Excellent cottage
Mrs Wetton
We were delighted with the accommodation, especially the view across the harbour. There was a problem with the lock on the washing machine and the service was second to none. The technician was excellent, visiting on the Sunday, ordering the new part on the Monday and repairing it by the Tuesday. The accommodation was immaculate and facilities were very good. We booked it again straight away. The staff in the Whitby office were extremely pleasant and helpful.
Mr Pirt
The cottage itself was really nice and had everything we needed for our break. We all enjoyed our stay and would return again. The cottage was modern, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The view was wonderful and the location perfect for us. The welcome pack was a lovely gesture and full of local goodies . Our ratings reflect the entrance porch and the patio area. The porch was the only way to access the cottage. The porch was unkempt with old leaves and dirt on the floor and spiders webs on the gate and door frame. The front door window was dirty. The porch had two very dirty and smelly dustbins. Flies were constantly around the bins even though we spayed the area ,and as we entered and exited the property it was difficult to avoid the flies. Three members of our group were bitten during our stay. Had we first seen the porch before booking we would not have booked. That would of course have been a shame as the interior was so clean and comfortable. The outside patio area was a also unkempt and not as inviting as the photographs suggested.
Mrs Norton
We loved Fishersmans Warehouse. It was clean and well equipped. The view from the sitting room was simply stunning. It became home from home instantly and would recommend a stay there to everyone.
Mrs Walton
Very nice place, very quiet, beautiful view. I really appreciated the basket of food.
Miss Gambellin
Good facilities, kitchen had everything you would want., clean and tidy. Very close to centre of Whitby with all its attractions. Parking was not a problem. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
Mr Tate
Been to the Fisherman’s Warehouse several times.Always good to be back.Highly recommended.
Dr King
A beautiful, very well-equipped and nicely presented cottage. Lovely views across the harbour to the Abbey and St Mary’s Church, and a perfect viewing point for the regatta fireworks.
Mrs Sheridan
The patio is very gd for the views but could do with smartening up a bit quite old .The house was very comfy & brill views from lounge window .
Mr Herne
on arrival the entrance porch was very dirty also the patio area was unuseable due to weeds filthy table and chairs and all the area.totally unacceptable
Mr Lundberg
As with previous comments, it's such a shame that the entrance is grubby and just needs a quick sweep, first impressions! Otherwise, we loved it.
Mr Tooley
Very nice flat with everything one might need on holiday. The views are amazing and the location is very good with short walks to the beach and shops. Parking is difficult but we could always find a space fairly quickly. The owners provided us with lots of information and a nice „survival kit“. The flat was clean, however, there was a bit of dust from recent painting. The creaking floorboards in the kitchen were a bit of a problem while our baby was sleeping but that’s just a minor thing. There was lots of space to store all our luggage and having a washing machine and tumble dryer was a big bonus. We really liked the big entrance area with lots of space for the buggy , beach equipment and shoes. The apparently brand new upstairs bathroom was very nice. All in all we had a lovely stay and the flat was a really good base for our day trips to the Yorkshire Moors, Robin Hood‘s Bay or the beach.
