I stayed at the Ainsley for a week and I loved it. They make you feel at home. Lynne couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Comfortable room and great views. I also have to highlight the quality of the English breakfast which is locally sourced. Highly recommended

Just back from another visit to Scarborough and The Ainsley. Once again we had a lovely stay, as always we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. The room was nice and clean as usual, bed was lovely and so comfy, views over the bay are always the highlight despite the scaffold ( due to the outside of the... More

Stay for one night only, wish we could stop for longer. Had a room with sea view, which was absolutely amazing. Pleasantly surprised and good value. Breakfast was served between 8 and 9 so only one hour slot but that didn't bother us at all and food was really tasty. Suberb lactation rights in the middle of South and North... More

Had a lovely couple of days staying at the Ainsley. We arrived early before check in time but the owners were happy to let us leave our luggage while the room was being prepared. We had an excellent sea view across the North Bay it was lovely looking out of our bay window. The room was comfortable and clean and... More

When I first saw it with the peach front (some bits flaking) I wasn't sure. I've stayed in 12 different B&Bs on this strip (North marine rd side) but after staying at Miricia and not enjoying it this time I swapped to next door the Ainsley. It's absolutely perfect. The view from the sea view rooms are EXCEPTIONAL. There is... More

Once again we had a lovely stay at the Ainsley. Lynne as usual was warm and friendly, and made us feel very welcome right through our stay. Lynne is a very attentive lady, never rushes you and is always ready to answer any questions, whether it is about your stay at the b&b or about Scarborough itself. The breakfast has... More

We stayed in a front double en-suit with sea views only £56. The room was very clean, plenty of tea/coffee biscuits. The bed comfortable and shower worked well. Lots of thoughtful extras. The breakfast was more than ample with plenty to choose from in cereals, yogurt and full English. A friendly and warm welcome, will certainly go back again.

My husband and I have just re-visited The Ainsley. Glad to say that again we really enjoyed the hospitality, food and of course that sea view. The room as usual was lovely, clean and well stocked with beverages and biscuits. Will definately be going back again
