The owners Karen and Nick go out of their way to be welcoming and friendly. We also spent the following evening in there and had a great... More

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 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
