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.

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 !!!!
