  • "Gillian is very helpful and goes beyond what we expected, the layout of the flat is really good and accessible to most things like the beach and town."

    Parking can be a bit of a problem but we were lucky enough to get a spot right outside the flat. As we were leaving we meet a neighbour who had lived in Scarborough all his life and could tell you many a thing about how it was years a go.

  • "The flat was immaculate, light, bright and warm."

    The owner was extremely helpful, talking me through the heating system, the bins, giving ideas of local places. Because there was no one in the flat before us, and no one directly following us, she allowed us to arrive early and leave late, which was extremely helpful. Due to restrictions, this was our first break away for 15 months. All covid secure systems were in place and everything felt totally safe. The owner also left us milk and biscuits which was really kind. We had a sea view from the dining table, and the area was extremely quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended for a very good value stay in a great spot.

  • "Very comfortable flat."

    Every effort has been made to make this one of the best holiday destinations I've ever been to. Lovely clean white sheets in an immaculate bedroom, exceptionally bright. Well equipped kitchenette with many extras, milk, tea and coffee provided together with all cleaning products. Very comfy settee with a nice view out of the window to the sea. Very good wi-fi , strong signal and a good sized tv. Though the shower room is small, the shower is excellent for a large bloke like me, with 2 sets of fluffy towels provided. Car parking tickets available for parking, I got mine outside but suspect in summer it would be more difficult. Easy to walk to nearby shops and food establishments.

  • "Very clean accommodation, everything provided."

    Covid restrictions all met with clear guidance displayed on posters and information in the pack the host left, which left us feeling reassured we were staying in a safe environment and everything possible had been done to meet the health and safety requirements for all concerned. Host was very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and Gillian was very mindful of our concerns when the second lockdown came into force and did everything possible to ensure she found answers to our questions to see if we were able to stay on holiday which we were.

  • "The apartment was very clean and comfortable."

    It is in a great position close to the sea and there are local shops 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Gillian was brilliant. We spoke on the phone when I arrived and she made sure that I knew where everything was in the flat, she even called me after my holiday to ask me how I got on. That personal touch makes a big difference. I would definitely recommend staying at Coast View if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay in a great location.

  • "The property is well positioned and both North bay and South bay are easily accessible."

    The flat is comfortable. The kitchen area and the bathroom are both quite small and space is limited. The majority of what is needed however is in the kitchen and plenty of towels were provided. We really enjoyed our stay. The dining table is placed in the bay window which gives a view of the sea. It can be difficult to find a place to park on the road where the property is but imagine that gets easier away from high season. A parking permit is required (which are left in the property) and allows you to park in nearby streets. Traffic wardens do patrol and leave penalty notices so don't be tempted to leave the car without a valid permit in it!

  • "Coast View was beautifully presented by the very helpful, attentive & hfriendly owner, Gillian."

    The flat is a short walk from Scarborough Town Centre but also located overlooking the North Bay with easy access for walking to other features and the South Bay. Gillian’s advice on local matters was very welcome and useful, as were the changes of bedding, towels etc. halfway way through our 2 week stay. Despite the consecutive weather storms, we were very warm & comfortable!

  • "Lovely flat in a great location in Scarborough."

    10 minutes walk to town centre and about 15 to the main seafront. The flat is warm and cozy and cleaned to a high standard with everything provided that you could need, it’s compact but makes a good use of the available space. The bed is comfy and there is plenty of storage in the bedroom. The owner was great to deal with, always available and left some lovely welcome gifts. She was also very helpful in what were very difficult circumstances for us when she had no obligation to do so. 5 stars all round from us.

  • "Being between North & South Beach Coast View was in the perfect position to explore Scarborough."

    The flat was warm and comfortable and afforded a view of North Beach from the dining area. The property and the kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed. Gillian was a lovely welcoming host, living locally she is knowledgeable and is able to answer any questions about the area regarding eating out and attractions. It showed that she cared for her property and made sure we had everything to enjoy our stay at Coast View. The shared entrance and hallway was clean and tidy. A car parking zone permit and a disc for other zones was provided and we found, albeit late in the season no issues with parking.

    The property is in a great location with the beach and castle only a few minutes walk away. The flat was spotless and very comfortable. Gillian was so lovely - we unfortunately didn't get to meet her in person but she made us feel so welcome throughout our visit. We hope to return next year!

  • "The flat was fine and clean apart from the carpet which ran through out the bedroom, living room and passageway."

    This was very grubby, looked like it had been cleaned but was stained over large areas. A shame as it really put me off the flat, the rest of which was clean and well decorated.

    I'm sorry to hear that the carpet was not it's usual standard of cleanliness during your stay at Coast View. I really appreciate your feedback and have since washed the carpet thoroughly with a carpet cleaner so it's now nice and clean again. Thank you for your comments. Property Owner

    ! The apartment itself is ideal for a lovely relaxing getaway for two. It has everything you need, was spotlessly clean, comfortable, decorated to a lovely standard & we didn't need anything other than our personal belongings & shopping. Parking permits were also included so no need need to worry that either. A 10 min walk into town, a lovely pub 'The Scarborough Arms' 2 mins round the corner, nice walks to the castle & round the tops & lovely & quiet. Gillian the owner genuinely couldn't do enough for us & she made our stay feel like we were 'home'. We would absolutely recommend to anyone wanting a nice relaxing break & we can't wait to go back.

  • "The apartment was spotless, bed very comfortable and Gillian the owner could not have done more to make our break."

    The downfall and I am so sorry to say this for Gillian, she is a lovely lady, is that the promotion for this apartment is very misleading and I believe Gillian has no part in this. Yes there is a sea view, up the street and through the right hand side of the bay window and it is just the rails and cars and a bit of sea. Not what I expected. I should have know better than book with Sykes having past experience with you. Let down yet again. So sorry Gillian because you were wonderful and could not have done more.

    Comfy sofa, TV with built in DVD. Broadband connection was excellent. Bed was lovely and comfy and so were the pillows. Kitchen facilities were excellent, everything was provided, plenty of plates, cutlery, saucepans and baking trays etc. Added bonus was tea/coffee/sugar and other essential were provided, as were things like oil, salt and pepper, sauce etc. Washing up liquid/paper towels/sponges and cleaning products supplied. Gillian was a great hostess and advised of things like the rubbish and recycling and how to use the heating etc. Only thing we had a problem with was the key safe outside the front door, a little bit old and fiddly and needs updating to a digital/push button key safe. Excellent place to stay.
