    • “Lovely apartment. Clean and well maintained. Short walk into characterful Whitby town. Overlooking harbour.”

    • “Location good for getting into Whitby and secure parking was an added advantage. Suggest however that you up-date your web site to let potential customers know that WiFi is now available. I e-mailed you before our visit and your answer was no WiFi at the property. However, according to the visitor comment book, it was installed recently, January I think? Sue & Trevor Wright”

    Mr Wright, Stafford, October 2015

    • “We were very pleased with the apartment - lovely position and very nice inside. We shall certainly use Sykes Cottages again.”

    Mrs Jardine, Hampton, July 2015

    • “"The Moorings position, comfort and overall standard was excellent. The secure parking and views of the River Esk out of the windows was a true bonus."”

    Mr Lawrence, Coventry, April 2015

    • “Fantastic location and fantastic property, will definitely be back.”

    Mr Mackenzie, Reem Island, April 2015

    • “The complimentary wine and chocolates was a very lovely touch. The apartment was a good size and very clean. We chose the property based on the private parking, which we found very handy, and saved us having to find parking in Whitby centre, that I presume would have cost quite a bit for the four days. Overall a very nice stay and would consider coming again / recommend to a friend.”

    Miss Church, Barnoldswick, November 2014

    • “Great apartment within easy walking distance of Whitby, secure car parking was a bonus, as was the complimentary wine and chocolates (thanks very much) We have been to Whitby before and this is probably the best place we have stayed in. There are plenty of places to eat which cater for every taste, our favourite is the Cosa Nostra. There is great walking to be had from the doorstep including the Cleveland Way which you can do in sections and return by bus. I would definitely recommend this property.”

    Mr Simpson, Warrington, September 2014

    • “The property was in a great, peaceful location with amazing views. Private parking bay was also a bonus, we couldn't fault it.”

    Ms Wallace, Sheffield, August 2014

    • “Great accommodation and location; we would definitely recommend.”

    Mr Franey, Sheffield, August 2014

    • “This accommodation was excellent and in a very good location over looking the river Esk.”
