The cottage has been inventively rebuilt from the old lifeboat house to create an interesting space. The open plan living area/kitchen was stylish, very user friendly and spacious. The cottage was quiet, but close to amenities and the sea. The historical photographs of the original building were interesting and thoughtfully placed. A good variety of books and leaflets had been provided and on arrival there was milk, tea, flowers and a bottle of wine.
Mrs Bryan, Buckinghamshire
,The Old Lifeboat House was a beautiful place to stay, roomy and well laid out. We would not hesitate recommending the accommodation to others, and would definitely consider a return ourselves!
Ms Robinson, West Yorkshire
,The standard of accommodation was outstanding. Modernised to an excellent standard. Was comfortable, warm and beautifully decorated. The building from the outside was very traditional but inside had the wow factor, we loved it!
Mrs Bott, West Midlands
,Good positioning for walking to the beach, shops/town centre and Hornsea Freeport. The host was very nice and friendly and helpful. A gorgeous house, even our three teenage boys enjoyed it. Well done.
,The accommodation position was excellent within the town. Excellent ambiance, overall a very good property. Would come back again.
Mrs Bolton, North Lincolnshire
,Loved it! Just perfect!
,We enjoyed the house immensely. The proximity to the seaside was appreciated by our two grandchildren. Ease of access to shops and eating places in Hornsea was a plus for the less mobile members of the group.
Mrs Frost, Cheshire
,The Old Lifeboat House was fantastic! We had a great time, it was immaculately clean, the decorations were just right and there were a range of extras. We were met by the owner on arrival and he showed us round and how everything worked.
Mrs Alderson, Lincolnshire
,The cottage was first rate, exceptionally clean and very well equipped. It was a pleasure to come back to each day.
Mr Wolfe, East Sussex
,The Old Lifeboat House was a fantastic property to stay in, we received a very warm welcome from the owner. The house was quirky and had everything we could of needed for a weeks holiday. I would defiantly recommend this property and we would love to re-visit.
,The Old Lifeboat House was set up to a very high standard, this makes for a very relaxing holiday. We like this area because of its long sandy beaches we are great for dog walking. We hope to go again in the near future.
,I love Hornsea, and the Old Lifeboat House is the ideal place to stay with everything in easy walking distance, and lots of dog walking areas. This cottage is such an unusual building, and deceptively huge and roomy with a very well equipped kitchen. Highly recommended. We were very lucky with the weather being good and very mild and sunny with some beautiful sunrises.
Mrs Deeley, Nottinghamshire
,The Old Lifeboat House is a beautifully decorated and transformed cottage, great location and everything you could need was in there. Lovely, cosy, warm accommodation we will definitely be returning
Mrs Eastwood, South Yorkshire
,The Old Lifeboat House was well equipped with everything we needed. It is a different and quirky property, with a bit of history.
,A very nice property, this was our 2nd stay. It is a well laid out cottage with first class amenities. We hope to return to The Old Lifeboat House next year.
Mr Fennelow, South Yorkshire
,The open plan living space was ideal for our family get together. Overall, there are only so many times you can use the word 'superb' in a review, so I'll just use it the once - superb!
Mr Whittingham, Nottinghamshire
,The Old Lifeboat House is calming and relaxing and spotlessly clean. The house is quiet and tranquil, and the owners have gone that extra mile to make the stay wonderful, everything you need is there. It's a 'Tardis', looks small from the outside but once you get inside it is huge. Brilliant place to stay!
