We love staying at Quayside, this was our fifth visit. The house suits our needs as a group of friends and the location can't be beaten! However, on this visit we found the house wasn't as clean. The seat cushions on the sofas hadn't been hoovered under for a while and there were empty cans under them! Up in the attic bedrooms was noisy, there was a banging/flapping noise coming from the sides of the rear dormer when it was windy. The hot tap in the furthest attic bedroom doesn't work. The outside, around the porch door still could do with a sweep and a lick of paint. We mentioned this last time!
Mrs Greenwood
Quayside cottage is delightful, we stayed for my 60th birthday at the beginning of November with family , dogs and babies . The size and location of the house were perfect and as we did have sandy dogs ( and babies ) I felt I was able to relax without having to continually clean up ( although I still did ! ) During the week the heating and hot water stopped working however the agents rectified this within a few hours . Before our visit I had read some bad reviews and was very concerned however the house is warm , comfortable, in a superb location next to the beach and great pub ! It isn’t 5 star as needs a lot of maintenance but is a comfy , beachside home and we had a very happy week
Mrs Crooks
I was concerned after reading several reviews about the cleanliness of the house particularly but I didn’t need to be. The house was clean and we had a lovely stay. The location is perfect for the beach and is very well equipped on the whole. The fish and chip shop along the road is lovely and the pub food across the road is delicious with huge portions. We took the bus to Whitby and Runswick Bay. The only improvements I would say is that some of the mattresses could do to be replaced and some more glasses for the kitchen which would make the stay perfect. We are hoping to return next year.
Mr Mctaggart
This property was great for our family to stay with a really good location close to the beach and several great cafes. We had a great time. The house is comfortable but shabby and needs a proper deep clean and some maintenance and updating, especially with bathroom fittings, many of which were damaged or needed replacing.
Mr Tottie
This was the perfect setting and stay for our family of 10. We had everything we needed for a fantastic 7 day stay. The beds and bedding were so comfortable. We all slept so well! The location was perfect. Great views from the house and a wonderful starting point for days out, runs, walks and lazy days on the beach :-)
Mrs Armstrong
Beautiful location but the house could with a little refresh. Shower door in the main bathroom is still broken (noticed from a previous stay 12 months earlier). Disappointed in the cleanliness of the property. Garden overgrown and unusable. Why advertise as being dog friendly and have no garden? Love Sandsend but will be staying at another property next year.
Mr Baranowski
Absolutely lovely place would definitely stay there again
Mr Goodman
Great location. Quayside is really good for family holiday together and provides homely environment but is generally in need of some tlc. The cooker is well past its best. Outside is really poor and needs a good tidy up (dog mess, builders rubble and litter). That said we had a great time and loved being close to the beach.
Mr Fisher
We had a lovely stay, the location was perfect. The house could do with a few more items like a dressing table to get ready, but overall was good and as expected!
Mrs Bell
Our 4th stay here. We love the house and location. It works well for us, we are a group of great friends and will be back! Only downside was the outside of the house, particularly the side porch, which could do with a tidy up and painting.
Mrs Greenwood
The property I stayed in was lovely could do with a bit of decorating here and there However the most serious issue was one of the The main doors was blocked up with a hoover and a set of ladders and a stair gate if there was a fire I don’t think we will be able to get out in time
Mr Richmond
This is our 6th trip to the cottage, we love it. But it desperately needs the oven fixing, it just doesn't get to temperature unless it's on full blast, and the dials are hard to read as the marks have worn off.
Ms Comrie
This was our third stay here. There have been some improvements since our last visit, a new sofa in the living room being one of them. A great house in a wonderful location with plenty of places to eat nearby. We will be back.
Mrs Greenwood
Rented for a family get together. Perfect location. All bedding and towels really clean and house had everything we needed. Would recommend and would use again.
Mr Seller
Quayside is in a perfect location with beautiful views from the front out to the sea. The windows, particularly the front bay was quite dirty and detracted from the amazing view. The property definitely needs some TLC and updating of furnishings, some walls show signs of damp and the windows could do with replacing, they were completely covered in condensation each morning. If the property was updated I would definitely return just for the location.
