Situated in a quiet area near Peasholme Park and the North Bay, the hotel provided the perfect base for our short break. The room was clean and comfortable, decorated in a homely, traditional style. The breakfast was well presented and delicious. I would thoroughly... More

Booked for a few nights stay with my son - Toni and Lynn are excellent hosts. really make you welcome when you arrive and a great hot breakfast in the morning. Situated in a nice quiet spot just behind Peasholm Park - not too far to walk into town centre, or the sealife centre at Scalby mills

We stayed one night in a family room. Great location, just out of the city center. The room was clean & had everything we needed. Very comfy beds. Great breakfast and service in the morning. Very friendly and helpful. Would recommend.

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
