I stayed at this hotel/pub for two nights during August 2014. There are only, I think, six rooms, accessible by lift or stairs.

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 always eat at the Highlander hotel as the food is all home made and absolutely delicious. The service is great and all the staff are very friendly. Also the location is great with plenty of room to eat outside if you choose to. See you all again soon. whiskeylil

Best bar pint of beer in Yorkshire!! Room and bathroom clean, spacious and good decoration. We had stunning sea views from our room. I left my phone charger behind--no... More
