I stayed with 3 20-something friends for a weekend at Discovery House - on arrival house was spotlessly clean, bigger than expected and in very good location. Some previous reviews have slated quality of furniture, cleanliness of under the bed etc - it is what it is - the beds were comfy, bathrooms clean and everything we needed was available....

My wife & I booked Discovery Accommodation and true to their word everything went swimmingly smooth. Prior to the visit I had booked the parking and rang to ask if I could have the parking fairly close to the accommodation, they did not let me down, it was about 2 - 3 minute walk. The accommodation was bang opposite their...

Went here with friend sand had booked two double room but were upgraded to apartments which were excellent: lots of space and well equipped. On a narrow side street but very close to shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and a short walk to the headland or the harbour.

We have stayed in different discovery accomodation apartments over the years and were disappointed by this one. We stayed in Pier, a two bedroomed apartment, part of the building that houses the reception and the oldest of their properties and was the worst we have stayed in. The flat was gloomy; energy saving light bulbs every where that never brightened....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set at different locations from the popular West Cliff to the glorious Pannett Park, Discovery Accommodation is just 5 - 10 minutes' walk from the sandy Whitby Beach. Our guests have use of an indoor heated swimming pool and infra-red sauna for their own private use at an additional fee. Both very popular so we advise pre-booking these facilities. The bright and airy bedrooms each have a TV, hot drinks facilities and a private bathroom. Some of our rooms feature a fully equipped kitchen and living area, and all have fresh, modern decor. We have a range of properties varying from our popular and modern Town House, to our traditional Discovery Cottage. We look forward to welcoming guests in our stylish lounge office. ... more   less
