    The front door to the property was not secure , lock on door faulty. The kitchen cupboards were overstocked for 2 people. And no room for guest in the kitchen cupboards for food. The crockery needed to be washed as food deposits were on plates and dishes in cupboards. The mattress was extremely hard.

    Slight down side there was nothing to tell us about parking, although facilities are there it is not allocated parking and no sign anywhere to say where we should park. Also the apartment opposite at times had what must have been a large dog that barked causing it to echo in the whole building at times. Other than these few points it was a very enjoyable week thankyou.

  • "The apartment was well equipped, spacious for a couple."

    The bathroom was good and the hot water was great. The cleanliness of apartment could have been better, lots of dust and the communal hallway had a musty smell. Although there was a notice in the apartment saying extra cleaning had been in place due to covid-19 and the remote controls, hairdryer etc had been sterilise and placed in plastic bags they had not! We brought our own bedding and towels, the bed was not very comfortable but we expected that. The juliet balcony was nice for the late afternoon sun however the occupants below often had a cigarette at their outside table so this filled our bedroom with cigarette smoke. The site was very good, the pub was just across the road, we did use the pub a couple of times but we did not like how many dogs there was in the dining area, people feeding them at the table! We saw one cock its leg on the wall and nobody bothered but we are not dog people. We thought that the apartment was OK but was expensive and the cleanliness let it down, the site was good and it's an ideal base to explore the Yorkshire coast. We would go again but would do more research.

  • "The apartment was in a good location, close to amenities and beach."

    It was exactly as advertised and we were happy with it, on the whole. The bay it’s self it’s fantastic with a gorgeous dog friendly beach 10 minutes walk away. Positives: Dog friendly Close to amenities As described WiFi worked well Nice views of courtyard from bedroom windows Negatives: There was a couple of areas which we felt let down the property, for example there was only around a quarter of a toilet roll in the bathroom, with no additional rolls provide. Firstly we didn’t feel this was hygienic (From a COVID perspective) as it was obviously left by the previous occupants who would have touched it, and it’s not as though it could have been sanitised afterwards. It was also inconvenient as there is no shop onsite. Also, there was only about 2 ‘squirts’ worth of liquid soap in the bathroom. Again this isn’t great especially at the moment when we’re all so keen to wash hands more often. We did pack hand sanitizer so it wasn’t a massive issue but again, it’s just the details that make you wonder what else has been missed. The fridge was extremely noisy, it seems like the fan isn’t working correctly and there was a constant and fairly loud hum. We were only there for 2 nights so didn’t bother us too much, but it probably would be annoying if staying for longer. We would definitely return to the bay, but we’d likely chose a different property next time around.

Normally no problems but cause I hadn't been to good the week before didn't take cleaning stuff due to what happened with the situation couldn't get much manage a bottle of bleach at least the sink was clean after that. Nothing to wash floor with overwise everything we needed. Just wished we didn't have to clean as soon as we got there. No we didn't ring cause we have heard horror stories about making complaints while still there.

About the location


Scarborough 7.7 miles; Bridlington 10.5 miles.

Filey is a traditional English seaside resort with a friendly atmosphere, offering a restful holiday, making an ideal place to stay for walkers and wildlife watchers at any time of the year. A real gem on the Yorkshire coast. A fishing town on the North East Coast, Filey has enjoyed a reputation of being a resort since Victorian times, set beside the magnificent Filey Bay, a long stretch of beautiful sand, with Filey Brigg and its shallow rockpools to the north. Filey Brigg is a low headland that protects Filey Bay and provides good bird watching and seawatching opportunities all year round. The 400 ft high Bempton Cliffs (RSPB Reserve) to the south of Filey Bay are home to over 250,000 seabirds in the summer. Gannets, kittiwakes, puffins, guillimots and razorbills all nest there. Gannets are regularly seen diving for fish in Filey Bay. The Brigg area is an ideal place to watch for common and rarer waders, seabirds and migrating warblers,finches and thrushes. As well as seabirds, seals and other marine life, such as porpoises dolphins and minke whales can be seen in the sea around the Brigg. The town itself seems almost caught in a time warp, retaining much of its character with individual shops, narrow paths and ginnels. There is a small coble landing, a slipway where local fishermen keep their boats, plus delightful beach chalets that can be hired through the summer months. The bay is edged with two promenades and there are various gardens, where brass bands play on a Sunday afternoon. This small town is family orientated, crazy golf and candy floss. Also in Filey there is the Filey Dams Nature Reserve, a wetland reserve where common and rare waders and wildfowl can be seen as well as autumn gatherings of swallows, sand martins and house martins. Also there is Parish Wood (just off Sycamore Avenue) an unexpected gem that offers a wealth of wildlife. Willow warbler, chiffchaff, blackcap and tree sparrows breed there and a wide variety of other species are regularly seen such as great spotted woodpeckers and sparrow hawks. Parish Wood also provides shelter and food for a wide range of migrant bird species such as goldcrests, pied and spotted flycatchers, warblers, finches, thrushes and woodcocks. A short drive brings you to the busier town of Scarborough where for family fun you can visit the Alpamare Waterpark, a waterpark unlike anything the UK has ever seen before, as well as plenty to explore and discover in this lovely area.
