Very good 8.0
Facilities were good, had everything we would need. The biggest downside was the bed! Very uncomfortable and whenever you moved it creaked very loudly. The view from the bedroom was vey interesting! Lol

Used Discovery many times before and always a pleasant stay. My side of the bed seem to have a bit of slope this time so didn't sleep too well, but only 1 nights stay this time.

Kitchen floor was sticky as was the dining table. We went out and bought cleaning materials to address the situation. Bed sheet had a couple of oily stains on it. Bathroom walls had black hairs on them. The literature boasts a bath in this apartment which was true but it doesn’t have any bath taps so if want a bath rather than a shower you have to fill the bath from the shower. Well placed for the town of Whitby however.

Good location not too far from the quay. Dogs welcome and parking on site. Ideal for a getaway in the top seaside resort of Whitby

Good and Bad - Sad
The booking site gave this as a location with free parking. There was an very expensive Pay and Display adjacent, but none at the site, although there was space in the building yard. I suffer froma chronic heart condition and arthritis, so parking is very important. Also, the "kitchenette" didn't have a sink, and items could only be washed in the bothroon WHC.

Fair 4.0
Mixed feelings
We were not impressed that we didn't know which of the Discovery venues we'd be allocated until the morning of our arrival. Apparently this is because we'd not booked with them direct. We had 2 motorbikes to park and 2 kids with us so we wanted to know where we'd be beforehand. (Don't assume you'll be able to park anywhere near any accommodation you may book in Whitby) The pool had to be paid for, £4 per person, and pre-booked. On the morning we left my wife and kids swam, but the water was quite murky and made their swimwear stink, which has required multiple washes to sort out. If I'd known before we left I would have raised this with reception. We were running out of loo roll in our apartment and when I asked reception for some more I was stunned to be told I had to pay 50p for a new roll. Now for the good stuff: the staff were all very helpful, it's not their fault different booking systems leave some guests in the dark about where they're staying, and as far as local information about beaches, entertainment etc they were fantastic. The rooms were clean and bright, some blind on the Velux windows would have been nice, and breakfast was spot on. Book direct with Discovery to save some unnecessary faff.
