Stayed here for our wedding anniversary in October 2013 as I wanted something special to surprise my wife and boy did it work. We stayed in the windmill itself and it certainly ticked all the boxes, loved it and wife was VERY happy Roland was an amazing host and very friendly and I look forward to staying again

Stayed for two nights and would definitely stay again. Our room was lovely, the food and service second to none. The Windmill is a little gem and nothing is too much trouble for Roland and his family. Highly recommended 10/10

We spent three nights here earlier this week. It was an interesting place to stay but be sure you know what you will find. Firstly, do not assume that you will be staying in the windmill itself. The majority of accommodation is in rooms attached to the mill. These rooms are very nicely decorated with pictures, knic-knacks, a sofa and... More

This Bed and Breakfast was clean and the English breakfast was very good, the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous. Parking was very tight. We could have had an equally pleasant stay elsewhere at a much ,more competitive price.

I arranged a group of 12 adults to stay at The Windmill to celebrate friends' forthcoming marriage as they did not fancy the usual hen/stag nights. The location comes as quite a surprise - virtually hidden in the streets of Scarborough and close to local amenities/beach. Once inside the complex it feels very personal and private. The accommodation is sympathetically... More

We stayed one night in the balcony suite( at the top of the windmill tower). All I can say is wow!! It has been sympathetically converted to B&B accommodation, still retaining original features. The circular pattern of the millstone can still be seen in the main beam. Lovely circular rooms and spiral staircases. Tastefully decorated and quality furnishings too. I... More

We stayed one night in windmill itself (lower of the 2 'flats'). The bedroom has a nice ensuite and the living room has good kitchen facilities. Rooms were warm and clean and - of course - circular. Breakfast cooked by Jenny was very good. Neighbourhood has traditional and bijou shops. Would love to stay there again.
