As a first holiday in Scarborough, we were very fortunate to come across the Almar Hotel, we looked at other places but the Almar took my fancy.

Everyone’s idea of the perfect break is different….Whatever you are looking for though, you'll find it all here at The Almar.

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!
