Everything. The property is exactly like what is shown. Super clean and has everything that one will need to have a enjoyable stay.<br/><br/>Can't think of anything.



Location , modern, facilities<br/><br/>A duvet cover was ripped at the seam in one room and a stain on the other duvet cover



We loved the location and the view on the whole, bit spoiled by number of cars but, cant be helped? Quiet, clean, comfortable. Only drawbacks would have preferred more clean towels as they were wet after couple uses and some milk in fridge would have been nice, but overall excellent. So cosy and comfortable and easy access, brilliant parking!! AND those beds we all thought were super super comfortable, where are the matresses from. The rear view (bedrooms) left something to be desired but heh - the front made up for it. Excellent thank you we would definitely come back. We saw a whole new side of Whitby staying up there.<br/><br/>As above milk on arrival, more towels - few more mugs/cups/glasses, cutlery maybe and couple more tea towels.



No meals were included. The location was excellent with good sea views although the surrounding area felt a bit mixed. The apartment had everything we needed for a 3 night stay. Furnishings and fittings on the whole were of a good standard and quality<br/><br/>There was nothing to dislike but the mattress protector was missing on the bed in the second bedroom and there was a shortage of tumblers although plenty of other glasses. We found the 13.5 tog quilts far too warm even though it was a cold weekend. Some spare lighter weight quilts of 4.5 tog or even 9 tog would have made our stay perfect and resulted in a score of 10…!



Beautiful location and lovely apartment



very modern and comfortable with beautiful furnishings.<br/><br/>Nothing



Great location for the town and beach. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment. The beds were super comfy, and everything was provided for a great stay.<br/><br/>The communication between and Host and Stay was not very efficient. We didn't receive several vital notifications about arrival, and about a problem that arose whilst staying there.<br/>Instructions re the property eg how things worked, where to put recycling and rubbish, were very scant.



Fabulous apartment located on the quieter side of the town. The view of the sea is stunning and local shops and cafes are only a short walk away.



Very modern, spacious and comfortable. Immaculate and very relaxing, excellent amenities and short walk from town.<br/><br/>No complaints about property



Me and my family came to stay for a long weekend and had a wonderful time at this apartment. It was warm, cosy and clean and matches the photos you see. The location is beautiful with a very nice and easy walk into the centre of Whitby. The hosts were very responsive and helped us secure parking permits (which are only available November-March) which we were very grateful for. I would 100% recommend and would stay again!



Fabulous stay at The Connell. <br/>High spec beautiful apartment with stunning sea front views. Location great, a few minutes from the Whale Bones feature.<br/>.Easy to find the premises, there are parking permits inside the property which meant we could park right outside which was great. <br/>Really comfy beds, lovely bedding & towels. Had a fab nights sleep, the temperature was perfect in the bedroom. <br/>Had everything we needed in the apartment for our stay.<br/>The host Charlie was extremely helpful with excellent communication.<br/>All round, a top class place to stay & we definitely want to book again in the near future. <br/>Thank you for a hassle free, luxury break. Wonderful!!



The bluetooth mirror in the bathrooms were a great touch! Gorgeous apartment in a great location! The apartment was so clean!<br/><br/>Check in time was a little late, we arrived around 2pm and went straight into Whitby as we couldn't check in, however as there was no reception it meant we didn't have to rush back to check in we just used the lock box.



just back from our second stay at the connell, a very nice place to stay, everything you would need and more, we will definetly be returning very soon, just love Whitby and the surrounding resorts, it is a magical place, can't wait till we return.



Flat was just as described. Situation was very accessible. Found some great restaurants, and lots of historical sights.



Lovely place. Modern comfortable flat. Really homely . The best place I’ve stayed at in Whitby. <br/>The only issue for me was. No welcome pack. Left one dishwasher tab for 4 days and not even a tea towel . Really poor for a luxury place like this. Having said that I would happily go again. Such a nice location.



A great apartment in a perfect location to explore Whitby and the surrounding area.



