Clean, friendly and conveniently located we have just returned from this super B & B. The owner Carol was excellent, from the initial phone call to enquire through to the great breakfasts - a fantastic choice of yummy jams, curds and marmalades! Also offering lots of ideas for days out and where to eat. The bedrooms are roomy and comfy... More

We have returned to Alexandra house for another short break and continued to be delighted by the quality of the accommodation and the warm welcome from Dave and Carol who are very attentive to their guests' needs.

Run by a very friendly couple Carol and Dave. There are lots of little touches that make the stay more pleasant than most B&B's. They remember your name and use it which is a surprise at first but is also a nice touch. The breakfast is cooked to order and very good quality produce. I am a devout Hp sauce... More

We spent one night here in order to go to a play at the Stephen Joseph theatre which is within walking distance. A couple of minutes and you are on the esplanade with paths and a lift to the shore. Carol and Dave are wonderful hosts and the delicious breakfast set us up for the day. We'll be back.

For anyone who has difficulties booking a family room with a teenager I would definitely recommend this Guest House. Everything is very clean and the breakfasts are fabulous.

We've been holidaying in Scarborough for the past 5 years and this hotel has been a lucky find and we'll definitely be booking a return stay in this hotel in subsequent years. The owners were great - really friendly - nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for a week in August 2010. We travelled with family, including 2 young... More

Having read the reviews on this guest house we had no hesitation in booking. When we called, we were greeted by this cheerful Yorkshire accent. Carol, the landlady was most pleasant, helpful and accomodating. All booked in no time. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and were met by David, Carols husband. This, i must point out is a well...
