We stayed overnight in the basement apartment in late November. The apartment was clean and comfortable with a well set out kitchen including nice little touches of complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate. The lounge/dining room had a good size tv, comfy sofa, armchair and 6 seater table. There was a DVD player too. I thought a little DVD library would... More

Stayed for two nights at the end of November out of season from Saturday to Monday. Weather didn't stop us having an excellent time. After a warm welcome and being shown round the vast basement apartment, we enjoyed a really comfortable bed, a huge sitting room and kitchen with a dish washer for our dirty crockery (as the rooms were...

We booked the top floor Beach Life apartment for a three night stay. We were warmly greeted on our arrival by Kerry who showed us to the apartment and even helped to carry some of our bags up the stairs. The apartment was fabulous - very well equipped, spotlessly clean and had fantastic views of the North Bay. We had... More

We booked the basement apartment for a long weekend. It is ideally situated just a short walk from the town centre. We were warmly greeted on checkin and shown to the apartment and were very pleased when we saw it. It was spotlessly clean and very well presented. The kingsize bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows just perfect for... More

I spent my childhood in Scarborough and so enjoyed touring round the sights I remembered from 30 years ago. We stayed at the Helaina a year after first visiting it and once again it was fantastic. The view over the North Bay was terrific and the room was comfortable. The breakfast was great and set us up for a day's... More

Great little B&B a short walk from main areas in Scarborough......Kerry was a fabulous host who made us feel very welcome. Rooms small but spotlessly clean and although the hotel has no lifts the stairs were not a problem to us....after a few glasses of wine! Breakfast was excellent...freshly cooked...and a great selection.

Our room was bijou on the top floor of the house. It was clean, well appointed, warm with a good shower. However a noisy fan in the loft above our heads was irritating and meant broken sleep throughout the both nights of our stay. Apart from that the breakfast was excellent and the location on the seafront was perfect was... More

Fantastic welcome from Kerry - she is good! Very clean room, although a double sea view room is small, as is the shower. Best supply of tea/ coffee etc EVER (loved the filter coffee sachets as I only drink fresh coffee) and great biscuits, replenished every day. Nice towels/ robes etc. Bedding lovely and soft, obviously good quality, room cosy... More

We stopped for a night in room 9. The room was wonderfully decorated and equipped and although small, was perfect. The whole building has been renovated to a high standard. Breakfast was well presented and tasty and the staff were attentive and chatty. A credit to the management! The management issue parking discs to allow you to park for free... More

Stayed here for a weekend in the Sea view deluxe room (room 4) which has contemporary furniture and a big bay window overlooking the sea. The check-in was efficient and friendly and Kerry is a massive asset to this hotel. The room was quite spacious and modern. The bed was comfy but is quite low if an elderly couple was... More
