Fantastic location
Reviewed 6 days ago

We stayed at these amazing apartments with the kids as mini break. The facilities and location are fantastic as we had no moans from them throughout our stay as they had the beautiful north bay on the doorstep and when the weather wasn't great had loads of DVDS and electronics indoors.... The apartments were really easy to navigate to and had free parking facilities. The sea view from our apartment (416) and the wonderful facilities made for a memorable stay. Full kitchen so helped us budgetwise. The icing on the cake was the gorgeous weather on Sunday. Three very happy kids and we will be back.

WOW factor

The location is amazing. Right on the beach front. This coupled with onsite free parking is a strong unique selling point. We were in apartment 310. This is a 3rd floor apartment with a walk on balcony and a forward facing sea view. The staff were warm, friendly and attentative. They phoned me to inform me that we could check in early as our room was ready. The apartment has a high spec kitchen and 2 bathrooms, with one being ensuite. 1 bedroom also has balcony access as well as access in the main living area. The views are breathtaking with both the sea and Scarborough castle. There is a convenience store and eateries within the complex. The additional touches of a fresh loaf with a medley of jams as well as milk and butter is a lovely touch, as is the complimentary tea and coffee. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and eat a meal. The only tip I would give you is ring to pick your apartment location. I wanted a forward facing walk on balcony this is what I asked for and this is what I got and what a beauty 310 is. I understand 1 apartment has a juliette balcony so if this isn't for you then it's best to ring. The rear apartments overlook the car park hence the drop in price. But you still have a walk on balcony to take in the air and you have everything I've said above as well as this belter of a location. Everything was clean, well maintained and with a lift for access if you have mobility issues. Staff will help you with your luggage, so those who need assistance will receive it. We love it and we will be back. You won't be dissapointed. Get it booked.

The appartment was very spacious and kitted out with everything you could want for a holiday. It was also extremely clean. All of our party agreed that the beds were very comfortable and everyone enjoyed a good nights sleep. The staff were lovely and ready to help or accomodate with anything you might want to ask. Pricey appartments but well worth it we thought.

Best place to stay in Scarborough

I have stayed here 4 times now it's great. The apartments are spotless and spacious. The on site gym is good just wish it was 24hr. Also the parking is in a secure car park. With shops and a bar underneath the building you don't have far to travel. 10 out of 10.

Just wow

The most amazing 2 nights stay! We were greeted by a member of staff in the car park and shown to our apartment (Kepwick 302). The welcome pack of bread, milk, dishwasher tablets and even rock for the kids was a nice little touch. The apartments are tastefully decorated and spotless with your own car park space and free fast WiFi. We were totally blown away by the place and the fantastic views of the sea, Scarborough Castle, mini golf and Peasholm Park from our balcony. So much to do around the Sands and a bus every 5 minutes to the South Bay it you want something livelier. We will definitely return, a luxurious home from home with every detail carefully thought out from the washer and dishwasher down to the Christmas tree, board games, umbrella and even a pop up tent for the beach in the airing cupboard to borrow and return. Wow is all I can say
