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.

Went with my walking group for the weekend and had a fantastic time. Julie, Andy ,Hillary and Beth all made our stay feel more than home from home, very relaxed and friendly, they really made our short break,. Food fantastic and rooms exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. Looking forward to going back again.

Excellent B+B Great position on the North Bay close to Peasholme Park, miniature railway and bus link over to the South Bay (£2 return). Exceptionally clean and well decorated. Lovely room, comfy bed and everything you need. Plenty of hot water and a strong shower! Stunning breakfast. Fantastic friendly hosts.

Andy's welcome on our arrival was warm and friendly and he was helpful in suggesting somewhere to eat (we arrived only at 8.30 in the evening). We were made to feel welcome throughout our stay. You could not ask for a better host. We did not... More

The Lysander is impressive in many ways for a small family run hotel. Above all it is absolutely spotless and in an ideal location to explore Scarborough! Andy and Julie and all of the other staff we met were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast choices were varied, always fresh and the full English was always... More
