We stayed in Room 1 at the top. It had a beautiful view of the harbour and was still as we remembered it from a previous stay under the old management. Its a very nice room, tastefully decorated, with an en suite shower/wc. The staff were very nice and helpful. The only problem with the room is there are a... More

We chose the Ivy House because of its location. It's a perfect base. We brought my elderly Father and although we had concerns over the two sets of stairs, he managed fine. The sea views are stunning. The rooms are beautifully light and airy and on arrival we were greeted by lovely friendly staff. We understand that the Ivy House... More

Poor service lack of knowledge of the menu. Wouldn't go there again. Ask three different waiting staff about the menu, you'd of thought I'd of insulted them. Food quality okay. Good location, good outside seating area. But that's about it. In a town of customer service disappointed visit is all I can say.

Did not enjoy my meal here, fish and chips. Frozen chips and I suspect the fish was frozen too, very thin, welded into the batter. Won't be visiting this restaurant again. How hard can it be in Scarborough to produce quality fish and chips.

Normally, seafront establishments are what one could call grotty, either unclean and poor food. However, after visiting the Ivy House with my family yesterday I was extremely impressed. The standard of hygiene, cleanliness, staff friendliness and quality of food is outstanding. It stands out like a beacon to the rest and I highly recommend that you pay it a visit... More

Served promptly and offered window seat. A welcoming atmosphere and very friendly staff. Excellent option of food and drinks. It too badly prices for a seaside cafe/b&b. Well worth the visit of you find yourself in this part of the world. Well done.

We stay in Scarborough over night regularly and try different guest houses and started trying hotels, this time we thought we'd book something a little special so went for the luxury suite. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely girl that showed us to our room,... More
