We chose to stay here at the end of November because we were moving to Scarborough and fancied the luxury of a comfy bed for a couple of nights before tackling all those boxes. And luxury it proved to be, right down to underfloor heating in the ensuite and wonderful sea views. We found a very warm welcome from the... More

I stayed here with my partner while attending a conference at the university nearby: John was a very kind and generous host, the rooms were extremely comfortable and the hotel is perfectly positioned for wonderful views of the north and south bay.

A truly great holiday that we didn't want to have to pack to come home. The hotel is being updated, has a welcoming feel to it and cannot fault the staff. They were all very pleasant and polite and only too willing to help if you needed anything. The meals are buffet style which i thought was great as your... More

My father had his surprise birthday party and friends and family stayed in the hotel. What a fantastic time and stay had by all attended. Janet and John owners of The Castle By the sea are the nicest people you could meet, nothing is to much trouble and the hotel is spotless. The food is home made and tastes beautiful.... More

Fantastic hotel by the sea. Great location and good hospitality in the hotel staff. Good food. Rooms are fitted with good showers and decent TVs. Close to both the north and South Bays. Ships and bars are just a stroll away without detracting from the ambience. The hotel is inherent of its time and feels very quaint. Overall excellent.

Booked at short notice and needed to accommodate family of 5, which included an 11 year old, an 85 year old and a dog! From the first enquiry phone call - to the hug as we left, the customer service was exceptional. Rooms very good, parking a bonus, food and drinks available most of the day and great quality, only...

What a fantastic find!! Situated next to Scarborough Castle and with views to die for, I cannot recommend enough. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by John the owner. We were shown to our room which had a four poster bed, was very spacious and had recently been refurbished. We were surprised to have such a lovely room... More

I have just returned home after a lovely 2 night stay with 2 friends and would very highly recommend this hotel. The owners, John and Janet could not have been more welcoming or helpful, we arrived slightly early knowing our rooms would not be ready as we were transferring from different accomodation, they happily let me leave my car in...
