Property Details

The Space
Host & Stay are committed to our owners that their homes are protected during guest bookings. For this reason, we require all our guests to transfer a Damage Deposit (refundable, subject to an administration charge) or, to purchase an Accidental Damage Waiver which will cover you for up to £500.00 of accidental damage during your stay.

Neighborhood
If you’re a cricket fan, this is the ideal location, North Marine House overlooks Scarborough cricket club, Yorkshire's first class cricket ground. Located is just a short walk to all of the popular attractions. Packed with seaside charm, you’ll find plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes to discover as well as arcades and ice cream parlours.

There are a number of beaches for you to choose from. The popular South Bay is a sun trap and close to the hustle and bustle of the town centre. North Bay has been accredited with Blue Flag status meaning it’s one of the best beaches in Europe! Cayton Bay is the quietest of the three and boasts a sweeping bay with a rural feel. Lastly Cornelian Bay is the remotest and hardest to get to but it’s a hidden gem and often empty.

Ideal for all weathers, there are lots of indoor attractions in Scarborough for the whole family. Head to Sea Life Sanctuary to see seals, penguins, sharks, turtles and more or Scarborough Castle to explore its 3000 year history. If it’s outdoor fun you’re looking for, The Open Air Theatre is a short 20 minute walk from North Marine House, where you can see amazing bands, singers and comedians. There is also the Sky Trail Adventure, Peasholm Park and a great water park, suitable for all ages a few minutes’ drive away.

Getting Around
North Marine House is within walking distance of all that Scarborough has to offer and within 1 hours’ drive time of Staithes, Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Filey.

Scarborough Train Station is a short 10 minute walk away and has routes to Filey, Bridlington, Liverpool and Sheffield.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Scarborough. Hop on the 12 route and you can visit neighbouring seaside spots of Filey and Bridlington. The X93 travels through to Middlesbrough with drop offs in Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby.

Nice layout, good facilities,clean and comfy<br/><br/>Could do with swapping sofa for a bed settee to maximise space and capacity

Jayne

The property was close to all the amenities at the north bay side of Scarborough and the cricket ground is just behind. <br/>The property was well furnished and had good self catering facilities.<br/><br/>The bathroom was a wet room, the whole floor got wet when using the shower so tge sink and toilet area were soaked. The bed could have been a bit bigger, the screen and metal shelves on the wall were unnecessary, just in the way. <br/>The front of the property needs a tidy and sweep, first impressions count.

The property was not of a high standard we had a person called Andrew clean the property we had left the first day as the blinds in the living room behind them there was mould all over the window sills I have a current chest infection and this property made my breathing 10xs worse I couldn’t get any photos because I had to travel 206 miles back to Cambridge

The location was perfect for us.<br/><br/>Firstly, we had to pay a damage fee of £25 before we got the key pad details. This charge should have been included in the booking price, or stated before we booked.<br/><br/>Apartments should have discs or permits for parking outside.<br/><br/>On entrance, the lobby had not been hoovered or cleaned, muddy marks all over the floor. <br/><br/>When entering our apartment, it was freezing cold and first impressions were not great. Could have been a lot cleaner, the floor hadn’t been hoovered, as there was hair and food on the floor. The apartment looked like it hadn’t been dusted in a long time, mirrors were not cleaned, stains on sofa, walls and carpets. Bathroom definitely needed a deep clean. Mould around shower and what looked like toothpaste in the sink.<br/><br/>On first glance we were happy with the facilities, however when we went to use the cups, glasses and cutlery we realised that they were not clean. Not to mention that we only had one fork. <br/><br/>The bed was possibly the worst bed I have ever slept in. Did not get a good nights rest during our 3 nights at all. The noise in the apartment did not help that, you can hear everything around and above you. <br/><br/>When leaving the apartment for an evening meal, we noticed that the door of the lobby had been left wide open, this is concerning! <br/><br/>I am not normally one to leave a bad review, however I have recognised that other reviews for this apartment are very similar, and also share the same downfalls. The response from the company has often been “we have addressed these issues”. However you are not addressing these issues, when couples are constantly complaining about the same things! We would have chosen somewhere else to stay if we took into consideration the previous reviews! <br/><br/>Nicer places to stay for your money!

The location was ideal and the apartment was nice and homely, it had everything you needed just like at home.<br/><br/>There was an awful feisty smell in the shower room that was overpowering, we were only given one toilet roll for a week, the noise in the bedroom from the rain spilling out of the gutter and onto the window ledge was deafening.

