“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Stayed for three nights over the New Year. Fab location. Home from home. Everything you needed and more. Managed to park outside for the hour to unload and pack and then found great spot up the road for the 3 days. We've booked again for this year. We were meeting a few of our friends and they were all impressed with the apartment and so jealous.

“Great apartment, excellent value for money”
Reviewed 13 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Oyster apartment is a lovely place to stay that is just right for a couple. Debra was extremely helpful and patient with me whilst booking as it was very last minute. She kept in contact with me until she knew that we had arrived safely and found the apartment, which was lovely. On arrival the apartment was lovely and clean, and the heaters had been on so it was warm, which was great as it was trying to snow outside. The apartment has almost everything that you could want for, although it is missing a washing machine. This was fine for us as we were only staying for a week so we didn't need to wash anything. The bed was lovely and comfortable, and we were pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of white wine waiting for us when we arrived! The location is absolutely perfect, right in the centre of Whitby by the harbour so everything you could need is within walking distance. The view from the living room window is wonderful.

We did, however, have a couple of issues whilst we were there. The boiler doesn't seem to work very well. The water comes out nice and hot for the first person who wants a shower but there wasn't enough water for two to shower in a row, which meant that I took a few tepid showers, and there definitely wasn't enough hot water for a hot bath (which I missed because it's freezing out!). Secondly, the extractor fan in the kitchen seems to have a loose flap in it that makes a lot of noise, especially if it's windy outside. If you're the sort of person who likes to relax and read a book with a bit of peace and quiet then it gets quite annoying. You can hear it from the bedroom at night as well.

Overall, the apartment is bright and clean and has everything you'd need for a nice holiday. The location is five star, and we had a lovely stay. Excellent value for money! If only it weren't for the couple of issues we had, I would have giiven a 5* rating.

Reviewed 8 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Great find for us. Clean tidy place in an ideal location. You have to park the car a couple of streets away but we knew that anyway, Only downside is getting up the steps to it after along walk lol, will definitely use again.

“What a find!”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Arrived on Thursday night with hubby for a long May Day weekend, got parked outside apartment with no problem - no parking disc left for us but luckly we had one so that was ok. Oyster was exactly as promised, very clean, comfy bed and a brilliant view over harbour - even watched the Tour de Yorkshire out of window! Lookin forward to going back.

“Can't fault!”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for a week in July and was very happy with the apartment when we arrived! It was lovely and clean, with everything you need -the bottle of wine is a nice touch! In regards to location it is perfect as it is right in the centre.The parking cards are very handy and we were lucky enough to find a space further up the road. Deb is also very helpful answering any questions I had. We would definitely return here when visiting Whitby, so thank you :)

Super location, surprisingly quiet at night. We spent an extremely comfortable and relaxing 9 days here, and are looking to return in 2015. Absolutely smooth and troublefree booking; everything went like silk.
