“great location”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

I booked this cottage through Cottages4you using a Tesco's voucher - this cottage is owned separately to the other 3 and has bunked beds not single beds plus double bed and has 2 round windows. I thought the place was great - I really felt I was in the heart of Whitby with seagulls soaring by the windows and the Morris Dancers out side. Great views are available of the pier to the front and Kyber pass to the rear. It is next to the beach and I found parking easily and can unload out side too. There was lots of space and lovely furnishings - well equipped and there was a cot and high chair too. I had a look round the other 3 apartments and they were nice too with newer windows but I did like the one I rented - for views and space and character. There was a lovely box of cookies, cake, tea bags and tea towel as a welcome gift and a carton of fresh milk in the fridge.

Room Tip: the apartment I rented was No 4 with round windows and great views

Reviewed 12 September 2012

Made a booking for an apartment in October 2012 and received confirmation to say all booked, gave credit card details to make booking via internet. Nearly 2 weeks later received a further e-mail to say no apartments available. We had made booking for a special occasion and this left us having to try and find somewhere else to stay at short notice. Other places we had considered were no longer available and still trying to find somewhere now. Seems like these apartments are happy to take a booking but if someone else wants longer stay they don't honour original bookings. I wouldn't recommend booking unless you want to be looking for somewhere else soon after.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else that actually makes the booking they confirm.

Reviewed 21 September 2009

We spent a week at the old boatmans shelter apartments in September. There are 4 apts ours was 2 bedroomed. It is in a great location on the sea front, the most lovely views from every room. It was well equiped with kitchen utilities, tv, hi-fi and there are some cds and dvds in the communal hall.
We were with our young baby son and they provided a travel cot complete with bedding and comfy mothercare blankets, plus a good padded high chair and baby changing mat.
There is also a commumnal washer and drier for you to use.
Only negatives are no shower, and windows incredibly hard to open! Plus parking is available on the road opposite the apts howver you wil be damn lucky to get a space!!! And if you get one you willl not want to go out in the car then as you wil never get a space again!!!
Overall a lovely apartment, would recommend.