10 minute walk to the front<br/><br/>I booked on booking.com, never known anything like it! On the day I was waiting to get into the property at 4.30pm, rang the host to be told I needed to pay a £250 damage deposit before I could be given the keys! (Never had that on booking.com before)<br/>I wasn't happy about this because we are reliable, clean and sensible and let's be honest, it's a small room in Scarbourough! Hardly the Ritz lol. We paid £177 for 2 nights, about average I would say in the area (actually, on the higher side on that street to be fair)<br/>I paid the damage deposit on my credit card bit was nattering then because on entering there was damage to the room which I was anxious may be blamed on us. I took photos which I will attach to review if I can, in a nutshell - damp in the entrance, hole in the wall, wear and tear damage to the walls and shower etc. It's a cream carpet so obviously it was marked, it was also lifted near the shower room.<br/>Sent the pics straight through and was responded to stating they would review the damage after the stay and decide whether to keep the deposit.......how antagonising and frustrating!!! Ruined my weekend to be honest!<br/>Fast forward to the deposit being refunded...checked my account to see only £240 had been sent back, contacted them and explained and asked for the missing £10 to be refunded ASAP. I will attach the reply if I can which was that it is an admistration charge! ....what in the name of Scarborough is going on here?!<br/>As someone who is well travelled, I have been all over the world in some of the best hotels, I have NEVER been charged a £250 deposit (unless it has been a group) and a £10 admin charge. Good old Charles (I think that's his name- the owner) send me some condescending message stating that it's in the small print that they keep a £10 admin fee. Moral of the story - book in somewhere nicer for the same price without all the nonsense of the £250 deposit and 'small print' admin fee.

Shower enclosure was absolutely filthy, only 1 fork in the cutlery drawer, Kettle was full of limescale, extraction fan filthy and not working, lounge area lights and dining area light not working, window cracked from top to bottom and patched up with Duct Tape, damaged roof tiles causing banging noise in the wind all night,

The apartment was very nice.<br/><br/>Some cooking equipment wasn't clean. <br/>The shower had a button you needed to turn on in the main room but it wasn't labelled so took a while to find.<br/>Upstairs were noisy and rang my apartment phone numerous times at night on the Monday. They also left the front door open. As a solo traveller I was worried about security and they made me feel unsafe. Barricaded my door with a chair.

PRO'S<br/>On arrival I retrieved the keys from the key safe outside the front door and entered. Bowler’s retreat is on the ground floor (despite all the negative feedback, reporting there are a lot of stairs, there are not.<br/>First impressions do matter and this apartment gives a very good one. It is roomy, very clean and tidy, the overall décor is done to a high standard. The main room consists of the living area, bed space and kitchen area.<br/>Main Room: There is one working electric wall heater which adequately keeps the room at a good temperature, we set it to 22 degrees and never had to adjust it at all. the second heater under the window appears to be not working at all. All the furniture is also in good clean condition and the double bed and the couch were comfy enough for us. There is a large flat screen smart TV connected to the broadband. The broadband is not great, it fluctuated between 3mbps and 12mbps, OK, for your phone or laptop email etc, but not always good enough to stream TV & movies, without long buffering breaks. This room also has a balcony with a great private view over the Scarborough Cricket ground if you were planning to stay during the cricket season. One more excellent addition is that there are plenty of plug sockets to handle all your devices you need.<br/>Kitchen Area: Again, this is laid out to a high standard and is well equipped with a full-size Cooker & Hob, Microwave, Toaster and Kettle. The is also a Washing Machine & Dishwasher, if you do use these appliances, you will need your own cleaning tablets or liquid. Adequate utensils, pots and pans.<br/>Shower Room: This is a very nice wet room type layout fully tiled with an Electric Shower, Toilet, Wash Basin and Radiator. As with the main room we left this on constant and were never chilly. Totally adequate for regular daily washing & showering.<br/>Entrance Hall: This is a nice surprise.<br/><br/>CON’s: I paid the full price for the apartment on booking, Then 10 days before our arrival I received and email stating I need to click the company link and pay £250 for a refundable Damage Waiver. There is also a £10 admin charge, which is not refundable, when you do this. This was not stated or included in the advertised price on Booking.com. It says following their inspection after checkout if there are no issues the deposit will be refunded. One week after checkout I had to contact H&S to ask why I had not received my deposit back, I got an email the very next day with the refund info.<br/><br/>H&S: If you are going to add addition charges like this, either add them to your rental charge, or at least state them separately at the point of booking, so we know how much we are paying for the apartment.<br/><br/>While I know Scarborough very well, I was disappointed that H&S do not offer Scratch Card parking permits for road outside this property. Without a card you can only park for 2 hours with a time disc, which I had, but you will need to use the local carpark if you do not have one. Parking disks are available free from some shops & garages. The parking sign on the road states: Area G2, Mon – Sat 9am – 5pm & Sun 12 noon – 5pm 2 Hours. No Return Within 1 Hour.<br/><br/>H&S: May I suggest, you have some free parking discs available in the lobby for all drivers, and also offer scratch cards which can be charged for at booking and left in each apartment for the duration of each visit. We have stayed in two other apartments on this road, and they both do this for their guests.<br/><br/>There is a large shrub outside the Shower room, which because of the heavy wind during our stay kept banging very loudly on the window, all night.<br/><br/>H&S: May I suggest, this be pruned or removed<br/><br/>The broadband is quite slow and not really sufficient to stream TV<br/><br/>H&S: May I suggest an upgrade.<br/><br/>Overall Summary: 7 out of 10<br/>Very happy with the quality and cleanliness.

