Fabulous breakfast, grilled tomatoes not tinned, black pudding and a cafetiere of coffee. Friendly but unobtrusive hosts, very clean and comfortable. Rooms of a decent size with TV and well-stocked hospitality tray. We'd originally booked into another B&B closer to the town, but one look at the sticky carpets sent us to the Lysander. We won't stay anywhere else next...

We made a last minute booking as we had business in town and what a delight the Lysander is. We had a superior room, which was light, exceptionally clean and very pleasant indeed. The shower room was large and the water very hot! The Lysander is quite literally across the road from the North Bay beach. We had a lovely...

Having had the pleasure of staying at The Lysander previously in order to watch cricket at the Scarborough annual cricket festival, it came as no surprise to both me and my colleague that their standards remained very high on our recent visit. The proprietors, Julie & Andy have worked very hard to ensure residents have a pleasurable stay in their...

I couldn't agree more with the other reviews. The hotel is lovely, in a great quiet spot, easy parking and just a short walk to the beach. You can also walk to the south side of the town/town centre within 15 minutes. The breakfast is fab and the rooms are great. We visited some local pubs as recommended by our...

Hotel was a great place! quiet area, however only 4 pound for a taxi to all the arcades etc.. Breakfast was great quality. Andy and Julie are exceptional hosts, whilst in Scarborough my girlfriend lost her purse, Andy and Julie couldnt help enough, and this was greatly appreciated. We will definitely be returning hopefully in the near future.

A great find. A very good Bed & Breakfast. Spotless in all areas. The owners were very obliging. It was in a great, quiet position and within walking distance to the front. The breakfast was of a very good quality and plenty of it. We would not hesitate to recommend the Lysander and hope to return ourselves in the future....
