There is no other b&b like it! The views, rooms and location are fabulous. The work of painter Atkinson Grimshaw is a feature throughout as he was resident here in late 1800s. The owners are working hard to restore this house and there is a way to go yet. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast cooked to order. Very... More

Booked the room by phone, and later found we could get away earlier. Called at hotel on the off chance to see if we could stay a night early. John jumped through hoops to help us. The room was comfortable the food was excellent and the view was to die for.

We booked the night before we traveled so booking accommodation was tough. This hotel is brilliantly situated with beautiful view of the sea. The bedroom and new en suit were fine, but the selling point of the hotel are the views, the fantastic staff and the location. The couple are extremely friendly and helpful!

Came here for two nights with my husband. We booked last minute and didn't know what to expect. What a lovely little hotel it turned out to be. John, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. Handy having parking, as if you visit Scarborough often, you will know parking for hotels is a nightmare. Location was brilliant, close to town... More

We popped in for lunch as they are dog friendly. Very impressed with food , hot, fresh & homemade & friendly & efficient service. Wish we had known that dogs were welcome as we'd have booked in there. Highly recommended to dog lovers!

Had a great night here. Beautiful old rooms and old quaint hotel literally 2 mi Utes from the castle. Has a beautiful veranda to look out to sea. Owners are a delight and totally look after you. They even have rooms if you have dogs or any other animals. Breakfast us in a large old dining room and U.S. whatever... More

We first came to this hotel a couple of years ago following a late decision to take a break and desperation to find somewhere that would accept a small dog. Under those circumstances we didn't expect much. We soon found that the place had history and character. We first stayed in room 2. It is amply sized, the bed is... More

We were in Room 2 which was lovely. Comfy chairs and bed, large ensuite with lovely towels and toiletries. The room had all you needed in terns of hair dryer, iron and plentiful supplies of tea and coffee. It was a Seaview room which had amazing views over the North Bay. There was a shared patio outside the room which... More
