We visited The Ivanhoe with a groupon deal. We needed somewhere to stay in Scarborough after a long overdue trip to see my nan who lives just outside Scarborough in Cayton. I travelled with my partner and his little boy who is 7. It was my partners son's his first trip away with us AND his first stay in a hotel/B&B. Arrived after a long journey and were greeted by a young lady who made us feel welcome and showed us to our room. Room was fairly basic and the shower wasn't great but had everything we needed for a two night stay and was a good base. Breakfast was fine, no choice of fruit or cereals though which led to a bacon sandwich each morning (although I wasn't complaining!) My partners little boy was stocked up on scrambled/fried eggs on toast which he was very pleased with! I understand peoples comments on the unfriendly barman, but he did make small talk with us on the second morning at breakfast which was nice. We didn't eat in the bar over our stay so cannot comment on their meals. We did ask if they had a cut off point for letting children in the bar area and they said as long as he was well behaved we could stay in the bar as long as we wanted, nice to have a relaxed drink after a long day and then just wonder back up to our room. Was nice to be a little out of town and we had a car so no probs getting around. Overall, wasn't the best place I've ever stayed in but it served its purpose for us and my partners son thought it was great!!
