I stayed here for 1 night for business. It was booked last minute and the owner was incredibly helpful with accommodating my anticipated late arrival. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was top notch. The owner also provided breakfast slightly early for me which was a lovely gesture. Overall a cracking B&B with a very attentive owner... More

Spent Saturday and Sunday at this very comfortable accommodation. With a party of 6 adults over three generations we booked a two bedroom cottage and an ensuite room. The accommodation was superb, very clean and comfortable. The facilities in the 2 bedroom cottage provided us with all we needed to cater for our own breakfast. A toaster, cooker, microwave and...

Visited The Windmill with a group of twelve adults to celebrate two of the group's forthcoming wedding. They were not in favour of the traditional hen/stag nights and wanted something different. The Windmill, which is literally in the centre of Scarborough certainly delivered! The 'happy couple' stayed in the actual windmill while the rest of us stayed in little cottages... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Windmill, just a 5 minute walk from the bustling town centre of Scarborough, its busy railway station and close to the iconic Stephen Joseph Theatre which hosts regular plays and concerts throughout the year. The Windmill, is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and is the last remaining windmill in Scarborough offering quality self-catering and bed & breakfast accommodation with limited free parking. We have three king-size four poster rooms overlooking the courtyard and 2 lovely Suites in The Windmill itself; the Balcony Suite, for adventurous adults with a head for heights, and the lower Windmill Madeline Suite which is more spacious. We also have two single storey cottages in the courtyard, one cater for up to 5 people and the other for 4 people. So the choice is yours - you can cater for yourselves or be catered for with a hearty breakfast in The Windmill. ... more   less
