Location was excellent. Close to town centre and all amenities. Facilities within the property were excellent. Kitchen had everything we would want and more besides - freezer needs defrosting. Would have been useful to have paper guidelines for the appliances rather than a download! <br/>Lounge and dining area excellent. Plenty of seating and beds comfy.<br/><br/>Couple of cosmetic gripes - missing blind in one of bedrooms and bathroom fan didn't work. Also a property for 8 people really needs more than one shower! Adequate number of toilets. <br/>The big issue was parking. I appreciate there was only one parking space but it was not apparent that after the yellow lines we were on private land - a sign would be useful. This would save us incurring the wrath of the landowner and a 15 min diatribe about the parking issues he has had over the years!! Also nearest car park was quite expensive considering we would be there for 4 days.



Great place to stay in a good location. Really nice, clean and spacious inside and lovely decor<br/>My only problem is the damage deposit required as i paid the refundable £250 (minus £10 for some reason) and have still not received this refund almost 2 weeks after our stay. We did not cause any damage and this should have been checked and refunded by now in my opinion.



Good location, clean and modern accommodation. Good communication from hosts and easy to access<br/><br/>Only 1 bath/shower which could be a challenge if fully occupied. Took 2 weeks to refund security deposit, should really be immediately following post-departure clean. Only 1 parking space, plenty of on-street parking nearby but only for 3 hours.



Great stay, many thanks for helping us out!<br/>Much appreciated



We visit Whitby as a family every year and always end up staying in two separate hotels (one suitable for children and one suitable for dogs) this year we found The Mount and it was everything we wanted and more. The photos don’t do it justice, it was immaculate, perfect location and great size (the kitchen being my favourite!) <br/>We are booking to stay again next year (and every year after that if it’s available!)







Really lovely place to stay in a great location for such a good price. Was very accommodating for myself and friends. Host and Stay were very helpful with everything!



Plenty of space clean and easy to get to every thing.<br/><br/>Only thing we think would help people is maybe a television in the bedrooms.



The property was extremely clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Everything was modern, nicely decorated and the place provided a relaxing stay for everyone in our party. There was plenty of room for us all and the location was excellent! We will definitely be booking The Mount again for any future visits to Whitby.<br/><br/>The property was warm but in one of the rooms the heating didn’t warm up the room the same as the others. This was in the largest double room.



The room was clean,the location was great and everything was fine.<br/><br/>N/A



Grat location, lovely home.<br/><br/>Bedroom floor was wet, no soap in any room. Only one parking space.



Nice place, good size for a family weekend away. Great location, only short walk down into town.<br/>However, bad damp in one bedroom. The bad “must” smell and wet carpet making it uncomfortable. <br/>Could do with freeing up their 2 locked car parking places saved for cleaners. This would allow for more than one car parking space for a large place. Parking near by is mostly permit only.



This property is beautiful and in a fantastic location in the centre of Whitby. The fixtures, fittings and furniture were all of a high standard. However the property has an issue with damp in one of the bedrooms which we could smell on arrival. The wall was wet, as was a section of the carpet. There was green mould on the skirting board which was starting to come away from the wall due to the water getting into the room from the road outside due to insufficient drainage. The bedding felt damp and the two party members using that room ended up sleeping on the sofas and leaving a night early.<br/>While we were at the property we found a review from September 2023 which highlighted the same issue and we were upset that despite a significant damp issue they were continuing to rent the property out. The foisty, damp smell was disgusting and quite overpowering at times.Air BnB gave us a small refund but the owners have still not acknowledged or responded to the complaints form I completed!



Great location , excellent accommodation

Hazel W


The holiday accommodation is nice and new done to a high standard .It is advertised as luxury but I feel it lacks a few luxury touches!! Hand soap in the toilets would be nice ,a slip mat in ths bath as bath very slippy when wet .A welcome pack would be nice some milk ,small loaf,butter or margarine .We were left 4 tea bags for eight people and some coffee and milk sachets .When fluffing up the sofa cushions there was lots of crumbs,hair and general debris nothing a good vacuum wouldn't solve .The down stairs bedroom carpet was sodden and room smelt damp .There was only one parking pace and two spaces blocked off for maintenance and owners ,a waist really as guests have to be out foe 10 so cleaners have space available to use .Emails asking not to leave a mess a bit condescending .Its not a cheap rental at £700 + for two nights .



The house was beautiful an lots of space and everything we needed, beds were very comfy. Highly recommend!!



clean and well furnished<br/><br/>only 1 shower and tv too high on the wall





A wonderful location,clean well equipped with everything and spacious. And surprisingly quiet. Would definitely recommend this place.the only thing which I could put as a negative is the fact in one of the bedrooms there isn’t any blinds which means it gets light in the morning .





Stayed at 4 The Mount as a family of 5 adults and we absolutely loved it! Beautifully appointed, clean, very spacious, uncluttered… a really wonderful place to stay in Whitby. A real bonus having a parking space. The location couldn’t be any better. Great communication with ‘Host & Stay’ too. We’ll definitely be booking here again.



Location was good ., all of the house was lovely .We were a group of eight and it was very comfortable .we all said we would like to come back next year.





Lovely location, fantastic communication from the hosts. Would highly recommend.
