Well what can I say about this Guest House.We have been twice this year,once with Grandchildren and again with friends. I have frankly never stayed in a friendlier place anywhere and we do get about a bit. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is lovely. Hosts cannot do enough for you and nothing is too much trouble. We would not consider staying anywhere else in Scarborough. Dont miss out.

Aug 15 - Aug 22 - It was great to be back & staying with Ian & Sue in their well presented, very clean, comfortable home! This time we were joined by Bethan, our 5yr old grandaughter who was very excited to be having her 1st holiday without mummy & daddy! We stayed in the family suite which was perfect for us all. Bethan loved having her own room accessed off our bedroom & the corner bath with shower attachment in the en-suite proved to be easier than having just a shower cubicle when getting her ready for bed & also welcomed by us at the end of day too! We had most of our evening meals at the Monico as we already knew from past experience, that they would be cooked to perfection, include qualityfresh food, superbly presented & excellent value, just like the breakfasts which Ian & Sue pride themselves on & in Bethan's words are 'yummy. yummy'!. Being within walking distance to the relaxing north bay, the location is perfect & has plenty to offer a little one to include Peasholme Park, crazy golf, minature railway to Scawby Mills & Sealife Centre & ideal for catching the open top bus into town or the busier south bay. Bethan has told us she loved staying at the Monico & wants to know when we can go back! Thank you Ian & Sue for everything - you always make us so welcome & like so many people say, on your 1st visit you arrive as guests, but then leave as friends & this is why we will ALL be back next year!

stayed here for one night 18 August - decided this B&B after reading reviews on tripadvisor. The location was perfect for walking down to the North Bay and Peasholme Park and the Northbay Railway. The hosts Sue and Ian very friendly and more than helpful with their knowledge of the area. Ian was apologetic for having just had an operation and was perhaps not on top form but we thought he did top job. Breakfast was superb - i didnt have the full english, just egg on toast which was more than enough for me after the cereal. Would i stay again - yes without doubt.

We have just arrived back from a 2 night stay at the Monico Guest House, we had been recommended this place by a neighbour. We were so glad that we listened to the feedback as it is one of the most clean, accommodating and friendliest places we have ever stayed.Sue and Ian are a smashing couple and so down to earth, the food is exceptionally good and all home cooked by Ian, I could do with loaning Ian for christmas day lunch. We will certainly be returning and will be recommending to others.
Thanks Sue and Ian for a most enjoyable stay.

It was our first stay at the Monico and it WILL NOT be the last. From when we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome, Sue and Ian are just lovely and couldn't have been more accommodating. The term 'Full English Breakfast' certainly lives up to its name here and sets you up for the day...and there was no grease!!! If you want a nice, clean and friendly place to stay in Scarboro', then look no further......