Nice apartment, modern and only a short walk to all the places I needed to go to.<br/><br/>Cleanliness wasn’t that good, bits on the carpet, can tell it hasn’t been hoovered. Dust in some places and hair on the sofa, shower and carpet. Only the cleanliness that was a let down, shame as the apartment was really nice. I reported this to host and stay who said they will get the cleaner to come out, day later still no cleaner so contacted them again and the person I spoke to said they will get someone to come out, by this time it was dark and getting late. I had to go out and buy some cleaning stuff and also paid 30 for a cheap portable hoover as we were staying in the apartment for 5 nights. Really let down by host and stay as we are returning customers and we do recommend host and stay to family and friends.

Lovely apartment, good location, would definitely stay again. <br/>Only issue was oven didn’t work until last full day which meant we had to eat out most of the holiday. Communication was good but took a few days to resolve problem.

Loved the theme and layout, comfy and well presented.<br/><br/>The wood structure that divides the bed from the rest of the living space. Would be better if there was netting there instead of that wood so can be open and closed. Would be able to watch tv while in bed. Also bed could be bigger.

Nice looking place<br/><br/>You are expected to pay a none refundable admit fee for your deposit, claiming back view courts

Andrea

03/12/2023

It was a lovely and spacious apartment.<br/><br/>It took about half an hour and two phone calls to get the code for the key lock so we had to sit in the car and wait outside in the cold and dark evening, which was very unpleasant. The heating was turned off when we arrived and it took hours to warm up, especially in the front room, so the first evening was very cold. The apartment was not soundproof at all, so the noise from the couple upstairs was very intrusive.

Gary

Nice stylish apartment close to town centre very clean on arrival.<br/><br/>Lots of stairs up a narrow staircase. High level windows in attic room so could only see out when standing. No parking pass / permit as other venues have so had to pay extra or move the car daily.

The location was good and the apartment was very well furnished. A very quiet apartment on our first night.<br/><br/>Loads of stairs to climb that were not mentioned. The kitchen was well furnished but had very few utensils for cooking and no instructions were included. Seems mainly suited for takeaways. The dog running around constantly in the attic apartment above meant we had disturbed evenings.

Bedroom. Location.<br/><br/>Very uncomfortable settee. Shower room stunk of drains, sealant filthy, shower was Luke warm( needs new). Extraction fans dirty. Bits of old food in sink and fridge. Communal area dirty. Communal bin directly outside property on main road, the only property to do this( not a good impression)paying for parking(rip off)

Julian

Very well-presented; tasteful decor; good facilities; <br/> <br/>Superb view of the cricket ground and across the town to Oliver's Mount (downside for the less able — up several flights of steep stairs).<br/><br/>Whizzy-looking app with apartment info didn't in fact contain much useful info (in particular no guide to using the unfamiliar cordless blinds; only worked this out by accident) — and would be inaccessible for the non computer savvy. <br/> <br/>Being asked, late in the day, for a £250 deposit was a bit of a shock (but perhaps my fault for not reading the property details sufficiently closely). Being charged £10 to pay the deposit was also an unwelcome surprise

Robert

25/09/2023

The apartment is nicely decorated<br/><br/>One set of towels each for four days is not good enough. Nor is two teabags. The bed is too soft and the couch is too hard - need to step up your game to match other providers. The additional insurance charge or deposit detract from the overall experience.

