"Excellent, clean, home from home"
Stayed here for two nights with my husband . The cottage has everything you need, it was a very cold and rainy weekend but coming back to the warm cottage was great. Very well situated for local amenities. Also went to Scarborough which was about half an hour away. Hopefully will stay here again. I have told all family and friends and work colleagues about this cottage.
Thank you for choosing Anstis Cottage for your stay in Whitby and for your comments.
Look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
We would like to reiterate the importance of our guests' comments in order to monitor the standard of our holiday accommodation. We try to gauge this by contacting our guests on arrival via a phone call and also ask for comments in the visitor's book at the property. We also try to contact guests before departure.
Unfortunately, on this occasion, we have not met with your expectations and we apologise for this. Whilst we value guest's general comments we also find it helpful for awareness of any accidental damage or wear and tear issues that may have occurred during their visit in order to have the opportunity to recify these as soon as possible.
We do, however, find some of your comments unfounded and perhaps more to do with personal preferences but will take these on board and compare these against other guests comments should they be mentioned, for example the strong fragrance from the bed linen due to our choice of detergent and fabric softener.
Cleanliness is of paramount importance and something we have always received excellent feed back on. In fact the guests prior to your visit have a given a very favourable review. Naturally from time to time we do try out different cleaning products and futher to your feedback, we will now go back to using spray bleach rather than a Cif as this product can leave a chalky/white residue when dry. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Your comments regarding fittings in the property have suprised us too. Most of the lighting and bathroom fittings are from either M&S, Next or Laura Ashley all of whom we believe offer good quality and durability. As previously mentioned wear and tear can happen at any time and we hope these issues can be resolved during the changeover/cleaning of the accommodation
