Property Details

The Space
With high ceilings and tall windows, you’ll be welcomed into a bright and airy space. The kitchen is well equipped - there is a microwave, toaster, kettle, oven, fridge and washing machine so you’ll have everything you need for your self-catering break by the sea.

The open plan dining and living area is eclectic and quirky. You can enjoy meals at the cosy dining table, which features transparent Perspex dining chairs. Relax on the teal blue, velvet sofa whilst watching the flat-screen TV or watch the world go by from the mustard yellow armchair. There is also a desk space so you can work from your laptop easily.

In the bedroom, you’ll find a comfy, Super King bed with luxury bedding and plush cushions. The same original style flows through to this room as it features a wire basket style bedside table and quirky monkey lamp.

The bathroom is a clean and modern space with a large walk in shower.

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
Set on the West side of Whitby, The Funky Robin is just a short 10-minute walk into the centre of town. Head to Pier Road and you’ll find cosy pubs, fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants. Continue along the lively road until you reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts. At the other end of Pier Road, you’ll notice the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk.

Over the bridge, you’ll find yourself on the East bank which is full of narrow medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and fish restaurants. Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary. You can also discover the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’.

Step outside of Whitby and you’ll uncover a haven of woodland and moorland. Whitby forms part of the North York Moors National Park so it’s the perfect place for long walks.

Getting Around
The centre of Whitby is a short ten-minute walk from The Funky Robin.

Whitby train station is half a mile away so villages and towns along the North Yorkshire coast can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Whitby. Hop on the X4 and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes. The X93 travels along the coast to Scarborough. The 95 route features plenty of quaint villages, such as Grosmont and Lealholm.

Rooms are super big, cosy and the beds are huge and comfortable. Very homely and great location, five min walk from beach.<br/><br/>No handrail in or outside the flat, the stairs leading to the flat are really steep so if had mobility issues with no handrail would be quite tricky. The smell from shower once finished wasn't pleasant at all. The middle blind in the sitting room didn't wind open and scaffolding / works around the building, thankfully no workmen in the morning as over the weekend.

Sharon

The location was good, bedroom & settee was comfortable<br/><br/>We were disappointed with the extra cost, not made aware of when we booked <br/><br/>A light was needed in the hallway for when you returned in the evening, <br/>There was a bad drain smell coming from the on suite . Damp areas around the windows that should have been addressed

Placed perfectly out of town but within walking distance of pubs, restaurants etc.

Very good location, in walking distance of the beach and Whitby centre. It is a quiet area in the evening. The large bed was comfortable.<br/><br/>No potato masher, but we survived lol

Andrew

Cosy<br/><br/>No way of having fresh hair in the bedroom only a fire escape door , which obviously can't leave it open ,shower head was full of black mould ,and the shower tray same ?

Brilliant location, excellent parking provision with parking permit. Easy access to the flat, was clean and tidy. Bed was huge and pretty comfy, WiFi is good and the TV channel availability is good. The yellow chair is super comfy. Plenty of space for 2 people.<br/><br/>Terrible deposit system where you have to pay £10 admin fee for the privilege of them holding £250 on your card for a week OR a scandalous option of £25 waiver to cover you for any damage. That is awful and would put me off booking again. Consider these additions when booking vs a hotel or other options! <br/><br/>The flat needs a few more utensils in the kitchen. We had no washing up liquid or sponge so had to make do despite asking for some to be provided. Hot water in the shower was luke warm and on checking the boiler the pressure was on the floor so nobody had checked this. Overall the flat was nice enough but lacks a coziness. Some big pictures of painted colour on the wall would go a long way. Needs a curtain not just a blind on the door in the bedroom as there is a draft and some curtains in the lounge too would help, as woild a rug. We paid £100 per night and would have expected something a little more homely.

Location was very near to local amenities.<br/><br/>Apart from wine glasses, there was only one glass, we had to buy one. The 2nd draw down in the kitchen is broken,everything fell off the back. A washing up bowl and a couple of coat hooks would have been useful and the bathroom window wouldn't open.

