Me and my husband stayed at The Almar for one night and wished we'd booked for longer. The decor in the room was modern and beautifully furnished, and spotlessly clean. Jamie and Michelle were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The B and B is a good 25-30 minutes from the south beach, but located in a lovely... More

Had a fantastic stay at The Almar. Jamie, Michelle and Naomi were all very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The whole guest house is spotless with lovely decor. The breakfast is the best we've ever had! We will definitely return when we visit Scarborough again.

This was our third stay at the Almar and you could not ask for better hosts in Jamie and Michelle. The accommodation is spotless, the breakfast hot, plentiful and served with a smile and the location perfect for not only Scarborough but for the local area. The bathroom in the cupboard in room 2 is also very quirky Will definitely... More

Jamie and Michelle run an excellent B and B. They make a real effort to see that their guests feel welcome. They have useful advice on the local area. The place is clean and smart, the decor pleasant and fresh. The area is good, close to Peasholm Park. Breakfast is excellent, a wide selection and well made. We liked this... More

We were made to feel at home throughout our stay and Jamie and Michelle really go that extra mile with nothing being too much trouble,... More

Jamie and Michelle are very welcoming even when my husband and I turned up out of the blue! We had a lovely time just before Christmas 2013. Food is excellent as always and the rooms spotless. I would highly recommend this B&B. Thank you Jamie and Michelle for another perfect stay, and we hope to be staying again shortly.
