We have stayed here so many times its about time we gave it the review it deserves. Lovely guest house which is conveniently situated. It's a few minute walk to the beautiful park with boats and a chinese water garden. The beach is 5 minutes away and the town is within walking distance. Its clean and the bedrooms are good... More

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.

We stayed here for 2 nights in the summer & were given the attic room. The room was tiny, the bed creaked & the mattress was really uncomfortable. Once the suitcases were in the room there was no space for us. The TV was tiny, on top of the wardrobe, with little reception & a remote control that didn't work... More

We stayed last weekend and had a fab time. The hotel is spotless, the breakfast is amazing and for the price you couldn't stay any where better or ask for any more. We had the family room which was more than adequate for our needs and there was free wifi and free parking too!!! We would definitely stay again 😄
