Great place to stay! Perfect location literally a few minutes walking distance to everything. Only downside was the parking however we got lucky to park at the train station for the duration of our trip (although it cost us £30 for the whole time).

Location was great. Car park nearby but we were lucky to get a space on the road and could leave it there for the whole weekend.<br/><br/>Tv on the wall. Wasn’t too comfortable to watch.

Francis

We had a great stay in Whitby. The only problem we had was before the stay. From start to arrival I kept finding more charges and problems with parking. I was told the price to stay each day. Then when you go through to pay you get a cleaning charge that was not mentioned. Ok then a few days before we leave I get a damaged charge which I have not paid before. Then on the day we leave to go to whitby we are told that I can not park outside the property as it said I could. I parked across the road at £10 a day. The free parking that we did find cards for in the property was for to far away . We loved the house very comfortable,and a great location in whitby. Had a good time. But not happy with run up to going.

Absolutely beautiful property, with every you could possibly want or need.<br/><br/>Would have been nice if it had been vacuumed before our arrival also wrappers from under the bed & there was someone’s old contact lenses at the side of the bed.

Lovely little place. Not much space in living area but a traditional old cottage renovated to a very good standard. Bed comfortable and sheets lovely and fresh as was the towels. Nice little extras such as milk, coffee, tea and plenty of toilet paper. All nice touches that you don’t always find. Music from Station Inn on Friday night was a bit loud but all quiet at 11.30 pm so not a big deal at all. Definitely recommend and will be back to stay again!

Alan

12/01/2024

Great location in the heart of Whitby. Really clean accommodation with modern fixtures and fittings. Would book again.

Katie

05/01/2024

Central location but right next door to one of the pubs - music so loud you can sing along! Perfect if you’re visiting for a lively weekend but not so much if you like an early night.<br/><br/>There were some issues with overflow sewerage - meaning the cottage was only accessible from one side.

Jason

12/12/2023

Lovely little spot in the heart of Whitby walking distance to all the spots you want to visit, struggled with communication early on but believe this was due to a technical issue. Once fixed everything went smoothly

Lynne

We really enjoyed staying at Grumbles Cottage. It was very clean and cosy. Great location and very well equipped. We would definitely return.

Alan

04/11/2023

Stayed in the property before so knew exactly what to expect. Small cottage ideal for 3/4 people and a brilliant location close to all that Whitby has to offer.<br/><br/>More attention to cleaning needed. Very dusty everywhere and the bedroom carpet was full of black marks.

Gail

15/09/2023

Location was brilliant, very clean, well equipped.<br/><br/>Stairs to first floor were steep and narrow but such a sharp turn at the top that we struggled to get bags up and were on all fours going up, coming own was a bit of a nightmare. Pleased my husband with size 13 feet wasn't there as he wouldn't have been able to fit his feet on those corner stairs !

Location was absolutely perfect , nice well kept cottage.<br/><br/>Would have liked to have had 2 keys to the property as we were 2 couples .

Chas

25/08/2023

The negatives are late check in and early check out. 4 pm check in reflects most of the day you cant even enjoy the accomodation youve paid for . If people have to check out at 10 am why cant you get in until 4pm ? It doesnt take 6 hours to clean up!<br/>Also car parking means having to hump cases and children quite a distance to and from the car to house.<br/>The steep stairs are a safety issue involving children or anyone slightly infirm and should be emphasised accordingly.<br/>The good points are location for walking around Whitby and its clean , but cleanliness is to be expected of any air bnb.

Molly

24/08/2023

I would visit this place again. It was lovely.

Jonny

21/08/2023

We really enjoyed our stay and the cottage was lovely, however we found it really stressful finding the place and unloading if you arrive in a car due to the fact that the cottage is in an alley way and to unload you have to negotiate a pedestrian precinct. This wasn’t made clear to us as the online guide doesn’t really explain adequately how to find the place. We had to get my wife to find the place whilst we negotiated a busy town centre. We then had to park in the station car park and run our bags across the road. Parking after we had unloaded was really hard to come across. We had to park the car nearly a mile away from the cottage. We were travelling with our elderly relatives and there is no way that they would have been able to park that far away and then walk back. This cottage would be best suited to travellers who are either younger or are travelling by train. Also there wasn’t enough cutlery for 4 people and there was no hand wash in either of the 2 bathrooms.

Lovely place to stay, easy to find and central to Whitby. The cottage was clean and everything we expected. Slight downside was parking. We parked 5-10 mins away on a residential road. <br/>All in all was a lovely stay

Tracy

30/07/2023

Central location very clean and modern<br/><br/>The stairs were abit steep

Emma

28/07/2023

Location was perfect, next to train and bus station so we didn't have to go far with our luggage. Was expecting it to be noisy at night because of the location but the only noise came from the seagulls! House was well equipped with everything we needed and there was a supermarket right across the road. Host and stay were extremely helpful and always responded promptly to any queries I had.<br/><br/>Didn't affect us but the staircase could be an issue for some as it was very steep and narrow.

Lisa

28/07/2023

Really lovely cottage in the centre with everything within walking distance, perfect for our overnight stay however due to the location we wouldn’t have wanted to stay longer. We were aware it could be noisy but hadn’t thought how warm it would be when unable to open the windows. <br/>Apart from that it was spotlessly clean and in a great location

Simon

20/07/2023

The cottage straight away was impressive , lovely decor,kitchen & 2 bathrooms were good.<br/>Location was probably ideal fir Whitby. <br/>Very peaceful and quiet yet nearly on top of where you need to be. <br/>Amenities were good with everything we needed fir three nights also a local supermarket within 3 minute walk if you’ve forgotten anything .<br/>Would definitely stay here again and use host and stay in the future

Jeanette

19/07/2023

Clean, modern cottage , overly comfy beds . Plenty of crockery, cooking utensils.<br/><br/>Outside dirty yard . Very small living room . Very dark cottage only one room light and bright . Very grubby seat cushions on seat benches . Had to remove them and put away !

