10/10 fot the HIGHLANDER. Pub of the year 2014. This family run hotel is a must for people visiting Scarborough, home cooked food at quality prices, cask conditioned ales, high quality rooms all en suite. Quiz night on a Thursday is a must, great atmosphere and allways a warm welcome

Have just got back from our stay at the Highlander - my husband and I were having a weekend break. We're no strangers to Scarborough, but having really enjoyed the food and atmosphere in the Highlander when we stopped by last year, we thought we would give staying here a go this time around. And so glad we did! The... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in October 2014. We had a second floor rear room which was very spacious with a double bed, two singles, settee, coffee table and TV and wardrobe and dressing table. Absence of bedside tables. Bathroom was quite dated but well equipped with hair-dryer and shower over bath. We only had breakfasts during... More

I stayed at this hotel/pub for two nights during August 2014. There are only, I think, six rooms, accessible by lift or stairs. On the ground floor there is a bar (where food is served) and a breakfast room for residents. On checking in, I was shown to the 'Carlsberg Room' on the third floor, overlooking the Esplanade and sea.... More

The Highlander is a quaint little place with a plaid carpet that's been vacuumed to within an inch of its life...not a speck of dust to be seen. Reasonably priced food, very pleasant staff and a friendly local clientele. Would certainly go there again.

The Highlander is excellently located on an elevated road with views around the South Bay (see photo) - this must be one of the best addresses in Scarborough, providing a pleasant environment away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront and town-centre. On arrival, I had trouble finding the right entrance to check in, but discovered that the reception... More

We needed a hotel for an overnight stay, having booked tickets to see Status Quo, at the Open Air Theatre, searching the internet I came across the Highlander and booked. We arrived earlier than the check in time, but were allowed into our room by the friendly barman Craig, and supplied with a disk for the on road parking. In... More
