come and go as we please!

FANTASTIC CHERRY TREES!! THANK YOU!

We are a retired couple who have over the years, stayed in many places world wide. Our recent ten day holiday at flat 2 Cherry Trees Flats, Scarborough rates the highest praise. Una welcomed us like long lost friends and was an absolutely charming young lady.
The hospitality tray with even fresh milk in the fridge was an added bonus as we we parched after our journey.
We would recommend Cherry Trees to anyone wanting the perfect holiday accommodation near the Scarborough sea shore and town centre alike.
Thank you so much Una.
Love, Dot and Lawrence

stayed at cherry trees 24th oct for 3 nights and really loved it.Una was really welcoming and friendly supplied us with fresh milk and a parking permit so no worries about the car just park up and forget about it as the town is only 5 mins walking distance so a perfect location.The flat had everything you could need for a self catering stay we were short of nothing . We stayed in flat 2 which had its own shower room, the rooms were clean and tidy i had no complaints at all i woul definetly recommend these flats and will be sure to return in the future.
