My partner booked this hotel at very last minute and the only one room left from all Scarborough hotel. The hotel was easy to find and Jamie make us feel very welcome and the bedroom itself was very nice and clean. I think they should apply programme called "Three in a Bed"!! The breakfast was just right, just how we... More

As before, welcoming, spotlessly clean, organised and very friendly. Jamie's breakfast is classy with much thought into sourcing the ingredients. Thanks mate, her indoors remains impressed ( a miracle?).

Just had a lovely weekend in scarborough for the Status Quo concert that was made all the more enjoyable by staying at The Almar Hotel in the company of wonderful hosts Jamie and Michelle. We were treated more as friends than customers. Spotlessly clean and tidy with a wonderful breakfast. Have already recommended to family and friends and do so... More

We had a long Journey from Somerset and it was a real pleasure to be dealt with by someone as helpful as Jamie. The b+b was clean and tidy and our room was comfortable. Jamie and staff were cheerful and looked after my sister and myself very well. The breakfast was great and set you up for the day. Lots... More

My wife and I have just had a short break at The Almar, it is a nice clean quest house owned and run by lovely people. There are nice little extras like tissues a hair dryer, iron and an ironing board. If you want to go further afield it is well placed for Whitby, The Dalby Forrest and the beautiful... More

As a regular visitor to Scarborough over the last 20 years to walk the coastal paths that make up the Cleveland Way I dropped on the Almar about 5 years ago & now would never stay anywhere else. The place is simply superb - its spick and span from top to bottom and the breakfast is simply the best ever.... More

have stayed at the almar for 2 years now on a weekly basis 3 to 4 nights. Dread when Jamie and michelle fully booked in summer months with their regulars who return year after year. Ive stayed in some very grand popular hotels in scarborough and none of them a match on the almar. Jamie and michelle are a very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Everyone’s idea of the perfect break is different….Whatever you are looking for though, you'll find it all here at The Almar. Our aim is to provide the perfect base where you can experience all that Scarborough has to offer, as well as all of the other numerous attractions of the North Yorkshire coast. We are located in the popular Columbus Ravine area which is very convenient for the North Bay attractions as Peasholm Park, the North Bay beaches and the Scarborough Open Air Theatre are all only a 5 minute stroll away. The entire guest house is tastefully decorated with well appointed en suite rooms. Whether you are with us for a short stay or a longer break, we are sure that you will enjoy an extremely comfortable time with us. With a warm and friendly family atmosphere, we welcome single travellers, couples, families and groups of friends alike and always ensure that everyone considers The Almar to be a real home from home! As the new owner of The Almar my aim is to continually improve the quality and facilities of the 3* guest house. With this in mind The Almar Beauty will be introduced during the summer for the convenience of all our future guests. ... more   less
