The Bar prices were very reasonable and again felt very welcoming to relax and unwind. The girls were all very friendly and full... More

Thank you for your review Sharon. All feedback is welcome. I am disappointed with the score of this review as I feel we offer great value for money at £59 per night for a B+B in Scarborough in August. Comments about the way I speak (apparently in your opinion too quickly) are completely irrelevant. I did not realise that Trip... More

Excellent service, an extremely pleasant stay, Jamie was extremely helpful and pleasant throughout our stay. The breakfasts are amazing with no cutting corners just to save a few pence. Very clean rooms. We will definitely be visiting again. I would highly recommend.
