Location<br/><br/>It was unclean, bins not emptied, nuts left on the floor, holes In the bedding, mould in two showers, carpet have not been hoovered, ashtrays full of cigarettes, stick substance on the sofa. We had to fully clean the property on arrive to use it. <br/><br/>There was No blind in the lounge so unable to sit on the sofa due to the sun. There was lots of noice from the pub and house next door. The front door is not safe for kids as they can turn the lock and get out it’s not a key lock <br/><br/>I rang to complain with no answer, I emailed a<br/>Complaint which took well over 24 house and they offered me a cleaner at 5pm the night before leaving. I I was asked to submit a complaint via email which I did, I was then asked to submit a the same information on a complaint form, meaning my complaint had been submitted via phone, messaging service email<br/>And a complaint form. It is not over a month since we have been and my complaint has not been resolved and I am not getting a response to me email sent over a week ago. <br/><br/>When paying over £200+ a night is not the condition or service I expect to receive.





Had aboslutly everything we could possibly need.



The location was perfect and our view from the townhouse was fantastic. The kitchen had all amenities needed.<br/><br/>Could have done with an extra key because we were 4 adults and a child who wanted to be more flexible. Some shower caddys would be useful for guests to store their toiletries. One of the showers had a notice not to shower for long as drainage slow which needs attention.



Spacious kitchen/dining table and sitting room with balcony big enough for 8 people.<br/><br/>Cafetiere was broken! Plus I couldn't find a sieve nor colander. <br/>No shelf in bathroom which was a pain for toothbrush n toothpaste n deodorant etc etc.<br/>Elaborate bathroom sink.<br/>Garage quite a neat fit for my car.





Location<br/><br/>The noise was constant from outside.



We had a great stay. The house was comfortable, beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. The view from the living room and the front bedroom was fantastic! The house was in a great location and very close to the town.<br/><br/>Even with the heating off, the house was very warm, particularly in the twin room. It would be good to be able to open the skylight or have the use of a fan. <br/><br/>Another toilet roll in the main bathroom please as it is shared between 4 people .





the house was beautiful great location clean tidy couldn't fault anything would definitely recommend and we would definitely stay again bonus there's a pub right next door ?



Location perfect, comfort perfect, house perfect.



Great location with beautiful view of the bay. High quality specs and communication was great. Would be happy to stay here again :)



Lovely place everything was great until we realised the heating wasn’t working and reading the guest book they knew about it as the previous guests the week before told them. All in all we would return great location and lovely views of the harbour.



Location was excellent & the property was fabulous<br/><br/>Nothing





Location was fabulous and the actual apartment was amazing !<br/><br/>Nothing



Excellent location. Beautifully presented apartment, lots of space for a party of 6 adults. Well equipped kitchen<br/><br/>Disappointed that the main bathroom shower was not working.



Location and view





Such a lovely house. Close to everything you need and places to see. Very clean. Great views!



Lovely place and a great location overlooking the estuary. Very modern with great facilities and all the mod-cons. Would recommend it highly.



Brilliant view of harbour spent many hours with doors open looking out. Location fantastic. House bri?iant. Recommend 10 out of 10<br/><br/>Everything. Such a well equiped and modern up to date apartment with top notch furniture and fittings <br/>Loved it loved it . Roomy so u could get away from others for some down time if needed <br/>.



Lovely, modern house, has everything you need. Balcony is great, lovely views. Beds very comfortable. Very close to amenities.<br/><br/>3 storeys not really suitable for anyone not used to stairs. A bit too close to the pub next door, could get noisey. Also only 1 parking space for a place that sleeps 8 is not great.



The location is great, just a short walk from the restaurants, cafes, shops and beach, but far enough away that it is quiet in the evenings. Would definitely return!



Rodent problem



Excellent stay. Fantastic balcony and view. Finishings of the apartment are outstanding and the location is great.<br/>Only improvements that I could suggest are earlier check in then 4pm and later check out then 10am



Amazing stay with friends and children. Will definitely visit again!



Yes<br/><br/>Location and the set up.



The location, decor and facilities were great<br/><br/>We found some previous families things in a drawer, like razors toiletries etc <br/>Also had to call someone out to sort something out quite urgent, they were very good also a chair leg was broken, we saw this on day 1 and never used it







Fantastic location



Very good position, everything in working order.<br/>Especially liked the balcony.<br/><br/>Showers, grouting, required replacing, a little mould in the shower.







