    Very luxurious and has everything anyone could need. Beds are super comfy, beautiful decor throughout. Perfect location, easy to walk to town and restaurants. Thanks very much for a fabulous long weekend. Will definitely be back!!!

  • "Regatta House is a beautiful property with exceptional quality furnishings and well decorated."

      A lovely welcome gift was well received. It is in a brilliant location on the west cliff within close walking distance to everything in Whitby. The lounge has plenty of sofas and a large screen TV. The dining room has a large table which seats 8, a log burner and espresso coffee machine. The kitchen is a long galley style, which can be a little tight on space if there are a couple of people in, but offers everything you need for your stay and more. The crockery, pans, utensils etc are a very good quality and plenty. There's a small toilet at the end of the kitchen behind a sliding door. It is questionable about hygiene of it's location but is very handy. The small courtyard has seating and a large table if the weather is nice and is secure so ideal for our dog. The four bedrooms are very spacious, have very comfortable beds and each have a bathroom which is excellent.  Although two of the bedrooms do not have en-suite as such but the bathroom is located very close. The second floor bathrooms are very large. All furnishings are of very good quality.  A couple of small points are the first floor bathroom is lacking a mirror and the parking is not ideal if needing to park outside the property.  Parking is very tight to the front of the house but there's plenty around the area and permits are provided.  Overall this property is exceptional. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely return to Regatta House.

  • "Beautiful house."

    The sinks in some of the bathrooms were a bit inadequate and really only suitable for hand washing. Also it would be helpful to have a small mirror in the bathroom next to the first bedroom on the first floor.

    Hi Susan, thank you so much for your feedback - we will add a mirror to this bathroom - it's a very good point! Property Owner

    Top Quality! The beds and the pillows were fab!! We were here to celebrate a 70th birthday and couldn't have chosen a better place than Regatta House to explore the delightful Whitby. We will definitely be back!

  • "Regatta House is simply an oasis of calm and comfort in the bustling town of Whitby."

    It is close enough to everything, from lovely brunch and coffee stops, to the impressive Abbey and the beach making the car largely redundant. The level of comfort and standard of decor within the house is second to none. Everything has been thought of, from the well stocked and practical kitchen to the luxurious bedrooms and lovely bathrooms. I wish we could have stayed longer!

    Thanks for your lovely feedback Jo - it’s very much appreciated and we’re delighted you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "The parking was a complete nightmare and the correct parking permits were not there to display which caused a lot of stress in the night of arrival."

    We had to unload our vehicle and park somewhere else away in the first night. Was not a nice start. Then a rep came a a day or so later and gave us the permits that should have been for us in the property.

  • "A fabulous house with all the amenities you could wish for - very clean and comfortable."

    The only downside was we had to park one of our vehicles at the leisure centre.

    Hi Elizabeth - Thankyou so much for your feedback, it’s very much appreciated. We are really pleased you enjoyed the house. We decided to provide a parking permit for the Leisure Centre nearby as a back up should road side parking be difficult but appreciate it’s a few minutes away. Thanks again! Property Owner

  • "What a fantastic holiday home!"

    Regatta House truly was a home from home and had everything we could have possibly needed. The cleanest, most well-equipped, luxurious property we’ve stayed in. Hidden in the back streets, it’s a real gem. Whilst parking can be a little bit of an issue initially, it didn’t make much of a difference once the car was unloaded. A 10 minute (downhill!) walk to the harbour and beach and a 5 minute walk from the pavilion and Whitby’s famous Wishbone. A week really wasn’t long enough and we would definitely return. A fantastic, spacious property that served our young family perfectly during our week away.

    Thankyou for your lovely review Georgina, it is really appreciated and we are delighted you enjoyed the house so much. We’d love to host you again if you ever come back to Whitby. Property Owner

  • "All below were reported to Sykes: Items missing from kitchen."

    Nasty stain on carpet. Door leaks when it rains. Lies in the listing- car parking permits and en-suite’s missing. Fraudulent advertising.(listing has now be altered after our complaint) Sykes were no use when complaining. Paid for luxury- got less than advertised.

    Thankyou very much for your feedback, it is very much appreciated. It is our 1st year of running Regatta House and we are passionate about getting it right. We are delighted with the reviews we’ve received so far both online and in our comments book, they are better than we could have wished for. For this reason it is hugely disappointing to us that you didn’t enjoy your stay with us and we are sorry about this. As you know we have 4 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms so a dedicated bathroom for each bedroom - given that 2 are accessed from within the bedrooms and 2 immediately outside we have taken your feedback on board and tweaked our descriptions slightly. Car parking is a difficult one to get right - we have opted to offer parking for 2 cars and offer that in a combination of scratch cards for on-street parking and also parking in a nearby car park as from our experience it has been good to have both options. We do make it clear that parking is never guaranteed and on a 1st come 1st served basis but there is parking outside the house and very closely if available. I do understand that the Yorkshire Coastal Cottages team did respond by bringing you some additional scratch cards which we are pleased about, we have found it very helpful for our guests that they are just around the corner to help out when necessary. Our carpets are brand new so it is disappointing that that you reported a stain and items missing from the kitchen - our housekeeping team do a great job of tending to these things and we’ve had great feedback as to how well stocked the kitchen - we have not been able to find a stain or any items from the kitchen missing but following your feedback we have added a pizza cutter, thank you for bringing this to our attention.

  • "We have had an absolutely fantastic stay here in Regatta House."

    The quality of decor is of a high standard and fixtures and fittings are top notch. The little touches ie. milk in fridge, welcome pack etc were a nice touch! So much to see and do locally (without the use of the cars) which is fantastic in our opinion. Would definitely come back and stay here again! Thank you Regatta.

  • "Regatta House is a beautifully presented, comfortable home."

    The area is very peaceful at night so that, combined with comfortable beds, meant we slept really well. We appreciated the milk and tea bag supply along with local delights on arrival. We found pretty much everything we needed during the week. The only thing we couldn't find (maybe tucked away somewhere?) were some board games. Food wise, all bar one of the places we went to locally were great with friendly service- particularly Cosa Nostra, Emma's Diner, The Magpie and Sherlocks. The not so good one? Don't be fooled by the plaque outside! We didn't stray far from Whitby but Robin Hood's Bay, Staithes and Saltburn-by-the-Sea are worth a visit although the first two are very hilly. The walk alongside the beach from West Cliff towards Sandsend is beautiful and extremely flat once you get down. Thank you Regatta House, thank you Whitby for a wonderful, memorable stay. Our 4th time in Whitby and favourite accommodation by far! We hope to be back and would highly recommend Regatta House.

    I found the whole experience of booking our holiday with Sykes Cottages and Regatta House very positive . The central location in Whitby also means you can enjoy the town without having to drive everywhere . We were a large family of seven but there is enough room for everyone at Regatta House.
