  • "We had a great stay."

    The 1700 check in a little late, but we were accommodated with an earlier time. The Lady Hilda was just lovely.

  • "Apartment was so lovely it’s our second time stopping at the engine shed, it was clean and the welcome goodies were lovely."

    Only downside was there wasn’t enough car parking, some other apartments had taken 2 cars using up the spaces. On street parking was also difficult as it was Goth weekend. Would love to go back but sadly the apartments are up for sale.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. That said, the apartment sits on the tracks by the station, so expect plenty of noise and trains passing at eye level.

  • "We decided to book this apartment because it’s something a bit different regarding the original use of the building and its position."

    We were not disappointed, the rooms were very clean, modern and well equipped. The private car park was a great convenience. The location of the apartments is ideal, a very short walk to the centre of things. It was a pleasure watching the steam trains pass by. Would recommend to anyone.

  • "I'm afraid we were somewhat disappointed by the end of the week."

    On entering the 'Sheds' we noticed that the corridors and stairwell were not clean and it looked as though they had not seen a vacuum cleaner for some time, it was the same when we left one week later. First impressions of our accommodation was good and also thought the car parking situation was secure. We understand that we have been through a time of Covid restrictions etc but felt that having to to strip beds etc at the end of our stay was a bit over the top during current times. We have travelled to the Far East, the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and several places in the UK in recent times and we have never been subject to doing housekeeping work at the end of a holiday. My wife used to be a housekeeper for many years and it was her duty to carry out those tasks, not the guests. We usually go to Whitby every year and will continue to do so, but regrettably, we will not be back to the Engine Sheds.

    Apartment was phenomenally clean and it didn’t feel like anyone else had stopped in it. We felt like we were the first guests to use the place. Great central location to explore the area. Really nice little touches that made our stay feel a little more special were the flowers, coffee, bread, biscuits etc that were in the kitchen when we arrived. We had such a relaxing stay. Would recommend to anyone.

    Spotlessly clean all over, everything you need is in the kitchen and the bed is extremely comfortable, if we could give one piece of constructive advice (certainly not criticism) maybe a larger sofa would be a good addition. But to be honest faultless throughout.

    Good facilities in the kitchen, comfortable beds and high end fittings in the bathroom. The living area would have benefitted from a reading lamp, we feel, but apart from that we were highly satisfied with the accommodation. Parking facilities in the garage worked out well, with key fob entry to both the parking and apartment. Felt very secure.

    Sykes handled our enquiry and booking with great efficiency and the whole process was very smooth. The apartment was beautifully furnished and very comfortable, the Christmas decorations gave it a lovely festive feel. It was spotlessly clean. We have stayed at other apartments in this building and found that they are all furnished and maintained to the same high standard. Oh yes, and the super king size beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in.

    All done out very nicely with all you need, including steam locos right outside your room ! Free secure garage parking a real bonus in busy Whitby. Very quiet block with only noise from the trackside but even that was great. The doors open fully allowing you to get the full effect of the locos. Wouldn't hesitate to come back here - enjoy!

    Don’t expect any where to sit outside, it is an old loco shed, but you would never know from inside, but trains run feet away (not many and not after 11 pm) from your windows. The added bonus of a proper garage is more than useful. Only down side was fairly slow internet speeds. Just minutes from the harbour and it’s huge selection of fish and chip venues!

This accommodation is more than Whitby’s general offering and the addition of those extras makes this head and shoulders over the rest.

  • "Our second visit to this wonderful apartment was again tremendous."

    There is no better place to stay in Whitby for luxury, convenience and cleanliness. Under Covid restrictions the biggest contrast to last September was in the town itself as it was so much busier. The restaurants had excellent measures in place and it felt quite safe to eat out. However, on the streets it was difficult to socially distance and we ended up wearing masks while out walking in town. Obviously there are so many options for getting away from the crowds though. We would love to come back to the apartment again next year but the large increase in cost (nearly £200 more) may prevent this sadly. Fabulous apartment.

    Initially we could not get in the main door as our code number as incorrect, but we spoke to the contact you gave us (mobile number) and very quickly we were in. We were impressed with the welcome pack (milk, bread, tea, coffee etc - many thanks). The only problem we experienced was the toilet seat was loose (I tried to fix, but its one of those seats that is only accessible before fitting to wall) ... a nice touch was to have Netflix and Amazon Prime on the TV. We loved the train set (1:1) you installed for us I think the only maor change would be to have Air Conditioning. Hopefully, later in the year we will find another similar property for a UK Staycation ;0)
