We happened across this tea room and guest house on a day out in Scarborough. The views from the conservatory tea room over the north bay are beautiful. The owner was welcoming and the homemade scones were excellent. We were provided with hot water for our baby food and looked after very well. I would definitely return.

The views from the Castle by the Sea tea rooms are simply amazing. Hidden away between Scarborough`s two bays, it is well worth taking the time to find. Delicious sandwiches and cakes are all home made on the premises. The bakewell tart has to be the best I have ever tasted. Don`t miss it when you are in Scarborough. Apparently... More

Our two night stay at The Castle by the Sea, was a late Christmas present from my sister. We had two nights bed, breakfast and dinner. On arrival we were shown around this unusual and unique hotel. We stayed in room one which was very modern and had a new bath/shower room. The doors opened straight out onto the terrace... More

We had an overnight stay, on Sunday 24th November. It was cold outside, but we received a warm welcome. The room was large, clean & the bed was very comfortable. Plenty of tea, coffee, sugar & milk cartons in the room - always a good sign (hate it when there's just a couple of milk pots). The breakfast was delicious,... More