Jayne

Lovely clean and nicely decorated the location at great just a few mins walk to local pubs and front<br/><br/>The parking wasn’t great , couldn’t get a space to park so put my blue disabled badge up and parked , didn’t realised there was parking permits on the table and I ended up getting a parking ticket ,

Peter

A lovely property in a central location. Clean, comfortable and ideal for what we needed.<br/><br/>We were asked to pay a £25 damage waiver insurance or refundable sum of £250 fee against damage by direct message after paying for the rental. This took the edge off the booking and the company should have been upfront about this additional payment at the booking stage. I have not had this through Booking.com before

John

15/11/2023

Having extra charges of insurance of £25 before you could your key was released which was not mentioned until the balance had been paid. Never had this before on Booking.com

The Funky Robin is a comfortable & very well located apartment in Whitby - we'd be happy to stay again when visiting the town.

Sara

05/10/2023

Was in a good location for the sea front.<br/><br/>We had trouble getting parked and had to park miles away and walk. Then we couldn’t get the key lock to open. The property had a funny smell when we got there and there was stained furniture, peeling damp on the walls near the window. If you used the sink in the kitchen then a horrible smell came through the bathroom. We ended up leaving early due to the horrible smell. <br/><br/>The bathroom needed tlc. The shower was mouldy but worked ok. <br/><br/>Also, once I’d booked the apartment I was told I’d have to pay a £25 non refundable accidental damage deposit. Outrageous for how much time we actually stayed in the apartment. <br/><br/>We won’t be staying there again.

Stewart

Exactly as stated, good location, great appartment. Perfect for what we needed.

Eve

08/09/2023

We very much enjoyed our stay at this accommodation. We had a couple small things that meant we didn’t feel comfortable giving 5 stars. Overall the location, check in and decor were great. We were a little disappointed that the bed is described as king or queen sized but it is actually two singles pushed together so of course, we didn’t overly love having a hard seam going straight down the middle of it. We also noticed the cleanliness wasn’t amazing with sticky cup rings on the small coffee tables in the living area and a pretty dusty mirror - which are things we’d assume should be cleaned after every stay. As other reviews have mentioned, the grouting in the bathroom could be redone too. Despite all this we had a great time here and the water pressure in the shower is to die for. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Lorna

07/09/2023

Wonderfully comfortable bed, great location, lovely bright and light apartment. Full cooking and washing facilities available, good shower and en suite bathroom. Due to its excellent location parking is scarce, parking pass in the W zone is provided but you may have to park on a pay car park just because it's so busy. There is a big screen TV but could not do any streaming on it, no big deal when you've got Whitby on your doorstep. We plugged a usb stick in the TV with some spooky films on.

Linda

02/09/2023

It was clean and well decorated. It was just what we needed.<br/><br/>I can’t think of any complaints. Although the pictures on the wall were a bit rubbish

Bryony

26/08/2023

This space is in an ideal location in beautiful Whitby, it was a very comfortable stay and the accommodation had everything you’d need, we are looking forward to returning!

Anita

17/08/2023

Location, kitchen well equipped, washing machine<br/><br/>Having to wait for parking permit - was only given a 2 day permit for a 3 day stay. Permit was promised to be dropped off, but we had to wait and was over the time limit when arrived, so could have been ticketed. We could have done without this stress. An H&S maintenance man who was passing while we were waiting helped by contacting the office on our behalf - he was very helpful, however <br/>Also, don't agree with the damage deposit of £250 which was taken out of my credit card 11 days before stay and not refunded until a week after return - a small marker could have been put on my credit card, eg £1 rather than the £250. Very uneasy knowing whether we would be charged for some existing 'damage'. This has put me off using Host and Stay in the future.

Julie

14/08/2023

Very well equipped and lovely and clean location just perfect

Mark

12/08/2023

The breakfast wasn't provided. The bed was lovely and on the whole it was well equipped.<br/><br/>The stairs had no banister rail, someone had obviously grabbed the light to steady themselves as it was loose. A banister on the second flight was missing probably because someone had grabbed it to stop from falling. This is dangerous. <br/>There was poo in the loo brush container which wasn't nice. <br/>There was noise fromthe above flat until 1.00am which kept us awake one night. Perhaps it could be suggested that people are quieter after 11.00. <br/>The glasses were mismatched and not really the right size.

Leila

11/08/2023

Booked last minute. Good location only a few minutes from the shops, cafes and beach. We managed to park on the street opposite using the parking ticket provided which was handy. <br/>Locating and checking in via the lock box was all simple. <br/>Host & Stay took a £250 deposit which I felt was a bit steep for a one night stay. They then charged an extra (non refundable) £10 to take the deposit (on top of what we had already paid through Airbnb). <br/>Felt the cleaning could have been better as there were bits on the carpet and crumbs in the kitchen. <br/>The shower also needs re-grouting as it was stained brown which was quite off putting.