Mrs Wiebeck
We felt the details for this property were very misleading. It was far from ‘immaculate’ as described, I would in fact summarise it as tired and grubby. Early on in our stay I went to the Yorkshire Coastal Cottages office to pick up a parking ticket and was a little embarrassed to mention that the property was rather grubby. The staff said they were surprised and disappointed to learn this and offered me a mid week clean. As I didn’t want to cause a fuss and as I initially believed their apology was genuine , I declined. My main intention was to make sure that the following weeks guests didn’t have to endure some of the things that we were. It was only when a member of our group subsequently checked on the reviews of the property in more detail that I realised that the letting agents could not possibly have been genuinely surprised as a string of reviews has told them how grubby the property is. The reassurance that they gave me about it being the last week of the cleaner and a new cleaner being installed for the following week was remarkably similar to the promise they have used for many of the reviews in the past 12 months. How very disappointing! To knowingly let out a property where the cleaning is substandard is clearly not acceptable. To do this week after week after many complaints is wilfully negligent and shows a complete lack of respect for the customer. I was told a member of staff was in the house showing a new cleaner around prior to our arrival. If this was true, why wasn’t the quality of cleaning actually checked? If they couldn’t guarantee a clean home, why keep the price of the rental at the original price? What we paid for did not match the description-the company are clearly mis-selling this property. For clarity of the future potential customers I will provide a summary of the positives and negatives of the property as we found it. Before I begin,I will again state that the letting agents have formally been made aware of ALL of the issues in many previous reviews. Exterior entrance vestibule. This was extremely grubby both on the walls windows and floor. One might anticipate some seagull fathers floating in to this space but the level of cobwebs and grime were well beyond that. As mentioned in other reviews this area was smelly and was full of flies. Perhaps the bins should be washed out periodically. We found ourselves holding our noses as we walked through this space. Interior vestibule. This was a pleasant space, great for storing buggies or bikes.The York stone flooring was very attractive. The plinth where the modem was stored was very dusty and was our first sign of things to come. Laundry cupboard -a very dirty,cob web filled space which contained a washing machine and tumble dryer. Buckets and spades and a few games were in this space too but were hard to access initially as all of the cleaning products appeared to have been thrown onto the floor of this space leaving us unable to step inside until we did a bit of rearranging. This was a minor irritation but nothing that caused this too much concern. Upstairs bathroom. At some point in its history, this room has been rather nicely decorated. Unfortunately by our arrival it appeared to be very tired and unloved. There are clearly ventilation issues as the shower grouting had patches of black mildew and the metal sink which supported the glass bowl was covered in rust. There was plenty of dust, spiderwebs and 8 legged friends to be found in this room. Main lounge area – I think the best way to describe this room would be that it was functional. It was a no frills room as we had anticipated but It is true that there is a very good view of the harbour and of the abbey. The windows were rather grubby but that didn’t concern us too much. Kitchen - this was actually quite well equipped. The crockery, cutlery, pans and glassware was all fine. Markings on the oven had clearly worn off , the barely visible masking tape instructions on its face were difficult to decipher but al least someone had tried! The tiled backsplash and cooker hood were greasy. A little unappealing! Bedroom 1 - this was a large space and looked promising. Unfortunately we soon became aware of yet more cleaning issues. Imagine our surprise when we opened the drawers by the side of the bed to find old tracksuit bottoms, dirty socks and a used tissue! On closer inspection the floors were very dirty at the edges. I could almost believe this room had not been hoovered or swept. On the plus side, the bedding and towels were very white and looked fresh. As we settled down to bed in the evening we were rather unimpressed by the many cobwebs that fluttered all around the edges of the ceiling in every part of the room. When I reached down to plug in my phone I had to push aside many cobwebs. As I got out of bed the next day, my stomach rather turned as I put my hand on the bed head to discover it was absolutely thick with dust. In times of Covid this was not reassuring! We found the bed rather small and soft but do understand that this is a matter of personal preference. Bedroom 2 -We needed to use this space as a double room so when we moved the beds across we were rather appalled to see the grime and detritus that lay on the floor underneath. This room was clearly in need of a deeper clean too because as we hoovered this detritus up, it appeared to be rather stuck to the floor.On a practical note, access to plugs in this room would have been a little tricky had we not moved the beds. This was a very small room but was functional if you ignored the dust and cobwebs. Bathroom-The main sink in this room was dirty on arrival. The mirror light still does not work despite assurances in a previous review from the company that they had fixed it. On a plus note the shower was nice and powerful. ‘Terrace’ -We had imagined when we booked this property that would be able to return from town and sit on the terrace with our family enjoying a nice evening drink. The tempting description of this outside space and the photo was our main reason for booking this property. What we found in reality was that this space was very limited. It is paved but the whole area is probably less than a metre and a half wide. I’m not sure if cleaning of the furniture was part of the weekly brief but when we arrived the chairs were covered in bird poo. Again you might expect some accidents from seagulls during the week but not as you first walk in. ( Fortunately some rain on the final day may have helped clean the furniture this week) Whereas we had imagined being able to sit around a little table, we couldn’t in fact arrange the chairs in anything other than a single curved line if we wanted to sit out there. Some large weeds bought a welcome bit of greenery to this joyless area but did not really add much to the ambience. It all felt very unloved, rather like the rest of the property. We chose not to sit in this area once over the week despite some nice weather. Sadly, this property felt unloved, grubby and tired, and was far from ‘immaculate’ as was promised in the description. There is a clear discrepancy here and I welcome further interaction with the letting company as I believe, given their failure to address the basic issues many customers have repeatedly mentioned, we were mis-sold this accommodation. I have photos of some of the areas of concern should they be needed. It is so sad to have to write this but someone needs to take ownership of the issues here. I had hoped that a quiet,private word would have been enough and I probably would not have written had I not realised that I had been lied to. Fobbing off the customers with empty apologies and promises is not acceptable and so disappointing.
