I stayed one night at Crown House and it was a thoroughly lovely experience. Barbara was a wonderful host. I stayed in the top of the house which felt like my own flat. The standard of the rooms are exceptional - clean, neat and tasteful with everything you could possibly wish for. The breakfast was fantastic. I would recommend anyone... More

I have stayed in many lovely places but this is simply the best. Excels on all fronts from the luxurious rooms to the wonderful welcome and the Devine breakfasts. Combine that with a trip to the best theatrical space in the land to see plays written and directed by a master craftsman performed by outstanding actors and you have a... More

Booked a weekend break to celebrate our Anniversary, had been reccommended, but still didn't expect the service we received. To describe Crown House as a B&B does not do it justice.Everything about it is superb ,from the decor, to the soft furnishings, and to the hospitality of our host Barbara. She cannot do enough for you, from her homemade cakes,... More

We rented the apartment while attending a conference in Scarborough and needed somewhere to escape to with maximum flexibility. This could not have suited us more perfectly. The standard was exceptional and attention to detail in all aspects of the furnishings, décor and facilities was breathtaking. More than expected touches like the bottle of wine and home-made bread was the... More

Our stay at Crown House @ No.20 was a delight from start to finish. A warm welcome, wonderfully stylish and comfortable room, lovely linen and towels, good shower, excellent breakfast, plenty of books and DVDs, all the local information... This is a real gem, we can't wait to return.

We stayed here for 4 nights in late July. Nothing was too much trouble for our host Barbara. She was happy for us to have an early check in, provided cake to welcome us, provided fresh milk every day, with an excellent breakfast offering kippers and haddock as well as the usual fare which was of a high standard. Barbara... More

Sometimes you pay for the anonymity of a 'proper' hotel but Crown House appeared on screen and I was drawn to phone the owner following which we have had a 3 night stay of sheer opulence without ever feeling intimidated. The quality and style of everything that Barbara has created and presents to her guests is a model of perfection.... More

My wife and I had the privilege to stay here whilst attending a Congress in the Scarborough Spa, and what a privilege ! Barbara is a true professional, dedicated to her guest's wishes and with an endearing personality. The house is truly immaculate and bright, with characterful generous proportions, as are the well-furnished rooms. The Pink room had a large... More

We were having a couple of days break in the scarborough/whitby area and, having been disappointed with the standard of accommodation in the town on previous visits, decided to treat ourselves to a night at the crown house based on the beautiful images on their website. The house itself was as beautiful and more than we hoped and there was... More