Fiona

03/08/2023

Location<br/><br/>The additional indemnity charge no matter how short the stay. Cleanliness, could be better as cobwebs etc.

Marilyn

01/08/2023

Deposit required for any damage either via credit card or £25 insurance which have never paid before. Might be better to mention this prior to booking as adds to the cost if you choose the latter.

The flat itself was very nice and well situated for the sea front. Pity it wasn't cleaned and up to its best !<br/><br/>It wasn't cleaned when we arrived.We were asked to come back in an hour, so they could have the cleaner come in, which we then did.<br/><br/> Upon return to the flat, the housekeeper was still there , only room shed cleaned was the bathroom. She had no clean bedding for the bed and the flat was stinking of rotten eggs eminating from the bathroom.<br/><br/> We called host and stay so see if we could stay elsewhere, all they could offer was to send a technician to see what the problem was. It was almost 6pm, we weren't happy with the situation at this point so ended up leaving and driving all the way back to Lincolnshire. <br/><br/>I called Host and stay for a refund, which they refused. They eventually refunded £60 because they hadn't had to clean the flat after our booking. Laughable !!!

Conveniently located, well equipped flat. The yard at the front could do with a little TLC, but the flat itself was clean and cosy.

Excellent accommodation. Clean and spacious. Brilliant,quiet location<br/><br/>Only downside was the parking but it's Whitby after all. As is wide enough to safely unload your luggage though.

Susan

21/05/2023

Roomy comfortable bed<br/><br/>The shower tiles needed a bit of attention all looked a bit grubby Not helped by the fact that it took us 2 days to locate the switch for the extractor fan and I couldn’t reach it No door mat we were on a walking holiday and wearing boots

Martin

14/05/2023

Parking was sparse but we managed to find a space a minutes walk away. Once in the apartment, parking scratch cards were on the table which we filled in and gave us free parking until checkout day. Just around the corner was the coastal walk and at the bottom of the road was the lovely shops and cafes on each side of cobbled streets making their way to the harbour.<br/>The apartment was very clean although a little more attention to the grout in the shower wouldn’t go a miss. Having said that the shower was excellent with good water pressure and constant temperature. The bed was superbly comfortable and linen crisp, white cotton. The kitchen facilities were good with plenty of equipment for a decent stay. Neighbours were reasonably quiet but doors and creaky floors above could be a problem if other guests were noisy. All in all a great stay and we’d book again.

Funky Robin is a spacious, bright and well-equipped flat that's an easy walk to Whitby's attractions. Do bear in mind when looking for Hudson Street on arrival that the north side of Hudson Street is called Abbey Terrace. It is a peculiarity of Whitby that a few streets have two names, one on each side. Locals should be able to explain why

Julie

Love the location, decor, and soft furnishings are great. Bed huge and very comfortable.<br/><br/>No window in the bedroom and unable to regulate the room temperature.

Apartment is in a good location and was nice and clean, the Host & Stay instructions were clear and check in was easy. Host & Stay were very responsive to any questions we had. There was no parking scratch card in the apartment when we arrived so we had to use one of the local pay and display car parks. We did get a ticket the following day to use. We enjoyed our stay and Whitby is a great place to stay. <br/>.

Jo-anne

Light, comfortable, well equipped, only short walk to town, beach and harbour.<br/><br/>There was a strange smell coming from the drains in the bathroom. Once we worked out where it was coming from, we reported it and it was attends to the next day

Great location for shops bars restaurants and views<br/><br/>We had to pay a £250 damage deposit in addition to the cost of the apartment, and we weren't aware of this before we booked. <br/>This seemed over the top for a 2 night weekend away for a couple and I've never had to pay a deposit like this before when booking with Booking.com. We also had to wait 2-3 weeks before getting our deposit back minus £10 admin fee.

Location of property short walk into Whitby. Bed large and very comfortable. Apartment spacious. Kitchen adequate had everything you would need.<br/><br/>We were on first floor but had noisy people arrive upstairs and the sound of moving furniture was very loud and travelled down. <br/>The toilet seat was loose and the boiler was positioned right above the toilet making it a little cramped. The shower was good but nowhere to put soap/shampoo etc other than the floor. <br/>A lot of additional excessive information required as part of the booking process even for a two night stay.

No Breakfast included, but there was tea, coffee and a pint of milk which was a nice touch. The location was good, however would be hard for someone with mobility issues.<br/><br/>I thought the bathroom was a bit in need of a refurbish. the radiator pipes were very dusty and when standing up from the toilet it was easy to bang your head.

