We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel and the price was similar to others in the area. The room was small but very clean and the breakfast and service was very good. We would more than happily stay there again and recommend it to others.

Sylvern House was a great place to stay in the lovely seaside town of Scarborough. The location is perfect, just a half block from Queen's Parade, the upper road along the beautiful shoreline. Breakfast was good, the beds were comfy, and the hosts were very cordial and helpful. The only downside was that we were on the third floor (2nd... More

We were invited to complete a breakfast order form on arrival with a huge choice of items and our breakfasts were served freshly cooked. Breakfast time was... More

A nice, good, old fashioned guest house. Lovely people running it, a great choice of breakfasts, and a nice clean room. Room 3 is not the largest room we have ever stayed in, but we put our bags it the wardrobe with no problem for space. Will definitely stay here again. Up The Quo !
