I was accommodated in a spacious, well equipped bedroom at the front of the property, with a pleasant view as far as the castle. (Apart from the last morning...

Just returned home after a fabulous 5 nights in Scarborough watching Yorkshire play Nottingham CCC at North Marine Road.

Hotels and Guest Houses do...

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...

The room was quite small with rather too much furniture.It lacked...

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.

Just returned from an overnight stay at The Lysander in Scarborough. We chose The Lysander due to the close proximity to the Scarborough Open Air Theatre as we were attending an event there. We were met with a warm welcome before being shown to our Superior room on the 2nd floor. The room was spotless with a huge bed, drinks...
