  • "Brilliant position for a walk to the beach and town and bus station as we used the excellent bus service to Whitby."

    The beach was great and a sea swim with a hot drink at the Beachcomber cafe on the beach great.

  • "I am not normally one to leave reviews but after my stay ay the Carisbrooke House apartment I felt compelled to write a reveiw."

    My wife and I had booked the apartment over the bank holiday weekend as a break away and to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Apart from the great weather the apartment was absolutely fabulous and like a home from home. The apartment was well maintained and really clean and had all the essentials you would need for a stay away from home. The added bonus as mentioned in other reviews is the use of off road parking which enabled us to leave the car parked the whole weekend and explore the delights of Scarborough without having to think about parking. The owner Andy is a really nice chap who spent time going through all we needed to know about the property and also useful information about what to do in Scarborough plus where the local amenities could be found. All in all a totally enjoyable experience and stress free stay. We will defintley be comming back to visit and stay here again. Thank you Andy from Mike & kathryn

    Hi Mike and Kathryn Thank you for your fantastic review. I'm so pleased you got the relaxing stress free weekend we spoke about on the phone and that the apartment was up to your expectations. Kind regards Andy Property Owner

    However lots of positives - Andy the owner couldnt have been more helpful or welcoming, apartment very well laid out, whilst the freezer is described as table top it has adequate space - no issue really. Parking space absolute bonus - proximity to all of the amenities Bars, Restaurants makes it easy to enjoy what Scarborough and local are offersoffers. Brlliant experence - thankyou.

    Hi Mike Many thanks for taking the time to write your review and for the lovely comments on your stay at Carisbrooke House Appt 6. I appreciate your comment about WIFI, although the summary on Sykes Cottages website does sign post this. WIFI is something that I'm considering for next year, once things quieten down this year. The apartment is on the second floor from ground level as described and can be seen from the pictures. Kind regards Andy Property Owner

    The situation of the flat is ideal for the town or beach which are only 5-10 minutes away. The bed is really comfortable and everything in the flat makes for a real pleasant stay

  • "Carisbrooke House is ideally located to both town and beach."

    The apartment is nicely furnished, and kitchen has everything needed for a self catering stay. Andy provided the necessary information with regard to operating instructions re: heating, water, local hostileries etc during the key collection phone call. The parking space provided with this apartment is a real bonus. During our stay, the building was quiet and did not give us any cause for complaint. The building is an older property, and as such has character related to age. Care needs to be taken when walking through the communal garden in poor weather due to uneven steps (this is in keeping with the local area), however, it is only a short detour to walk round via the road. We would definitely stay here again.

    It was very comfortable and very near to the centre of Scarborough so you could just walk through the garden and in 10 minutes you are at the sea. We did have a problem with the washing machine but it was fixed within 2 days which was great. The owner Andy was very helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Overall a very enjoyable stay and if we go to Scarborough again, we will definitely try to stay here.

    Thanks very much for your positive feedback. I'm sorry about the washing machine but glad it got fixed quickly and didn't spoil your stay. I look forward to hearing from you if you stay in Scarborough again. Property Owner

  • "We just enjoyed a very pleasant stay at this apartment."

    We were very clear from the listing as to what to expect and so we brought tea/coffee and our own wifi hotspot. There is also a washing machine provided but as we only stayed 3 nights we didn't need it, but it would be have been really handy if we'd stayed for longer. There's everything you could possibly need, it's very well kitted out and even has it's own off-road parking space! The whole place felt really cosy and homely, the pictures don't do it justice. The only downside I could see was the stairs. If you have mobility issues at all please be aware that there are a lot of stairs. It wasn't a huge deal to us though and is mentioned in the listing. Would we come back?- absolutely yes!

    Many thanks for your positive feedback. It is great to know you found the apartment cosy and in some respects better than the pictures. We are also glad you found that the accuracy of the description was good especially that there are steps as we wouldn't want that to spoil anybodies holiday. Property Owner

    He even left us a bottle of Prosecco which we thought was a lovely gesture. The property is in a great location and has everything you need. The only improvements I would suggest are some hooks to hang coats, and also a larger mirror in the bedroom. Other than that we had a great stay.

  • "27709 is a basic apartment."

    It served our needs whilst staying there for a long weekend visiting family in the area but certainly not in the same class as other Sykes properties we have stayed in. After a 3 hour car journey and stairs up to the top of the property tea/coffee facilities would have been expected but there was no welcome at all Workmen arrived to undertake work in the bathroom on our departure date at 9 am this made our packing up quite difficult some notice of this intrusion should have been made previously We certainly wont be returning to Carisbrooke House

    Thanks for your comments. Sykes have rated the property as 4 ticks based on the facilities provided. As it is not mentioned under amenities, tea/coffee facilities are not provided and we are sorry that you expected this on your arrival. The workmen were booked to start after 10am on your day of departure and I have sent an apology for their early arrival directly to yourself Property Owner

  • "The apartment was amazing, exceeded all expectations!"

    The photographs on the website don't do it justice, the lounge area and bedroom were far larger than expected but still really cosy - like a home from home. The only criticism I have is that with some of the ceilings and beams being low and with me being quite tall, I did bang my head a few times. Aside from that everything was perfect, the location was remote enough for both me and my fiance (he proposed in the apartment!!) as there was a 5 minute shortcut straight to the south bay beach. I wouldn't recommend this apartment for older couples as it can put quite a strain on your legs walking everywhere, but if like us you enjoy being active and walking about you'll do just fine. The apartment provided facilities to suit all needs although I'm not sure what use a washing machine is if there is nowhere to dry clothes (luckily we brought enough of everything to last). Will definitely be re booking next year!
