Just had the one night in Scarborough on our way further north. Lovely clean modern room and a fantastic friendly welcome from Tony and Lynn. Delicious breakfast to boot!
I would happily stay again or recommend to a friend.

Stayed at the Hillcrest Hotel again while on business in Scarborough. It must be at least twelve times I have stayed here now either as a sole traveller or with a work colleague. The rooms are always clean and well presented. Tony and Lynn were friendly and welcoming as usual. Breakfast was great. A good experience.

Enjoyed our stay here, perfect location close to the park and sea front, plenty of spaces to park, nice clean comfortable room and bathroom, delicious freshly cooked breakfast, great place ran by a lovely friendly helpful couple, they even stored our bikes as we didn't want to leave them in the car over night. Good value and would definitely stay there again.

we had unexpected circumstances while in Scarborough, which ended in a stay at The Hill-crest, wow what a delite, Every thing was so upmarket could not believe the value for the price we paid. Our hosts Mr and Mrs Elliott, were an exception, always a cheery smile no matter what kind of a day they were having, nothing at all was any problem for them.

The meals were 5 star looking at the egg yolks I thought the chickens must be in the back yard,,
and the Hotel its self was excellent could not fault it every thing top class I would rate this Hotel 4 star for sure All the Best for 2012 Cathy n Joe

Just return from another great week at the Hillcrest. Tony and Lynn are always welcoming, nothing is to much trouble. Our room was ready when we arrived (which was before the time expected). The hotel is very clean throughout, food is outstanding and freshly cooked, You wont go far wrong staying at this hotel. Thanks Tony and Lynn you were great hosts as usual, you always make our holidays special.

Lovely b & b. Booked at the last minute when it looked like the weather was going to be decent. Very friendly and helpful. 2 minutes from peasholme. We were on the top floor and booked a twin room but were pleasantly surprised that there was a double and single bed. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. We did find the shower room a bit small though. We would definitely stay again.
