I stayed for one night in the ground floor room to make nipping outside...

My favourite hotel. Mal and Kath make you feel so welcome and cared for, it tingles! Lovely building and location just a few short minutes walk from the beach and promenade. Super clean rooms with comfy beds and legendary tasty cooked breakfast. Full marks.

We were welcomed by the lovely Katherine, this was our first visit to The Raincliffe, and likely to be an annual trip. We have stayed in Scarborough before but it was much easier to access the hotel, as the steps are shallow and lit up with a secure handrail. Fairly easy to park, and cheap to do so!! We stayed...

Are you fed up with searching for the right combination of quality and value when staying in beautiful Scarborough? Look no further than the Raincliffe. We are a top graded licensed small hotel/guesthouse, ten minutes level walk to Spa, south beach, theatres with the town and museums also close by. We offer excellent refurbished accommodation (not just a lick of paint), consistently high standards with comfortable beds, spotless en-suites, high quality food and most importantly a warm, genuine welcome. Consistently positively reviewed on many accommodation websites for the last 5 years, contributor to the 'Scarborough' TA forum and winners of Channel 4's '3 in a bed'. We welcome well behaved children over 8 years and regret that we do not accept pets. ... more   less
