Robins is not a 4 tick holiday cottage looks good on paper but the holiday home is dated and not very clean when you have a good inspection.. A good size home old TV no smart TV you will need your own smart devices . Not in the best street back of a petrol station 'dirty windows asked to remove bed covers no problem but stains on pillows and matteres not nice only plus is the size of accomodation . would not got back the place needs updating

A lovely visit again, having been to the Robins before.. The house is extremely well set up and, despite COVID-19 restrictions on some things (like books and DVDs) nearly everything you want to do in a home is possible there. We highly recommend it.

Holiday place brill owners brill but totally disgusted with Sykes my holiday got cancelled cos Sykes failed to collect money and didn’t ring me to mention the problem had to spend best part of a day trying to sort and save holiday which was put right in the end but as a long term customer I’d have expected better treatment -not even any compensation or money off despite upsetting my whole family who are all key workers who thought we had lost our family time together after months of isolating and working as key workers teachers and doctors
Mr Holmes, August 2020
This was our second stay in The Robins and was just as good as we remembered.. We had a phone call to say that the property was ready for us, a little earlier than arranged but as we were a little later than we had hoped to be we rang Sue just as we were arriving and she came straight away to show us around. A lovely warm welcome with a complimentary basket of essentials to make a welcome cuppa! The photos do not do the property justice and we couldn't find fault with anything. I thought something was missing in the lounge but my husband remembered the lovely Christmas tree from our earlier stay! Really spoilt for choice with more books than a library, games and even jigsaws as well as toys for younger children. Lovely linen and more towels than we needed....perfect!
And within a 3 minute walk of our favourite restaurant...Bella Italia is just around the corner but do book. We went twice during our stay and the restaurant was full on both occasions.
We had a lovely stay here and will definitely return.
Very spacious house in excellent location.. House has everything you need to enjoy your holiday.We have booked again for next year.
The house was extremely clean and the furnishings were of very good condition.. However, I do not feel that it is suitable for elderly or disabled people. The stairs were extremely steep and the polished floorboards were difficult for the disabled or elderly. Also the house accepts pets which is good as we have a dog but she found it really difficult to walk on the floorboards and kept slipping. I feel also it would be better to have some net curtains on the front windows as you felt were open to people walking by or from the opposite side of the road. Apart from these comments the house was very nice and comfortable.
A brilliant property in a delightful seaside town..
We loved the robins as it was like a home from home and gave us excellent access to every where we planned to go.. Would rate this as the best accommodation we have had to date.was so good have already booked for next year.
The situation of this house is close to all amenities shops restaurants beach it has everything you need just like home from home.. Very quiet street even though it's just off the main road, we had a lovely week weather was kind to us some lovely walks nearby wouldn't hesitate a return visit excellent.
Excellent week weather brill Robins is like home from home great place to stay ,really enjoyable .. This is our fourth year there ,very nice ,Can highley reccomend .
Accommodation as described, very well equipped & comfortable..
This was our second stay at the Robins at fileý .. It's a beautiful, spacious, clean ,comfortable home from home house in the centre of filey . The nearest supermarket 5 minutes walk away .The sea front 10minutes walk away. Good restaurants all around .what more can you ask for .We enjoyed our stay so much again that we've already booked again for next year .
Brilliant as ever
This is the second time we have used Sykes and stayed at this property and we hope to be making next year's booking in the very near future..
Convenient for all amenities, walking distance to the beach ,spacious and pleasant accommodation.. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay .

