On arrival, we we're greeted by John who helped us in with our cases. Once unpacked, we had their 'cream tea'. Wonderful home made produce; impeccably served, whilst we relaxed for the afternoon in the conservatory area with our dog. John's recommendation of a local 'dog friendly' pub that evening proved an ideal choice for real ale, super food and... More

Stayed for 2 nights after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and was very happy with the place. Came alone and I must say John and Janet were very attentive and made me feel very welcomed and looked after. The place is overlooks the North Bay and the view was amazing - even caught a sunset! Located quite near the South... More

We booked a 3 night stay here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The hotel is in a perfect location with fantastic views. It is high up, between the North & South bays, I have mobility issues but managed to get around ok. We stayed in room 5, which was a good size with patio... More

We had a two night break at this hotel ( we have stayed here before). We received a relaxed friendly welcome. We stayed in a room which had a roof terrace with table and chairs and a fantastic view over the north bay. The room had been modernised, and had a new shower room with under floor heating. Full english... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Nestled under the remains of Scarborough Castle the views are spectacular. Close by is St Mary's Church where the remains of the author Anne Bronte are. Importantly guests are well cared for by John and Janet who also welcome dogs. You will definitely want to go back.
