We stayed overnight on the spur of the moment and booked through Booking.com The location is superb, right next to the lovely Peasholme Park and a short walk for a nice bus ride along the North And South front into town. Superbly decorated to a modern but relaxing homely feel and immaculately clean. Breakfast was out of this world, with... More

Great to return to my favourite hotel in Scarborough again in order to watch Yorkshire CCC. Some 15 minutes from the ground and a walk through or around Peasholm Park, the Lysander Hotel is ideally situated for visiting the home of Scarborough CC to watch County cricket. I must admit I am somewhat reluctant to do this review as most... More

The hosts were very friendly and all the staff were very pleasant and went out of their way to help... More

Nice quiet location within walking distance of the beach, takes approximately 15/20 minutes to walk into the town although there are buses that run frequently. The hotel itself is very clean, our room was a smaller double but still plenty of room, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all...

Stayed here for 3 nights in a single room, had everything I needed and very helpful, friendly staff. Full english breakfast is just what is needed in the morning as well as a smile from all the waitresses.

i couldn`t fault this bed and breakfast for friendliness, cleanliness and lovely breakfast, however the room was so tiny that was difficult to find space to sort out my belongings. Difficult for 2 people to manouver around each other.
