Great location. Spacious, bright & clean. High quality kitchen. Very close to the beach & Whitby centre only a short walk but there are plenty of steps. Perfect for walking our dogs on the beach. When we stayed it was not busy & the apartment was peaceful. Everything we might have needed was there. No issues. Highly recommended.



The location to all attractions was perfect and the sea view was beautiful<br/><br/>It was quite uncomfortable, we were exhausted on one night and returned after a full day to relax. The settee was like sitting on wooden boards, extremely uncomfortable.



Great location close to the heart of whitby. I enjoyed watching the weather over the sea from the window... very peaceful



Location was fab, kitchen had everything needed & felt spacious for 2 people<br/><br/>Sofa was the most uncomfortable I’ve ever sat on, impossible to relax on ! <br/>Blinds in bedroom were thick dust <br/>We were on the ground floor (seaview retreat) & the door going to the stairs for the other apartments slams shut every time somebody heads through it, it was constantly slamming both evenings on a regular occurrence by other guests coming & going so maybe a soft closing door should be there as not pleasant to be awoken at 12, 1 & 2 each evening

Great stay. Easy check in and great location. Place spotlessly clean and even though it was an apartment we didn’t hear a peep from the neighbours.



Apartment is in a great location & generally well maintained. Unfortunately, I had some issues during my stay which marred the stay.<br/>The bedroom layout was changed after we had booked, from just a king-size bed to a double bed + a single bed. We were assured prior to going that there was still plenty of space for our baby’s crib. Upon arrival, we found this wasn’t the case and had to move the single bed to make space, leaving little floor space. Also, electrical sockets are still set up for the king-size so now located behind bed and not easily accessible.<br/>The listing advised a “scratch card” parking permit. This wasn’t there. We were told this would be sorted immediately but nothing done. Once we had left, we were refunded our parking fees but doesn’t take from the fact we had to sort this while away, also having to return to the car to renew tickets etc.<br/>We received no apologies for any issues - almost felt as though they were deliberately avoiding so not admitting fault



Location is great.<br/><br/>It hasn’t been cleaned upon our arrival and had to call to have someone come out. Very disappointing.<br/><br/>Also, insufficient parking permits provided. Had to pay for more which wasn’t expected. Bit poor.



Beautiful apartment. Would definitely stay again.



The property exceeded my expectations.













The view the location<br/><br/>Stained quilt stained sheet dirty toilet brush leak from upstairs door safe key falling off wall



The views and comfy bed



It's a breathtaking place, incredibly beautiful apartment - nice style and a lot of attention to detail. The view ist absolutely stunning. Everything is very clean and comfortable.<br/><br/>We were unable to enter via the front door on the second day. The door was broken and despite calling the Hotline, door of the building was still not fixed the next day.



Great location central to Witbey, lovely sea view. Comfortable, clean and smart accommodation. Would recommend.



The perfect location and a wonderful apartment right by the whale bones! Tastefully decorated and very comfortable, thanks for having us



The apartment had everything we needed. Great location. Comfy. Great view. Exactly what we needed.





Used the hob once and took 1/2 hour to cook bacon. <br/>I have same hob at home so used to cooking on it. Maybe needs looking in to.



Great location with lovely views, enjoyed morning coffee looking across to the sea . The bed is comfortable but creaky! We enjoyed our stay



Apartment extremely nice and the location is brilliant. Right on the front with car park close by. Great views of the sea.



Nice clean apartment in a good location. Being a ground floor property next to the entrance meant that it was quite noisy, lots of banging doors and people stomping up and down stairs. The hosting process with Host and Stay was very corporate and efficient, although the insurance registration requirement was initially quite off-putting and felt like some kind of scam.



Just returned from a 5 day stay at the Seaview Retreat. A lovely apartment with a fabulous view, 10 mins walk down to the pier. <br/>The apartment is clean and well maintained, check in was easy and so was the parking <br/><br/>(please make sure you fill the parking scratch cards out correctly - year, month & (1st day of your stay only) we saw lots of people get tickets cos thwy either missed off the year or month or scratched all the days of there stay, which makes card invalid.<br/><br/>It really is a lovely place ans we wouldn't hesitate returning



Fantastic location.<br/><br/>The sofa is extremely uncomfortable and the bed was so noisy. Every time you turned over in bed you woke up. Also having to drag a chair to the windows to open and close the blinds as the strings are too short wasn’t ideal. Anyone with mobility problems would find this really difficult. The outside of the building/garden is desperately in need of some tlc. Hate being so negative but the property needs some attention before the rating goes down.





