Firstly I had just suffered a stroke and phoned 2 weeks earlier to confirm our room was not to high. I was told our friends and ourselves were all on the first floor. When we got there we were talked to like children and told the rules of the house not welcomed and then to make matter worse were given... More

Thank you for your feedback. In the future, to avoid any confusion, we will ensure that we only discuss group bookings with the party organiser, who in this case booked one room on the first floor and other rooms as available. We do make it clear in the Access Statement and on our website that we do not have a... More

We have spent a weekend in room 12, top floor of the hotel with a sea view. We have thoroughly enjoyed it. The host, Derek, is a lovely gentleman, always happy to help and gave us advice on places to visit, nothing was enough trouble. The view was amazing, we sat at times with a cuppa and just looked out... More

If you visit Scarborough, try the Wharncliffe Hotel you won't regret it. We enjoyed our stay and will recommend others to stay here with no worries whatsoever.Ann and Derek are quietly present in the background and are always friendly and helpful on local restaurants etc etc If we visit Scarborough again we will stay at the Wharncliffe.

My wife and I stayed at the Wharncliff for a week (23 - 30 Aug 15). The Hotel is extremely well run by Derek and Ann. Derek is the perfect host but unfortunately we never saw Ann who appears to prefer not to be seen front of house. The hotel is spick and span and Derek couldn't be more helpful.... More

Excellent hotel with a really good choice of things for breakfast and outstanding cooked breakfast. Would not have second thoughts about staying there again. Free WiFi in all room. King size bed in room we had. I would recommend room 11 as it has sea view, en suite and large room.x

Stayed August 11th to 13th and stayed in room 3. Lovely view, spotlessly clean room, tea and coffee etc plus toiletries. Friendly owners and a lovely breakfast, and the really nice weather was a bonus. The hotel is handy for Peasholm Park and all North bay attractions. Will be back again ASAP.

Once we asked for this on the first day it was provided each day. Best of all was the breakfast, we like fruit to start the day and they... More