Stunning sea views, smart modern appartment



Perfect location. Very clean and modern. Comfortable. Difficult to find any drawbacks. Hassle free enjoyable stay in the heart of Whitby. Just a few doors down from where Bram Stoker put pen to paper.<br/><br/>All good.



just returned from a very relaxing break at the connell Whitby, everything you need provided, very spacious apartment, lift to help with luggage, we will be returning again very soon, one of the if not the best apartment I have stayed in, thank you for an amazing stay.



The stay was execellent and the apartment was well situated for the town and great sea views , we will be returning .<br/><br/>I can’t think of anything



Well appointed location and great apartment.



I brought a young lady with mental health issues as a working holiday. She loved everything about it.<br/><br/>I wasn't happy that the parking scratch card only covered 4 day's I was almost given a parking elderly gentleman neighbour put a card on my car which surficed my not being given a fine. Our stay was for 5 nights the scratch card should have accommodated for that.



Really lovely, wonderfully large apartments near the beach at the heart of Whitby. There was a lift to all floors, beds were wonderful, shower was powerful, blue tooth mirrors were a treat, kitchen was really pleasant and well stocked, including a coffee maker, and lounge facilities all which were spotless and very comfortable.<br/><br/>No complaints apart from the musky smell in the en-suite bathroom. The fan switches were placed too far up for shorter people to use so fans probably weren’t being used adequately to eliminate moisture.



Karen H


Stayed here with our teenage girls for two nights this week. Great having two seperate bedrooms and bathrooms. What a lovely apartment, everything you need and only 5 mins walk to the harbour. Sea views and location are wonderful and it was spotlessly clean! Thank you Nicola x Beds massive and super comfy. Would definitely stay again.



Lovely apartment in a perfect location in Whitby



The apartment was great. Really nice location. Good communication from the staff and clear guidelines regarding the stay. Very pleased with it. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be booking again in the future. Thank you.<br/><br/>Nill





Second time staying at The Connell. Great flat in a great location only problem is the smell from the en-suite. Didn’t put me off coming back but a shame that it is still there, especially in such a lovely flat.





Convenient location. Parking great very <br/>Clean. V comfortable beds and pillows. Well equipped kitchen.<br/><br/>Some drain smells in the en-suite. Could do with sorting that.



Check in too late and check out too early



The flat was excellent ,very clean ,very modern in a good location.<br/><br/>the late check in 4.00 o clock,and the parking permet can not be obtained till you enter the property,so have to find additional parking .



Clean and tidy. Location was excellent. Absolutely lovely apartment.<br/><br/>Nothing



Modern facilities even down to the Nespresso machine. very clean, comfortable beds. Excellent location and sea view. Lift was handy for luggage.<br/><br/>Dreadful smell of drains from en-suite bathroom. We had to leave the bathroom light on 24/7 to activate the extractor fan. Even that did not totally eliminate bad smell. Flat opposite also had the same problem. <br/>The other bathroom was fine but the bath water on there was not hot enough.



Really enjoyed our stay. The flat was comfortable and was in an amazing location. The views were exceptional.



Location of the property <br/>Beautiful views <br/>Modern comfortable apartment<br/><br/>There was a bad smell in the en suite throughout our2 night stay. <br/>Body wash & shampoo provided were not enough for a 2 night stay



Great location & sea view, & well furnished reasonably sizeable, comfortable apartment, pretty new, with good appliances.<br/><br/>Host & Stay were awful to deal with - extra information & payments needed after booking (which i'd never had before with <br/>En suite bathroom smelt awful. <br/>the duvet cover on one bed had a huge rip in it - on the insider, so not noticeable until we went to bed (although was promptly replaced the next next).



The decor and view were fabulous. Very well finished<br/><br/>The smell in the ensuite



Very clean and tidy.



Had everything we needed, well maintained and a great location.<br/><br/>.