Parking is definitely a problem. We got two tickets - once for having the letter R of the last letter of the license plate look too much like an P. The second time was for putting the “disc” in the middle of the dashboard. The reason given was that it wasn’t clearly displayed. The suite is lovely though- clean , lots of coffee and tea. We had dinner at Pizza West just a short walk from the suite and was so amazing ! Highly recommend



Fantastic location on the West Cliff, closest to the beach which is short walk down directly opposite the front door of the property. Pavilion is right there too and also a rest area and little coffee/sweet shop that opens 9am every morning if want a drink or an ice cream. View is amazing!! <br/>The town center is very close also and is short walk down some stairs from the cliff in multiple places or if want a more gentle walk down you can follow the road behind which brings you to the center of town. <br/>Property was very comfortable for the two of us and access/arrangements were made easy thanks to the property management company, including a parking scratch card which allows you to use the allocated parking areas near the property for the length of our stay.



Loved it so did my brother thanks so much, love whitby so much<br/><br/>Nothing brilliant



The location was perfect. Right on the beach front and a 2 minute walk from the harbour.<br/><br/>The front door didn’t work, it took us lots of attempts every evening to get back in. The handle was awful & didn’t open most of the time. Massively disappointed that we wanted self catering due to me being 8 months pregnant we didn’t want to be going out all of the time but this ended up happening as the hob/cooker didn’t work. For over £100 a night we expected more & then ended up spending more money to eat out.



really lovely and clean<br/><br/>squeaky bed, no black out curtains/blinds in the bedroom



Beautiful decor throughout really homey<br/><br/>N/A



their was no breakfast<br/><br/>not enough clothing space and no handrail in the bath



Fantastic place in a great location, and very clean and comfortable. Only niggles would be the blinds that let in a lot of light, and the (very, very comfortable) bed which makes a loud squeaking noise with every movement.



Great Location and lovely views outside the apartment. Check in very simple!



Good location, very comfortable bed, nicely presented apartment with all we needed for a week, including washing machine and dishwasher and a good shower with plenty of hot water. Very clean apartment with freshly painted decor and good condition carpets and furniture.<br/><br/>Sofa looked nice but wasn't very comfortable so had to put plenty of pillows and cushions on it. It was a bit bright in the bedroom in the mornings with only blinds so curtains would have helped. Squeaky bed although very comfortable.



The location on the seafront was very good with a great sea view. <br/>The contact from the booking company was excellent. <br/>Parking with the provided card was easy.<br/>The flat was very clean and tidy and had everything needed for a nice stay..<br/><br/>.Could do with more instructions. The TV needs a basic guide as it took a while to figure it out. Also someone has set the cooker so it wouldn't work. Had to ask for help which was provided quickly. <br/>Plastic plants and black and white decor was a little plain and functional. Although I loved the blue chairs in the window as a splash of colour..<br/>Some "clutter" would be nice, such as playing cards, books, local magazines, tourist info, etc.<br/>Creaky metal bed is not as shown in the pictures.



the apartment was in the perfect location only a 5 minute walk into the bay to all the bars and restaurants , had everything you needed was like a home from home<br/><br/>the only bad thing about the apartment was the bed would squeak as soon as you went near it and woke you up in the night if you turned over from the noise





perfect location with a sea view and the parking permit<br/><br/>noise from the other residents, some scuffed walls needed repainting and the picture above the radiator needed replacing as the frame had melted





Lovely, clean apartment in a great location.



Excellent location and ground floor. Easy free parking with the free scratch cards provided. The kitchen was well equipped with the added bonus of a dishwasher.<br/><br/>The whole point of an apartment is that you can relax, especially if you have been out walking all day, however there is absolutely no way you could ever get comfy on that terrible terrible settee, design has definitely been picked over comfort. The bed was far too soft for us but I also understand that is a very personal choice. The bathroom has a shower over it and to adjust the temperature you have to adjust the taps on the bath!! I believe this was refurbished only 18 months ago but some of the decisions are strange. This property could be so much more but the issues mean we wouldn’t return which is an absolute shame because we have stayed with Host & Stay previously.



great location<br/><br/>the sofa is the most uncomfortable thing I’ve ever sat on! also as others have said the bed makes a racket when you get in and out of it, but the bed is comfortable



I stayed with a friend on a long weekend in February, the whole process was seamless from checking in to finding where to park. The apartment is perfectly located in Whitby, easy to walk to everything and has a beautiful sea view to enjoy a coffee in the morning.



