Spent 2 nights here towards the end of August 2013. We arrived in the early evening and was greeted by an older woman. We were shown through to reception area in the front room and were made to sign a disclaimer. I held my tongue, which could have so easily have lashed out at that point. We were given our... More

We stayed Saturday and Sunday nights at this small, archetypal seaside B and B. Room was large, with bunk beds for children had we brought any with us! Sea view from other side of hotel was stunning and it really couldn't be much closer to the sea. Scarborough is a beautiful town which has clearly had money spent on it.... More

They have a policy no takeaways in room which... More

I need to respond your comments to give the facts. Yes I did spray air freshener but not whilst you were eating. By your own admission the curry you brought in was disgusting and you took it back to the take away to get a refund. As for the fish and chips, it was lunchtime and not at all pleasant... More

Room was clean and had spacious, the tea and coffee making facilities was a welcome bonus, easy walking distance to town, Peasholm Park and both North and South Bay. We paid for breakfast on the second day it was delicious and well worth... More

My partner, myself and our 2 young children (aged 3 months and, 2 years) stayed here for 2 nights. First off the hotel was easy to find, about a 20 min walk from the railway station, and the town centre. We were greeted at the door by a lovely smiling lady, who looked genuinely happy to see us, and was... More
