Fayvan Apartments
Ranked #11 of 52 Speciality Lodging in Whitby
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Second time we've stayed here. Warm and witty welcome from Benita, who only improves with time! Such a natural hostess! I have known Whitby for many years, so only needed an update on foodie places/pubs which was given in abundance. Lovely apartment, clean (which is paramount in my book), warm and cosy. Just chilled out and relaxed. Walked to Sandsend, wandered around the harbour and thankfully the end of the pier was inaccessible due to some kind of works, which I was grateful for (hate seeing the sea beneath my feet!), paid a visit to a local reclamation yard on the advice of the local sign man and got a lovely piece of oak planking to make a coat hook plaque - very reasonable too. Called in at Robin Hoods Bay - deserted, but all the more enchanting. I can and have highly recommended Fayvan to family and friends. Wonderful, relaxing place and hosts. Incidentally it was recommended to me by my best friend who has stayed a few times over the years. She has two lovely kids (well, adults now) and they all enjoyed their family holidays/breaks here. Fantastic. Penny P.

Room Tip: We have usually stayed in No.2 apartment. (lowest floor available)

Only been to Whitby for the day before now but were delighted to stay here for the weekend. Received a warm welcome on arrival. Really nice apartment - felt very homely as soon as we walked in. Had everything we needed and the beds are very comfortable. We didn't hear any noise at night, even with the 60s weekend happening at the nearby Pavilion! A great spot for access to the town and view of the sea. All in all, a great weekend!

I stayed at The Fayvan apartments with a group of friends for my 40th birthday. We hired all the apartments out and it worked out really well. The rooms were decorated to a high standard and self contained with all amenities provided. The owners were very warm and welcoming and advised us of the best places to visit. The location is handy to the shops, pubs and restaurants, all being within walking distance. I would totally recommend The Fayvan to couples, families or groups.

We stayed here at xmas time, and it was the ideal location - with the sea and Whitby both within easy walking distance.

After the pub, it was lovely to trot back to the apartments for a cosy return. The decor is modern and bright and decorated tastefully, and the hostess Benita is very friendly and always happy to advise or help where possible. The kitchen was well equipped with all modern facilities and extremely clean.

I would definitely recommend Fayvan to anyone wanting to stay in Whitby. Great for families and for a romantic getaway. The kids loved the sweets in the entrance hall !

Had a lovely stay here we thought the apartment was lovely in fact I could have happily lived here. The location was ideal and Benita could not have been more welcoming we will definately return.

We have been staying at Fayvan for a few years now. Benita is always there to greet us when we arrive. The apartments have everything you need for a self catering stay.Dvds,puzzles and books are provided for the kids in the apartments, ensuring that we dont have to bring everything from home! Both my children love to wake up every morning of our stay and look out at the boats on the sea, they have always had a great view from whichever room we have stayed in. The apartments are lovely and clean and nothing is ever too much trouble for Benita. We would never stay anywhere else in Whitby.

Lovely bright and airy apartments fitted and looked after to a high standard with all the usual things you need and more. We're lucky to have found this place and have happily spent the last two Folk Festivals here and have already booked it again for next year. Really convenient for everything on the main side of the town - very close to the Pavilion for example and sandy beaches. Easy to find by road and parking relatively straightforward. The proprietor, Benita, is really welcoming and goes out of her way to make your stay the best possible. It's great to be able to see the sea and it's also much quieter from a seagull point of view than the other places we've stayed in the past! Highly recommended.
