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...

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!

We are writing to recommend Alexandra House unreservedly. Our stay couldn't really be bettered as our two rooms were spacious and with really excellent showers; the welcome from Carol (and ,later, Dave) was friendly and very efficient; and the breakfast was one of the very best we have experienced anywhere regardless of cost. Nice touches were the high quality snacks...

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...

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 returned home yesterday after our second stay at Alexandra House where again we were looked after so well by Carol and Dave. Our room was sparkling clean and comfortable and because the weather was bad and we had a 7 year old with us we stayed in both evenings and we were so comfy it wasn't a hardship at...

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 and Dave were excellent hosts, as ever, and Carol's breakfasts are second to none. We visit Scarborough every year and this will be our regular place to stay - so good, we booked for...

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. Our room was lovely, comfy beds, a settee in the room, a very good, clear, digital television...
