Fabulous 8,8 From 16 reviews

Exceptional 10,0
short break
Basic but clean and tidy. Under new owners, Amy was pleasant and helpful. Had to change the dates for my stay at the last moment and she fitted us in a family room instead of a double at no extra cost. The breakfasts were hot and filling.
Keith, gb3 night trip
Good 6,0
Had only changed ownership a week before the stay so it was obvious that they were just setting in
Robert, gb2 night trip with friends
Very good 8,0
Comfortable room with everything that’s needed. I would consider staying again if I was to go back to Scarborough

Perfect family stay
I stayed here for 4 nights with two children aged 5 and 6. The staff were friendly, welcoming and professional. Checking in and out was simple. The room was clean, airy and comfortable. The ensuite shower was hot with fantastic water pressure. The dining room was clean and welcoming with a fantastic cooked breakfast and/or cereal. The location is central for the north bay and perfect walking distance to all the other sights we wanted to see (south bay beach and arcades, town center, sealife center, north bay railway, scarborough castle, peasholm park). Plenty to see and do with lots of eateries close by. Will definitely visit again.

Good stay. Great staff, nice breakfasts, parking was adequate but tight. Location is very good, nice room with a view of sea and castle. Would stay again.
