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.

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!

Our arriving early was no problem for Gary. We have stayed here before and the welcome was, as ever, a happy one. Gary's enthusiasm and pleasant nature, makes staying here a great time. We feel like his friends rather than guests. He would take time out to talk to us (morning or night) and have a laugh,great guy! Pleasant rooms... More

On arriving we were greeted by the owner, Gary who is exceptional; he is friendly,... More
