  • "Disappointed that we didn’t know that there was no phone or internet coverage."

    Fridge icebox iced up. Packet of chips left and couldn’t remove. Oven not clean. Used once and then ate out. Only managed to park on once. Had to park round the corner. The apartment was clean on arrival but the furniture and beds were of poor quality. We left a day early.

  • "Great place to stay for our family."

    We'll equipped and clean. Love love location within the bay resort. 2 mins from the pub, shop and the swimming pool. 10 mins walk to the beach.

  • "The property was full of potential and yet it missed the mark completely."

    Covid-19 was a golden opportunity to showcase what you have to a new market - folks who always holiday abroad. This was the chance to suggest that perhaps a UK holiday can be just as good and no effort was made to seize that chance. The en-suite bathroom showed how little care and thought had been put into this place. There was no hot water in the shower, the lock on the door was broken, there was no shelf in the shower so if you were prepared to have a cold one, there was nowhere to rest your soap or shampoo. There was a charging point for razors and toothbrushes but no shelf on which to rest a razor or toothbrush (or soap, or deodorant, or shaving gel or anything else one might put in a bathroom). There was no toilet roll holder and (seriously) the toilet was in the wrong place. Whoever designed the bathroom failed to take into account that the towel rail would protrude from the wall and so the positioning of the toilet needed to be from the edge of the towel rail rather than from the wall. The result is that you practically sit on the towel rail to use the toilet. A hook on the bathroom door would also have been very welcome. The main bathroom was much better but still no toilet roll holder and a hook on the door for bathrobes would be good. The double bed was the worst part. A cheap mattress on a cheap frame which basically dared you to try to sleep. We took on the challenge and lost. You can get away with a short size double if and only if there is no bar at the foot of the bed. This means that your feet can dangle over the end. If you put metal bars on the end then that size of bed will really only work for people who are in no way tall. The frames of the bunk beds were cheap too. Everything was squeaky and if anyone in any bed turned in the night, anyone sharing the room would know about it. The resort itself is another seriously missed opportunity. Aside from the pharmacy, there isn’t a single shop onsite. You need a car to buy so much as a pint of milk or a loaf of bread. The fridge isn’t big enough to take a week’s shopping so the net result is that you drive to town each day to buy basic essentials. There is nowhere to buy a bucket and spade or a postcard, you can’t even buy an ice cream on the beach. It really feels as if there is an aversion to making money here. I arrived with plenty of cash and a willingness to spend it and the overwhelming impression I received was “having fleeced you something chronic with the quality of the apartment, we couldn’t possibly give you anything else to spend money on.” The one exception to this was a rather ropey tennis court which (I kid thee not) cost £10 per hour! You don’t pay that much for a decent court never mind a ropey one. Then they had lines of people waiting to go into the swimming pool actually on the court while you are playing. If two adults who know how to hit the ball were playing, someone could have been seriously hurt. I would (genuinely) not return if you paid me. After a week without sleep, I’m just glad to be home.

  • "The accommodation is in serious need of some TLC."

    Very disappointed to find the (leather) sofas coming apart and unable to sit on, had to purchase throws to be able to sit down. Nearly all blinds broken/twisted/without parts. Bedlinen old and clearly been used lots although at least clean. Main bathroom sink blocked. En-suite shower only has cold water. Rang office and contacted number of property owner and neither willing to help. So just got on with holiday best we could. BUT very disappointed, have spent 7 summer holidays at The Bay and this was THE ONLU accommodation we’ve ever had issues with. Would definitely NOT recommend your company as customer service was terrible. Very unhappy holiday maker

  • "Excellent location for East Coast activities."

    Good pool and some entertainment provided for children, even at Easter. Poor WiFi and mobile reception in this area.

  • "Sofas shabby and most of the blinds broken."

    Could do with some home comforts ie coat hooks in hall way and on back of bathroom doors. Holders in shower cubicle for shampoo etc. Tourist info would have been a nice touch along with some games and dvd’s and a tv instruction manual. The kitchen was well equipped but we didn’t find the apartment cozy enough.

  • "Spotlessly clean cottage on a fantastic development."

    En suite shower was a surprise bonus! Great to have the little shop/pharmacy and pub on site. Struggled slightly with the bed as I'm really tall and it was quite short but really a tiny issue on an otherwise great break. Make sure to go to reception for a pool pass and a timetable of activities.

About the location

FILEY

Scarborough 7.5 miles; Bridlington 11 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, with donkey rides available on the beach, children’s play areas, 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.
