Stayed two nights. Hosts friendly. First place we have had to make our own toast for breakfast. Apart from that breakfast ok. Nice big bedroom with plenty of drawer space but very little hanging space. Very difficult getting in and out of bed as there was a wall on one side and little room on the other. We were in... More

We ask guests to help themselves at our breakfast bar, to enable us to cook and serve the main breakfast. We are happy to cook toast for those ask. though most people prefer to... More

My review is based on the fact that I was on a business visit _ it may well be that it represents better value/standard if on a holiday visit. I did not find the food particularly appealing or to my taste / expectations of standard _ however that is poorly a personal opinion and it may be very suitable to... More

I am somewhat confused by your review. We are aimed primarily at the holiday market as is our property description. However we try to accommodate where we can. I produced a table for you to use in your room. (There was also a guest lounge you could have used). Evening meals are not a viable business proposition for a small... More

The owner are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well cooked with a reasonable choice. The room was clean but a little on the small side and was the shower only just space to shower very little wriggle room. The internet intermittent and slow. Overall good value for money.

Thank you for your review. Thank you for informing us about the internet I will look into how we can improve it in this room. I agree the en-suite is compact, but the shower is a standard size. The room itself I feel is a good size for a single. It has been used as a double room in the... More

We always stay here when visiting Scarborough, which is usually when there is racing at Oliver's Mount. Its a biker friendly B & B, and is a 20-25 minute walk to the pedestrian entrance of the Mount. Its also handy for town, the sea front or Peasholm Park etc. Although there has been a change of hands recently, Gillian and... More

Thank you for your review. There is always more pressure to please guests who have stayed with the previous owners. So it is good that you have been with us on more than one occasion, it means we must be doing something right. More
