We spent three nights at Rose Dene with two rooms. One room for my parents and the other for my husband, myself and our baby. We were all extremely impressed with the quality of the accommodation and the friendliness and helpfulness of the host Sandra. Travelling with a baby (with food allergies), Sandra went out of her way to make... More

Can't add much to what the majority of other guests have said. I turned up here 'on spec' with my 6 year old daughter quite late on and was well received and made to feel welcome. The room was lovely - clean and fresh feel - and the breakfast was excellent in both quality and quantity. Good value too. Thanks!

Just had a short stay in Scarborough and would highly recommend this guesthouse. The bedrooms are well furnished and spotless. The breakfasts were excellent with everything you could wish for. The proprietor (Sandra) is very friendly and helpful. The location and access is good and there is some off street parking. Would highly recommend

We stayed in Rose Dene for the first time this Summer. It is a lovely and cosy guest house, located very close to the beach and the park. Sandra had been so friendly and helpful with all of our queries. The breakfast was lovely! Really enjoyed our stay there!

On arrival at Rose Dene we were able to park outside. There is enough parking, but by the time we left it was a tight squeeze. The B&B is well placed close to the north beach area. We found the beds in twin format, which was offered to be moved to double format - but we elected to have it... More

Stayed here for two nights for the first weekend in August after a last minute decision to spend a long weekend on the Yorkshire coast. Although we arrived earlier than expected we were warmly greeted and welcomed by Rose Dene's owner Sandra. She is an absolute gem! She helped us with our luggage and showed us to our room, and...
