After a horrible experience in a hotel Scarborough, we went to Bats and Broomsticks the next day, needless to say I was a bit shell shocked from the previous hotel experience and was through with Hotels/Bed and Breakfasts and Guest Houses all together, however Bats and Broomsticks restored my faith in humanity and gave me hope in Hotels/B&B/Guesthouses again.

Fabulous, unique B&B with lots of fantastic Gothic detail throughout. Room & bathroom were clean and the lovely four poster bed was very comfy. Rooms are not ensuite, but each room has it's own bathroom (although it is a little strange having to make your way past a coffin to pop to the loo in the night). The candle lit... More

Perhaps I've been a bit mean in the rating, but in my opinion this place is on the good side of average. It certainly lives up to its advertising about being gothic themed, which is the reason I wanted to stop here. Kev the co-owner is lovely and friendly, and the room was big, if not a liddle bit rough... More

We stayed at Bats and Broomsticks last week for 3 nights, which was just as wonderful as the first time we stayed here. We stayed in the green man room, which had a good view of the abbey. Breakfast was excellent! The room was very clean and tidy and the host's where really helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked... More

We went for our anniversary and took our pup with us. On a morning he used to be greated with a sausage from the owners, and loved chilling in the restaurant with us. The room was very comfy, although i was slightly spooked walking past the coffin to use the bathroom haha. Kev was great, and we had a lovely... More
