Clean and comfortable. Free wifi. Gary the host provides a good cooked breakfast. Good value for the price. Central position and 1 minutes walk to Peasholm Park. B&B on a main road so some road noise also noisy seagulls in the Morning. I guess Gary can't be held personally responsible for the seagulls though !! :-)

We received a very warm welcome by guesthouse owner Gary. He made us a perfect cup of tea on arrival and carried our bags up to our room. The room had a private bathroom, both were clean and airy. There were tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The bed was very comfortable and gave us a great night's sleep, the... More

Just spent a couple of nights here. Friendly welcome and clean rooms. Excellent breakfast all freshly prepared. Would recommend this guest house to others. On street parking with permits plenty of space managed to get parked straight outside the hotel. Short walk to town and just a couple of minutes from peaseholme park.

I had the pleasure of staying at the dolphin with my young daughter and dad for a few nights and felt that I should sing its praises on here. If you are after a well located, clean, tidy and welcoming place to stay then look no further. The proprietor, Gary, is everything that a true professional should be and clearly... More

This is a very pleasant house in a decent location. We left the car outside and walked all around Scarborough. It's right next to an amazing park and near the beach. Positives: Location, service, good size room (2), friendly warm welcome, clean. Negatives: Maintenance of premises isn't proactive. Would we stay again? Yes. Without doubt.

Booked this guesthouse for a last minute break and it couldn't have been better. The proprietor Gary was extremely welcoming, offering tea/coffee in the lounge on arrival and insisting on taking our luggage up to the room. Parking is by permit only but we were given a permit on arrival (at no extra cost). Our room was very clean and... More
