We haven't stayed in the North Bay area which is a little run down. The Helaina is the best cared for property in this area and the views of the bay are stunning. We chose the location as it's no more than a 15 minute walk to the open air theatre where we were attending an 80's concert. We received... More

Good presentation from outside, stood out. Warm, friendly and effusive greeting from Auntie Linda who was standing in for the owners who were away on holiday. Everything explained and car parking permits issued. A deluxe room with bay window and sea view had been booked and what a view it was of the North Bay. Comfortable armchairs in the bay... More

Booked very late, but what a choice, I don't think a could have made a better choice if I had searched for days. Great host and staff very attentive and helpful, spotlessly clean everywhere, breakfast, beautiful. I can't fault this hotel and would recommend it to anyone, just hope it doesn't fill up too quickly next time we want to... More

Stayed in one of their premium room with bay window and sea view. Beautiful and very comfortable room with the most comfortable bed we have slept in away from home. Food and service excellent, cannot fault anything with this hotel.

First impressions are excellent, room small but it does state this on the website and it is done to a very good standard, staff extremely friendly and helpful, overall I would highly recommend the Helaina.

Booked this well in advance and on arrival we were given a sea view room. Fantastic views of the castle and the North Bay. The room was tastefully furnished and had a large double bed that was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was superb and the staff friendly and helpful. Great choice.

We cannot recommend this place enough. Quiet, overlooking the sea, clean and comfortable with the most comfortable bed in the world! We stayed in a self catering apartment with a stunning sea view for three nights and had a really lovely time. Can't wait to return - possibly for B&B next time instead of self catering! Highly recommended.

We had an overnight stay in Scarborough and were delighted with the Helaina. It has everything you need and the service is excellent. Breakfast was fabulous in an attractive appointed dining room. Would definitely recommend - thank you

Situated perfectly overlooking the sea it is ideally placed. we had a room on the third floor which although compact had every available amenity. Breakfast was excellent, with a wonderful choice and the service from Kerry also... More
