    we had a lovely holiday in the boatmans shelter. location couldn't have been better and the parking wasn't an issue but i can see it might be at the height of season. the appartment was feeling a bit tired in places, couches in particular, and the shower has a mind of it's own but overall it was fine. we would definately return again in the future.

    We stayed for a three night break which was not long enough. The apartment was in a beautiful position, central location with great views and very comfortable and clean. Parking was a little difficult at busy times and it would nice to have a dedicated space.

    Whilst the location was ok the fact that the apartment block was attached to a public toilet block was unfortunate. But Whitby is a delightfull place to stay and we would indeed return to the area if not the venue.

    What a great little place! Brilliant location and views. The apartment has been thoughtfully decorated and fitted out. Very comfortable. It is in the perfect spot in Whitby close to beach, harbour, bars and eateries.

    If I could have scored 11 out of 10 for every category I would! The apartment was bright,spacious, clean and yet still had something of the original buildings charm. The daily view over the harbour toward the abbey was breathtaking. The location for everything in Whitby couldn't be better. Parking in such a busy town is clearly an issue but the owners provided a ticket for much of the week so this wasn't an issue for us. Overall this apartment exceeded expectations in nearly every respect. We fully intend to visit again.