Excellent location but could do with blackout blinds in the bedrooms as way to light and I did see that quite a few people had also wrote this in the book on feedback it is excellent if you had children as they have thought of everything for children from buckets and spades to all the board games to DVDs thought of everything no need to pack toys or anything for the children
From start to finish everything we needed was available.. This is a great location for exploring filey and surrounding towns. The owners where so friendly and the neighbours too. So so clean we all loved it. We will be booking again soon.
The Robins is a lovely cottage would highly recommend it
Lovely home, very clean, much larger than expected! Well placed for the shops and beach.
Having stayed in a lot of accommodations and cottages, I can truly say that The Robins was truly excellent.. It was immaculate, comfortable and extremely spacious and was situated in a great central location, only 5-10 minute walk from all the amenities and the beach. My family and I couldn’t have felt more comfortable or at home. Would have no hesitation in recommending The Robins to anyone.
Excellent accommodation. Very clean, warm and well located for shops beach supermarket and bars. Not far from Scarborough and Bridlington for a day visit. This holiday let has everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed our visit soooo much we are hoping to return in 2018.
The Robins was really beautiful ! Good Value For Money ! Comfy ! Good Decor ! Very Clean ! Well Equipped ! Handy for buses trains and shops would highly recommend !!!Cannot wait to visit again ! Thankyou !
A great little find.. Close to all Filey has to offer. Cosy relaxing warm retreat after a days shopping in Scarborough and walking along Fileys beach. If I had to be picky I thought the 10am kick out time a little early especially when you have to strip the beds. Also being really really picky in the twin room it would be great to have a small lamp. We used the one from the hallway which was a little big. All in all a great stay. Thanks ks
Lovely, spacious, well equipped house in a convenient location.. Communication with the owner /Sykes Cottages was great. We'd have no hesitation in booking again and recommending to others
Fantastic house, immaculate for such a big house, best one we have found in Filey, so central for everything, Owner was lovely and helpful, would highly recommend..
This was a perfect house for three generations of the family.. Nicely decorated and well equipped, we really didn't want for anything! Close to the beach, close to the supermarket, bus and train station. A lovely week.
Fabulously spacious clean cottage with a massive, well equipped kitchen. One of the best accommodation we have stayed in as a family and very central for Filey.

This is a beautiful house with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. It has plenty of room for families and stacks of books, toys, jigsaws, games and DVDs for rainy days. It was within walking distance to Filey and easy accessible for public transport. It was clean and cosy inside and with helpful owners. We look forward to visiting again in the future. Highly recommended.
The Robins is a well presented beautiful terrace house. Really clean and so much space, loved it. We will definitely go again.
The house is very big and comfortable, it was also nice and warm and it had everything you need.
A lovely property and an ideal situation. It had every item of kitchen equipment known to man!
Lovely place, ideally situated. We liked everything about it.
We had a great few days at The Robins, celebrating New Year. A very warm, cosy house with everything we needed and more. The Playstation was a big hit with our 2 grandsons and the locality meant we never had to move the car. Would maybe like to come again in the summer. A good time was had by all.
The house was spacious and clean and near to all shops and amenities. A lovely house in a quiet area, a very relaxing and enjoyable Christmas was had by all.
Lovely warm house - really close to everything in Filey. Having a playroom with a jigsaw/games table was brilliant.
It was so clean and central, warm and very comfortable.
Excellent base for the town. The property had everything we needed.
An excellent playroom with toys, our 2 and a half year old granddaughter loved her seaside house. A very welcoming home, not just a holiday house. There was no need to use car as we walked to the beach and shops.
Really lovely home...very homely and everything spotlessly clean. Flowers and chocolates were a nice touch. I would definitely stay there again. The second lounge/play room was great for us. The only downside is the garden, which is a small courtyard, but we knew that before we went. Barbeque items were provided and we managed to use them. Only a 5 minute walk to Tesco's and the town for strolling around the shops. And only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Was great not to have to use the car all the time.
A lovely house with good quality equipment, absolutely everything you could possibly need. Owners were really helpful and welcoming. Would definitely stay again.
A lovely spacious house which would be ideal for a family with young children. A real home from home.
Light spacious rooms, very central for the town.
Excellent family accommodation. Very spacious and clean. Lots of games and DVDs for children. Good location for Filey, beaches country park. Helpful owners.
We have just spent a week at this holiday cottage and it was superb, the owners were so helpful. The cottage was brilliant, clean and well equipped and central for Filey; shops, bus and train stations and the country park. We will definitely go back and would recommend this to anybody looking for a holiday.
Cleanliness, location, quality of contents within house, friendly owner, very welcoming.
