Our family stayed at Lyness for a long weekend and had a lovely time! The rooms were very clean & tidy and it was a short walk into town and to the sea. Highlight had to be the breakfast! David & Val couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. Thank you!

Great location within Scarborough - closer to North Bay but the South bay is still easily accessible. Really clean room with all amenities on hand. Lovely breakfast with everything you could want. The owners were very friendly and welcoming which added to a perfect stay. Would definitely recommend and looking forward going back very soon.