Mrs Sutton-smith
The much promised view of the sea and the harbour from the terrace was non-existent. The terrace was overgrown with weeds and covered in bird mess. [Photos provided to you] The T.V. in the bedroom was not working and neither was the light on the bathroom mirror. The mattresses were very soft, as were the chairs in the lounge and not suitable for people with bad backs. The inside of the property was clean and the kitchen well equipped but the front porch was very dirty and had not been swept for some time. The view from the lounge was very good. A convenient location for all amenities.
Mr Bride
Very disappointing experience. We arrived to find the gas had been left turned on, which was an extremely dangerous situation, and the response from Yorkshire Coastal Cottages was completely inadequate. The property description is also misleading - the outside space is much smaller than the website images suggest, and we were unable to use it as the space and furniture was absolutely filthy. Disappointing when this was the main reason for choosing this property for our stay.
Mrs Swanson
Second visit at the same time of year. Great, lovely warm cosy cottage. Perfect location. Beautiful views of Abbey. Clean, comfortable, spotless linen and towels, Comfy beds and pillows. Well equipped kitchen
The Shaws
Fabulous stay weather great, lots of lovely walks - Whitby to Staithes and Whitby to RHB, beautiful views and relatively easy going. Haven't had a bad meal anywhere and easily the best fish we have had for a long time. The Cook museum is worth a visit as is a trip on the railway. We didn't manage a boat trip, something to come back for - some great little pubs, Golden Lion and the Black Horse and the Duke of York is good value on the food front.
The Dobinsons
Great view from the living room - the impression we got from photos was that the window would be higher so we were pleased to enjoy the fabulous view - great surprise! Very friendly and helpful staff in the office, both on arrival and previously on the phone. Thank you. Great welcome pack also!
Micklethwaite Party
Welcome pack wonderful! Welcome by your staff lovely. Really enjoyed our stay. Perfect location, comfy, cosy cottage. Beds and pillows very comfortable. Spotlessly clean cottage. Kitchen sparkled! Lovely porch to dump all shoes, coats and boots! Would recommend Cinder Track walk to Robin Hood's Bay, May Beck Walk in Woods - lovely cafe half way. Magpie Cafe, Abbey Wharf, Moon and Sixpence - Happy Hour Cocktails - great atmosphere! Sanders Yard always pleases.
The Shaw Family
Great location and we used our car once only.
Margo and Clive.
Excellent location, welcome pack and cleaning materials really helpful.
Ainsworth Party
Great View!
Swinnerton Party
Terrific week! Thank you!
Anthony Vigor
Fisherman's Warehouse was our first accommodation booked with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages. We had previously booked our twice yearly holidays in Whitby via another cottage company but the last couple of years had brought too many disappointments. So we decided to try your company as you appeared to offer a much higher standard of accommodation along with excellent service, We certainly weren't disappointed and this is the first time we loved a place so much we re-booked. Fisherman's Warehouse is airy, spacious and comfortable with a superb view. It's in a quiet central location where we can nip out in any direction. Well equipped, clean and tidy, it served us well. Having the second toilet/shower room was a bonus. Thank you too for the lovely goody bag and Easter Egg, much appreciated. We look forward to our return visit in October. Thank you for great service & accommodation.
Mick and Elaine
What a great place, this place feels like home! Only downside is that I didn't book two weeks!
