We stayed for two nights in one of the double rooms. We were given a lovely friendly welcome, despite arriving quite late due to train issues. The location was great, just a ten minute walk to the seafront or to the town centre. Our room was spotless (although the decor wasn't quite to our tastes) and had everything we needed.... More

We've stayed every year for at least 10 years when we come to Scarborough for an annual bridge competition. It's a hotel I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants comfort, friendliness, excellent food, cleanliness and quality. Every time we book for the following year before leaving which is the best recommendation anyone can give.

Stayed here quite a few times now and never been disappointed. Katherine is always friendly and keen to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast is to die for! We also chose to eat in one evening and the meal was great - good hearty Yorkshire portions!

We stayed here for one night and from ringing up to book, Katherine could not have been more friendly or professional. She was the perfect host. Our room was clean and well-appointed with crisp linen and soft white towels. The shower room was extremely clean with a selection of toiletries and a very efficient shower. Breakfast was cooked to order... More

thankyou Catherine for your hospitality. Lovely spacious rooms spotlessly clean. Breakfast second to none.Located in a lovely position close but not too close to hustle and bustle of town, within 10 mins walk.

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.
