My wife and I took my 89 year old father here for a stay of four days to give him a break from home. We had been in touch with Tony who had told us that parking the car would be sorted out for us but unfortunately this did not materialize and we had to stay out on the road... More

We have just returned from another weeks holiday at The Hillcrest and have already booked again for next year. We find The Hillcrest to be the perfect location to stay in Scarborough, its position on the quieter north side of the town is ideal. The hotel is situated just away from the hustle and bustle and yet only a minutes... More

Having recently had a pleasant 2 night weekend break at the Hillcrest, I must comment that the earlier reviews stating 'Discusting Avoid & Awful' these people need to take a serious reality check, for the price paid, you are getting a nice warm welcome upon arrival, a comfortable room, a freshly cooked breakfast as well as on street parking close...

Having stopped here a number of times before we were not surprised to find that Tony and Lynn had maintained the high standards that we found before. The accommodation is comfortable and clean and it is altogether a very friendly place to be. Breakfasts are well cooked and both Tony and Lynn go out of their way to help you... More

Our stay at the Hillcrest was perfect from the minute we arrived as we were made extremely welcome from the minute we arrived. The breakfast was excellent and anything you wanted was not a problem to the very friendly owners Tony & Lynn. The hotel is in quiet location, and the accommodation is extremely clean and comfortable. Thank you John... More

Having stayed in a number of Hotels/B & B's in Scarborough this is without doubt my favourite! A very friendly, well run, clean and tidy hotel in an excellent quiet position. Handily placed for Peasholm Park and all the delights the North Bay has to offer, small car park, but ample on street parking nearby. Tony & Lynn are excellent... More

I have spent many years travelling the length and breadth of England and stayed in more hotels than I care to remember but without a shadow of a doubt the Hillcrest Hotel in Scarborough is simply the best. The owners Tony and Lynn can't do enough for the guests and their kindness has no bounds. The rooms are superbly furnished... More

1st review here. Well where shall we start? The place is stuck in the 1980's with dreadful decor, wallpaper dropping off and it had the smell of an old peoples home. Owners were not very talkative, and preferred to just sit in their own quarters. We have reviewed many places but I've never seen so much dust on the tops... More

Lynn E, Owner at The Hillcrest, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations. The cleaning issues you mentioned have been addressed. This was a telephone booking for two single rooms. However, despite there being no mention at the time of booking, this couple arrived with a baby. Unfortunately, we do not take children under the age of five,... More