Fantastic location in Whitby with fabulous views over the harbour and a lovely balcony to sit and watch the world go by.<br/><br/>The booking system was a huge hassle in terms of trying pay the deposit and then wait a considerable period of time to get it back.



From the moment we arrived we just could not fault a ything about the property<br/><br/>Have to say l was disappointed in trying to talk to someone about concerns l had prior to my visit very disappointing and persona7l don't consider texts as personal contact and please don't pre judge my response as an age thing as l have had 40 years in business development so have first hand experience in customer service



A little hidden treasure. <br/>Perfect location. The house itself is amazing. Comfortable, fantastic layout, and great for a family getaway.



Superb house, excellent facilities. View amazing



very modern and clean . good location



Good apartment



Amazing place can’t wait to go back



Great location and good size property with all amenities<br/><br/>The house wasn’t as clean as expected windows very dirty work surfaces not clean carpets needed hoovering! Got charged twice for holiday which took an hour of phone calls to sort while away!



Comfortable stay, spacious, great location<br/><br/>Only problem was hot water tap on the bath didn't work so was unable to bath my young children



Excellent property in a beautiful setting with great views. Host was great with communication and offered a fantastic guide book for property and location.



The Townhouse offered luxury accommodation for our recent stay with friends. Beautifully equipped with quality equipment and beautiful home wares and artwork. We will definitely be back next year



Perfect location, immaculate property, wonderful views.<br/><br/>Nothing, it was perfect



Fantastic apartment, very nicely decorated and we had a lovely stay. Plenty of kitchen facilities, rooms were all lovely. Garage very handy but you can also park for free on the street opposite (just be careful though as when you get further up near the Fleece Pub the on street parking is chargeable). Easy short walk into Whitby with plenty to do and see. It’s not obvious from the property description but 2 of the double bedrooms are en-suite with a family bathroom serving the other double bedroom and twin room. 2 of the double beds are also very very firm so we didn’t sleep well at all but ok if you like a firm mattress. But that didn’t spoil our stay and we would certainly rebook the same property again.<br/><br/>Firm mattresses



The property was so lovely and spacious the beds were very comfortable so much so I went today and brought the pillows and duvets they use! The company are very good and helpful and manage the booking really well. There is a garage its quite tight but we got our evoque in fine. There was lovely touches like nice toiletries and tea and coffee avaliable when we got there.<br/><br/>Doorbell didn't work so we had to watch out for our takeaway as living room on 3rd floor so wouldn't hear a knock



the space the amenities were amazing. we didn’t realise the property was that big. the view of Whitby harbour was fantastic and the location made it easy to walk into town.<br/><br/>word of warning if you are bringing a big car it may not fit in the garage our mini clubman only just squeezed in



Fantastic location. Parking space was a good addition. Great views of the harbour.<br/><br/>Hot water tap in bath didn't work, freezer was broken.





Lovely apartment with great views and plenty of space. There is a garage for parking one car which is very useful in Whitby, however the space is tight so would check with host if you have a large car.



Excellent location, lovely accomodation,hard pressed to find anything more convenient with excellent view, very clean with good facilities.we will definitely be back to this accomodation.<br/><br/>Parking could be a problem if More than one car.





location and bedrooms with 3 bathrooms<br/><br/>nothing





Outstanding property and fantastic location.



Beautiful accommodation, fantastic location.



Views and location. Good beds.<br/><br/>1. Two bedrooms have windows that cannot be opened, no ventilation either. <br/>2. Top floor living room is very nice, with fantastic views, however, it gets unbearable hot in summer due to the large window front. Blinds or curtains would be a good idea to keep the heat out (it was more than 50 degrees in the room!) <br/>3. Kitchen utensils: one blunt bread knife- could do with a few paring knives to cut fruit and vegetables. Also only one wooden spoon- to cook a meal for up to 8 people, not very practical! <br/>4. Bin in one bedroom had not been emptied, kitchen bin was filthy and windows had a lot of finger prints on....



We had the most amazing time. Whitby is beautiful! The Townhouse was as luxurious as the photos portrayed...It was wonderful especially the living room area with the balcony and amazing view of the harbour. It was so spacious and the perfect setting to help celebrate our moms 70th! I have a feeling we will be back!



Great place and location to stay , the place was spotless. Amazing communication from the hosts. The only thing I would note is the car garage is very small and large cars would struggle to park in there.