Diane

17/07/2023

Location was fantastic cottage was lovely and had all modern appliances<br/><br/>The only thing I could fault is that we had trouble finding the cottage and had to phone host and stay perhaps if they’d have said it’s next to Molly Browns across from the train station would have helped

Giovanna

05/07/2023

I loved the place and its décor and the location. We stayed only one night but it would have been perfect for a longer stay, the space was good and it was equipped with everything you may need, even a dishwasher. We were 2 couples and a baby and having a common space but 2 bathroom was amazing.<br/>Only down point was that I found hair on the sink and the floor in one of the bathroom and the carpet hadn't been hoovered properly, with bits all over; apart for that it was clean.

Alice

04/07/2023

Location<br/><br/>top floor bed had marks and stains on the sheet, top floor bathroom was dusty and felt unclean as if it had been forgotten. Middle bathroom and kitchen were fine

Beautiful little apartment facilities were great, Spotless on arrival Location was perfect<br/><br/>The alleyway outside was a little littered but not the apartments fault (just thought this was worth mentioning so pressure can be put on the authorities responsible) I am nit picking here)

Kerri

A fabulous stay in the heart of Whitby. Comfortable, stylish and clean accommodation. Loved that we were so close to all the restaurants, entertainment and the beach. So much to see and do. Loved every minute of it.

Benjamonya

Location was perfect and the decor was lovely.. Hoover, coffee machine, towels and toiletries all provided which was great.<br/><br/>Dog wasn't allowed upstairs despite being dog friendly. White walls were scuffed and needed a touch of paint. Toilets smelt slightly

Clare

09/04/2023

Perfect location opposite the harbour, the only thing for us was the noise at night as it’s right next to a lively bar and trying to find it and get everything to the house was a bit of a nightmare but having been there if we were to go again would be easier! This place would be perfect for a girls weekend or a boys weekend as you are right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle! The other great thing is you have everything you could possibly need right on your doorstep <br/>The harbour<br/>A big co-op<br/>Dominoes <br/>Bars and restaurants <br/>The high street <br/>Definitely worth checking out

We had a member family rushed into hospital we notified the company and asked for a full refund and offered to show proof of what happened. <br/><br/>We was told we would have a response within 24hrs they finally responded 3 days later after the point that we would have been able to have any sort of a refund. <br/>We chased them every day asking for a answer. <br/>I wouldn’t book again with this company next time I will stick with Skyes…. Better the devil you know

Judy

21/03/2023

super lovely apartment. Nice and clean with all modern decor. Carpets were soft and beds were comfy. Well stocked kitchen, dishwasher etc. and great location! only little grumbles were how small it was and steep stairs up to the top bedroom. Aside from that I loved it and would stay again.<br/><br/>there's no view, its a little small, steep stairs inside.

Caroline

Lovely cottage, and really nice decor.<br/><br/>It was a very cold week and the cottage was quite cold. Kept trying to turn the heating up but it was constantly changed back remotely. Also the music from The Station pub was very loud on the Wednesday night but I suppose you expect that being close to a pub.

Eve

Cara

04/03/2023

Wonderful place to stay, beautiful decoration! Very central and close to all attractions and shops, but this does mean there was bit of noise from the next door pub on the Friday night but that’s to be expected with the central location. Very close to the train station and there’s lots of parking nearby. Co-op is right opposite also. <br/><br/>Lots of amenities in the kitchen and the bathrooms and beds were very comfy. <br/><br/>Overall great stay

Gary

02/03/2023

Nice Little Cottage, perfect for a work stopover

Emma

26/02/2023

The house was in a great location as you literally stepped out into restaurants and bars. It was also great having two ensuite bedrooms of decent sizes. There were a couple of downsides but not enough to reduce the value for money. Firstly, the convenience of being close to bars and pubs also means that it is very loud at night! Secondly, the house felt like it needed a bit of tlc in places.

Jan

24/02/2023

We had a lovely 3 night stay. Although compact, the cottage felt luxurious. The positioning couldn’t be more central - it was lovely to easily pop back to the cottage throughout the day. This did however make for a not so peaceful stay, particularly in the evenings. We were aware of the location beforehand, so we were prepared for this, and it didn’t spoil our holiday.

Norcross

20/02/2023

The Location was very good for exploring Whitby and within seconds from walking out of the property you are in the shops and on the front. <br/>The 2 bedrooms again very nice lots of space and slept well.<br/>Everything you needed for a few nights stay<br/><br/>The stairs a little steep to the second floor and could here the music from the pubs on the front but only till 23.00 hours .

Laura

27/12/2022

Brilliant property, great location, just a shame the nightlife caused concern. The front door was punched/ticket multiple times at 8pm and the noise from the pubs/clubs nearby kept us up at night.

Debbie

19/12/2022

Excellent location, lovely little cottage. If I had any negative to say it would be not having a downstairs toilet but understand this is not pheasanle due to the size of the downstairs.

Lindsay

Lucas

18/10/2022

lovely, modern and clean and the location is perfect!<br/><br/>the stairs are quite dangerous I slipped down them twice and my partner was nearly caught out by them aswel. I would say they aren’t suitable for people less mobile.

Niomi

13/10/2022

Smaller than expected, parking not great which was a pain but the co-op opposite is £10 a day so wasn’t too far away. Stairs are slightly dangerous, wouldn’t recommend if taking kids/baby. Had a couple of issues with the electrics when first got there but they got it sorted for us very quickly. Other than that an enjoyable experience, would just suit a couple more than a family
