We decided to book a late weekend away and did not hesitate to stay at The Mountview Hotel in Scarborough again. Wonderful breakfast, clean room, and we were made to feel very welcome. It is a pleasure to stay there and we would highly recommend the hotel to others.

My partner, myself and my grand-daughter stayed there recently. Our room was very nice and Michelle made us feel at home. My grand-daughter is sometimes a bit picky at breakfast, but again Michelle made a suggestion for her to try something different and we were delighted that she ate everything. We came back early both nights as we have a... More

Nice breakfast and the owner Michelle is very accommodating. I lost my keys, went to the car with them Saturday morning and when I returned they had... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are pleased you both enjoyed your stay with us. With regard to the lost keys we have had to previously replace our door locks with high security locks, after a guest decided to take it upon himself to go and get a spare key cut! Unfortunately any spare keys... More

Really good value for money. A friendly welcome. Room provided all the usual amenities of a traditional seaside Bed and Breakfast, was clean and comfortable. Especially good breakfast. Just a short walk to the seafront in a pleasant location. Would stay again.

A lovely warm welcome from the Scarborough fog. The room was a little small for a double but perfectly suitable for single occupancy. My bathroom was along the corridor but this wasn't a problem with a toilet and washbasin in the room. The full English breakfast was generally excellent and a perfect start to the day. Michelle was very helpful... More

We were weclomed in from the fog and rain with a hot drink and cake. Michelle sat with us and took the time to explain the local area and provide us with a map. The guest house is character and inkeeping with Scarborough. Our room was well maintained and very comfortable. The only downside I can think of is the... More

Because my trip was paid for by someone else I cannot say much about the price-performance ratio. What I can say, however, is that Michelle is the most lovely host and she really cared for me and my companions - on a first-name basis, and with much attention. The rooms were very clean, well-kept and quiet, the kingsize bed in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Graham and Michele invite you to stay at The Mountview where a warm welcome is always on hand to greet you. We pride ourselves on giving everyone at The Mountview a comfortable and enjoyable stay. A private, family run establishment with a strict non-smoking policy, which was formerly given a four star rating from VisitBritain but has now been awarded a Certificate of Quality Assurance by the Yorkshire Coast Tourism Association. Enjoy a comfortable relaxing breakfast in our lovely sunny Victorian dining room. For breakfast, choose from our table of cereals and juices, followed by a full English Breakfast, poached or scrambled eggs or continental breakfast.We have seven comfortable en-suite rooms plus one bedroom with its own private bathroom. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and equipped with colour television, tea and coffee making facilities, alarm clock and hair dryers. Two rooms are on the ground floor and have their own front door! One a spacious suite, accommodating up to four people and ideal for families. Discounts for OAP’s. Additional charges will apply for peak periods, single occupancy in a double room and one night stays. The Mountview’s excellent location means it is only two or three minutes walk from the Esplanade, where you will enjoy one of the finest views on the east coast - stretching from the picturesque harbour, across to the sea-swept cliffs reaching south toward Filey Brigg. Take the cliff lift down to the Spa, or walk along one of the many paths leading through the Italian & Rose Gardens. Or maybe stroll along the cliff top to town and enjoy the mix of specialist shops and high street names, which offer a wide choice for shopping or browsing. The Mountview is easily accessible from the town's rail & coach station, and a regular bus service can drop you nearly outside the door. The Mountview enjoys ample free on-street parking. ... more   less
