It's the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel and we wouldnt stay anywhere else in Scarborough. We always book in for new year's weekend and have an amazing stay. Garry is such a welcoming and friendly person who can't do enough for you. The guest house is spotless and so clean, I really can't fault anything about it.... More

We visited as a family of 5 for 3 nights and we all wish we could have stayed longer. Gary is by far the nicest host I have ever encountered. Such a welcoming smile and genuine friendliness. The location is perfect for north Bay. The breakfast is lovely. Tons of cereal and toast. Coffee pots and giant tea pots and... More

A friend and I spent four nights at the Dolphin last week (October 12th - 15th) and found it an excellent establishment; Gary was a charming, helpful and considerate host, we were told to just ask for anything we needed. Because I always feel the cold, another blanket was provided and the heating was turned up! The rooms were large,spacious... More

Stayed for a couple of days last weekend, it was spotless and the breakfast was spot on. Gary was very friendly the only downside was I couldnt get the shower to mix hot and cold together so had to have a bath , which I hate. Though in fairness I forgot to tell him about this before we left.

We asked for the family room again and was not disappointed. Spotlessly clean, kids thought it was so exciting staying there! Gary is an excellent host, nothing has changed! The boyfriend has been looking forward to having the full English since last visit and it lived up to expectations! Perfect location, great price!

Stayed with Gary again for our 2nd time this year. We asked for the same room as last time and Gary was able to accomodate this for us. Nothing is ever too much to ask. Brilliant hotel and will be coming back again. Thanks Jonathan & Vicci

just arrived home from a very clean and friendly guesthouse, Gary the owner was so helpful carrying our luggage from the car as we was travelling as a family with our 6month granddaughter. A lovely cooked breakfast every morning and was brilliant when we needed any thing for our granddaughter. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return

Travelling alone with my young son I was a bit wary about stopping in a guesthouse but we had a lovely time. Gary, our host, made us feel so welcome. He carried my case up to our room which was beautifully decorated with a basket of toiletries, tea and biscuits and a chocolate mint each! We were able to come... More
