Had a super wknd at The Raincliffe Hotel, Mal & Katherine were very welcoming and friendly, made our stay very enjoyable. We will be returning and recommending it to friends and family. The location is perfect for both town and the sea front as only a 10min walk to both.

A large Victorian home converted into a hotel. The Raincliffe is within a 1/2 mile of the main restaurants in Old Scarborough. The building is in excellent condition with many historical features. The owners are warm and welcoming with a great sense of humour and much warm.
