We have stayed at Harbour House twice before and have already booked to stay next year. We are four mature ladies who all like our own room and this house is just the job for us.
Mrs Skidmore
Harbour house is a wonderful place to stay !! Felt very homely! Enough space for 6 adults to have privacy! Great location, no problem parking, we will be booking again as we all had such a great stay !
Mrs Proffitt
Very happy when we arrived at Harbour House Whitby, location was excellent being in the centre of Whitby so everywhere was walking distance after unloading and parking the cars. All bedrooms spacious and clean on the 2 floors and 2 bathrooms and 1 bedroom with en-suite. Kitchen is compact so more than 2 people is a squeeze. One thing I will say about the kitchen is when you wash up and put items to drain the water makes the worktops wet, I don't know if it would benefit a draining tray to collect the water! We found a bulb had blown in the inside porch area on arrival when trying to unload the cars in the dark but after calling the number in the welcome book it was rectified the following day and also a new plastic shower mat was supplied after I said the one in the bathroom had seen better days! We were so lucky with the weather being end of October, we all had a great time and stay and would definitely book Harbour House again if another family holiday in Whitby came up!
Ms Storm
A great holiday in a comfortable house. Central, but quiet location, and great layout - good to have bedrooms on two floors, and three bathrooms. Suggest a chair or surface to put things on in large bathroom, and hooks in the en suite would be useful simple improvements. Like other reviews, we found the microwave impossible to use. The small yard doesn't match the quality of the house, and could be upgraded. There were a few cigarette butts left in the yard. Overall would recommend this spacious and characterful house for a family group.
Miss Keegan
The second time we have stayed in this property and it is in a great location. Good to have 3 bathrooms but the en-suite shower is quite erratic. Early problems when we arrived were dealt with quickly and with courtesy. We were quite surprised to be paying almost 50 % more than last year for the same week but it’s a sign of the times
Mrs Foss
The property was lovely, and in a perfect position in the town. We did have a couple of problems but these were sorted out quickly and efficiently.
Mrs Bayer
The house was perfect for us. We were a family of 2 grandparents, 2 parents, 2 young boys and 2 young girls, therefore, the room configuration was perfect. The adults having ensuite bathrooms was great. Harbour house is in a perfect position for the town, shops and beaches, which were all within walking distance. Overall we had a great holiday and would readily recommend Harbour House and Sykes Holiday cottages.
Ms Bowden
Property not as clean as could be, underwear left in more than one drawer, shower head broken in main bathroom, back yard too dirty to use could do with a good clean.
Mr Butcher
The property was lovely and exactly as described. It was very comfortable and had everything that we needed. The location is fantastic, perfect for walking into Whitby and in such close proximity to everything that you need. If I was being really pedantic I would say that they could maybe have provided more toilet rolls and there were no replacement bin bags in the kitchen but that's it. It's a lovely house, fantastically comfortable and perfect for a family stay.
Miss Roberts
Lovely house in a great location for exploring Whitby! 8 adults & 2 babies stayed in the property for the weekend and it was perfect for what we needed. Very clean, spacious and welcoming home. We had a minor issue with one of the beds but this was dealt with and fixed by the owners within an hour of us notifying them which was amazing!! We will visit again & definitely recommend - thanks!
Mrs Ross
A lovely house, great location - warm, well furnished and very comfortable beds. Parking worked fine in the car park despite it being a busy half term week. Lots of lovely cafes and restaurants locally, we especially recommend the Rusty Shears close by for lunch or their bistro evenings. We had a few issues with tradesmen wanting access unannounced and other people in the locality knocking to get us to open the back alleyway up but I think these were pretty isolated incidents and unlikely to happen again! The office was helpful trying to sort them out and it didn’t detract from our stay. Highly recommend this property especially for an extended family like ours.
