“Poorly Equipped kitchen ”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

11 of us spent a weekend here. Although there are lots of bedrooms it was a squash in the dining room to fit us all round the table which was surrounded by sofas. We removed the plastic lace effect table cover which was sticky and dirty. The doors to the main shower and 1 ensuite shower were broken so we were left with one shower in a bedroom and the slipper bath between all of us. The separate WC's did not have hand basins. We had to ring the housekeeper as there were no tea towels, oven gloves and insufficient bath towels. There was only 1 good sized and quality pan. The others were small and either had the nonstick peeling off or were rusty. If I had not brought a large casserole with us we could not have made the chicken stew on Friday. I needed solid roasting tins for the next day to roast and finish off on the hob. The only ones that were not disgusting were paper thin. The housekeeper was lovely and helpful and brought another pan, jug bowl and two oven trays and a set of knives to replace the one that had broken in my hand. The trouble was she had been given a budget to stick to and the £9.99 set of knives were as unusable as the first set. We asked for a big cafetière as there was no way to make coffee and we got a tiny one for 1 mug. It is clear that the kitchen is new but the basics like dealing with the damp in the pan cupboard had not been sorted. There is lots of lovely crockery and a good hob and oven but if you intend to cook I would ensure you bring a decent knife and big pots and pans

“Good location”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
person found this review helpful

Just got back from our stay,13 of us. Positive - enough rooms to sleep a large party. Negatives - the whole house needs a blooming good clean, every bin in each bathroom was full so were the bins outside!!! 13 people in self catering for a week, create a lot of rubbish. The towels were stained and damp, not properly dried. The brochure says a shower room on the first floor, you have to go up a full set of stairs plus another 6, not ideal for my elderly mum. Positive - we made the most of our time here and the location was good.

“Whitby Weekend”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015
person found this review helpful

I have just returned from a birthday weekend here, booking this place mainly due to location and size as we were a party of ten. Plenty of positives - excellent location, lots of fresh sheets and towels, great kitchen with loads of pots and pans for cooking. Nice size bedrooms.
however a few negatives too - generally quite grubby - had to bleach rubbish bin on arrival, very dusty when retrieving toys from hidden corners, finger marks on windows, dirty tablecloths. A big negative is there isn't a room where everyone can sit together, even though it states sleeps 15 we struggled to get 10 around the dining table and neither lounge area was adequate to seat everyone.
It depends on how often you intend to eat in as to whether to recommend or not - fine for breakfast and fish and chips if less than ten of you, otherwise you will need a pub or restaurant to seat you all .

Had a lovely stay at hidden treasure in Whitby with family, the house was clean and tidy, beds were beautiful and comfy and the bathrooms were to a very nice standard, it is located very close to the beach and to the town , we will visit again sometime and highly recommend this house.
