What can I say, my instinct was right, all the staff, Jamie, Michelle, Naomi & Gemma, were an absolute delight, so friendly & welcoming, it felt more like a home than a hotel.... More

Stayed at the Almar last night, nice homely feel and very clean. Great location with it being only a 10 minute walk to town centre and south beach. Breakfast has a good variety and very nice too! Would definitely recommend to others and would return again. Jamie has great communication skills and is a fantastic host :) Adam and Kayleigh

Everyone’s idea of the perfect break is different….Whatever you are looking for though, you'll find it all here at The Almar. Our aim is to provide the perfect base where you can experience all that Scarborough has to offer, as well as all of the other numerous attractions of the North Yorkshire coast. We are located in the popular Columbus Ravine area which is very convenient for the North Bay attractions as Peasholm Park, the North Bay beaches and the Scarborough Open Air Theatre are all only a 5 minute stroll away. The entire guest house is tastefully decorated with well appointed en suite rooms. Whether you are with us for a short stay or a longer break, we are sure that you will enjoy an extremely comfortable time with us. 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!