Booking process was straightforward, transparent and easy. Information relating to check in, property facitlities, check out and 'local things to do' was useful and easy to read. Property itself was clean and tidy, with an amazing view over the cricket ground and close to all amenities but in a quiet area. <br/> <br/>If you want to go out to breakfast at the North Bay beach, a quick 7 minutes walk down the cliff path via the pedestrian cut through aloingside no. 105, go to the Watermak or (££) the Oasis (£) cafes. <br/> <br/>Perfect stay!<br/><br/>The hosts need to consider adding a backsplash to the back of the hob area as previous guests have obvioulsy been cooking and there are grease splash stains on the wall.

The kitchen was well arranged, with lots of useful appliances and the lounge area was comfortable.<br/><br/>The bed wasn’t as big as advertised, and certainly not comfortable. Additionally - the internet was poor / intermittent. Not ideal for a bit of work I needed to do. When we first arrived the cables had been ripped out of the router. Parking was expensive too.

Clean, lovely and comfortable. Good location for north bay, Peason park, mini railway and Sea life. 10 minutes to main shops. 15 minute walk to sea life. <br/>Smart modern apartment. Plenty of car parks near by. Would stay again if Wifi connection improved, otherwise would score a 9<br/><br/>We chose secure parking which was pre booked lets just say not straight forward. We were on third floor so not good for older people. Some sound transfer from flat above but not enough to be a issue. Busy road. Very quiet where we slept. <br/>Wifi did not work whilst we were there.

Good facilities and decent location<br/><br/>Not clean, crumbs in the cutlery drawer, dirty cutlery, stains all over the rug (wouldn’t cost much to replace??), stains on bed linen, bathroom smelt of drains, mug rings left on table. Batteries for the remote control died and took over 24 hours for replacement batteries to come, couldn’t login to Netflix or other services due to not having an Amazon account.

The location was perfect as we were attending the open air theatre. We also enjoyed walking along the sea front and sampled lovely places to eat. The accommodation was clean, fresh and bright and had everything we wanted and more.<br/><br/>Can’t think of anything apart from lack of hanging space which wasn’t a problem for us.

Linda

06/07/2023

Nice apartment, wouldn't really call it luxurious but it was comfortable and they'd even left us some coffee pods. It's situated in a good location for access to the town centre and promenade if you don't mind walking. Good view of the cricket ground!<br/><br/>Climbing up the 50 steps to the apartment was a killer, we had to call the company as the mains switch for the shower would not turn off and was really hot, they said they would come when we were out, I don't think they came as we still couldn't turn it off later that day and it was the same all week, sometimes the switch light went out and the shower would not work. There is no wardrobe to hang clothes and the drawers are extremely small, some of the walls are bare brick and you get brick dust coming off them onto the pillows. Street parking is very limited and you need to get a disc from local shops/pubs, I had to keep paying for an NCP car park around the corner - some of the accommodation providers get parking permits for their guests but not this one!

Great location for our trip to the open air arena.<br/>Flat has been renovated to a good standard with quality fittings and furniture.<br/>Well equipt kitchen area and lovely comfy bed.<br/><br/>Flat could do with some upkeep:-<br/>Shower pole not secure to wall.<br/>Carpets could do with a clean.<br/>Back door step is loose.<br/>Kitchen drain smells terrible (bleach handily provided).<br/>Marks on walls could be cleaned off.

Location, great for attending events at the Open air theatre<br/><br/>Hassle with check-in due to additional insurance fee and poor administration processes with Host & Stay.

Excellent location, lovely 10 minute walk to both beaches. The apartment was nice and tidy, and the bed was very comfortable. A good base camp for exploring.<br/><br/>We couldn't figure out how to use the oven, and the wifi was unreliable. However, this did not affect our holiday in any way, and we were sure we could have just messaged the host to sort it.

It was in a good location not too far from everything you need.<br/><br/>There wasn't a lot of storage in the bedroom, there were only 2 clothes hangers and 2 small drawers. You also had to buy your own household things such as hand soap and washing powder.

nice cozy place, perfect location. towels and bedding were lovely and soft.<br/><br/>only one fork between two of us, dust everywhere, bathroom window didn’t have a blind and it was right next to the shower - neighbours could see us so we felt super exposed and uncomfortable. <br/>Outside balcony was cute, but chairs covered in dirt - not cleaned for a while, and cigarette butts everywhere.

