It was our third time staying with Janet and John at Castle By The Sea and it was as good as ever. They both go out of there way to make it a really special time and nothing is too much trouble.

I travelled with my husband and two young children. We all thought this was a great hotel, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for John or Janet and looked after us all very well. The room was nice and clean and the breakfasts were lovely. Only down side if there is one is that it can be all up... More

We were all very pleased with our stay here. Very friendly owners made us feel welcome. We had a family room which was fine for the couple of nights we stayed there. T he breakfasts were lovely. We would certainly use this hotel again.

We stayed here for one night it was very relaxing, Janet & John was the best hosts and the food was excellent. We never had any views from our room, although the room its self was lovely. We had the king size four poster bed suite with our own bathroom and private little patio area to sit in. Well worth... More

High on a cliff overlooking both bays this very friendly hotel is run by a very hard working genial couple who do their best for their guests. The hotel was evidently very run down before they took it over and some work needs to be done throughout the service is good and the linen is spotless. It's also dog friendly.

Marvelous location on the headland seperating Scarborough's North & South Bays, just below the castle. Our room was at the back, overlooking the church, but rooms at the front, including the conservatory (doubled as a breakfast room) and lounge had fantastic views of the North Bay. Tasty cooked breakfast (local produce) and lovely homemade preserves. Homemade cakes available in tea... More

We have had a short 2 day break and really enjoyed this stay. Welcomed in a lovely way by Janet, who brought us tea and soft drinks. A charming pair, who work hard to make your stay a happy one. The food was delicious, and the chocolate cake, which Janet baked, was delicous. Had a late tea early supper and... More
