“Shabby n chic-less”

I booked the coach house cottage on the strength of the other reviews, which give it 5 stars. I'm not sure how the other guests arrive at 5 stars, makes me wonder how other people live! The house is not at all comfortable in any way shape or form. The kitchen was functional, no microwave, although that was the least of our worries. The cleanliness of the coach house cottage leaves a lot to be desired. The kitchen sink taps stand on a plinth of wood, which looks like it's never been cleaned, God only knows what germs live there! The cleaners arrived on the morning we were leaving and said they would not stay there! If only we had known this beforehand. There is a comments book in the kitchen, with pages ripped out, the only comments in the book are really good ones, and there appears to be numerous comments in the same handwriting! I feel as though I have been duped into believing the coach house cottage is a family friendly retreat. In my initial enquiry about the coach house cottage,I detailed the age of my children, one age 2 years and one at 5 months. Firstly, the house is set back from the road and up a lot of steps,my husband and I had to carry both our children up. No way could we have got the pram or pushchair up to the house, unless we were willing to carry them! Hannah, the owner, didn't email me the information required until the day of our arrival at coach house cottage, and that was only after I rang her to find out about where to get the key from. There is no wifi at the coach house, and,in the information email, which I still have, guests are advised to piggy back off other wifi in robin hoods bay, namely the dolphin! I wonder if the dolphin are aware!!! The shower was dreadful, you can't stand up to shower and the hot water is unbearably hot, whilst the cold water shoots out with such force it nearly knocks you backwards! Overall a complete shambles, and at a cost of over £250 for two nights. Never again.

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Coach House Cottage. We are happy to come to an agreement re. a refund if you would like to contact me. But I assure you are our first bad review we have never falsified them. Most people find our cottage warm comfortable and family friendly. We have brought up 4 children ourselves from babies with Coach House Cottage as their holiday home. We don’t consider it difficult just perhaps different! But neither would we assume to bring a pram on a seaside, beach holiday. I do wonder if you were aware of the nature and age of the village and the cottages before you choose Robin Hoods Bay. It is the quaint nature of the place that brings most people here but also that nature that makes some mod cons eg. Wifi and walkin showers difficult to provide.

A beautiful cottage full of character and original features, where we really felt comfortable and at home. It was so good to stay in a cottage that is properly equipped as a functional place to live rather than one which has the bare essentials. We loved it.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Gorgeous rustic cottage with lovely fires and well equipped - everything we needed. Loved the roll top bath after our long days walking. Close to the beach and plenty of places to eat in Robin Hoods Bay. Having the parking close by was really wonderful too.. We would love to stay again some time. Lots of useful information provided and maps and details of walks in the cottage. This was home from home.