I loved my stay in this flat. despite being on a relatively main road, it was incredibly quiet, felt really private, and peaceful. all the amenities you'd want. A great space with tasteful decoration. Felt right at home immediately. Within walking distance of shops and most importantly, a beautiful beach! Host and stay provide really helpful instructions to make your stay stress-free.

The property was spacious and it was situated in a good location, close to the beach, close to Peasholm Park and close to the main area for the attractions.<br/><br/>When we first arrived at the property it hadn’t been cleaned. I called the main office and they did sort it out very quickly however it did mean that we were not able to get into the property properly until 5:30, an hour and a half after original check in which is already late at 4pm, so this did ruin the start of the holiday. I will say though that the staff did sort the issue out for us and refunded us £30. It was unfortunate that we still had to check out early at 10 despite not being able to get in till 5:30. There was also a lot of noise from the other apartments, there was a dog barking very early in the morning and doors slamming, I understand this is not the owners fault however the walls are very thin so this is something to consider when booking here as you will not be able to have a lie in, we were woken at 7 everyday! Generally the stay was lovely, the apartment was in a nice location and it was nice having our own space in a modern place.

Decent property to stay in , reasonably clean and good location. Modern apartment and newish kitchen which had everything you could wish for. i would stop here again while not the best ive stoped in its up there with the best. nice and warm electric radiators. recommended.<br/><br/>Parking was a issue for me personally.....most places do the scratch card system in scarborough which was not implemented here.....however a kind lady from the guest house next door gave us a parking disc. there are car parks close by at bottom of hill which i left my car in for one night. free parking till march then........ 9 pounds for 24hrs.

Die Lage ist gut, ca 7min zu Fuss zur Innenstatt. Es ist auch ruhig dort. Die Aussicht aufs Stadium fanden wir gut.<br/><br/>Leider war das Bett nur 130cm breit also wirklich zu schmal für 2 Personen. Es ist ein grosses 1 Personen Bett. Die Wohnungs Fläche ist ca 45m2 und nicht 90m2. Das Schlafzimmer ist nicht getrennt vom Wohnzimmer.

The view was great from the bedroom. Nice and quiet at the back over the cricket ground. The bed was very comfortable and very big. The whole flat was very comfortable. Two massive t.v's, lovely big shower. The kitchen was very good; not that I did any cooking, but looked lovely, all the mod cons built in. All round excellent.<br/><br/>We had a couple above us for 3 nights who had the TV on really loud very early. Not the hosts fault though so not a complaint on them The entry, stairs are nice; good lighting, nice sturdy doors, but would suggest that they change the carpet colour to something that doesn't show all the dirt, which it does. Not everyone wipes there feet

Location was great (a short walk from town or peasom Park the other way). Room was clean and recently refurbished with nice modern kitchen. <br/><br/>Shower was well done.<br/><br/>Parking wasn't ideal. Other guesthouses on road have parking permits for guests but had to park in pay and display at end of street (5 min walk) which wasn't ideal having to go back and top up as it only offered 6 hours stay at time to pay. <br/><br/>Although all the pictures look nice you only get one apartment so it's luck of the draw to which you get. We had ground floor room which was good for access but had noise of other guests and passing pedestrians.

Adrian

10/09/2022

Almost everything ?<br/><br/>Very noisy. Sound proofing needs alot if concideration. Especially ground floor apartment next to stairs and front door. You may want to consider double glazing in the lounge area too. <br/> Found shower a little slippy when wet.<br/>Bed squeeky and mattress a bit soft for us.

The location was reasonably close to buses and attractions at North Shore.<br/><br/>The outside of the property was untidy. Lot's of weeds and rubbish which gave me serious misgivings as did the muddy carpet in the entrance hall. It was a pleasant surprise therefore to find the apartment, which was ground floor and at the back of the property, was clean and had everything one could need. The shower was excellent. It overlooks the cricket ground which is a bonus if there is a match on and you like cricket. There was also a free parking disc which was very useful.

Quiet location, but central to main facilities. Adequate space for our needs. Well equipped. Loved the little balcony overlooking the cricket ground. We'd love to stay again.<br/><br/>We couldn't work the shower as we were not made aware of master switch in lounge area. The Host & Stay staff (David I think) was very helpful during our two or three phone calls and wasn't aware either of the master switch. Easily remedied by labelling up or including in property pack.

The apartment was well equipped, modern and clean<br/><br/>we were notified to park in a local council car park as the street parking was limited,but not told there was a parking permit in the property. We finally found a 24hr NCP car park and walked for 25 mins to the property with a heavy suitcase and 4 bags, so not a good start. We were also kept awake half the night with a loud buzzing noise and finally it was coming from the fridge which we had no way of stopping. Unfortunately these things ruined it for us and we left a day early.

