The owner, Jamie,... More

£64 for 2 nights in a single ensuite room, well-stocked hospitality tray, ample toiletries provided, very comfortable bed, freeview wall-mounted flat screen tv. Came here to celebrate being able to drive again after hip replacement surgery. Very quiet, very clean and a definitely maybe for next time I visit Scarborough.
