Booked online looked good and location we wanted, a few days before arrival I received a phone call telling us that nobody was having breakfast that weekend so would we go to wetherspoons which was just round the corner and cheaper so we would save money and be able to have a lie in if we wanted.

Our reviews speak for themselves. This customer chose to have breakfast in local pub as he said he wanted to save money and it was cheaper than B&B charge. The room they chose was perfect and nothing wrong with it. This customer was miserable when they arrived and when they departed the same. This is NOT an honest review. They... More

Arrived after work Friday eve, and couldn't believe the state of the room. The pictures I have added say it all. The shower was stuck together with black tape, the bed linen was old and full of bobbly bits, the towels were stained, the room hadn't been hoovered, and our first impression was 'bloody hell, this is grubby'. We were... More

Nice clean rooms at a good price. Plenty of choice at breakfast time. Seb the owner was very friendly and helpful. Central location with buses and trains almost outside. All that Scarborough has to offer is nearby too. Would stay again.

Great location small hotel. Very clean and in good smart condition. Lovely land lady. Continental breakfast as much as we could eat (3 men in single occupancy rooms on business trip). Parking was a very small extra charge for right outside the hotel.

We booked at the last minute for three nights and were initially pleased to find such a central room available at £55 per night. Seb, the manager, phoned us up to check arrival time and she offered to upgrade us to an en-suite if she could, which fortunately she was able to do for two of the three nights. The... More

Our reviews speak for themselves. To date most customers who have stayed in our double room have been very satisfied. The budget rooms are low cost rooms and are reflected in the price. This customer did not read the description correctly and his comments are false and not justifiable. Pay a little bit more if you want an ensuite and... More
