Me and my family stayed at Filey the Bay, at 20 The Parade, at the beginning of October, for one week.
This has been our third visit to the Bay, we just love the whole set-up of this holiday village, it is so quiet and peaceful, and you have the beach directly in front of you.
The apartment 20 The Parade was spacious and comfortable, however, we were really disappointed when we noticed that
the cleaning had not been done to any possible standard (glass table disgustingly dirty, bathroom a disgrace, dark hair everywhere – we are all blonde…).
This was really bad. And to top it all, there was a note in the kitchen saying: Sparke and Shine have been here to clean your accommodation! They should better call themselves
Stainy and Tatty or something. This was a joke. Also, the windows had not been cleaned in ages, the bathroom needs some new paint, the sink is way too small,
and the bedroom carpets need to be removed, this is not for people with dust allergies or so.
It would be such a lovely apartment, but really needs some care. It is very rude of the owners to leave it in such a state, despite all the previous articles on trip advisor!
We won’t book this apartment again, we will go back to one of the houses we had previously, as this was in a better state.
Filey and the surroundings can be absolutely recommended for holidays, we also went to Scarborough, York, Sheffield, Hull and Whitby.
You do definitely need a car to get round!
20 The Parade is not to be recommended.
Great apartment. This is the 2nd time we have visited the GAP. Last year we stayed at Woodspring.
Fantastic site which has great facilities and easy access to the beach. Great for dog walks.
I have not given this a 5 star as there were a few issues namely done of the furniture. The dining chairs and sofa are so uncomfortable with a lack of filling.
The other issue was some of the bulbs had gone and no spares available.
Other than this a great stay.
Small warm flat with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Ideal base for touring the area and plenty to see.
The Bay is in a great location for exploring the East Coast. Close to Filey, Bridlington and Scarborough and smaller places like Sewerby the coast road makes it quick to get about. The Bay is a purpose built holiday resort and we stayed in a one bed apartment. The pub in the resort serves good food and has friendly atmosphere. Would definitely recommend The Bay as a great base.
Located well to Filey beach was a 15 minute walk from the apartment. Can walk all the way around to Filey brigg from the private beach in low tide. Facilities were great, everything we needed for a few days stay. Very clean, just needs a few links of paint here and there but well presented. Would definitely recommend and return if visiting Filey again.