We love visiting Scarborough, we love both North and South Bay so the location of the property was excellent. 10 min either way. The property is clean and modern with all the home comforts necessary for a few nights or even longer. The coffee machine and milk in the fridge was a great touch. Thank you! There are couple of convenience stores within a couple of minutes walk too.<br/><br/>Didn't have any problems with the apartment. If I had to pick something I noticed on the last day the mattress was upside down so had not had the pillow top but hadn't really found the bed to too uncomfortable. Parking is approx a 6 min walk away and reasonable. I'd recommend unpacking outside the apartment then taking your car up to the Castle Rd or one of the other recommend carparks.

The view of the cricket ground was amazing and the location was excellent for Scarborough Open Air Theatre. The apartment was beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. The tiles in the shower room and toilet were lovely. The pre-visit correspondence was impeccable and the best we have encountered. The hosts have thought of almost everything that you could need during a visit, including an iron and hairdryer in the bedroom. We really enjoyed our stay at Umpires Watch and would definately recommend it.<br/><br/>The paint work in a couple of areas needed addressing - looking tired/scuffed. The towel rail in the toilet had been pulled off the wall and bodged back into place. We only had one glass that wasn't a wine glass. The exposed brick work in the kitchen looks lovely but didn't feel hygienic behind the oven and sink. The alternate tap fixing cap was missing from the sink in the kitchen. A shower gel dispenser in the shower room would have been appreciated. Also, an extra tea-towel and an oven glove would be nice.

Definitely exceeded expectations, very nice studio apartment. Modern decor and double ?lazing can sometimes be a rarity in Scarborough. Very clean and perfect view for the cricket.<br/><br/>Not sure if we missed them, but couldn't find any dishwasher tablets and was no washing up liquid. Also the online manuals didnt work when I clicked on the links. The blinds which were v modern, looked great but we couldnt get them close effectively, so quite a lot of light coming in during the night.

And as we arrived I had to ring to get instructions on the key access this had not been sent. These are only minor middles as the place it's self was great.

Tried to email saying this but got no response so putting it here. <br/> <br/>We have recently just returned from our 4 night stay at the Anchor apartment in Scarborough from the 20th April until the 24th April 2022. Unfortunately it wasn't the best experience we have had, this was due to the electric going off on the first morning we were there (the Thursday 21st ). This issue wasn't resolved until tea time that day. Unbelievably, we woke up to the same issue on day four which was the Saturday. However this time it couldn't be resolved and we had to move to another apartment across the town. As you can imagine, it had a massive impact on how we could enjoy our holiday. <br/> <br/>Although the apartment that we moved to was nice, when we have had a look at the site not only was it cheaper than the one we originally booked it was also quite a distance from where we had paid to park our car. Everyone I spoke to at Host and Stay were lovely but it was so stressfull that I had to call in the first place as I am quite an anxious person. All of these factors resulted in the holiday not being as relaxing as we had hoped.

June

Lovely bright room, clean and tidy. Very nice view of the cricket grounds to the rear. The room was well furnished and equipped.<br/><br/>The description of renting 'the entire apartment' was misleading as it is actually a Studio. There was a partition between the bed and the living area/kitchenette, although it is flimsy and allows light through. Would be much improved with a substantial partition.

Decor and general vibe of the apartment was great. Apartment was clean and well-presented. The guide book was comprehensive. The interior is up to date and has obviously been influenced by someone with a keen eye for interior design. Overall it had a very metropolitan London sort of style which was wuite interesting for Scarborough!<br/><br/>No view for the particular apartment we stayed in which was not obvious from the pics as the pics on the Booking were was all of the apartments together. Can't really be helped though due to building design.<br/><br/>Couple of minor maintenance items:<br/><br/>1: The bed frame bolts need tightening as the frame itself is loose. I tightened them hand-tight but they will come lose again. Just needs someone with an alan key. <br/><br/>2: Door handle rose in bathroom is loose. Just needs tightening with an alan key.<br/><br/>Comfort:<br/>1: Sofa is obviously more leaning towards style rather than comfort. It did the job though, so all good.

Good Central location, plenty of car parks nearby (the NCP is £6 for 24 hours) and a two minute walk to North Bay.<br><br>Highly recommended.

