Lovely boutique hotel located right on the seafront in dear old Scarborough. We ad a split level damiy room and it was excellent save a banging cupboard door that we wedged open to save our sanity. We were blaming noisy neighbours or spirits on the haunt . Breakfast was served late (for us) 9 -11 but it was fantastic. All...

Staff were cheerful and helpful and we left bags in the room whilst they finished cleaning it. Breakfast was fine, well cooked if a little small....

Really good location,central to all seaside amenities.Good staff.The downside no Internet connection for the whole weekend,possibly affected by the recent storms.Last night woken by someone repeatedly banging on one of the doors.Nice bright coffee shop on the ground floor serving light meals,cakes and snacks. This could be a superb place but needs some investment in order to get it there....

This place needs both some tlc, one of my bedroom window had panes covered in plastic that had clearly been there for some time, but the staff need some customer care training.

Hi, may i just point out that from your 17 reviews, 6 have been terrible and 4 have been poor. I might suggest that this is perhaps more your problem than ours? Hope to see you soon. Gary

Good Afternoon, So why only 4 if it was really good? There was always the option NOT to buy it? surely you can't knock us on price when you were prepared to pay it AND it was really good??? Thanks for your feedback. Kind Regards Gary Stamper
