We were advised to try this small hotel when desperately looking for late accommodation to see the cricket. Note to cricket lovers - book early! Richard the proprietor explained he was fully booked except he had a very small double available - he was hiding nothing it was small but could be had at a reduced tariff. Knowing we had... More

We have stayed at the Earlsmere several times and have never been disappointed. The place is spotlessly clean, the rooms are tastefully decorated, the attention to detail is second to none. The mattresses are so comfortable and the breakfasts are tasty and beautifully cooked. Along with all this Richard and Jarlath are the most welcoming hosts. I can't recommend this... More

This is one of the best places we have stayed in Scarborough. We were made very welcome by Richard on our arrival, and our room was absolutely delightful. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The place is spotlessly clean and the food was very good, served in a lovely dining room. We had no... More

Jar leith and Richard couldn't be more welcoming after we arrived soaking wet having spent a day cycling in the rain. They even booked a restaurant for us to eat. The rooms were tasteful and comfortable with everything we needed. Lovely walk to town from the house and breakfast was great. Would definitely stay there again if back in that... More

What can I say... Loved it here! Beautiful b&b, beautiful rooms, service was faultless and it was very clean!! We were a party of 7 and they catered to our needs, asked us when we'd like breakfast and what we'd like! We opted for full English and it was delicious! Can't speak highly enough of this place!

Richard was very welcoming and his breakfasts are excellent. We accidently left a pair of... More
