My partner and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It's not typical B&B near the sea. It's very nicely decorated throughout the house (the lounge, breakfast room, corridors) cosy place. We booked the bedroom with a sea view. The bedroom itself was a little bit small size. However we came just for one night so we didn't have a... More

We stayed here on a family trip to Scarborough. My boyfriend and I had room 8 which has a bay window with fantastic sea view. We were staying for a long weekend and loved it. The location is convenient and looks out over the North Bay which I liked the best. There are lovely gardens below the hotel room with... More

We had a quick guided tour and we were left to get on with our seaside break. The apartment had a spacious living room/ kitchen... More

Never stayed North in Scarborough before but would definitely recommend this! Honesty bar, tasty breakfast, lovely reception rooms. Never saw dressing gowns as wasn't looking. Quality products in room. Only downside it was wet outside and stairs became a struggle. Kept card as plan to go back.

Good points and bad here. The hotel is very well located. It is clean and the beds comfy. Breakfast was good. It is beautifully decorated as you enter and the lounge was comfortable. Staff friendly. Bad points. We booked at the last minute so didn't have a choice of room. The pictures on the website are cleverly taken adding size... More

My partner and I stayed here and had an enjoyable enough stay. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast each morning was great. The only issue we had though was that we felt a little bit misled by the room photos on the website. We booked in to the double ensuite with sea view and the photos looked great... More

Our room was cosy and had everything we needed, breakfast was plentiful and delicious, this is a great position because you're inbetween south and north bays... More

Stayed for 3 nights and would recommend this hotel. The breakfast was very good, great choice of fresh fruit, cereal, cooked breakfasts, the omelettes were excellent. Very comfy bed and TV in room. Overlooking the sea front and a bit of a walk out of town, but very easily done. Would return here again.
