We needed a cheapish b & b in Scarborough, but actually checked then double check, then checked again because the reviews were great, the pics were great, the sea views were great and the price was incredible, but it was true and we had a great stay. Our expectations were not high, but they were thoroughly surpassed! Lovely friendly, engaging...

Used this hotel for an overnight stay during half term week. Rooms was clean, warm and comfortable, if a little small, but a wonderful sea view made up for this. Location is excellent being no more than a 10 - 15 minute walk from all Scarborough has to offer. Breakfast was first class and all the staff I encountered were...

Positives: Clean, warm room. Lovely sea view. Very good breakfast (cereal, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, full English) which was good value for money. Staff pleasant in the majority. Negatives: Room very small and cramped (it was only really big enough to be a single, not the double we paid for). Very limited space for belongings (a hook by the sink would...

Stayed 2 nights in a sea view double room, overlooking the North Bay, which was extremely clean and comfortable, although the room was tiny for a double room. There was a double bed but walking past the end of the bed was difficult. The shower fluctuated from cold to hot and was very difficult to control. The breakfast was excellent...

Booked two nights here for my partners birthday as a surprise. The 'hotel' advertises itself as 4 star. The second you step in the building you realise that it most definitely is not. The staff were friendly and helpful. My issue is the misleading way it is advertised. This is a guest house/B&B. If it was advertised as such, then...

It was nice to find somewhere that was happy to take our dog and able to change our booking with no complaints. Good parking and a warm welcome got our stay off to a good start. The lift to the second floor was a godsend. The room was nice and clean with a lovely sea view. Space was tight for...
