This is a real gem. The team at the Helaina are friendly, helpful and make you feel so 'at home'. The rooms are clean, well furnished and the beds were great. You will note that I am using the plural as we stayed in both the hotel and the self catering apartments. The stairs might be a challenge for the... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a trip up north. The staff are extremely friendly and hardworking, nothing is too much trouble! There was a good selection at breakfast and the sea view could not be beaten. From our room at the front we could see the castle, the beach below and the north bay. A... More

I've just returned from a short stay in Scarborough with my at the Helaina apartment. It was wonderful!! The decor, furnishings and fixtures were superb, beds comfortable, views exceptional, and whole apartment spotlessly clean. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Scarborough. It's perfect and worth every penny. Wish I was still there!
