Stayed here for 4 nights - 2 adults and one 14 year old. The room was OK but dated and could do with a facelift. Shower was very small and we are not large people! TV was very intermittent. Was only ever offered one glass of orange juice at breakfast - no choice of other juices forthcoming. Would be better... More

I can't say how happy we were from start to finish. The hotel was well presented and clean. The room was spacious and clean and tidy. The lady that ran the hotel was very friendly and lent us a buggy for the full stay. The breakfast was stunning. Very good value for money can't wait to book our next stay... More

Me, my wife and daughter stayed here 8-12 August, and had a really relaxing stay. We were warmly welcomed by Jean, and enjoyed our scrumptious Full English Breakfasts which do not skimp on quality or quantity. Also we enjoyed having a bottle of house wine in the cosy bar each night. 10/10 for this place. Thank You.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Catania is a sea front guest house, offering bed and breakfast accommodation on Scarborough's North Bay. We provide 4 star accommodation, including family rooms, in an elegant Victorian residence, built in 1880 and overlooking North Yorkshire's beautiful east coast and Scarborough castle. Ideally situated for all attractions including award winning Blue Flag beach, Peasholm Park, brand new Water Park, indoor swimming pool, Scarborough Cricket Ground, Sea Life Centre and only a 5 minute walk from newly refurbished open air theatre. We are within easy walking distance of the town centre, Scarborough harbour and South Bay attractions. Our friendly, family-run hotel has everything you may need to make your stay enjoyable... All rooms are en-suite, with central heating, digital TV, hospitality tray, clock radio alarm and hair dryer. Enjoy a full English or continental breakfast in our delightful Dining Room and plan your day with a little help from our wide choice of brochures and books. We aim to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible and we have a good selection of books, games and beach toys. Don't have to worry about parking as we have a large car park. We are rated 5 on Scarborough Council's Scores on Doors scheme for hygiene. Due to the design of the building we do have a lot of steps - around 12 from the car park to reception then the bedrooms are on three floors - sorry we do not have a lift but can take your bags to your room if required. All televisions have sub-titles. ... more   less
