Came here 10 years ago and got engaged so holds great memories for us. We always stay in room 8 on the second floor because of amazing sea views. The rooms are spotless and have all the facilities you need including a great shower. The view of the North Bay is panoramic and the castle is a 2 minute walk.... More

My husband and I have stayed here quite a few times and will continue to do so. There is always a warm welcome whenever we arrive, which is usually on speck. The building (as with all the buildings here) is very old but lovely. The views from the bay windows of the front/sea facing rooms are absolutely beautiful. The breakfast... More

I've stayed in many b&bs throughout the north of England and The Ainsley is definitely the best. We were made to feel very welcome and the breakfasts were superb (excellent choice and served in a lovely, cosy dining room). My little boy and I shared an en-suite family room which was spotless and comfortable. I also must mention the tea... More

Just shows how much TripAdvisor can mislead, people saying this is the best b&b in Scarborough! I'd hate to see the worst. Stayed one night ( thankfully) It's a typical British guest house, tiny rooms, dated , overpriced and nowhere to Park. Not awful but nothing special. Won't stay here again

Had a lovely stay The Ainsley guest house. Felt right at home especially with the nice extra touches and the view from my room on the front is outstanding. Was listening to the sea every night. Lovely to have bottled water and drinks in the lounge that were needed with the hot weather. Old fashioned decor but really homely. The... More

Me, my husband and little boy turned up at The Ainsley wanting a room for just one night. That was no problem at all. They made us feel very welcome straightaway. We were given a lovely room which was spotless but very cosy. I was taken aback by the amount of tea, coffee and milk there was in the room... More

I stayed for three nights in early June with my husband and had a lovely stay. The service we received really made our stay, including little touches like a box of chocolates on arrival and fizzy water in the room. Breakfast was tasty and the portion size was just right. My husband wasn't very keen on the tea or coffee... More

My wife and I stayed at The Ainsley for 11 nights in late May. On first arriving outside we were impressed by the views over the North Bay and up to the castle. We were met by Lynne (wonderfully friendly and always ready to help) who showed us to room 8 on the 2nd floor, having fantastic views across the... More

For the past several years a group of us golfers from Sheffield have stopped at the Ainsley in June and we have commented that every year we go there has always been some refurbishment carried out inbetween our previous stay.The landlady keeps the place immaculately clean in all aspects and will go that extra mile to be accomodating.
