My wife and I recently stayed one night for a last minute weekend away. The owners could not have been nicer and helped us plan the weekend with recommendations for what to do, where to eat and useful directions. We only stayed one night so booked the smallest room and were very happy with it. I can honestly say I... More

Accommodation lovely. However if your booking make sure breakfast is included or you'll be charged extra on arrival. A little odd for a bed and breakfast. Also felt a little rushed by the owner at breakfast who seemed to want to get on with his days cleaning.

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

We booked late and were allocated a top floor room which was very clean and tidy but it was so small that we had difficulty moving around.The shower had low water pressure and it was not very good at all. 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...
