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

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for bringing the issue with the shower to our attention. It is one of those things that if no one says anything we don't know there is an issue. Will be sorted next time you are here. We have larger towels available on request (though we have missed this out of our literature... More

Breakfast was delicious, again Gillian asked if you needed anything else and constantly filled up the juice etc. The location was perfect if you enjoyed walking, although if you prefered to bus there was a regular bus between here and...

Thank you for your review. Good to see Michael's cooking skills appreciated. The room you stayed in is the smallest of our family rooms, this isn't helped by having the super king size bed in there. I hope the comfort of the bed outweighed the size of the room. Glad it did not effect your enjoyment of your stay. More

Very pleased with welcome we received even though we arrived rather late in the evening due to engine failure. Very comfortable bed and breakfast was spot on. Our small dog was made very welcome also.

Friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are clean with homely touches. Tea and coffee making facilities which were replenished daily. Gillian was a lovely host along with her son who made our stay exceptional. The location is great for seeing Scarborough and for visiting Whitby and Bridlington. Bempton cliffs are not far away and we were lucky... More
