Had a great time at the Tamarind, our children haven't stayed in a guest house before and they thoroughly enjoyed it! We had a family room on the top floor which was newly renovated - everything brand new and very clean! Super large shower, lots of hot water, warm room and very comfortable beds (a king size bed and bunks).... More

Tamarind Guest House is a Great B&B, I have been staying here since October 2014 Monday-Friday as I have being Contracting in Scarborough. One thing that is needed when working away is to stay somewhere that is clean, comfy and homely and the Tamarind is all 3! The newly refurbished rooms are fantastic and are a pleasure to stay in....

We were looking for accommodation for a one night stopover to attend a family party. Tamarind Guest House offered us their family room, and two double rooms all en-suite on their newly renovated top floor. Our grown up family had driven from Sussex and Kent, so to have a smooth check-in wonderful clean rooms and great local knowledge about the... More

Happy new year A refreshing change to the tired old B&Bs, Chris very friendly and helpful, lots of local knowledge. New Year Prosecco on arrival. Good clean room with all new fixtures and fittings. Quiet location yet less than five minutes walk from sea front. We will definitely return.

We stayed Friday 05 December 2014. The Guest House is in a good central situation, we had a comfortable room, and enjoyed a good breakfast. Best of all, Chris is a very engaging and very helpful host!

We stayed on Thursday (in the October half term holiday), my Girlfriend and our 6 year old Boy. We usually stay on the front with a seaview if we come to Scarborough, however we were struggling to get anywhere at short notice and the Tamarind came up after a quick Google search. I can only echo what other reviews have... More

I've stayed at the Tamarind 4 or 5 times now while working in the Scarborough area, since it was taken over by Chris. He's been making a spectacular effort at improving the place, carrying out alterations and redecoration week by week. Jackie does a marvelous job of housekeeping too, keeping it very clean, comfortable and making it a real home... More

Thanks for your kind review and postive comments, parking in any popular tourist destination can be sometimes tricky which is why we supply parking permits for overnight stays and 'discs' for those arriving late and going early, even if the main run is busy a space can always be found in nearby streets around the lovely Peasholm Park area.
