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.

We've used Discovery accommodation numerous times in the past and always been happy with it. However.... We booked a mini suite at Sea Breeze on West Cliff. It was SO disappointing - awful musty sour smell, curtain hanging off the curtain pole, and filthy windows. First thing we did was go shopping for air fresheners! The lighting was dim. There was a strange A4 sized fold-away electric hob which we didn't use. There was NO KITCHEN SINK!!!! We had to decant water from the ensuite sink to the kettle using our cups. We couldn't wash our cups in the ensuite sink so they were just rinsed and left to air-dry (no tea towel provided). I'm pretty sure this washing-up arrangement isn't very hygienic. We ate out the whole time,as washing up wasn't possible. Very slow drainage from the shower meant we constantly watched the water level in the shower tray so we didn't flood the floor. Needless to say, we won't be using Discovery any more. We didn't complain - after reading many reviews on Tripadvisor we figured it would be a waste of time....

We recently stayed at the annex discovery House, we found it very good in fact excellent for what we paid. People who have wrote bad reviews are what we think expecting 5 star luxury for budget accommodation. We will definitely visit again. The room was basic clean and worth what was paid.

The room we were in "Banks" was very small for two people. Twin beds were not available, despite requesting them. The room was not very clean and had a musty smell. No hooks or rail for towels in bathroom, very basic, just far too small. Not good value for money. Would not recommend

We are regular visitors to wonderful Whitby and often use Discovery Accommodation, there prices are reasonable and the locations around the town are great. This year was our 3rd consecutive stay at the 'starfish' accommodations, we had noticed a decline over the years but this time it was unbearable. 1.Uncomfortable and tired furniture- sofa's, chairs and beds 2. Plastic duvets and pillows- awful 3. 1 small pan and 1 small frying pan in self catering accommodation- for 8 people 4. No use of the lift again (we have never seen this in working order) Overall an uncomfortable stay and not home from home. Basic at the very least. There are much nicer, comfier places to stay.

We paid £120 for 2 nights then read the reviews. We had concerns about the property due to the reviews and were pleasantly surprised on arrival. The room was small but clean and didn’t smell as per the reviews. The shower unit is compact you get a rain shower and they provide 2 towels for each person. It isn’t 5* luxury but it is value for money if you are looking for cheap and cheerful. There is a kettle and cups but no teabags / milk so bring your own there is also an iron & board and hairdryer.