Had many problems with to front door, key and code, like the other couple who stayed.<br/>Not good late at night.



excel t location<br/><br/>The settee was extremely uncomfortable






Great stay definitely worth booking



Location of this property was brilliant, not even a minutes walk to the whalebones. Rooms were bright and of a decent size. Good facilities provided. Milk in the fridge is always a nice touch aswell.<br/><br/>Few minor things, such as a pile of dried muck met us on the carpet as we 1st entered which had been cleaned for our arrival, sofa was quite hard and uncomfortable and I had to tighten the bolts on the bed by hand as it was all loose and squeaky. A wardrobe is needed, considering size of bedroom, not just a little hanging thing off the wall, also if you're bigger than an average person, then getting by the bed to the bathroom could prove difficult. <br/>The toilet seat hadn't been cleaned as throughly as it should've been. The electric heaters in all rooms were absolutely rubbish, heated up briefly when 1st turned on then cut out with error codes, had to reset these about every hour and obviously through the night it became quite cold as these would cut out. Reported this 1st morning, think maintenance came out however this didn't get resolved. The other issue we had was the bay window in the living room leaked quite badly from the ceiling, guessing from the flat roof another 2 floors up.



fantastic location. very well presented, clean and well appointed. residents parking vouchers provided. lovely to have direct views of the sea.<br/><br/>front door system a bit baffling and other residents can lock you in , needing the key. sofa looks great, but is uncomfortable to sit on.



In a great location, a lovely flat



the position of the apartment facing the sea and a lovely well kept apartment<br/><br/>the only problem was it was a metal framed bed and it just made noise every time you sat on it or when you you was moving to get in bed or out



Great place to stay to write your book which is what I did.



Fabulous apartment, decor not as photos but still comfortable. <br/>Well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher<br/><br/>Not that important but the vertical blind cords designed for tall people. <br/>Bed creaks!!!!



I can’t say enough about how great our stay was. <br/>The property was so much more than expected. The flat is perfectly positioned close to all the amenities but far enough away to be nice and quiet. Lovely and clean, stylish and had plenty of space. What a view too. Amazing



The location spectacular views<br/><br/>The towels in the property were threadbare other than that no problem



Accommodation as described. Good location overlooking the sea. Parking is at a premium so the visitors parking pass is extremely useful.



The location was right on the seafront which gives stunning views of the coast. Very modern and clean with a stunning kitchen area with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Lounge was beautiful with seats in front of the large bay window offering those views. Lovely bedroom with very comfortable bed and a very clean and functional en-suite. Only downside was no wardrobe, only a bracket on the wall with limited hanging space, but we managed fine. A lovely apartment which I would recommend to visitors to Whitby.<br/><br/>Lack of hanging space for clothes.



Great Location and lovely clean apartment!



Great flat. Couldn’t ask for more. High quality finish. Great views and well situated. Would stay again. Only think to note is parking zones is a bit confusing so be aware - we got a parking ticket because I parked on the road that the permit wasn’t valid for. All in all a tip-top in a lovely flat in wonderful Whitby. 5*’s from us.



Great stuff at a great location. Clean modern flat with stunning views over the sea at Whitby. Good communication through out and check in east and contactless. <br/>Only negatives (both we accepted pre-arrival)<br/>-very early check out which isn’t idea and not negotiable.<br/>-Price >£200 a night (probably as a result of COVID related increase in staycations) was too high for a small one bed flat in our opinion but guess that was just the climate at the time of our break. <br/>Overall enjoyed our stay and if the price was better in future would consider staying again



Great location, looks great. Well appointed.



It's very nice, good location and has everything you need provided including kitchen and bathroom stuff

Lisa From Serviced Short Stays


Lovely apartment in a great location. The level of cleanliness was great which, at the current time, is reassuring.



Seaview Retreat is just as described a lovely retreat with the open spaciousness of the sea right in front you. 2 armchairs sit in the bay window with blinds, so you can sit and watch the world go by until your heart is content. The accommodation has been completed to a very high standard, it is modern, sleek, clean and a pleasure to spend time in. It is very well equipped, enough crockery, pots n pans to make a 3 course meal should you wish, but it is close enough to the town to be able to wander out, have a meal and a wander and then head back when you want a cuppa. Ideal location and a popular coffee hut directly opposite that also sells Ice Cream. What more do you need when in Whitby? Accessibility i.e getting into the accommodation was easy and Stay kept up communication right throughout the process. <br/> I would highly recommend SeaView Retreat:)



This is a great place to stay in Whitby. The flat was very nice, clean and modern. The flat was in the perfect location - over the road from the beach, close to the town centre and with sea and sunset views. The hosts were responsive and provided all information needed. Would highly recommend.



This pictures of this apartment don't do it justice! Modern but cosy, with all the amenities you could need and everything is essentially brand new. It's in an ideal location, right on the sea front but walking distance from town. If you drive you may need to hunt a little bit for a parking spot, but free parking is provided. The checking in and out process was smooth and easy and communication around the entire booking was top notch. I'd definitely stay here again.



Lovely apartment, fantastic location and great communication.
