  • "Lovely clean comfortable apartment, all the facilities you need comfortable beds and near to all the amenities."

  • "The property was extremely cold on arrival."

    It was colder inside than out. The sofa and beds took hours to warm through. The general property was clean however it is starting to feel unloved. The ensuite shower fills with water and leeks over the floor. The lounge window opens but no longer stays open. The kitchen cupboard doors are coming apart. There is a massive whole in the kitchen worktop. The carpets in the bedrooms need cleaning. I picked this because the photos and 4.5 star rating Sykes had given it. Do you reinspect property? There is a lot going for this place and could be fantastic. It needs someone to love it.

    A great place to stay, near enough to the hustle and bustle but also far enough away.

    Very little has been done in the 3 years since I first stayed there. It needs decorating throughout.

  • "This is a pleasant clean apartment that overlooks the River Esk towards the boat yard, carpark and railway and ideal for visiting North Yorkshire."

    A lift allows access for the less able. But walking to the town where parking is very expensive takes longer than some suggest despite the road being flat. The welcome pack of four small chocolates is different, but 'the makings' would be more appreciated following a long journey especially as the nearest shops are some distance away

  • "The Moorings is the perfect base for a visit to Whitby and surrounding areas."

  • "We enjoyed our stay at the Moorings."

    We were surprised there was no heating on in the apartment when we arrived, which for a December date we thought should have been; especially as we were not arriving until after 4pm as per instructions. It took 24 hours for the apartment to heat up. The apartment is immediately above the garage space. The second bathroom had quite a bit of mould in it.

    Reviewed by RogerDec 2020

  • "The fact that the apartment came with it's own parking space is extremely useful."

    The cost of parking in Whitby is exorbitant and there is very little on road parking. The apartment is within easy walking of the centre of town and amenities. The view of the harbour and bird and seal life an extra bonus.

  • "Due to the Covid outbreak we were not sure whether we were going to be able to have our holiday in Whitby this year, but luckily it was possible for it to go ahead."

    The flat we stayed in had been thoroughly cleaned and there was a lovely note from the cleaner explaining that certain items had been removed to make the flat safer and to enable deep cleaning to be carried out effectively. We were also amazed to find that the block where the flat was situated had Santisers on every floor in the corridors and this made it safe to use the life when we first arrived. The flat was immaculate, and even with many items removed there was still a lovely atmosphere in the flat and we were able to successfully cook meals and enjoy our stay. We couldn't fault the preparation for our stay which was second to none, and we felt very safe and relaxed. Thank you to everyone involved in making our stay safe and enjoyable.

  • "We were delighted with the holiday apartment, where we stayed for 3 nights whilst attending a wedding."

    The situation is excellent for accessing both Whitby and the surrounding area. We enjoyed watching both seals and birds in the estuary from the living room window. The apartment has its own secure parking space, and the lift made it easy to take luggage upstairs from the car park. All equipment is in good condition and there was nothing we needed that wasn't there! It was easy to control heating, and lovely to have two bathrooms. We highly recommend the accommodation and would happily return.

    There were one or two small irritations. The car park space was occupied by another vehicle the whole time and the system was a free-for-all. There were a couple of lighting problems in the bathrooms. It was not clear to us who to contact in these situations. However this is a lovely apartment overall and we would definitely stay again.

  • "The Moorings location is excellent, being harbourside there is plenty to see from the window; we enjoyed watching boats entering the estuary via the slipway and the trains leaving the station whilst savouring a morning coffee."

    The apartment was very clean, decoration was very fresh and had it all the equipment and facilities that we needed, the allocated car parking space is great guaranteeing somewhere to park. The short 10 minute walk into town is on the level and you pass a couple of chippies on the way, ideal for that late evening takeaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately stay here again and recommend to others.