Mrs Thompson
A fantastic location. A Comfortable house. A larger fridge would have made things easier for a family of ten. As it is, there is a fridge freezer but the fridge is quite small. Would stay here again.
Mr Bradley
Fantastic location. We were a bit worried about being on a busy main road, but the traffic wasn't noticeable. Plenty of parking nearby so we had no trouble finding somewhere for our second car. Very comfortable and well equipped house, which was nicely sized for ten people. Past and recent feedback suggested the house was dirty, which I reported to Sykes and they responded positively and helpfully. The house was holiday home clean when we arrived, but it is a bit shabby and tired in most rooms. Carpets downstairs are worn, maybe natural floorboards or laminate floor would be more sensible given this house will attract beach lovers. There's also a problem with damp throughout the house, particularly in the rooms at the back, which was noticeable and unpleasant in the dining room. The cooker is probably at the end of it's useful life - the controls are unreadable and there's only one shelf. We had a few unwelcome guests downstairs, mice made regular visits in the downstairs hallway. There are a few holes along the bottom of the skirting boards that would benefit from being blocked up. Outsider space would be a fantastic addition to the house. There appears to be a garden at the rear of the property which would be great for eating out and relaxing if it was cleared. I've organised an annual holiday for ten or so people for many years and I've had much better quality for a similar or cheaper price. I would consider booking this house again as the location and layout made up for the few shortcomings.
Mr Atkinson
Not a good start with a nasty smell on arrival in the hall, and we needed to wash up everything from the cupboard which had a musty smell. Basics like bin liners and dishwasher tablets not supplied and the front windows needed cleaned Having said that the property is in a great location and the bedrooms and front room were clean and comfortable with the beach, a great pub and fish and chip restaurant on the doorstep. Also the drive could be changed to accommodate 2 cars and with no access to the garden which is overgrown.
Mr Harrold
Arriving to find the outside bin full to capacity and 2 cardboard boxes full of bottles some of which were broken is unacceptable, hence we cant give it top marks for cleanliness. parking has always been a problem and was much worse this time. No space was available on any of the nearby streets so a car park had to be used for our sons car for the duration of the stay, meaning that he had to be up and out by 8.30 am to go and pay for each days parking before 9 am. Sandsend is beautiful and the house is in a lovely location.
Mr Tinsley
Excellent location. Needs news beds and new TV.
Mrs Godliman
The location of the property is excellent with direct access to the beach and sea views. However the property needs a thorough update and deep clean. The downstairs toilet smelt of urine and 2 showers for 10 people isn’t really enough. There is a lot of building work going on next door which is encroaching on the rear of the property, with plastic covering the dining room window completely. It would be courteous to let guests know that this is happening before they arrive. Window keys were missing meaning we were unable to open windows.
Ms Venning
As with other reviews, this property needs some loving care. The location is superb but the quality is lacking. If you ever persuade the owners to upgrade the beds, clean the windows, attend to all the neglect, do let me know and we would certainly rebook. It’s such a shame. Hope this helps, yours, hopefully, AS.
The dirtiest and most badly maintained property I have ever stayed in, a real disappointment. The heating and hot water broke down on Sunday morning to cap it all.
Mr Mills
Inside the house was clean, comfortable and spacious. Lots of rooms and bathrooms and toilets especially good. The welcome pack was nice but the milk (frozen) had gone off and I threw it away.Outside it really needs a lot of TLC. If only the back of the house was tidy. It was a mess to look out on..and could a nice seating area be created? The front looks very tired and the steps wrecked. Many of the windows (sash) need repair or replacing. I'm not surprised as the traffic on the road was horrendous. It was only adults staying thank goodness.(except for one grandchild for 2 days) I would not want to stay here with children by that terrible road. It needs to be emphasised in the advert. We enjoyed our stay because we were out and about every day and it WAS good to be so close to the beach. I thought it was overpriced and I was worried that my family would be disappointed by the appearance of the house. I would not return here for that reason. I think you should remove it from your books until it's had all these things addressed. Some fold up garden chairs for the beach would have been nice too.
