  • "We came on holiday with our grandchildren and we were very happy with the facilities offered at Elizabeth House."

    It is a comfortable holiday home with plenty of room. With Hall Garth Park, a play park, Hornsea Mere and the beach all within walking distance it was a holiday the grandchildren enjoyed, which means it's a big thumbs up from all of us.

  • "Lovely house with everything we needed."

    However, we are not impressed by the builders gutting the house attached to us (row of terraced properties) This started outside mid week through our stay- noisily filling a skip at the rear garage 8am onwards, the following day banging inside the house and they also arrived on the Friday am and started work. We did not expect to pay over £1,000 for a holiday home to be disturbed by builders. We were unable to sit outside for those 3 mornings for breakfast.

  • "Lovely house and great location."

    Short walk to shops, pubs and the sea front. Owner was 10/10 with communication and very helpful. All tea, coffee and condiments were there for us which lasted the week and also enough toilet paper too!

  • "There is strictly no parking at the back of the house and this needs updating."

    Yiu can only use the back entrance for loading and unloading. It is on a busy road and the traffic is noisy. Double glazing would help, certainly in the front bedroom. Towels were provided but were rather small. Kitchen is well equipped. Owner helpful and allowed us to take three dogs.

  • "Excellent location for park, shops, bars and beach."

    Very dog friendly. No problem parking. Not used to road noise but soon got used to it. We would return again due to its proximity to everything you need on foot. Had great holiday.

  • "There is no parking up the narrow alleyway at the back of the house."

    This should be removed from the description. This is the only drawback to this lovely property which we have visited 4 times. We managed to get a slot up the nearby street but parking tight and we dare not move our car for the duration of the holiday.

  • "The house itself is lovely and generally well equipped."

    The kitchen had everything we could’ve possibly needed. One small but very useful addition to the property would be a clothes airer - the weather was so bad we couldn’t hang washing on the line. Well situated for the Mere and the town and only a ten minute walk to the seafront. A lovely welcome pack was provided and very much appreciated (great to have a cup of tea after a long drive and not even need to unpack) and it was nice to have the bird feeders in the garden that had obviously been filled before we arrived. We loved watching the sparrows have their breakfast whilst we had ours. The only disappointing thing (and it’s quite a big thing) is that there is no off-street parking. The listing suggests that this is available and it was definitely one of my criteria when looking for a holiday rental. I have an autistic son and off-street parking makes it safer for him and easier for me. We managed the situation ok but I really think this amenity needs to be removed from the listing - we were able to pull up behind the house to unload but then had to find on street parking and with double yellow lines in front of the property it meant trying to find a space in a side street, often a few minutes walk from the property.

  • "This house is wonderful, lots of space, lovely and clean."

    The owner had left us coffee, tea + milk plus lots of loo rolls and cleaning things which was very thoughtful. The property was very close to the town centre and an easy walk to the seafront. I would recommend this property to anyone.

    Although on a main road, it wasn't noisy and was extremely well situated to walk into town, the park and the sea front. The house has every that you need, was spotlessly clean and very warm and comfortable ( we visited in January). Would definitely recommend.

  • "Fantastic large, comfortable house in a great location."

    Stayed here as a party of 6, 3 generations and the house suited us all perfectly. Plenty of space, room for us all to sit comfortably in the sitting room and round the table. Nice, big bedrooms. Very well equipped kitchen, not that you need to us it! So many pubs, restaurants, cafes and takeaways within 5 minutes walk. Hornsea really has everything you could want right on the doorstep of this house. It's not possible to park at the property but we had no problem parking 2 vehicles on the next side street only a minutes walk away. Our children loved the play park, skate park and zip wire in Hall Garth Park, and also visits to Bugtopia, The Deep and 10 pin bowling.

  • "Elizabeth House is a well presented property that made an ideal base for our visit to the area."

    Hornsea, with all its amenities, is a short walk away - the best way to the seafront is through a park, ideal for the dogs. The only minor quibble is the curtains in the main bedroom let in too much light - but then we're used to a blackout blind at home... All in all an enjoyable stay,

    So hard to say! The house was gorgeous; huge rooms, spotlessly clean, homely, full of so many kitchen implements - pots, pans, plates, glasses etc.... double what normally have so weren't always washing up - dishwasher anyway, welcome pack unexpected but very welcone after long journey. The setting was wonderful, so close to hornsea centre and seafront - walked everywhere and didn't use car for 4days. Beach beautiful, even swam in sea. In fact, we swam, jogged, rowed on the mere, walked and beach combed every day and all loved it. It was a delightful house which lead to a perfect family holiday. Can't wait to come again. The Wright's (Bristol), the Morgan's (Lincs) and the Hales (Herts).
