“Boathouse, whitby”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2017

Great little place to stay, cosy and compact and very well situated for getting out and about and exploring whitby. Tiny, but has everything you need....though you may have to check in the dishwasher to find some of it!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review. We will address the dishwasher situation with the staff, we do apologise for any inconvenience. With kind regards We Love Whitby Team

“The Best Place to Stay in Whitby”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2014

Simply the best property to stay in when visiting Whitby. The location is superb and totally unique. Standing outside on the terrace (where I spent quite a bit of time!) feels like you almost at sea, on board some ocean liner, rather than being in the centre of Whitby. Feels very modern throughout, tastefully furnished and the gas fire was a welcome addition and the cinema system finished off the day nicely whilst cuddling up on the huge sofa. It is also very quiet during the evenings and mornings. We'd usually start the morning by opening the Velux window, to hear the seagulls whilst having our morning tea! Step out of the property and across the bridge to the 'mainland' and you are straight in to the oldest and prettiest part of Whitby, close to some excellent pubs and restaurants (those voted very highly on trip advisor are all within very close proximity to the Boathouse). I can't really say much about what I didn't like and if pushed, the front door sticks a bit!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your fantastic review, we are really glad that you enjoyed your stay in The Boathouse and also in Whitby, it sounds like the weather was good to you as well! That always helps! Many many thanks for your glowing review! With kind regards Stewart and June


Reviewed 1 Jun 2013

stayed for 5 nights, have looked at the boathouse many times so finally decided we had to stay!! We totally loved it, there is nothing like it, Yeh there may be a few minor niggles others have mentioned but that's what they are - minor!The location is unbeatable, It has everything you need and more, the decking is perfect for early evening wine before heading out for one of our many wonderful meals! After freezing temp, rain, sleet and gale force winds we had glorious sunshine. The night of the winds was so cosy, like being in a boat, without the sickness! The bathtub is great, especially on the colder nights. The sofas were really comfy, tv easy to use, kitchen very well equipped with everything you need (I couldn't get the drier to work tho! but im sure that was me) The only problem is how on earth can we stay anywhere else when we go to Whitby?

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed yourselves. We have hopefully ironed out the niggles now. Hope to see you again sometime

“Could have been nicer for the money!”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2012

The Boathouse is in a fabulous position, it must have once been really nice, but we found it looked very tired - the spiral staircase was loose at the top despite a review in August that it needed repairing. Had a large hole in the bathroom towel, grubby rug in the lounge, and during a very windy stormy night, the shutters outside were banging on the boathouse as they werent fixed to the windows properly., hence no sleep! We enjoyed where it was though, we put up with the faults as it was a very unique place to stay. The owners should smarten it up a bit and then it would be wonderful.

“A beautifully furnished, romantic location with amazing harbour views.”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2011

The boathouse was even nicer than expected - totally unique! Furnished to a very high standard, it was well equipped and a lovely romantic location for our wedding anniversary. The outside decking area was much larger than anticipated and had amazing views across Whitby. A really special touch was to be able to have private dining at The Boathouse, provided by the hotel restaurant. We have already recommended it to friends and would love to visit again ourselves.
