  • "What a lovely clean apartment in a fantastic location on south bay."

    Town is a 5 mile walk across the bridge and Scarborough spar 5 minutes walk which is located on the sea front. Lounge lovely and spacious and a nice large bedroom and a twin bedroom. Very quiet so no noise issued. I maybe would rethink the welcome pack compared to what we have experienced at other locations it was poor so unless improved I wouldn't bother as it's not expected ( pack of 3 custard cream biscuits, 3 bourbon biscuits, an individual marmalade for 1 and a mini soap) didn't quite get the combination. But lovely stay and we will be back.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment and wouldn’t hesitate to rebook for ourselves and recommend the property to others."

    It was lovely and clean, well-stocked with everything we could possibly need for a comfortable week’s stay and the bed was extremely comfortable. Loved the night and day blinds and will be ordering some for myself! Richard sorted a problem with the shower quickly and efficiently. Those staying for an extended period might wish there was a washing machine but it’s really not a problem for a week away. Many thanks, it was fab!

  • "The property was very well equipped and very comfortable."

    The proximity to the promenade and to the shops was excellent, and the parking which was usually available directly outside the apartment was great. The Scarborough sci-fi weekend with a Stormtrooper, Daleks, Darth Vader and various other characters in attendance made for an interesting dimension to a seaside visit.

    Close to bus routes to town , unfortunately cliff lift still out of order and shuttle bus was not running. Would not recommend that anyone with walking dificulties attempts the walk down to the sea as it is very strenuous and no benches to sit on, rather get bus to town and then from there bus to seafront.

    Comfy beds (all quite firm), beautiful bathroom and a well equipped kitchen - perfect. Fantastic location, close to the South Bay amenities - the cliff lift wasn’t working so it’s quite a walk down to the seafront and a trek back up but great views and plenty of seats en route. Would definitely recommend.

  • "My partner and I go to Scarborough yearly for a short break with my sister, who has special needs, we normally go to The Sands but decided to try somewhere new."

    We were a bit worried about the location of Apartment 1 although we knew roughly where it was. We shouldn’t have bothered it’s in an ideal situation close to both the town and the seafront. The car stayed parked up all week which was a great treat in itself. My sister doesn’t “do” walking! Ha ha! Lazy the word is. Parking vouchers were provided for us. The apartment itself is beautiful. Clean, beautifully decorated to a very high standard with beautiful decorative touches you’d expect to see in a building of that age and stature. It is extremely comfortable and stocked well with lots of bits and bobs you may have forgotten to pack in your bag. That’s a nice touch. I can’t recommend Apartment 1 enough. The fact that our weather was fantastic added to the experience. The rain was torrential one day and kept us in until about 4pm being there was no hardship as the apartment is just so comfortable with a tv in both bedrooms too so we watched our programmes and my sister watched hers until it was “safe” to go out. What lovely apartment. It was an absolute pleasure to be there I only wish we had booked longer.
