The flat was very close to all amenities, very handy to bus, train stations, shops and only two minutes walk from the harbour. We had a lovely holiday, the flat was furnished to a very high standard with everything matching, and was spotlessly clean. A lovely flat.

We have just returned from this lovely apartment after spending a very pleasant week there. we found it both welcoming and warm, good quality furniture and fittings, it was a pleasure coming back to after a day out. I really cant believe the last reviewers were at the same place!, yes! Whitby will always have a problem with parking, its because its so popular, and if these people had done their homework they would have known this is the case wherever you stay!! we will definitely return & recommend to friends.

The apartment is large and very well set out. It is very comfortable and a pleasure to get back to after a day out. It is also ideally situated near to all local amenities and car parking.

The apartment has a macerator waste system, that is not on the holiday details. We were not told until a couple of weeks before our holiday. The system is noisy and smelly! The only opening window in the apartment is in the kitchen. The road noise is clearly audible. The bed has a waterproof mattress protector that makes you really hot at night. The tenants in the flat above are up early and the floor is obviously wooden, so a lye-in is impossible.The biggest problem is parking, a good ten minutes up and down very steep hills, not for the faint hearted!