Easy check in check out instructions. Good location, good facilities in apartment.<br/><br/>No parking / scratchcard parking, had to pay at local.

the general property was very nice.<br/><br/>the sink in the kitchen area has a really bad smell coming from the drain. the shower has bad pressure and the blind in the living area would not fully close so was letting light in.

We liked the idea of utilising an apartment. The washing machine was a plus, as was the dishwasher.<br/><br/>The photos on the website suggested a view of the cricket ground to the rear. In fact the view turned out to be a very small courtyard and an annexe to the building - no view of the cricket ground.<br/>The site said the property didn't accept pets which was a plus. However, someone upstairs had a dog which we heard running around due to hard floors above, and there were muddy paw prints on the carpets outside our apartment. Also, it was not pleasant to be sitting in the apartment, which was located on the ground floor, to look out of the front window to see a large dog emptying itself in the front garden in front of our window.<br/>The place had repair issues, as there were cracks running down the walls, the worktop wasn't sealed properly and there was a good gap between it and the wall, there are no splashbacks behind the hob or sink and these were stained badly. There was some damp in the kitchen. The door furniture was loose and some of it hanging off, such as the scutcheon in the bathroom. The shower drain lacked a cover so we would need to stand on an open drain, and the drain itself was filthy.<br/>The walls in the bathroom, although tiled nicely, were filthy and had residue of grout.<br/>The walls were dirty around the sink. The hand towel rail was loose and hanging off.<br/>The front room window evidently hadn't been cleaned for a long time and there were cobwebs and dead spiders on the sash.<br/>The louvre blinds were missing pully-knobs and missing cover slips at the top, one of which was found propped up in the bedroom. The hall way also contained cobwebs at eye level, so clearly this area hadn't been cleaned.<br/>Although 2 remote controls were provided for tvs in the front room and bedroom, one of them did not work, so we had to keep taking the remotes from room to room. The bedroom contained no storage for clothing and although there was a hanging rail, it contained only 3 hangers, which was insufficent for two people for a week's clothing.

excellently furnished and clean. spacious open plan feel that was a great home away from home<br/><br/>Host and stay need to be more effective at dealing with potential emergency issues. our building fire alarm was triggered by another guest during our stay ( never even came out their room !?). this resulted in a deafening sound throughout all areas of the property. After exiting the building, calls were made to host and stay to advise of the issue. I noted a lack of urgency for 1. a fire alarm going off at a property and any instruction 2. a lack of action to send a maintenance person to fix the main alarm box. <br/><br/>After 30 minutes with 4 guests outside the property, the alarm was eventually reset by a guest at the main box. <br/><br/>no engineer had attended site to correct the central alarm box whilst we stayed for the next three days after the event.

It was close to the beach,park and.shops. The property was very clean and comfortable.<br/><br/>Although the shower room had frosted glass. We felt that a blind would add to the privacy of the room.

Excellent location in Scarborough. Newly renovated apartment overlooking the cricket ground. Excellent kitchen facilities for a holiday let, including washing machine & dishwasher which were a bonus.<br/><br/>Reported broken toilet seat found on our arrival as did not want to incur any charges for damage that was done prior to our visit. Still not repaired when we left. Noise from other apartments quite loud at times...... especially at 4am when the people in the apartment above us were getting up, could hear every move, it sounded like a heard of elephants above us!

The private decking, the place was lovely spacious and really well thought out lovely decor throughout loved the place<br/><br/>There is nothing really I can say that I disliked about the property I found it a little annoying that the netflix wouldn't connect and a few more instructions on how to use the oven but other than that nothing to complain about ?

It was a great property that had just about everything you required for a short break. Bed was very comfortable.<br/><br/>Be careful in choosing your apartment at this venue as we were three flights of steep stairs up. Nice views over cricket ground but windows would have benefitted from a clean. Also, no hanging space other than on back of bathroom door. <br/>Sofa was very hard. Dusty blinds and dusty skirtings in bathroom.

James

The property was very spacious, clean, equipped with all essentials needed. It was also in a good location, not much of a walk to anything that you wanted to see in Scarborough. Would highly recommend and would definitely visit again.<br/><br/>Nothing.

Not too far from city centre, spacious and modern flat, had everything you would need for a weekend away<br/><br/>The walls have to be really thin as you can hear even neighbor snoring at night but it doesn’t bother much, the biggest surprise was a fact that you have to dispose of all waste from internal to external bins, been in a lot of places but never in my life had to do it before

Lovely, clean bedsit style top of the house in new conversion. Decent size kitchen. Few minutes walk from North Bay for a morning dip.<br/><br/>I hadn't clicked that it overlooked (directly) 'Scarborough Cricket ground' and we should have had two days of a test match. (Somerset lost early?). My husband didn't like that. ? I didn't care...

