The Cosgrove B&B is situated in an undesirable location in Scunthorpe....which is the Downtown area. The owner, Barry, I found to be a very warm and friendly man...which makes it harder to write a less than stellar review....but that I must. As a woman traveling alone, I would definitely NOT recommend this accommodation. I had booked in for 7 nights... More

I stayed in the guest house for almost a full month, and during all the time the owners and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The en-suite room was really nice, very comfortable, quiet and always clean. Of course we can't forget the delicious breakfast, where you have a list to choose what you prefer to eat! I really...

stayed at the Cosgrove Guest House for 4 nights while working in Scunthorpe. Barry the owner was friendly and welcoming. I stayed in a single standard room, it was very clean and warm and only £25 a night and the breakfast was lovely.

We couldn't stay in our usual Hotel and needed an alternative venue for a weekend stay. We were born in the town but no longer live there, we had seen the Cosgrove before, found availability and gave it a go. We had a twin room facing the front of the building on the first floor. It was spacious, well organised... More

The staff were friendly, ready to help and very nice. The food was also fresh and very tasty. The room was quiet, warm, cosy and very clean. I have no complaint whatsoever. Will definitely use next time. Quite pleased with the service provided.

I would say this was more of a B than a B&B. I say that as the night that we stayed here, there wasn’t anyone available to do the breakfast so we had £3 per person knocked of the bill. It's just a pity that no one bothered to contact us to let us know that no breakfast was available... More

I've just had a 2-night stay here. The staff are friendly, and the prices are reasonable (£32/night for a single room) but I was left feeling slightly disappointed, in spite of the favourable reviews on this website. The room was ok but the mattress in my bed was quite "wallowy". The free wi-fi was terribly slow - pretty much useless.... More

The Cosgrove is a great guest house - very convenient for the town centre. We've stayed in the double en-suite and the twin rooms and beds are comfortable in both. Lashings of hot water, lovely and warm in the winter, and a nice cooked breakfast. Very clean. Parking is available outside the guest house - we've always managed to find... More