Mrs Fryer
Lovely house in the with all your comforts… spent a week there and with 5 others and it was lovely and spacious with plenty of room for 8 people. The kitchen wasn’t very big but we made it work. Very close to the main centre of town and very close to the beach. The only downside I can say is it took us about 2 days to figure out how to use the microwave and when we tried to use the TV mid week all we was getting was no signal (but I know there was recently a fire at the main transmitter so we just put it down to that) The cleaning downstairs also wasn’t really great as crisps were found between the cushions of the sofa and dust in the lounge. Saying this the upstairs was very clean and the beds were VERY comfy. We would stay here again.
Mr Belk
Comfortable houses in an ideal and quiet location, within a few minutes walk of shops and 5-10 mins from harbour. Expensive pay and display parking on the door step and only 5 mins walk to the West Cliff car park for which a free ticket is provided. Street-side parking vouchers also available for a second car, but you may have to drive round to find a space. Rooms are all a good size although the kitchen is best left to one person as it's quite narrow. If you want to cook at home, suggest bringing your own sharp knives as those in the property are rather blunt. Comfortable beds and wonderfully powerful showers. Would go back !
Mr Middleton
The cottage and location were very good. Parking in the area around the cottage was quite tricky but we were in an unusually busy time. What did let the property down was the kitchen. Some of the pans were not clean, we only managed to get the microwave to work once and there was no instructions for it. There were wheels missing on the dishwasher bottom drawer which made it very difficult to pull out. When the dishwasher or oven was open it meant no one could get in the kitchen and all the glasses including the wine and Prosecco glasses were kept in drawer so if the drawer was half empty and opened it was very difficult to not break the glasses. The rest of the house was lovely and we had a very enjoyable stay.
Miss Lindsay
Very well equipped cottage in a fabulous location. Really comfortable beds and brilliant to have 3 bathrooms. The addition of two parking spaces really appreciated.
Mrs Hawes
The house was lovely and really clean we enjoyed our holiday comfy beds plenty of cutlery and crockery
Mrs Bendelow
Neighbours made our stay disappointing - as they asked our child to stay still. Given we have a toddler that's not possible so perhaps you have to say no children allowed with stays. Also the bathroom pipes leaked which wasn't your fault but water went through the ceiling and caused quite a bit of concern / we had to stay in for plumber and one time we didn't they let themselves in - when all our things are in the house that shouldn't have been allowed. The house itself is fine but the dishwasher had a very bad smell and didn't clean things so we washed all in sink. And the house wasn't totally cleaned to a high standard. It worked as a base but the price was astronomical in return for what we got. We paid well over £2k
Mrs Sibley
Thank you again for a lovely stay in Whitby, it all starts with a very efficient and helpful booking service and then being given the keys to a very nicely presented, clean and warm house. Our children and grandchildren all love Whitby (it's in the blood so they should) and are already planning for next year. We had a very chilled 3 days even though the weather was against us. We will see you next year.
Steve Huntrod
An ideal property for our annual pilgrimage to Whitby. We are pleased that our grandchildren love it here as well as our children.
Huntrod Party
Fantastic customer service, the office had no problem answering my millions of questions prior to booking. We have just returned from a weekend in Whitby at Harbour House and the property was beautiful, spotlessly clean and great facilities/equipment. Would highly recommend Yorkshire Coastal Cottages.
The Scotts, March 2019
Yorkshire Coastal Cottage staff very helpful when we reported wi-fi code had worn out. Lovely, lovely location and a good, nicely designed family house.
Young Party
Beautiful house and brilliant location. Lovely property for a weekend break. Every amenity on the doorstep. Will definitely return and hopefully stay in this property again.
Mitchell Party
The property was in a nice location. The decor/furnishings, equipment and standard of cleaning was highly satisfactory. The easy of booking, helpfulness/courtesy of staff and overall customer service was highly satisfactory. I hope to book again.
Stephen Huntrod
The perfect property in the perfect location, the whole booking process was excellent, lovely welcome pack, thank you.
