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

We agree that at the moment the paintwork is looking a little past its best - unfortunately we here on the Yorkshire Coast haven't avoided any of the terrible weather that's hit the country... 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

We’re sorry that you didn’t enjoy your recent stay at The Ainsley, but we would like to take this opportunity to respond to your criticisms. The top floor bedrooms that you booked are described as small, ensuite double rooms; they are not by any stretch of the imagination ‘box rooms’ with tiny windows. The guest house is regularly inspected by... More

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

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
