Spoilt by unnecessary faults

Lovely airy flat, comfortable bed, great location. Rather perturbed by comments in guest book about faulty fire alarm & shower which still had not been rectified, some guests making repairs to toilet during their stay. First time we used oven, fire alarm went off & neighbour banged on door wondering what we were doing to set it off. Subsequent use of oven involved leaving window wide open. Shower head had been reported faulty before but still not replaced so we bought our own to use. Told towels not included only to find them supplied. No instructions on how to switch on shower or gas fire. Hair dryer in our room heated up but fan had seized. Luckily one in other room worked. Little things that could easily be rectified add up to spoil your stay. Very disappointed as flat very comfortable otherwise. Booked with previous agency that property is no longer linked to.

Review from Sykes Cottages Web Site

The apartment was spacious and relaxing - with plenty of towels and extra bedding if required. Very close to the seafront and not too far from the harbour area. Contact with the owners was very friendly and they obviously have put a lot of hard work into the apartment - the décor is first class. Whitby is a fabulous place to visit with lots of cafes, pubs and places of interest. Whitby is also very, very dog friendly. Will definitely visit again.” Mrs Mcalroy, Wingate, September 2014

Lovely apartment a really comfortable stay

This is a lovely apartment, we stayed for a week my husband and our two grown up children. Plenty of space to relax and a short walk to the beach and town centre. The apartment has two good sized doubles and a small single room. The open plan lounge kitchen diner is a light comfortable room and great place to relax and watch the world go by. What would I add to this apartment, perhaps a dishwasher and more information about the apartment itself not just the appliances. But that does not distract from the lovely week we have had here in Whitby and I happily recommend this as a place to stay.

great family apartment

A well equipped and well furnished apartment for up to 5 people and dog. Pleasant area with bonus of parking permit for nearby carpark.Easy access to all areas of Whitby. Good value for price paid. We would look to return to this property

Lovely apartment - home form home.

We spent a gerat week in this lovely apartment with my husband and 2 young children. The apartment is spacious ( with a good amount of storage space) with great facilities. DVD.s and games made the children feel at home, and the beds were very comfy. Lovely bathroom with roll top bath and seperate shower. This apartment is really central - just a couple of minutes from the cliff lift ( we hired a beach hut which I'd recommend doing if you intend to spend time down at the beach), and within very easy reach of town. It has great views ( the sea from the bay windows in the lounge and a bedroom, and of the abbey ruins from the kitchen), and was lovely and quiet. It comes with a parking permit for the West Cliff car park which is just a stones throw away. It has pacious bedrooms and open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. A great place to come

this appartment is brilliant, me and my little family (partner and daughter) and my sisters family (sister partner and two daughters). all fitted perfect into this flat with room to spare the kids thought it was fantastic, and the flat is now know as the holiday house. we have booked to come again this year. the walk to the local shops and beach is just minuets away. and there is a bus stop just at the end of the road, for the tour bus perfect place for the perfect hoilday :)
