First time staying in Scarborough and visiting with family for a week's summer holiday. As first impressions go, I had to double check the overall cost for the week - value for money doesn't quite describe how good this place is and what you get. On arriving we were greeted by the owner, Gary who is exceptional; he is friendly,... More

Was a lovely experience, close to town, the sea and Peasholm Park. Ever so friendly, very clean and with a tasty and plentiful breakfast and was always asked if needed anymore toast. We were made to feel very welcome and we would definitely return. Brilliant holiday.

A little known gem I stayed at with my wife after reading previous reviews, in a great location for north cliff and the park and a pleasant stroll to the more tourist south cliff. Rooms were very clean well presented and well equipped for a very competitive price!!, the owner was welcoming and more than willing to assist. An A+... More

We booked this b and b based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. We had a fantastic stay in an ideal location. The owner (Gary) was brilliant. Travelling with 3 children can be a challenge but not here. The family room was a super size and Gary was more than happy to put our youngest child's milk in the... More

My partner and I had a great time in Scarborough staying at The Dolphin. The owner Gary took great care of us. The English breakfast was great everyday, delicious and a great start to the day. Every day we knew we were OK because we really did have a home away from home. The room was very nice and very... More
