Breakfasts are freshly cooked with endless tea or coffee and... More

Lovely little hotel, tastefully decorated and cosy. Staff couldn't do enough for us, and the cooked breakfast was excellent. There are a lot of stairs, but the staff helpfully offered to help us with our bags. Would highly recommend for couples looking to stay in Scarborough.

Clean modern with a fantastic friendly atmosphere. Rooms clean and well appointed. Little chocolates on the pillow which was a nice touch. Plenty of tea and coffee available in the room. The honesty bar was well furnished with good quality beer and wine at very reasonable prices. Breakfast first class with good quality ingredients. Loved every moment just a shame... More

Great location if you like a room with a sea view. We needed to be close to the open air theatre: a 20 min walk; hilly. Hotel room 7 very small; ok for a 2 night stay. Breakfast excellent with a great choice of food; delicious! A warm welcome and great service from Kerry. Parking permit for the duration of... More
