Small and friendly, clean and tidy, good location
Temporary tenants just taken it over, they are lovely, I suspect they have been dropped in the deep end but they were very sociable and friendly. The hotel needs lots of updating, both decor and plumbing, that said, we had no problem with it at all, but other guests may well have as it’s not that cheap. It’s a good location for the spa, and about a 15 min walk into town, we parked on the road right outside, no problem. The breakfast was lovely. I would stay again.

Excellent pub hotel.
I had an excellent stay. It is really a good pub with a few beds. The service was faultless and the food was very good. Room pleasant enough but a grab handle needed in shower which had a high step. Would certainly go back but much of the good things come from the current proprietors who are leaving next week. Who knows what the future will bring.?

Two night stay for the cricket.
This was a two night stay to watch the cricket. This is a quiet, traditional hotel with brilliant views and with easy walking access to the town centre. Parking is free, as is the wifi, which works well, and the breakfasts are excellent. This is the best hotel we have found in Scarborough.

A Scarborough Gem
Highlander Hotel is a fantastic hotel and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are bright, spacious, comfortable and clean. The seaview rooms have a great view of South Bay. The food is great and plentiful, leaving you feeling full. The location is excellent for all amenities.

Recommended for location and value for money
Hard working Karen was welcoming and helpful. Big room with sofa and a fine view across the bay, comfy bed, separate large bathroom with good shower and bath, all very clean. South Cliff location has stunning views yet easy access to town facilities. Good breakfast, efficiently served. Could not access wi-fi on my non-Apple phone. Windows would not open which could be a problem in warm weather.
