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

This was a good b&b situated not too far from anywhere in Scarborough. The beach, Peasholm park and town were all within walking distance. Gary ( the manager ) couldn't be more friendly and helpful even providing plates/cutlery if you turn up with fish and chips for tea. Breakfast was great although could have done with it being a little... More

The Dolphin Guest House lived up to its excellent Trip Advisor rating. It was warm (important in March!) and was immaculately clean throughout. Our room was lovely - it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The full English breakfast was excellent too. The proprietor was very welcoming and helpful. For example, we were able to leave our bags... More

We have just come back from a 2 night stay in a double at the Dolphin in Scarborough. The guesthouse has an excellent location not too far from the sea or the city centre. You also get a parking permit which is great and we never had any trouble finding a space near the guesthouse. Gary was really friendly and... More

We booked room 5, a family room for an overnight stay after Flamingo Land. The layout of the room is brilliant! Very clean, very pleasant stay. Gary makes for an excellent host and chef! He couldn't do enough to help and his recommendation for the evening meal was spot on! Looking to book again next year!
