We took along two friends for a two night stay at The Almar. We were all immensely impressed with all aspects of this excellently run establishment. Jamie and Michelle are quality hosts and provide a 5 Star Service on your behalf. The cleanliness, hospitality, local information and above all, breakfast, cannot be bettered. This was our second visit and it... More

After reading all of the great reviews, we were left disappointed by our stay. The room had the smallest en suite that we have ever seen, not even big enough to accommodate a wash basin, this was situated in the bedroom itself. The biggest problem was the fact that we were kept awake by noise from adjoining rooms, you could... More

I stayed in the 'small single'. And it is small but has its own en suite bathroom. An excellent breakfast and a clean room. What more can you want for £20? All the staff are friendly and the whole place is spotless. Great location too. If there is a better Scarborough B&B then I'd be amazed.

I have had the pleasure to stay regularly at the Almar - and it has been a pleasure - and in doing so, I have had the opportunity to stay in different rooms on different occasions. Each room has been finished and furnished to a very high standard, is spotless and fresh, and the attention to detail is above and... More

Stayed at the ALMAR recently whilst on a golf trip. I was given a courtesy call the evening before I was due to arrive to make sure all was still in order. On arrival Jamie's welcome is as warm and friendly as it gets. You immediately feel a rapport which all helps you settle in quickly. Unbeknown to me I... More

Even if I wanted to I couldn't find fault with The Almar. Jamie, Michelle and his staff made us feel very welcome from the second we arrived and couldn't do enough for us. Our room, like the rest of the hotel, was spotless. The breakfast was second to none and the staff were very friendly and professional. The evening chats... More

Lost count of the number of times we have stayed at The Almar and once again had a brilliant couple of nights break. Unfortunately Michelle was ill and so wasn't there but Jamie was his usual uber friendly and efficient self. Can't recommend this place enough. We will be back shortly :-)

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