Cleanliness of apartment, decor, facilities, parking permit, location on seafront<br/><br/>Far too many emails from Host and Stay throughout the process - really annoying



Lovely apartment for a family of 4 and would be perfect for 2 couples. Well equipped, lovely beds, nice bathrooms and great views. Location was great and only a short walk into town :)



The apartment was as stated in on the website. It was very clean and the location was excellent. Host and Stay were excellent. Whenever we had a query or an issue it was dealt with quickly and effectively, for example we asked for the bed in bedroom 2 to be split but upon arrival it wasn't. I emailed Host and Stay on the day of arrival and they came on the morning of the following day to rectify the issue. I would not hesitate in using Host and Stay again.<br/><br/>Although the little issues did not spoil our stay I think they still need to be pointed out. In a recent review I noted that a spotlight in the on-suite bathroom was not working, it was still out during our stay. Spare bedding (duvets) were stored in the wardrobe which reduced our storage space. The last issue, which has been raised many times previously, is the smell in the on-suite bathroom. As we had read about this in previous reviews we were prepared, so used a scented candle during our stay which helped massively. I think this problem maybe something which is out of the control of Host and Stay but I think it should be mentioned when booking.





Lovely appartment. Everything catered for..<br/>Lovely location. With stunning views over the bay. Managed to park car ,right outside property for free. with the use of permit. Everything provided in appartment. You don't need to take anything.<br/><br/>Smell coming from ensuite bathroom.



Comfortable, reasonable size rooms, great location.<br/><br/>Sofas were a bit uncomfortable.



lovely period building, very nicely renovated, wonderful view etc<br/><br/>the master bedroom smelled of damp



lovely property in excellent location<br/><br/>smell of sewage in en-suite and light out in en-suite



Superb location and beautiful flat amazing for my mum who is older so lift appreciated and parking zone card.



Beautiful property. Spotless. Great views. Property is ideal for anyone with mobility problems as lift available.



Lou & Dave


The place was spacious for 4 adults. Clean and tidy. The building has a lift which is a treat after all that walking. Close enough to the town and great views of the sea. Parking was a plus too. I did have to raise a couple of points to the host but they communicated back quickly and got it sorted.



It was clean and spacious with all amenities, good view of the sea also.<br/><br/>There was a smell in the Ensuite which was foul, needs something looking at in there.



very modern with good facilities



Lovely location with beautiful view. Map link gives a location some 80 metres further up the road, and “Avalon Hotel” name is misleading.



A light bulb out in the en-suite. A sewerage smell in the en-suite

Chistopher James


I’ve given a 1 star as I can’t give 0. <br/>The apparment stunk of raw sewage coming from the en-suite shower! <br/>Host and stay couldn’t have cared less, terrible communication form host and stay. Now 2 weeks on and still not satisfied with Host amd Saty response! Just not good enough.



A very good flat which is well equipped. We would return to this apartment.<br/><br/>There was no soap dish in the shower.. There was also a slight drain smell in both bathrooms. <br/>There was a light not working in the on suite bathroom.. everything else was good.



Great stay, really lovely ?



The fact that there is a lift. <br/>Parking is easy and so convenient. <br/>The location is spectacular. <br/>Contemporary, spotless furniture and decor.<br/>A modern, effective heating system<br/><br/>A drier would be a good idea. So would a clothes rack.<br/>There is a washer but nowhere to dry your clothes and nowhere to hang clothes that you need to dry naturally. <br/>The fact that there is a desperate need for accommodation of this standard available in Whitby.





A beautiful Apartment with a lovely view and a brilliant location. The parking permit was an essential and greatly appreciated.<br/><br/>Info in the blue folder about some aspects of the flat would have been helpful eg bins, recycling and how to access increased hot water requirement. However, we had a wonderful stay and were very impressed with our accommodation.



Really lovely, modern and clean apartment in a brilliant location.<br/><br/>Terrible drain smell from en-suite which you can smell throughout the apartment, this was such a pity because everything else was great.



The sewage smell coming from the en-suite bathroom was horrible. The whole flat was smelly, very unpleasant. Other reviewers said the same but I expected the issue would have been fixed after a few complaints but that was not the case.



location was great and had a really comfortable lounge area<br/><br/>Firm bed, smell from drains in en suite and inability to turn off heated towel rails which made the bathrooms really hot.



This was our second visit to this accommodation.<br/>Excellent property very clean and close to the local amenities.<br/>Would definitely visit again in the future.



