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.

A warm welcome on arrival by Gary, we were early but that wasn't a problem we got parked up and were able to leave our things and Gary put them in the room for us when it was ready, leaving us to...

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

Booked last minute to enjoy the sunshine and will rebook. Lovely room up in the attic, we have two teenagers and they really liked the fact that the bunkbeds were in a seperate room and they had their own TV. The owner was lovely, could not be more friendlier and the service from him and the young lady at brekky... More
