The key to enjoying your stay at Tall Storey's is getting parked nearby as Scarborough is very hilly, roads are narrow and there are a lot of cars. That said, a parking ticket was provided by the guesthouse and we were lucky to find a space close by. We were given room no.2 and the sea view was superb. The... More

One night stay and very impressed. Had a fabulous view over the harbour where we arrived to an aircraft display to celebrate Armed Forces Day. Very helpful and friendly hosts, clean and comfortable room and a scrumptious breakfast. Will definitely stay again when visiting Scarborough.

We decided on a little away break to Scarborough last minute and found the wonderful 'Tall Storeys' From the word go, both Ian and Morna ,the lovely owners , made us most welcome to their beautiful home in Scarboroughs old town. The house has wonderful sea views and is just below the impressive castle ruins and near to St Mary's... More

Ian and Morna are exceptional hosts. Their home was beautiful and standards superb. With parking in Scarborough at a premium the availability of a parking badge was a brilliant addition to our stay.The breakfast was the best we've had in years and we would recommend the Tall Storeys to all.Our rating 11 out of 10.

Cannot praise this gem enough, spotless everywhere, quality evident in all things from the toiletries to the tea bags. Will never stay anywhere else in Scarborough again. The breakfast is worthy of a mention on its own, Quality again and choices galore. THANK YOU both Mora and Ian, wonderful hosts.

We have just returned from a much needed 2 night break to Tall Storeys and it definitely won't be our last! We took our Westie, Lyla with us and when they say pets welcome they certainly are. There was a pet mat, bowl and blanket ready for her on arrival and Ian and Morna made such a fuss of her.... More

Based on my experience this modest B & B has higher ratings than deserved. The staff were friendly and made efforts to find something that we wanted to eat for breakfast but the room itself was so tiny that there was scarcely enough space to walk around the bed and the shower malfunctioned so that it was either scaldingly hot...