Brilliant apartment, very modern and had everything we needed. Perfect location<br/><br/>Garage was a bit on the small side<br/>Went on a really hot couple of days so maybe a couple of fans would of come in handy



Fab house



We checked in at 3pm and we had to be out at 10am not good value for money you pay for 24 hours and they want you out 5 hrs early! NOT HAPPY AT ALL LOCATION AMAZING Communication not so good was waiting over 13 hrs for the host to get bk to us in how to use the cooker as it was an induction hob. At the end of it all I watched a YouTube video to help me use the cooker. We probably would have still been waiting.Will be staying in Whitby but not at the town house as our experience was not so good.



this apartment is fab <br/>the views are amazing<br/><br/>the bedrooms were hot in the early mornings



What a beautiful place, the views and location are the best and a pub a stones throw away too which was nice & quiet on a night. Couldn’t fault the townhouse and will definitely stay again.



Amazing , WOW factor , great place , great location , worth getting up at 6am and just look at the harbour . The town house is better than the pictures show , love our stay



This property is in a fabulous location overlooking the harbour. We particularly enjoyed the balcony as the weather was glorious during our visit. We felt like we were abroad, which was fantastic!<br/>A few reviews have mentioned the pub next door being noisy but we didn’t find that at all. <br/>Great to be able to park in the garage and this leads directly into the property so fab for unpacking. <br/>The decor and furnishings are really top notch and the beds super comfortable. <br/>We had a really great family time away and I would definitely book again with host and stay.



Wow- what a fab place! The views from the top floor living area were wonderful, and it was even nicer inside than it looked on the pictures. We were five adults and it felt spacious and relaxing to spend time in- it sleeps eight though, and that might feel a little busy in the living area. Communication was great and check in was super easy. It was spotlessly clean.<br/>The location is great, really easy access to everything in Whitby, but without feeling like you are right in the midst of the tourism. <br/>Our only regret is we weren’t staying for longer!



Perfect location, spotless clean well equipped property. Will definitely be back.



Super property, we all thoroughly enjoyed stying there for a weekend. Everything worked, the property was immaculately clean and spacious, great location. Absolutely recommend.



We had a fantastic stay in a well appointed house with an amazing view of the harbour and beyond. <br/>It was big enough for our large party to fit into without feeling too cramped. The bedrooms were comfortable with lovely bed linen and towels. The bathrooms had great showers. It was very clean. We will definitely return.



An excellent rental. Lovely modern house in a great location. Highly recommended!



A great place to stay in Whitby. Brilliant location next to the water and easy to walk into the enter if town. The house was spotless, views across the harbour stunning and accommodation spacious and well laid out. Would definitely recommend.



Lovely house, everything you could possibly need available.<br/>Good location, easy access to town, beach , buses, trains etc.<br/>We all enjoyed our first visit to Whitby and the accommodation certainly helped. <br/>We did recommend it to people we met and would certainly recommend it to friends.



It was a lovely apartment with fantastic views of the harbour on the 3rd floor living/kitchen area. Location was excellent, it was only a 10 minute walk over the bridge on to the other side of the harbour where all the restaurants and shops were. The apartment was very well equipped and we were really impressed. All the basics were there, including kitchen essentials - oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee, cutlery, pots pans etc, even measuring spoons and peelers, which was very handy as we cooked a few times. Our only negatives would be cleanliness of the bedding - we found a couple of stains and hair etc but once communicated, it was sorted promptly. The bin located in the kitchen cupboards wasn’t cleaned properly as there was a strong odour when we opened it. We resorted to spraying it and then buying a cheap plastic bin to use outside. The wifi could be better as the signal strength was poor at times and we would have to connect our phones to 4G instead and sometimes struggled to load and stream, e.g Netflix. Overall, it was very comfortable and the apartment is decorated to a high standard. We had a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend staying here, just a few little niggles that prevented it from being a 5.



Very nice house just outside the town centre with great views over the estuary



A fantastic family stay. Very clean, beautiful views and perfect location. Would highly recommend.



Excellent location and views from the top floor lounge and balcony are great. Would stay here again. Perfect for family or a group of friends.



The home and location were both beautiful, even better than the pictures. 5 minute walk from the beach and boat rides. Lots of lovely restaurants and bars nearby. If you’re a light sleeper i would recommend packing yourself some ear plugs, nosy pub next door and walls very thin but other than that we had an amazing stay.
