  • "We had a fantastic reunion at Lonsdale Villa and were blown away with the space!"

    Obviously the listing states 11 bedrooms with en suites but we were also so pleased to find each room was spacious and well maintained and each en suite also had full showers and not just WCs. Only comment I would have is it felt that some of the facilities were only there after having been left by previous holiday makers (only partial toilet paper rolls and some en-suites without hand soap). Not a disaster as these are easily purchased but just would have been nice to know that we needed to include some of the basics on the shopping list! Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

  • "Claire and Natalie could not do enough for us."

    We had an amazing time. The only other feedback I would give is maybe add some weighing scales and whisk into the kitchen as it's hard work cooking for so many. Thank you so much for a fabulous time. X

  • "Lonsdale villa was the perfect place for our family holiday, we were celebrating our Diamond wedding (60yrs) our daughters 50th birthday and grandsons 29th birthday all on the same week."

    The Villa was spotless on arrival and we had a nice welcome pack with even a bottle of nice Spanish wine. All the bedrooms were comfortable and plenty of rooms in the villa for chilling out. It is only a short walk into town and even nearer to the tram that takes you down to the seashore. We had no problems in the villa so didn't need to contact Natalie but was contacted after we left to make sure all had gone well. As you will have noticed I gave a negative on the Accuracy of listing as when we booked we were told that there was off street parking and this was not so. Some days it was a problem as we had 6 cars for a few days. The listing has now been changed so you are made aware that it is only on street parking. All in all we had a great family holiday with some meals cooked in the large kitchen with just about everything you could need. I would definately recommend this villa as long as you know about the parking. Keith Sutcliffe

    Dear Guests Thank you for the lovely feedback on Lonsdale. The parking brief has been correctly addressed by Sykes previously. Hope to have you again. Regards Owner Property Owner

    Lots of space for the children to do their own thing whilst the parents enjoy the large living area. The location is within a 10 min walk to the centre of Scarborough. Natalie is very helpful and gave clear instructions on the property.

  • "We stayed at Lonsdale villa for a 70th Birthday celebration."

    A family of 12 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs. The villa was very clean, cosy and spacious. We were welcomed with a lovely hamper full of treats, thank you to the owners for that. We had everything we needed in the well equipped kitchen to do our own cooking, pots, pans cutlery and glassware, loads of fridge/freezer space & kitchen cupboard space, it was lovely to come together in the kitchen sitting at the island whilst cooking etc to chat about our plans & put the world to rights! The lounge and snug worked well for us were well furnished and comfortable, we enjoyed doing our own quizzes and bingo at the lovely big dining room table. All the bedrooms were well equipped, spacious and comfortable with lots of storage and all have en suites, the kids made good use of the games room on the top floor, It was a bonus to have the hot tub in the enclosed private garden area, great to relax in and the kids loved it too. The location was perfect, a nice short walk to the lovely Italian gardens and about ten minutes walk down to the front, we felt very safe in the area even at night time. Great communication from Natalie throughout who was quick to respond when we had an enquiry and soon solved our request efficiently. My only suggestion & just a thought would be to have some picnic ware for using in the hot tub, maybe a mop would be handy too for wet feet when coming back through the kitchen area from the hot tub. We enjoyed our stay so much that we hope to make it an annual event as a family and would recommend without hesitation, great value for money, 10/10 all round, thank you.

    Dear Guests, Thank you very much for the lovely feedback and we are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay at charming @Lonsdale Villa and beautiful Scarborough. We put our best efforts into making guests feel comfortable at our property and Natalie is very prompt in attending the guest's needs as you have appreciated. Thank you and hope to have you again.

  • "We on the whole had a really nice stay and the cottage almost fully met our needs."

    The property had plenty of space and was very clean. It was well situated at the top of the cliffs with a fairly short walk down to the beach. for a group family get together it was brilliant. We would have given more for comfort and facilities but we had a few minor issues with some of the lights one which flickered all the time in the living room and one that only turned on if you pulled it at an exact angle, the toilet in the downstairs bed room. We went the shops to buy bigger cups and glasses as even thought there are loads they are really tiny which will have worked fine for a b and b but not so practical for people staying in groups. We also felt the property guide could have done with a bit more information in, especially with regards to how to prepare for departure. I do feel the listing is misleading with regards to parking, as it implies there is plenty of OFF ROAD parking and this is not the case. There is no off road parking and some of the near by roads apparently are permit only, although this may be seasonal as we saw no signs. This did not cause us a massive problem but did mean that cars were not parked within site of the property and I think this could be challenging in summer.

    Thank you for your feedback We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Lonsdale Villa. We do agree that the property is in fantastic coastal location and perfect for families and large groups at any time of the year. Thank you for your additional comments, we do take all of these on board to ensure all our customers have a great experience and customer feedback is very important to us. We are sorry about the listing information regarding parking. The owner had asked Sykes to update this however this hadn't been amended. The website does reflect the parking situation accurately now so thank you for pointing this out to us. We hope you had a great time and look forward to welcoming you back in the future Property Owner

  • "It was a very well located and facilitated property that had plenty of room for all 19 of us."

    It was very clean and comfortable as well and we had a lovely food hamper waiting for us. The only issue was all the different correspondence I received, from either Sykes, the cleaning company or the actual owners by text and email. It was very confusing and mixed messages were sent e.g we were led to believe we could check in at 3pm but the day before arrival we were told check-in wasn't until 4pm.

    Dear Guests, thank you so much for the lovely feedback on the property and we try our best to maintain the same standards in future too. The check-in time has always been at 3:00pm. Our sincere apologies on the communication difference and we will ensure this is appropriately addressed between the agencies. Thank you for the feedback which would make us improve every time.

    The villa was a street away from the beach and beautiful views!!! Literally a 15 minute walk away from the pier All rooms had working electric showers Heating was no issue at all Lovely kitchen for us to cook in (which we did A LOT OF being a typical Asian family!) Natalie was MORE than helpful in addressing any issues we had, always ready on call or message to solve any issues and bless her she even dropped some snacks off! We were welcomed with a lovely welcoming basket full of snacks already! Kids fell in love with the place we stuck them up in the second floor which had its own sitting room, games room with ps4, bathroom and a huge kingsize bedroom The layout of the villa Is like an intriguing maze, everyone had plenty of space to themselves, huge dining room area we could all sit as a family (18 people), baby cot and high chair was provided for the little ones, plenty of cutlery and dinner sets for the whole family and a perfectly working dish washer! Oh and there’s a utility room with extra fridges and freezers, washing machines and a dryer!
