This is our 3rd visit to this hotel and we are looking to book our 4th!
We feel very lucky to have found it, and would not stay anywhere else when we visit Scarborough.
John and Gillian are lovely hosts and make you feel so welcome and like you are returning to old friends.
The hotel is clean and beautifully decorated. The beds are comfy and we always sleep well, and the breakfasts are fab!!
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, give it a try!

The welcome one was very friendly the whole place is immaculate and nothing is too much trouble. We booked last minute for Easter for 2 nights. When we arrived we were greeted by the owners, who immediately sorted out the disc parking for the car and made us a lovely cup of coffee.
We have never seen a cleaner house and our room was perfect.
Breakfast was cooked to perfection and has an amazing choice. The incidental cups of tea, fairy cakes and little chocolate easter eggs in the lounge were the icing on the cake.

Room Tip: We had number 2

Absolutely amazing trip! Scenery, facilities and people were wonderful! We stayed in the family room which was very cosy and catered for us very well. The hosts are friendly people who made us feel right at home. Couldn't have been more perfect.

After a weekend stay, I can't wait to return later in the summer! It's literally home from home, the spacious bedrooms make you feel like you're in a 5* hotel. The cleanliness of the whole place was phenomenal and can't be faulted! The breakfast was brilliant with the endless options; fruit, cereal, yoghurts, a full English or anything you'd like cooking! The hosts John and Gillian made you feel at home and so relaxed it was a well needed break and I couldn't have found a better guest house.
