Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. When we stepped into this apartment, we were blown away! Far exceeded our expectations. Was spotlessly clean, very spacious and airy, all mod cons with veiws to die for! The location is a perfect base and is close to everything Whitby has to offer. We have noticed this property on previous visits to Whitby and were thrilled to find it with Welcome cottages. The website was very easy to book through and the two person discount was a a fantastic bonus! Enjoyed everything that the Old Boatmans Shelter had to offer and will be booking again without a doubt! Oct 2012.
  2. The property is well placed for access to the town centre of whitby. We got a good parking spot just out side the appartment and walked every where for the week. Sept 2012.
  3. Excellent accommodation. Stylish decor in every room and spotlessly clean. The location could not have been better, the views were amazing. There was also a delicious welcome pack of cakes, biscuits, tea and coffee which we thought was a very thoughtful and generous touch. We would highly recommend this accommodation. We had a lovely holiday, thanks in part to this wonderful accommodation! June 2012.
  4. Very cosy and warm in January. Would recommend it winter but bet it could be busy in summer by the pier. Super view and all clean and fresh. Jan 2012.
  5. We found this to be a quirky, well presented and deceptively spacious apartment in a fantastic location. The views were perfect for anyone who loves Whitby and the pier is literally seconds away from your doorstep. Dec 2011.
  6. The property is perfect, right in the heart of things. It was fitted beautifully through-out and went far above what we expected. The fact that someone had provided tea, coffee, biscuits, a bottle of wine and pint of milk was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and will be coming back again. Aug 2011.
  7. Fantastic location, great views of the harbour and abbey. Apartment was just the right size for the 3 of us. Would definitely use again. June 2011.
  8. Location is excellent with views out to sea and across to the 199 steps. Cooker easy to use without instruction. Feb 2011.
