It was lovely to find a place with no traffic noise to disturb us at night. Carol and Dave were very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for us country bumpkins, within easy walking distance of the harbour and town centre (about 10-15 minutes). Although the weather wasn't very good it didn't stop us from enjoying our stay. We... More

Hubby & I enjoyed a lovely couple of days (without the kids) in Scarborough. We stayed at Alexandra House with hosts Carol & Dave and were looked after very well. A much loved house in a super location & a fab breakfast. We will definately recommend to family & friends and might even bring the kids along next time!

Nice touches were the high quality snacks... More

On returning from a trip to Whitby, my boyfriend and I wanted a one night stay in Scarborough. After most places telling us they wouldn't take us for just one night, we were happy to find Alexandra House. We were pleasently surprised by the guest house, with our room and bathroom being of a nice size. In addition, David and... More

Carol and Dave and fantastic hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and the service is second to none. The breakfasts are superb with a fantastic choice available. If you need to know anything about Scarborough or the surrounding area they are a wealth of knowledge. We would certainly stay here again. Thanks very much Carol. Rick and Margaret Barnsley.

We stayed at Alexandra House from 31st July to 7th August 2011 - our second visit, following a great stay in 2010. We weren't disappointed.

Carol, the owner, gave us a very warm welcome and told us about the area. We were told that we could park across the road with a parking permit which cost 50p per day, quite a bargain really, which we bought from Carol.
