Fabulous house but in need of some TLC , good location

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only niggles were we were not able to open all windows and felt uncomfortable in case of fire. No clear fire escape .What smoke/carbon monixide alarms were there seemed dated.Bin problem needs sorting. No clear indication of what bin belongs to what property. All bins were full on arrival and we were told by refuse collectors at the end of our stay that they still would not be emptied as they were contaminated.

Albany House is an elegant Georgian semi-detached town house arranged on upper ground, first and second floors, with gravelled private forecourt garden and private parking to the rear. The house is located on the junction of Silver Street and The Paddock, although entering the postcode – YO21 3BX - into your SatNav may direct you to Wellington Terrace, a little further up Silver Street!

The house is within a short walk of the many attractions of the town, including the harbour, the town centre and the beach at West Cliff.



Please park in the dedicated space to the rear of the house. There is room for two medium sized cars in tandem – just about! If two families are sharing the property, and both have large estate cars, it may be better to leave one car on the unrestricted parking areas on the streets near West Cliff.

Mrs Trussell
The house is lovely but a bit tired. New blinds needed in top floor rooms. Not enough information on which bins were ours. Most of them full. The location is excellent and we didn’t need the cars much. We all loved Whitby and had a fabulous time.
Mrs John
The listing advertised a playroom which was one of the main points we went for this one as we had children with us but upon getting there we found it was blocked off by 2 pieces of wood screwed into the entrance. We were never imformed of this. The listing also advertised a highchair and a travel cot, the highchair was there but no travel cot so my daughter had to sleep on one of the mattresses on the floor. This was such a shame as this tarnished the holiday. As the above wasnt available can someone please contact me as i think its only fair that i should receive some money back as i paid for something that we couldnt use.
Mrs Hardwick
We can’t wait to go back! Plenty of space, great location in town and parking was a bonus
Mrs Simpson
Albany house is a fabulous stay. Exceeded all expectations. Superb and spacious accommodation with everything you would want. Perfect location for the town of Whitby. Would highly recommend
Mrs Edwards
The house is lovely, kitchen well equipped , bed very comfortable. We had a problem with the main TV and the tumble dryer , both very promptly resolved.. A couple of minor quibbles: - the parking behind the house is very tight , 2 cars of any size would have been almost impossible. - the sitting area is onto the Main Street next door to the chip shop
Dr Hutchison
On the whole we had a wonderful family holiday, Albany house is lovely and met all our needs as an 8 member family! Clean, comfortable and ideally situated! Our only negative was that on Thursday night after/during a torrential rain storm we discovered a leak from the loft “ games room” which went through in to the twin bedroom below in several places making one of the beds wet and into the light switch electrics causing a sizzling noise from the switch, hence we dare not use the light or the room for fear of a short and possibly even a fire hazard? We reported it to yourselves at 9am Friday and we’re told someone would be round to assess it! We went out for the day and upon our return hadn’t heard back ,so I phoned again to be told they would look in to what was happening with it and would get back to us!!! Disappointingly we heard nothing at all from any one from Sykes ! The four members of the family on the top floor ended up sleeping in the living room for 2 nights as we were worried because the leak had affected the electrics !! We actually left a bowl and a bucket up there to catch the leaks ! I do not feel this was very good customer service from yourselves as we had no feed back about our problem from you at all, no follow up apology in fact no communication at all!! I just hope the problem was rectified before the nxt family arrived today!!
Mrs Watton
Patio furniture is quite rusty, it needs either repainting or replacing. Some of our party had rust stains on theiir clothes. Other than that the house is very comfortable, great location , well equipped, parking for 2 cars and within easy reach of beach and shops . Our 2nd holiday there, would highly recommend.
Mr Dunne
Just that it was superb. Our visit was not for the nicest of reasons but Albany House put a smile on everybody’s face. It was perfect for 9 adults not getting under each other’s feet. Will recommend the house and your company to all. Regards, John.
Mr Clifton
A few more mugs and glasses, particularly champagne flutes as we were celebrating a significant birthday, would have been useful. Otherwise the kitchen was well stocked.
Mrs Illingworth
This is out 3rd Christmas in Whitby. House is very spacious and decorated and furnished to high standard The bedrooms and bathrooms were all great with good showers and water pressure Towels and bedding were great. There were some issues with cobwebs, we found hairs on one of the window seats General debris under the microwave, bin needed cleaning and the detergent drawer on the washing machine was quite disgusting and had to be cleansed thoroughly before use. Also the kitchen was a disappointment Its not equipped for family of 8 or 9 The fridge is far too small and had a large ice box taking up all of the room and isnt needed when there is a freezer next to it I would have expected a large larder fridge in a kitchen of this size It was a pain having to go into the utility room all the time to the other spare fridge There isnt much work top space when serving up and cooking I think the kitchen is badly planned and needs an island to increase work space. The grill on the range cooker was useless you can only use the front part of it and the pan kept falling off the shelf if you pushed it too far in and its very small The radio didnt seem to work which wasnt too big a problem as you could get it on the TV Although were lots of pans there there were no serving dishes or large bowls and I had to buy some. The cafetierre leaked all over when pouring. TV in lounge quite small and the stand does not fit the decor and when we tried to use netflix we were unable to as too many other devices (not ours) were logged in. We did enjoy our stay and house is in a good location and very warm and comfortable Parking is a bonus but is very tight (we were warned of this in the info) Just a few niggles and didnt quite make the mark for us. I have put it met expectations as on the whole it did except for the points above.
Ms Renshaw
We love Albany House - we've stayed there many times over the years and it's always so clean, light and welcoming; a real home away from home. The little touches like providing a welcome bag including milk, tea and coffee means we can walk straight in and make a cuppa - wonderful after a long journey! The facilities provided in the kitchen mean we don't have to bring a car full of equipment to feed a houseful around the enormous kitchen table (the slow cooker is a godsend for a family meal after a day out exploring). Finally the size of the house makes it large enough for our family to to be together but still have their own space, especially with the apartment now available below.
Ms Hanley
Not as advertised. This property is in desperate need of refurbishment. Bathrooms need updating. Mould around bath and showers. Very worn. Dishwasher left blocked with water unusable. Mould around washing machine. No windows would open all closed. Bedrooms need Re decorating. The standard of this cottage is definitely not as you advertised it. Very dissatisfied
Mr Twigg
We have stayed at Albany House many times over the years. unfortunately we have booked elsewhere next year due to the price hike and the house hasn't had any money spent on it in the past ten years eg same cracked ensuite floor..tatty tiles ..cracked toilet etc. Still lovely Southners will love it.
