I found the Cavendish welcoming and comfortable. The proprietor was very polite, warm and welcoming, as well as very professional in providing me with everything I might need. The hotel itself is small and a bit dated, but well presented and clean (though there is a lingering smell from the kitchen that is rather unpleasant). I booked a single room... More

The hotel is clean and rooms were spacious if a little dark, but it was a pleasant place, it is on a reasonably quiet road some distance from the centre. We had a decent nights sleep and... More

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome by Jo. The room that we had was very spacious, a comfortable bed and very bright & clean. I also liked the little extras - a bowl of sweets, chocolates, box of tissues, cleansing lotion and body lotion. The meals are lovely, all fresh food, a choice of fresh fish... More

I booked 3 rooms for a conference, using this site to help with the choice. The rooms were all spacious & very comfy, fresh milk in a fridge on the landing instead of uht containers, nice lounge if you wish to use it. with magazines,TV & wii available. but it's Robs cooking that really makes this place special, 5 choices...

Myself and my partner have just returned from a one night stay at the Cavendish. Overall this is a lovely b & b. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The added extras like sweets and biscuits were nice. It was in a quieter part of Scarborough which was nice and it felt more... More

Chose The Cavendish after researching on Trip Advisor and we were not let down. Lovely B&B with great hosts Rob and Jo. Place was immaculate and breakfast superb. Very handy for the Spa and 10 mins walk to the Town Centre. Had a lovely break and we will be back.

Hi Rob and Jo. Thankyou sooo much for your hospitality. We have stayed in many establishments within the UK and abroad but your lovely hotel beats them all hands down. We were a party of 8 ladies and not one of us had abad word to say about this place.Previous reviewers say it all. Location, hospitality, accommodation and our breakfasts... More
