Originally booked for one night only but found Castle By The Sea and John so delightful that we stayed an extra night. We were lucky he had a room free! Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, food lovely, views stunning and John is so helpful and accommodating. Family of 4 and our dog will definitely try to stay here next time... More

We happened across this tea room and guest house on a day out in Scarborough. The views from the conservatory tea room over the north bay are beautiful. The owner was welcoming and the homemade scones were excellent. We were provided with hot water for our baby food and looked after very well. I would definitely return.

The views from the Castle by the Sea tea rooms are simply amazing. Hidden away between Scarborough`s two bays, it is well worth taking the time to find. Delicious sandwiches and cakes are all home made on the premises. The bakewell tart has to be the best I have ever tasted. Don`t miss it when you are in Scarborough. Apparently... More

We stayed in room one which was very modern and had a new bath/shower room. The doors opened straight out onto the terrace... More

We had an overnight stay, on Sunday 24th November. It was cold outside, but we received a warm welcome. The room was large, clean & the bed was very comfortable. Plenty of tea, coffee, sugar & milk cartons in the room - always a good sign (hate it when there's just a couple of milk pots). The breakfast was delicious,... More
