Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay in this very stylish, comfortable and welcoming B & B. Had a 'Bijou' double on the top floor which was was spotlessly clean and more spacious than many a hotel room I've stayed in. Oodles of complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate drinks, rather than the meagre rations you sometimes get, plus bath robe.... More

Stayed here for two nights midweek. Lovely warm welcome from 'Libby' who was very helpful in recommending restaurants. The 'double bijoux' room with a sea view didn't disappoint, and neither did the choice on offer at breakfast. What was a little disappointing was that we never saw our hosts over the entire three days we were there which left us... More

Spent 2 nights at this bed and breakfast, due to late booking, we were limited in our room choice, however the room we got, although a bit on the small side, was nipping clean and well presented. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much bother for them. The breakfast's are superb and set you up for the... More

4 of us stayed at the Helaina over the May Bank Holiday weekend and I have to say we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff very helpful. Breakfast very good but in Yorkshire I did expect Black Pudding to be available. Beds are excellent and I slept better than at home. Thoroughly recommended. There... More

I stayed at this place about 8 years ago - the reviews were good then and if anything the place has only got better. I had a lovely room (#4) with amazing views out to the Castle and the North bay. If you're going to stay here the spring for the extra £££ for a sea view, it really is... More

This was our second stay in the top floor Beach Life apartment. Once again the apartment was spotlessly clean and the climb up all the stairs is worth it for the fabulous view. The apartment is very comfortably furnished and equipped well for self-catering. We had a wonderful weekend, especially our day at Bempton Cliffs. I'm sure we'll be back... More

Stayed here for 4 days over half term, and would definitely return and recommend. The cottage is only 200m from south bay but after a short, uphill walk you are greeted by fantastic views and tranquillity (bar the seagulls!) Brilliantly situated for both bays and nearby resorts. The quirky accommodation is set out over 4 floors - very spacious, well... More