Funky Robin is a nicely furnished flat in the centre of the town, just a few minutes walk from the clifftop and harbour. You are able to park the car and walk everywhere. The flat is light, clean and well equipped and even with all the hot weather pleasantly cool.

easy to find property checked in ok keys in lock box the flat was nice and clean and comfortable everything you need for a short stay in Whitby good shower and comfortable bed also kitchen facilities were good<br/><br/>not really much not to like apart from last night noise from the flat above didn’t get a good sleep could here every word and running about floor till 1.30am but a common problem in flats,also mission impossible to find a parking place anywhere near the property

Very comfortable, good position, everything you need in the apartment, very spacious, at busy times the parking is a nightmare!<br/><br/>Certain things in the apartment weren’t particularly clean, the grout between the tiles in the shower could do with a scrub, also the bathroom floor! The kitchen wasn’t as clean as it should be.

The Funky Robin is a lovely apartment, really clean & in a great location, however, our 1 night stay was not so smooth.<br/><br/>Firstly in the communication sent prior to our arrival regarding check-in (the info is informative & pretty extensive), it was noted that parking is a problem & W zone parking is available for guests, if you have a scratch card, which the apartment provides on check-in.<br/><br/>On our arrival, there was no parking card, so we waited for around an hour for Housekeeping to drop one around. <br/><br/>The second issue was that there was no hot water. Having someone come out to check the thermostat would have incurred a fee.<br/><br/>The apartment management advised that the issue was to do with the thermostat & talked me through the settings on the thermostat with the promise that the water would be hot when we returned from dinner. Unfortunately, it wasn't.<br/><br/>We were in the apartment for around 18 hours. 2 of those hours was spent trying to address the above issues.<br/><br/>I have lodged a complaint with Host & Stay & am currently waiting for a response. It’s been almost 2 weeks.

The location.<br/><br/>The toilet seat was a little wobbly!!

Brian

26/06/2022

Not spplicable<br/><br/>My wife suffered a stroke a few years ago and was anxious climbing the stairs and walking down them because there was no hand rail on either side of the stairs up to the flat Also the outside steps up to the front door do not have a hand rail and these steps are quite steep and are probably slippery when wet.Are Health and Safety aware of this and has a Risk Assessment been carried out?

Very comfortable with all necessary facilities.<br/><br/>I didn't like being pressured to complete the verification information,. I am a DPO and pointed out Superhog wanting driving licence or passport details is excessive.<br/>After reading their privacy policy and what and who they share the details with plus retaining this information for 7 years!! for a 1 night stay is excessive . Please look up details and principles of GDPR. I didn't complete this and maybe something to looking at a different method?

The bed was very comfortable as was the sofa in the lounge. Kitchen adequate, tea coffee and suger although a nice touch not really needed.<br/><br/>Bathroom a little small with the boiler being over tiolet a bit risky. Toilet brush needs replacing. Other than that O.K. Parking near to property a bit hit and miss but not a problem.

Perfectly located less than 5 minutes from the cliff tops and paths down to the beach, and similar distance to Khyber Pass. The flat is comfy and warm, the bedroom is at the back so a very quiet place to sleep, it's a generally quiet road anyway. Very easy self check in and everything was as described. Spacious living area and big comfortable bed, also full sized oven/hob. Highly recommended.

Theresa

26/03/2022

good location<br/><br/>the property is in need of a deep clean, lots of dust everywhere and some kitchen utensils were not clean. very little space to store food in the kitchen and very small work surface area. broken blinds in the living room ( was mentioned in previous reviews so obviously been been broken for a while) boiler cupboard in the bathroom in a dangerous position and bathroom window doesn’t open.

Marian

Very comfy bed. Comfortable in general. Nice and warm. Comfy sofa and chair. Good location.<br/><br/>It was not spotlessly clean. There were crumbs in the cupboards and some surfaces of tables had not been wiped. The poles to open the blinds were broken on two of them. The fridge switch was hidden behind a pile of cups so we did not realise it was not switched on.

everything about the apartment was perfect for us it was lovely and warm beautifully clean the most equipped place we’ve ever stayed and there was a lovely pub and a restaurant called Ditto only a few hundred yards away which we discovered and would’ve never done so without being in this Whitby area we will definitely go again WE CANT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH thank you to the owners Chris and Suzanne from Nottingham

We really enjoyed our stay at the funky robin. The flat was exactly how it was described and photographed and we couldn’t have wished for better amenities. We will definitely hope to return there in the near future.

