Just returned home after a fabulous 5 nights in Scarborough watching Yorkshire play Nottingham CCC at North Marine Road. Yorkshire CCC members just love this annual pilgrimage to the seaside venue and many bring the whole family down for the duration of the game, consequently gates of around 5,000 are commonplace for this delightful venue.

The Lysander!! We had a fantastic time here for our wedding anniversary/Bryan Adams concert. We were looked after from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble for Andy and Julie. We booked a small double which was fine for what we wanted. The room had all the facilities you could need and was very clean! On our anniversary we... More

The location of the Lysander is excellent, just 5 mins walk from sea and plenty of free parking. The accommodation was spotless and the breakfast wonderful with nothing being too much trouble for the friendly staff. We had booked a room for ourselves and our 5 year old granddaughter. The room was quite small with rather too much furniture.It lacked... More

With a good weather forecast for the weekend and beyond, we fancied a few days in Scarborough. We had stayed at a few nice places in the past, but with it being August, the schools on holiday and a good forecast, vacancies were at a premium and none of the places we had stayed at in the past were available....

We stayed here on a visit to the Open Air Theatre. Very clean and modern with excellent breakfast. The owners were most welcoming and informative about places to visit in Scarborough. A short walk to Peasholm Park and North Bay. Off road parking.

Just returned from an overnight stay at The Lysander in Scarborough. We chose The Lysander due to the close proximity to the Scarborough Open Air Theatre as we were attending an event there. We were met with a warm welcome before being shown to our Superior room on the 2nd floor. The room was spotless with a huge bed, drinks... More

This place was a real find. We needed somewhere to stay following a funeral and didn't put much effort into the booking so had no real expectations. But we were very pleasantly surprised. Every member of staff that we spoke to was warm, friendly and helpful. The room was extremely comfortable and clean and even had a view of the... More

Bed and Breakfast - probably the best we have ever stayed in. Perfect location, lovely staff, great breakfast and absolutely spotlessly clean. Ample parking. Five minutes walk from Peasholm Park and the open air theatre, ten minutes walk from the beach.
