We stayed in the Raincliffe Hotel for 4 nights and could not recommend it enough. The owners, Mal & Katherine, are simply wonderful with a smile, and friendly quip at every engagements. The breakfast is phenomenally good....honestly it could literally keep you going for the day. If you do manage to eat the entire breakfast (which is a real challenge),... More

Breakfast room was warm and welcoming and the food was plentiful. Mal & Katherine were both attentive hosts and nothing was too much trouble. For a... More

Had a fabulous stay as first time Scarborough visitors. The Hotel was comfortable and clean, the dining room especially welcoming, the tables set to a high standard. Mal and Kath such lovely owners and as for the b/fast they served...it was excellent. 10 minute walk from the prom and town centre, this is definately the place to stay in Scarborough.

The food was excellent (both breakfasts and evening meals) - with huge portions (so there was no need to eat during the day). There were also great meal-time conversations, and the room was nice and clean. In fact, I would say it was the best guest house I've ever stayed in!

Just a last minute booking. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Very easy access to town centre (even by foot) Right side of town. North Bay has really gone down the nick. Enjoyed the breakfast. Would stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Are you fed up with searching for the right combination of quality and value when staying in beautiful Scarborough? Look no further than the Raincliffe. We are a top graded licensed small hotel/guesthouse, ten minutes level walk to Spa, south beach, theatres with the town and museums also close by. We offer excellent refurbished accommodation (not just a lick of paint), consistently high standards with comfortable beds, spotless en-suites, high quality food and most importantly a warm, genuine welcome. Consistently positively reviewed on many accommodation websites for the last 5 years, contributor to the 'Scarborough' TA forum and winners of Channel 4's '3 in a bed'. We welcome well behaved children over 8 years and regret that we do not accept pets. ... more   less
