The only good thing about this property is the location! Access was poor - uneven and slippery. The room was shabby, unclean, poor facilities and items were damaged. Bed was uncomfortable - dipped in the middle and pillows were wafer thin. No support. There was no fire evacuation details on the back of the door showing escape routes. Kitchenette was poor - no washing facilities for crockery. No bins on site so once our room bin was full there was nowhere to empty it. Accommodation was so bad, we considered leaving early.

We loved the location and the flat. The WiFi was good and the space itself was lovely and spotless.

Royal Crescent Jan 2018

Okay place with a large living room. the shower room was rather small and the bedroom was a squash and a squeeze with a double bed. Cooking facilities are rather basic, but you don't expect a fully equipped kitchen in this type of accommodation. Place was clean and tidy with no major issues.

Cons: Cleanliness someone to report diy etc
What should of been a refreshing weekend in Whitby turned out to be horrible myself and hubby were shattered when we got home ..worst stay .1,bed horrendous 2,settee appalling 3,the 3 bulb light fitting only one bulb 4,the shower walls full of mould didn't think the shower has ever been cleaned 5,the noise the shower made and the fan was horrendously loud top all of this the guests from upstairs kept us up till 2.30 am ! Swearing banging and throwing things at each other will never stay with discovery again it has totally put us off now and we paid nearly £200 for 2 nights never again !!

Apartment with view of the Abbey and sea.

Pros: It's hidden, quiet, having said that, the season hadn't fully started when we were there.It's a convenient place to stay and comfy .
Location: Whitby is enchanting, still retains most of it's old world charm and is unique.
We stayed in 'Dune' which is a one bedroomed apartment set away up a quiet side street. There are stairs up to the property so it wouldn't be any good to people with impaired mobility. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable having everything you need for your stay. From the windows you can look over Whitby red tiled rooftops and sea the Abbey and the sea. When we stay in Whitby, we always try to book with 'Discovery' accommodation , it's all very easy, and with electronic door entry so you don't need to bother about handing keys in etc. I would recommend this company. As for Whitby as a place, we have been so many times it's like a second home.It has everything you want, walks, pubs, eateries, coffee shops, it's great for families and kids who will love to explore the little coves and beaches and rock pools, but..I don't want to tell you about all that as I want to keep it all to ourselves !!!!