Lovely decor, great location. <br/>Included parking scratch card. <br/>Good smart TV package.<br/><br/>Cleanliness was poor (lots of dirty dishes) <br/>Toilet seat broken <br/>Fridge smelt like mould <br/>Limescale not cleaned <br/>Bathroom area was tired <br/>Stella Artois can found in bed drawer <br/>Some finishes were a bit cheap. <br/>Expensive for the price paid.

Location was excellent. Loads of internal apartment space. Good quality furniture, shower, bed, kitchen and television. Very clean and communication with host company was excellent.<br/><br/>Hated the involvement of the verification company (Superhog). Totally unnecessary involvement and gave us both a significant negative feeling about staying in the property. Their website would not easily accept verification unless a deposit was paid to them to cover accidental insurance for damage to the property. This demand was refused as it is totally unnecessary. Superhog's involvement makes guests feel insecure when booking and contributed significantly to decreasing our enjoyment of the stay at the facility. We actually nearly cancelled because of the implication that their insurance is required. Get rid of them!

Location, water pressure, the space<br/><br/>The toilet and shower room need repair, the extractor fan didn't work, the boiler housing is to close to the toilet and kept hitting head in the night, the lighting is poor.<br/>Toilet seat and flush are very loose.<br/>No selves to put things on.

We stayed at this lovely well equipped appartment for 4 nights. We were happy with the appartment but the parking is dreadful. We rode around for 2hrs trying to park when we arrived and then had to park on a pay and display. We are senior citizens and parking was included in the price but nowhere to park close to the appartment. However Whitby is a lovely place but in future we would stay where there was allocated parking.

Did not like that we could not park our car when parking was included.

Well located and fair sized flat. The bed and sofa were both very comfortable but the bathroom was disappointing, with shower needing to be rerouted and the toilet seat and hand were loose and the cistern coming away from the wall. Many surfaces were dusty and the grill pan not washed and had cooking fat. Not value for money

A comfortable stay in this lovely, clean, well equipped and well located apartment.

Great location<br/><br/>The only slight issue was the boiler cover being situated almost directly over the toilet, so had to be wary of that, but everything else was good.

Mark

Light, airy and great location. Comfortable beds, great shower, home from home.<br/><br/>As well documented in other reviews, parking with the permit was impossible the first night, and only fortunately managed to park on the second night of our stay. Be prepared to pay for parking, £9 for 24hrs, which is only a 2 minute walk away.

Extremely clean and modern, well decorated. Convenient location. Well looked and all facilities provided. We had a lovely stay.<br/><br/>Nothing

Christine

The flat was spacious for 2.<br/>On Westcliffe so good location if you don’t mind a short steep walk into the centre.<br/>The bedroom was really spacious and very comfy bed.<br/>The building itself is a bit tired and grubby on the stairs up to the flat.<br/>Bit of overhead noise from residents in flat above.<br/>We were on a staycation tour of uk, visiting various places.<br/>The Funky Robin was fine for a place to rest your head.<br/>Having stayed in some lovely cottages along our travels, the Funky Robin was not as nice as expected from the pics.<br/>I think it was expensive for 3 nights, but I guess that’s Whitby.<br/><br/>The price

The Funky Robin is a lovely little flat in a brilliant location with quick and easy access into Whitby and the surrounding area. Its warm, really nicely furnished and very comfy. The host is quick and helpful with comms and whilst we struggled to get WiFi on the first day (which was down to the internet provider), this was quickly fixed. Our stay was also reasonably priced and great in comparison with other flats in the area. Id definitely recommend a stay there if you're looking to explore Whitby and nearby locations like Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes.

Funky Robin was a great find. The place was more than spacious enough for the two of us and I can’t even describe how comfy the sofa was(!!) Great location just one street back from the sea front and lots of kitchen bits and bobs provided which was a nice touch. Monkey lamp in the bedroom a little scary but otherwise tastefully decorated with lots of space to make yourselves at home

Lovely little apartment just a couple of minutes walk from the sea and only 5 minutes to all the restaurants and shops. The location was perfect. Lovely clean and spacious apartment with tea, coffee and milk provided. The place is perfect for two people, I went with my friend for a nice quiet weekend away and we enjoyed our stay. Very easy to check in and good email communication from the hosts regarding check in and out, any COVID requirements and parking instructions. Would stay again.
