Stayed her with a few other couples over a weekend in September for the wifes birthday. The Lysander is a pleasant B&B with nice & friendly staff. The rooms are very clean and well equipped with kettle, LCD tv and hot drinks etc. We had booked a superior room at an extra cost and if I'm honest I struggled to... More

There were loads of us in Scarborough for a wedding - we stayed three nights bed & breakfast - everything was lovely - the rooms and breakfast - would not hesitate to stay here again. The owners went out of their way to make sure everything was alright for us.

Booked last minute for August Bank holiday break and were very lucky to find this guest house which provided a very high standard with our standard double bedroom being of a good size providing ample hanging and drawer space and large comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean with an equally spotlessly clean good sized en-suite shower room, with the shower itself being... More

I had a fantastic experience at the Lysander. The hotel is in a lovely location, handy for all Scarborough has to offer but also far enough away to provide a nice peaceful place to stay. The Lysander is a modern hotel but with homely features. It is by far the cleanest place I have ever stayed which is great for... More

This was a great discovery. We could not fault this place. A friendly welcome by mine host, a spotless room, a fine breakfast served by first class staff, parking available so that the car never had to move and recommendations for where to eat which proved most helpful and accurate. Anyone who wishes to be close to the North Bay... More
