Just returned home after a fabulous 5 nights in Scarborough watching Yorkshire play Nottingham CCC at North Marine Road. Yorkshire CCC members just love this annual pilgrimage to the seaside venue and many bring the whole family down for the duration of the game, consequently gates of around 5,000 are commonplace for this delightful venue.

We booked a small double which was fine for what we wanted. The room had all the facilities you could need and was very clean! On our anniversary we... More

The accommodation was spotless and the breakfast wonderful with nothing being too much trouble for the friendly staff. We had booked a room for ourselves and our 5 year old granddaughter. The room was quite small with rather too much furniture.It lacked... More

With a good weather forecast for the weekend and beyond, we fancied a few days in Scarborough. We had stayed at a few nice places in the past, but with it being August, the schools on holiday and a good forecast, vacancies were at a premium and none of the places we had stayed at in the past were available....

We stayed here on a visit to the Open Air Theatre. Very clean and modern with excellent breakfast. The owners were most welcoming and informative about places to visit in Scarborough. A short walk to Peasholm Park and North Bay. Off road parking.
