Modern, new, clean<br/>Nothing



Fabulous location, lovely views and great decor, also dog friendly!<br/>There are no curtains in the bedroom, just Venetian blinds which do not block out the light. Directly outside the bedroom on the street are hung festoons which lit up the room throughout the night. Sadly we had a very bad nights sleep because of it. I’d recommend bringing eye masks for future stays and ear plugs as the street is a little noisy. We were gutted as the room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. <br/>Outside there is a private deck but this wasn’t useable for us as it was covered in bird poo. <br/>I think overall we’d love to come back but a few tweaks need to be made for guests comfort. <br/>Deck mustn’t have been cleaned for a long time- perhaps add this to the cleaning rota when changing rooms ready for guests. <br/>Curtains needed on the rooms front door as I felt rather exposed in my towel walking past it. <br/>Curtains needed in the bedroom as mentioned above. <br/>A hook on the bathroom door would be great for hanging used clothes when showering. I didn’t want to get clothes wet on the floor.



Lovely clean modern apartment<br/>Nothing



Apartment was absolutely spotless. Had everything we needed and more! Bathroom was clean and all worked perfectly. Living room was comfortable as was the bed. Location was perfect, 2 minutes from the front and lots of cafes, pubs and shops near by. Can't wait to go back!



Stylish accomodation finished to a high standard. Very clean, comfortable and warm. We were very surprised at the quality as it is a dog friendly apartment as sometimes dog friendly accomodation can be less high end. Located in a very secure and quiet area whilst at the same time very central to all amenities. I would highly recommend this apartment and hope to re-book here again.






Lovely little apartment, will definitely be visiting again in summer and will try to get this cute place again! Exactly as stated in the listing so was lovely. Only thing to comment on is with it being January we presumed that the heating may have been put on before our arrival however it wasn’t which was a tad disappointing. But nothing else at all comes to mind other than a beautiful little get away!



Had a lovely stay, very nice, host was very responsive (good communication)



Beautiful apartment in the heart of Whitby. Did not disappoint on any level.



Great location near to everything. Everything brand new. Beds really comfy and lovely bedding. Well equipped. Very modern. Would definitely stay here again, can't wait to come back.<br/>Just a couple of minor things. Although the settee was beautiful and modern it wasn't very comfy to snuggle on after a lovely walk round Whitby. Also a bigger door mat needed as we didn't have good weather and trying to manage getting our shoes off with a wet dog without standing on the new cream carpets was a bit difficult.



Well appointed apartment, just the ticket for a weekend away