Was clean, spacious with lovely view front and back, lights are amazing and heating works and warms up quickly. Bed really comfortable marked down due to WiFi and a few little issues.<br/><br/>WiFi did not work at all! Called and advised no fibre optics in apartment! Mouldy cup in dishwasher and towel rail in toilet coming off the wall. Sofa bed in living room sticks out at the back so bruised our legs walking around in the living room/kitchen. As we had no WiFi the tv does not connect to anything including iPlayer and Netflix.

Great location. Very well equipped and stylish apartment. We stayed in the bowlers retreat which had an unexpected bonus of a little outdoor terrace looking on to the cricket grounds. Central only a ten to fifteen min walk to all main attractions.<br/><br/>The wifi didn’t work and a parking permit would have made life much easier.

Absolutely beautiful little apartment. It is ground floor and has the best view onto the cricket ground, which is beautiful when the sun sets! It is so close to both North and South bay, with a 10 minute walk to both. We parked in the station car park as it was cheaper than other local car parks but we used the free zone discs to park up and unload/load our stuff. Milk was provided which was a lovely touch. The bed was extremely comfy too. Because there was no WiFi, it really allowed me and my partner to spend some time properly connecting. We loved our stay, thank you.

Future guests need to be aware that this apartment<br/>- does not have any WIFI<br/>- has almost no storage space<br/>- has a wet bathroom (not made clear in pictures)<br/>- is a parking nightmare outside (day passes are not provided as they are at other similar properties in the area)<br/>- is not a one-bedroom apartment (as we were told) but is, in fact, a studio apartment <br/><br/>It is in a fantastic location for the cricket ground

Lots of space, lots of facilities available.<br/><br/>Modern aesthetic and a good view from the bedroom. Very comfy bed. <br/><br/>Close to beach & other attractions.<br/><br/>No free parking but other apartments on the road were given free parking tickets. Stairs can be quite tiring especially to apartment 4 (top floor).<br/><br/>The bed sheets had multiple rips and stains on it, and what seemed to be a few pet hairs on the bedding. <br/><br/>When entering the apartment there is quite a noticeable hole in the wall as there is no door stop protecting the wall. <br/><br/>The bottom of the fridge door handle was broken on arrival. <br/><br/>There was a broken glass tumbler also. Some of the dishes and plates appeared to have left over food on them, too. <br/><br/>The toilet seat was only connected to one side so caused it to slip. <br/><br/>The towel holder in the bathroom was poorly fitted so kept rotating. <br/><br/>The sofa had lots of dry marks on it. <br/><br/>The televisions were exceptionally slow & took at least 10 seconds to work when operating it. <br/><br/>Overall, the apartment felt like it needed a deeper clean especially during COVID.

We stayed in the Wicket View Room. <br/>The modern style of the apartment, great for a couple of nights stay but any longer and the stairs become a bit of a pain, the parking becomes a bit of a pain and the Settee isn't very comfortable as its also a bed. <br/>Liked how close it was to the City Centre and to the Beach.<br/><br/>The 6 flights of stairs to get to the apartment, the windows weren't great either, full of Seagull mess and parking is a bit of a pain. <br/>We were staying for 4 nights from Friday until the Tuesday and on the Saturday early evening the Wifi that had been working great disappeared and was no longer available on any device, it was as though it has been turned off. I contacted support who said they would look into this, I phoned back later on as I hadn't heard anything and support confirmed what I had suspected in that the Router for the apartment was in someone else room and it looked like they had unplugged it, so I explained this was important to us as my wife wasn't to well after her second Covid Jab so we were staying in and we weren't able to use any of the Smart TV features in the room or any of the devices we had brought with us and they confirmed they would try to get this resolved asap. Sunday evening, over 24 hours later I contacted again and was basically told by the same person the issue I raised wasn't classed as an emergency so would have to wait, not impressed at all as you can imagine. The next morning from around 10am the Wifi was working again, clearly been turned back on or plugged back in, so we had been without WiFi for over 30 hours which included most of the weekend which I just thought wasn't acceptable when it was pretty obviously it had been unplugged or turned off, the support contact was great until the Sunday when I chased it and was then basically told it was tough. <br/>I was told I would be compensated for us not having Wifi, the offer was to give us 15% off our next stay which was 5% more than you get for being a returning guest, this had a big negative impact on our stay and I expected a bit more.
