Location good for getting into Whitby and secure parking was an added advantage. Suggest however that you up-date your web site to let potential customers know that WiFi is now available. I e-mailed you before our visit and your answer was no WiFi at the property. However, according to the visitor comment book, it was installed recently, January I think? Sue Trevor Wright

The Moorings position, comfort and overall standard was excellent. The secure parking and views of the River Esk out of the windows was a true bonus.

We were very pleased with the apartment - lovely position and very nice inside. We shall certainly use Sykes Cottages again.

The complimentary wine and chocolates was a very lovely touch. The apartment was a good size and very clean. We chose the property based on the private parking, which we found very handy, and saved us having to find parking in Whitby centre, that I presume would have cost quite a bit for the four days. Overall a very nice stay and would consider coming again / recommend to a friend.

Great apartment within easy walking distance of Whitby, secure car parking was a bonus, as was the complimentary wine and chocolates (thanks very much) We have been to Whitby before and this is probably the best place we have stayed in. There are plenty of places to eat which cater for every taste, our favourite is the Cosa Nostra. There is great walking to be had from the doorstep including the Cleveland Way which you can do in sections and return by bus. I would definitely recommend this property.