The apartment was finished to a high standard very clean well equipped quiet location<br/><br/>The heating was on timers and set temperature so some of the day the apartment was cold.<br/>Also the en suite drains were smelling awful we could not use it. We informed the company running the apartment on the first day and no one can to sort it.<br/>Also far to many emails with repeated info and ordering us to leave on time or we would extra charges. Also not being able to go into the apartment until 16.00 and having to leave by 10.00 we lost a day off our stay. Most other places we stay at its in from 14.00 and leave by 12.00.



A loverly clean and well located apartment. Will definitely be booking again.



Great apartment with a gorgeous view over the sea. The accommodation was clean, tidy and comfortable. Would highly recommend.



Excellent accommodation.<br/>Very good location. Beautiful sea views. <br/>Fantastic.



fabulous place, immaculately clear with a fabulous location.



Great location with a sea view and easy access to the town and coastal walks. The apartment was modern, clean and comfortable.<br/><br/>We were disappointed with a lack of basic essentials including a shortage of toilet rolls and bin bags, no dishwasher tablets and no cafeteria to make coffee. During our stay an unpleasant drain smell also emerged from the en suite shower.



We actually managed to get into the apartment a bit earlier, so that was helpful, keys were in key box. Apartment was very nice, newly furnished, luxurious with comfy huge beds, all very quiet and relaxing, sea view amazing. Short walk to sea front or down to the harbour. Would definitely stay here again.<br/><br/>We were given a 2 days scratch card for parking but we stayed for 3 days, it would have been nice not to have to move the car somewhere else for the last 3rd night. <br/> <br/>A few more glasses would be helpful, we had to keep washing them and reuse.



Fabulous place great location soured a bit with the ??£60 cleaning fee in a 2 bed flat for a few nights.<br/>The £25 insurance fee for a waiver imposed by Host & Stay after booking or you ain't getting check in details <br/>The non attendance of a maintenance man to sort out the stuck bath plug or the dead remote battery's.<br/>The freezing atmosphere with all heaters turned off on the 16.00 (half day gone) earliest check in



What an amazing place! Perfect location. Clean, homely feel. Had everything we needed for our stay. Access for the key at check in was really easy and simple. The whole apartment has been finished to a high standard. The sea view was a spectacular bonus. Would definitely recommend.



Really nice accommodation with beautiful views and modern amenities. Just a shame some of our towels were dirty and no hand wash in the bathrooms. Apart from that I would deffo recommend.



Great stay. 100% would return.



Great apartment and a very good location!



Lovely apartment in a great location. The apartment was spotlessly clean and really comfortable, the Christmas tree and subtle decorations were a nice festive touch. It’s location was perfect for exploring everything Whitby had to offer and the parking scratch card was an added bonus, meaning we could park directly outside. Would definitely choose to stay again if visiting Whitby.



Lovely flat with views of the sea on the crescent on the West Cliff. Nice and quiet with big rooms. Comfy beds and well stocked kitchen area. Great access to main area of Whitby. Perfect for a weekend getaway!

Adele Whorton


Stayed at The Connell for a long weekend away. This apartment was first class with everything thought about for a relaxing stay. The rooms were clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Connell and will most definitely be returning.

Marcia P., Wakefield West Yorkshire


High Spec apartment that was spacious and very clean. Showers powerful and hot. Beds very comfortable. The apart is front line on the crescent with lovely sea views and great for people watching. In a lovely quiet part of whitby.<br>Couple of tiny issues fire alarm was activated and we evacuated building not sure of procedure for this.



Great property furnished to a high standard. No problems and would stay again.



Lovely place, great location.



