Stayed for 2 nights in August 2014. Nice place, clean and the bed was huge!! Good tea and coffee making facilities. Plenty of wardrobe space if staying for longer than we did. Can't comment on the breakfast as we are not breakfast people. Overall nice clean place.

Stayed for two nights in room 8 and wished it could have been much longer. This was our second time at the Wharncliffe, and just like last time, everything was perfect. Great hosts, amazing breakfasts, and superb sea views. We felt comfortable and relaxed from the minute we arrived to the moment we left. We will definitely be back before... More

The rooms were clean and adequate for our needs but very dated and shabby. The welcome and service throughout our stay were poor however. The hotel appeared to be run entirely by the elderly owner and wife who I felt were uncommunicative and actually quite odd. I felt they made more effort with elderly guests and we were sidelined and... More

Stayed for two nights in July in room 12. Very nice room with a fantastic sea view and although the room was tucked into the roof of the building and accessed via several flights of stairs (not for the less mobile) it was worth it for the view that encompassed the whole of the north beach and beyond. Don't be... More

Thank you for taking the time to post an online review, and your comments. We did enjoy meeting you both. We agree that the view from Room 12 is beautiful; most people do think the view is worth the climb up the stairs! It wouldn't do for us to oversleep and not have breakfast ready for you on time, so... More

Stayed here 18th to 20th July as we went to Oliver's Mount road racing. Derek was very welcoming upon our arrival, gave us a good run down on all things we needed to know about the hotel and facilities. Our room was on a high floor, number 8 with fantastic views. The room was very comfortable and clean, the bedding... More

Hi, stayed two nights (arrived Friday afternoon, left Sunday morning) 20th - 22nd June for a weekend break. Easy to find and obvious bright red external décor, with views over the sea. Paid the extra £10 per room for the sea view, which made just £69.99 per night for the room, including full English breakfast. Just on the breakfast, this... More

Our 3rd visit and my wife and I both agree that it would be difficult to find a better place to stay in Scarborough. Great location with views of the north bay and castle and within walking distance of the town centre. Derek and Anne once again proved to be the perfect hosts, clean and comfortable room and fantastic breakfast.... More
