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.

Little I knew when I first ended up at the Raincliffe Hotel, one year ago, when going to an Anglolang course for teachers. As the course was a deal with the Anglolang school, I didn't know where I was going to stay other than that I had asked for a stay at a hotel. Luckily enough I ended up at... More

We have just returned from a four night stay at this gem of a hotel. It is in a prime position in Scarborough, in easy walking distance from all the attractions. The hotel is very clean and a lovely building, with lots of character. Mal and Katherine, the owners, are very friendly people, very helpful from arrival to departure, with... More

We stayed at the Raincliffe for three nights on a recent short break, to take in Scarborough, Whitby, Filey, and Bridlington. The hotel was well positioned, clean, and the room had all the facilities you could wish for. As for the hosts they were both great, and helped make our stay a really pleasant one.

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
