spotless, warm, cosy, wonderful landlady, very minor faults, I had a single room, good size, but tv was on a wall bracket above the en suite door, so the only way you could watch it way lying down, and still gave crick in neck, so used free wi fi to watch on lap top, also no radio in room, a...

Thank you for your review. We are in the process of improving the rooms since we took over. We will look into moving the TV when we refurbish that room. The TV itself has freeview which does include some radio channels, but we are adding radios when we do the rooms. More

Very friendly and helpful, breakfast was always on time, so no waiting around if you wanted to go out early. I thought there might have been a problem with car parking, thist was totally unfounded. We found the experience for the three days we were there very nice and pleasant. I would recommend Rose Dene to anyone.

Rose dean is very clean from top to bottom and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Great full... More

Thank you for your review. The en suite is on the small side which is why we have a vanity unit in the room as well. So many people have told us how useful this is, especially when getting ready to go out. More

A good size room for a single. Only a short walk to the scenic North Bay and to Europe's largest outdoor theatre. A 15 minutes walk to the town centre. The proprietors were personable and helpful. Breakfast was a good varied selection and I liked the fact that you did your own toast because unlike a lot of other hotels... More

Thank you for your review. It is amazing how many people do not know about the theatre or that it is the largest in Europe. Maybe it is because it is set in the park and from the outside you would not know it was there. More

The house was clean and the rooms a decent size. The food was good however the cooked breakfast portions were quite small. Parking was very limited but that does seem to be an issue at most places in Scarborough

Thank you for your review. The car park is limited though you did manage to park both your vehicles in it. Free permits are available to park on the road. Our car park is one of the largest on the Ravine. The Full English breakfast consists of seven items and fills the plate. If you do not want everything we... More

This is a very friendly and pleasant hotel serving delicious home-cooked full English breakfasts. The owner is very helpful and one is able to come and go without any problems. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
