I booked The Almar only the day before my arrival (I stayed just one night for a concert in Peasholm Park). On the evening before I received a courtesy call from the owner. Upon arrival, I was greeted again by the owner before being shown to my room. The single room, no 8, has just been redecorated and all the... More

Stayed there for two nights Friday and Saturday in May 2015, and you couldn't get a better B and B with a host who is so welcoming. Nothing any trouble and we look forward to returning at an early opportunity. Many thanks Jamie for your welcome and hospitality and hope to see you again soon. Great place to stop and... More

I spent 1 night at Almar with a friend and it was excellent. As soon as we arrived, Jamie made us very welcome and showed us where to go on the map. Our en suite was very small, but was spotlessly clean - perfectly acceptable. Breakfast was also excellent & I will definitely book there again if I return to... More

This is such a lovely place to stay when visiting Scarborough. Was given a warm welcome on arrival and the room I had was a cosy single all that I needed for my trip. Only issue I had was my private toilet was on the landing and not part of my room but was fully aware of this but. Breakfast... More

Picked this b&b from many recommended on TripAdvisor and was glad I did. From the minute we arrived to the moment we left Jamie was always friendly and helpful. We had room 6 which was very clean, tastefully decorated and well stocked with tea/coffee etc. Also the towels provided were lovely and thick and soft. Luckily for us they provide... More

I have forgotten how many times we have stayed at The Almar in the last few years.. we love it. We now feel that Jamie & Michelle are "proper" friends rather than just the proprieters. Clean, friendly, wonderful breakfasts & brilliant hosts.. what more can you ask for? I have read a couple of reviews where the reviewers were a... More

Deciding to spend a night in Scarborough on our way 'up north' we took the advice of Tripadvisor and chose 'The Almar' and what a good choice we made, Situated to the north and best part of Scarborough (in our opinion) close by the excellent Peasholm Park is this spotless, nicely decorated, and well run Guest House. The owner, Jamie,... More