The location was perfect with fantastic views. Spotless apartment with quality fittings. Super comfy beds. Great shower with Bluetooth speaker mirrors! Great communication from hosts and very easy to access keys. Car park only a few yards away at £9 for 24hrs.<br/><br/>The Wifi was slow but only really affected our young son with his tablet.



location, and everything that you want from home in the apartment<br/><br/>cushions on the sofa, they were feathered and the spine of the feather would protrude out of the cushion and constantly prick you, very uncomfortable



Perfect location for us , beautiful sea view , <br/>in a lovely building , quiet area . <br/>The apartment is stylish and comfortable<br/><br/>The Venetian blind was damaged in the bedroom when we arrived , so I reported it as it requests you to report anything that isn’t right



view from the property<br/><br/>bed configuration not as I booked only 1toilet roll per bathroom



Excellent break superb property.<br/>It is in a great location close to the town centre and also the beach.<br/>Plenty of parking outside the property <br/>Will be definitely booking again



Beautiful stay. Fab beds. Wi-Fi could be better



Great location



Very modern Apartment. Spotless. Loved the ensuite bathroom. Ideal for my teenage son. Excellent Location and beautiful view. Great having the little balcony to sit out.



The internet was VERY SLOW.



very modern clean ideal position<br/><br/>i didn’t dislike anything <br/>t



Brilliant location and really nicely finished. Very modern finish but old building so sound proofing is ?





Excellent location. Very stylish and comfortable and the lift was a big bonus. Fantastic view and so nice that you can step out on the balcony. Highly recommended.<br/><br/>The fact that there is not an allocated parking and that we had to pay for long stay parking. Even though there was a parking disc to use for two days of our stay, there was never any parking available and we had to use the long stay parking. It did help that this parking lot is quite close to the apartment.





The apartment is in a great position looking out to sea and is within walking distance of the beach, and other attractions.<br/>It is very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay with our 2 grandchildren.



Fabulous location, beautiful flat. Clean and comfortable. Hosts responded to emails promptly. Well equipped, didn't skint on the basics like toilet rolls. Even left milk in fridge. All excellent.<br/><br/>The admin prior to arriving was a bit faffy (having to do photo verification etc with Host & Stay). We got wrong information about car parking - told there was no scratch card available, so we paid £9 for 24 hours parking at public car park. When we got inside, found scratch cards waiting. Good to have them, but would have been nice to know before coming! <br/> <br/>A few tiny things in the flat - sash window quite hard to close, shelf missing in fridge. Nothing significant - it's a lovely place!



Die Lage mit direktem Blick auf das Meer (Nordsee) war toll. Das Apartment war direkt im Zentrum von Whitby, sodass man alles fussläufig sehr gut erreichen konnte. Das Apartment war modern und ansprechend eingerichtet, und die Betten super bequem. Das Apartment war sehr geräumig, mit 2 Schlafzimmer und 2 modernen und sauberen Bädern. Die Schlafzimmer sind ruhig zur Gasse hin gelegen. Die moderne und nagelneu eingerichtete Wohnung war sehr komfortabel.<br/><br/>Der Duschabfluss im Bad verströmte einen unangenehmen Geruch, das kann man aber sicher reparieren. Parken war nur mit einem Parkschein möglich. Dieser wird vom Gastgeber gestellt. Leider war unserer aber nur für 2 Tage (inklusive 2 Übernachtungen) gültig, wir hatten aber das Apartment für 4 Tage (3 Übernachtungen) gebucht. So mussten wir am vorletzten Tag noch einen alternativen Parkplatz in der Nähe suchen, der uns dann leider auch noch extra gekostet hat (10 Pfund).





The room is exceptional with all brand new furnishings.



Fabulous property



A fantastic view from the property and could not fault the decor. Every thing was excellent and in working order. The bed was comfortable and I would highly recommend this property to stay as it is close to the beach and town.



Everything, it was outstanding.<br/><br/>Nothing



Superb apartment. Very spacious, brand new and modern in a superb location.<br/>The views over the sea are an added bonus. We traveled with another couple and found there was plenty of room - and we had our own bathrooms.<br/>We love Whitby and visit regularly. Best accomodation we've stayed in.<br/><br/>There was no ironing board, adding one would be very helpful for guests <br/><br/>10am check out we found quite early. 11am would be better.



Clear instruction



Brilliant location overlooking the sea. Modern decor, tastefully furnished. Huge beds. Great view from lounge. Parking nearby. Less than 15 minute walk into town.<br/><br/>Nothing
