“Fantastic property allowing freedom from hotel rooms”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We booked this property as having a 7 people would require 3 hotel rooms if we stayed in a hotel. Booking something like this gives you the freedom that you just can't get from hotel rooms. The property was in a great location with excellent views. Over 4 floors there are a lot of stairs, but the 3 yr old and 5 yr old loved the space and freedom to play. It is close to the town centre, the castle, Peasholm Park, Sealife Centre, beach and play park. The property was of excellent quality and we would recommend to others if they are looking for somewhere to stay in the area.

“Wonderful seaside location in a tall building”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This is a wonderful place for a large family group to stay. A tall building with wide and direct sea views, modern and interesting decor (I liked the Edward Hopper seaside paintings in the rooms). It's very fully equipped, even including stairgates, high chair, Sky TV and Broadband. In every way it's very comfortable and attractive to be in. If you use the topmost double room you will have 55 stairs to climb from the street, and the master bedroom is two floors up. But as long as you are OK with stairs, some a bit narrow and steep, it's no problem. Car parking is arranged nearby.

“Luxury accommodation , great location , amazing sea views , what more do you want!!!”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

This is one of the first holiday lettings we have stayed at where the accommodation exceeded our expectations. This truly is luxury accommodation with a home from home feel.
Newly decorated the colours and furniture are sympathetic to a seaside property very calming and fresh. The kitchen is well equipped and has lots of pans , knifes , chopping boards etc and there is also a coffee machine
The fixtures and fittings in this place are quality , with 3 amazing bathrooms. A huge 50 inch tv connected to a soundbar and bluray player so if you have young children and cant go out at night you will be easily entertained .
The major plus of this property is the picture postcard seaviews which you get from most rooms both of the North Bay at the front of the house and the South Bay at the rear of the property , when I saw seaviews listed on the advert I was expecting to see an obscured view from the top floor but there are full on views out of most windows , Fab!!!
The location is very good as well about 10 mins to the North Bay Beach (if you have small children buggies etc walk along Bleinhem terrace until you are at the beach above the waterfront café so its not as steep to access the beach and about the same time to town and the South Bay.
Be aware that the property is on 4 floors so if you have young children this could be an issue , there is a stairgate available though so that would help.
The place comes with 2 designated parking spots a garage and a space which are just behind the property (you can see your car from the rear windows ) but you have to walk around to the car park ,which is only a few mins away . There is also parking available on the street using permits. The outside patio is lovely with a seating area , bbq and a swing chair , its enclosed so safe for young children.
We will be back!!!