Mrs Kipling
The house is a good size for 10 people but lack of long-term maintenance and attention to detail do detract away from the near perfect beach location. We had a heating issue while we were away and this was resolved swiftly. Thank you. The 2nd floor rooms are accessed by a steep uncarpeted stair and sliding doors (one of which squeeks) and the single beds were very high; these were all a concern with young children and did cause issues. The mattresses are well worn and covered with a duvet which does not make for a great nights sleep. The duvets bizarrely seem to get mixed up inside the cover every night so you have to remake 10 beds every day! The oven and hob dials have rubbed off all except one and the oven has seen better days and takes an age to heat. There are plenty of wine glasses but very limited normal drinking glasses. The windows were filthy which prevents a good view of the Seaview. The front of the bay has damaged double glazing which no amount of cleaning will help! We cleaned the front window but you couldn’t tell by the end of the week so weekly cleaning is required. The bird poo in the upstairs rear window suggests this hasn’t been done for a while. The house would benefit from a second bath and the massive front bathroom has plenty of space to accommodate. The floor in this room is coming us and needs local repair. Parking for one car for a 10 bed is less than ideal but this is clear in the marketing so we parked for free by the public loos which was not one of the listed suggestions which were all full. Fitting 10 people around the dinning table is probably unrealistic! The house does have a significant damp problem most likely caused by leaking drainage puddling behind the wall, high external ground levels, poor render detailing and lack of damp proofing (not caused by its proximity to the sea despite this being noted in the house). There is also cracking to the front elevation. These issues do need dealing with as they will be damaging the structure and the remediation costs are only going to increase with time and damage; albeit they did not massively affect our short term stay but they are unpleasant and we did have to buy candles and air spray to hide the damp smell.
Mrs Church
The house was absolutely filthy & is in desperate need of a deep clean & maintenance. We were not at all comfortable staying there, the state of the property led to us having to pay to eat out as we couldn’t face cooking or in the property, the children were constantly covered in dirt & hair from the floor and soft furnishings. There was mould in many places within the property. The kitchen was not stocked with appropriate equipment. There was not suitable or hygienic cleaning equipment left for us to attempt to tackle the worst of it ourselves. I did complain when we got there to Yorkshire Cottages, I then had to chase to find one when a cleaner was coming & nobody called me back to see if we were then satisfied. The cleaner sent stayed for no longer 30minutes, cleaned only two things that she’d remembered she’d been informed about & did not appear to notice any of the other areas that desperately need attention. I have a number of photos that I will be sending on to you as evidence clearly showing the piles of hair and dirt collecting in every room, the mould in the fridge, on the ironing board, the walls. We paid over £2000 for the accommodation & am so disappointed that we all felt so uncomfortable being there.
Mrs Doyle
The house sleeps 10 and the fridge is an under counter size, which is ridiculous. That is only suitable for a cottage with two guests, there is plenty of room in the pantry for an upright larder fridge which you can get for about £300. Its a great location in Sandsend but the house needs a good make over, think it will be very tired looking by the summer.
Mr Hodgson
A great holiday cottage in a peaceful location. The welcome bag was much appreciated as a personal touch. Thank you for a great holiday in Whitby. So much to do that we didn't get a chance to fit it all into a 5 day break so we will definitely be back.
Baxter Party
House very comfortable and well equipped. We would recommend The Hart Inn which serves excellent food. Also The Tides. Two gift shops next door are also very good.
Greenwood Party
Beautifully clean and so wonderfull furnished.
Rebecca Adams
Fabulous Cottage; very warm and comfortable. Handy for everything in Whitby with views of the Abbey from bedroom windows.
Ellis Party
Brilliant location, would definitely come back. Welcome pack was a lovely touch.
Mannion Party
Lovely cottage - comfortable, spacious, nicely decorated and great position! Second time we have stayed at Quayside and I doubt it will be the last! Enjoyed another lovely meal at the Bridge Cottage Bistro. Yum!
Garthwaite Party
It was a great holiday for our family, 3 generations together. The location was great and the experience with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages very good. Many thanks
