If you want to be just a few minutes walk to the beach but staying in a quiet spot, have a lovely clean room with all the amenities and be served great food, then you won't find a better place in Scarborough than The Raincliffe Hotel hosted by Mal & Kath.

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.

We would highly recommend this hotel. Our hosts, Mal and Katharine were really friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts are excellent and plentiful. The room was lovely and everywhere was spotless. We would definitely stay here again.

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.

Lovely breakfast and the owners cannot do enough for you, nothing is too much trouble they make you very welcome. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Scarborough. You can park right out side... More
