“A warm and well equipped holiday home”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The house is very warm and comfortable, nicely decorated and you can walk down into Robin Hood's Bay. We were here in winter and the house was excellent. Would definitely go again.

“Perfect Location and Great House!”

Sterling House is the perfect choice for a family vacation. The location, at the top of Robin Hood's Bay, has wonderful views and is five minutes walk to the beach. The facilities are excellent, with lovely, comfy beds, covered in soft, good quality linens being a notable point. There were lots of towels and everything was very clean and well looked after. The kitchen was very nicely stocked with all you could need and the sofas were comfy and met our needs. It suited us to have the bedrooms on different floors as the older family member could retire to bed, without being disturbed. The garden was lovely, but I would suggest some garden furniture - although I suspect that this comes out during the warmer summer months.
Parking might be a problem during the busier months but as we walked everywhere, once we had a space it ceased to be an issue.
I would suggest that, for those rainy east coast days, more Sky channels might be useful and we took our PS3 - which was invaluable when the weather changed for the worse.
I paid locally for Bay WiFi (£5 for 3 days/£10 for full week) but was almost completely unable to get on to use it. I could, however, use my phone to get on the internet so use that instead!
All in all, we had a memorable time, have recommended the house to other family members and would definitely return.
It was fabulous to wake up in a cosy bed, in the eaves of the house, listening to seagulls and the sea. Just lovely.

As an addition - The Wayfarer bistro/restaurant is amazing!!! Reasonable prices for stunning food. Book a table as soon as you arrive.

“Great place and great location”
Reviewed July 22, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The place is great and the location great. Robin Hoods Bay is a fantastic location with lots to do for Adults and Children alike. The apartment is fantastic and well equipped. We had a problem with the fire alarm that was promptly delt with. Unfortunately the neighbors in the apartment bellow were noisy on a couple of nights and woke us up coming home, presumably from the pub, and arguing.
