Absolutely loved the night we spent at The Almar and can't wait to come back here for a longer stay! Welcoming owners, great food and lovely room with the little things that count like chocolates on the pillow. Just so nice

We have stayed on this street before, it's a good location, easy walking distance into town and plenty on street parking. Jamie was very welcoming, there is some off street parking available which we took advantage... More

Had a great week here at the beginning of June. Jamie and Michelle were so welcoming and made our stay even more enjoyable. The rooms were clean and tidy and the breakfast was spot on every morning. Will definitely be back again next year. John Jenny Chris and Amy X

Just back from The Almar and I really enjoyed my stay. Lovely clean and tidy room and fab breakfast. Not stayed near the North Bay before but the location was good with Peasholme park and the North Yorks Railway five minutes away. I would recommend.

Just got back from another short stay at our favourite b&b in Scarborough, The Almar. As usual we were very warmly greeted by Jamie and Michelle and shown our newly decorated room. Very nice. Drinks in the bar before going out for our meal then back to a very cosy bed for the night. Breakfast was outstanding, as usual, and... More

Accommodated us at just a few hours notice. Right from the initial phone call to the end of our stay the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The room was spotlessnot, comfortable and well equipped. Superb breakfast and excellent value for money. We will be back!

Spent a long weekend at The Almar in Scarborough. Clean welcoming rooms, fantastic host and staff. Anything you needed to know about things to do Jamie would either already know or find out for you. Would definitely recommend and will be going back again.

With a warm and friendly family atmosphere, we welcome single travellers, couples, families and groups of friends alike and always ensure that everyone considers The Almar to be a real home from home!
