Me and my partner stayed at The Almar for only one night we were made to feel extremely welcome, Jamie and Michelle are excellent host and couldnt have made us feel more at home if they tried. As soon as we entered the building we were greeted and it felt as though we had known them for years. Our room was lovely and the whole building was beautifully decorated and clean. We can't wait to stay here again soon!!!

We stayed here one night with our daughter and grandaughter and we were all made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. Jamie and Michelle are so friendly and helpful and their bed and breakfast is kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent, a wonderful choice and everything lovely and fresh. The situation is great, just a short walk from Peasholm park and beach. We had a lovely stay and wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend.

I have just stayed three nights in the Almar and it was brilliant... The owners Jamie and Michelle made us feel very welcome and gave us information on the area. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and the breakfast was gorgeous. We will be staying here again.

I spent a whole week searching trip advisor for our 2 night b&b in Scarborough. A lot of the b&b we viewed had a handful of bad reviews, but not the almar and that was what clinched the deal, as well as the brilliant price! We stayed in room 6 which was situated on the top floor, it was decorated with warm woods and turquoise wallpaper; fresh yet homely. I couldn't get over how fantastic the facilities and food were. Jamie was the icing on the cake; willing to go out of his way for all of the guests staying at the almar. He even let us use the parking facilities after we'd checked out! You couldn't ask for more at this b&b, I know for sure we'll be stopping at the almar again.

Room Tip: People who have difficulty with walking should ask not to be situated on the top floor.

I booked this as a last minute getaway, and I was not disappointed.
The welcome, by the owner addressing me by name was a warming touch.
I was given a parking disk and then booked into the room.
The owner carried my case to the room, which I did like.
The room , a single was small and extremely clean.
This room has a shower and wash basin in the corner, but had a toilet outside .
The toilet was for room 1 sole use.
The rooms decoration was clean , smart and just enough.
Bedding looked and smelt very clean. Pillows and quilt are of a very high standard, very convertable.
In the morning the breakfast was served to a very high standard, plenty of items and well cooked.
I would, and have told everyone I know how good this place is.
I will stay there again.
