“Comfortable house but showers are very poor”
Reviewed May 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

Stayed in the Post House over a long weekend and found the house comfortable, although it could do with updating and a good spring clean. We were a party of 4 so there was plenty of space and the house is in a good location to explore the surrounding areas. The biggest problem we had was the extremely poor showering facilities. Although the two bathrooms are modern, the showers are electric for some unknown reason. On arrival, we found that one of the showers stayed cold and although we contacted our host by telephone, we didn't receive a call back so we had to call again and were told there must be an airlock and she'd have to sort it once we were gone. The water pressure is so low that it took ages for us to shower as it took such a long time to rinse off soap! The slightest adjustment to the controls led to the shower being either too hot or freezing cold. I don't know how many hours it would take for 8 people to shower! Bearing in mind the cost of staying here, perhaps the owners should invest in a water pump or better plumbing to improve this most important necessity. Also, make sure you take all the most basic provisions with you as all that was in the cupboard was some salt, although there was a welcome pack of milk, biscuits and fruit bread. It made us feel a little disappointed that we weren't greeted by the host herself. It would have been nice to have been shown the house properly rather than by the shop assistant from the owner's shop next door who gave us a very quick run through. It didn't make us feel that welcome.

Stayed here for a week October half term. House is lovely, comfortable and very spacious. Great location and parking on site is a bonus in the bay. The only thing that let it down slightly was the showers in the otherwise beautiful bathrooms, very low water pressure.
Robin Hoods Bay is beautiful and we had amazing weather.

“Lovely, comfortable house, great location”

We really enjoyed our stay at The Post House. Great location at the top of the bay, next door to the Post Office/store, near the park and restaurants and with parking for 3 cars right outside the front door. The walk down the hill to the beach is no more than 10-15 mins (steep on the way back, but manageable with buggies / toddlers). The Post House is well equipped, comfortable and spacious. 4 good sized bedrooms, a large kitchen/diner and 2 very nice lounges (1 especially large), with all modern requirements. There were 6 adults & 3 children in our party and we had plenty of space for all. Highly recommended.

The Post House was an excellent base for our stay in Robin Hoods Bay. It had everything we needed including lots of space. The location could not have been bettered being right at the top of the old village and opposite the bus stops for Whitby.

“Great Location, and spacious , comfortable accommodation”

We stayed for a long weekend at the Post House , we were made to feel very welcome and the house was clean and very well equipped . All of the bedrooms were very comfortable and there was plenty of room for 8/9 people , the upstairs room was especially large and could seat us all easily, with a lovely view of the coast.
It was handy having the parking spaces as it tends to be a bit of a premium at Robin Hoods Bay, a beautiful place and well worth a visit.

“A great house for a larger group”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in The Post House with another family - 4 adults and 2 children in total. The house offers ample accommodation and amenities to suit such a group. In fact 2 more persons could be easily fitted in. We happenned to get great weather but there is plenty of entertainment provided for rainy days - board games, Wii, DVDs, CDs with music, etc. The kitchen/diner is lovely and very well equipped should you wish to cook. And if you run out of something, the owners' shop and post office is adjacent to the house. The house used to be a family home and this really makes a difference. We just wish we could stay longer.
The beach is a short walk away, as is a playground, restaurants and pubs.
The owner made us feel very welcome, answered all our questions and provided travel cot and secure stair gate we asked for. Great communication.
Make sure you read the house rules book provided, lots of useful info, and enjoy your stay!
