Robyn's Guest House
Ranked #27 of 183 Scarborough B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2013

It's been years since I went to Scarborough, having spent many happy holidays there as a child. Now I've moved up to West Yorkshire, we decided to go over there for a couple of days and as we'd no idea where to stay, we plumped for this one, as it was one of the cheapest and had one of the best sets of reviews. Don't let the fact that I said this was one of the cheapest put you off though, there's nothing cheap about this place.

We are a gay couple and the welcome was as warm as it should be to ANY couple, which was all down to the lovely Barbara. The room was a good size with an en-suite, TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Free Wi-Fi is also included, which is a massive boon for us techies, who need to contact people for business, even though we may be away for a few days.

Most importantly, the place was spotlessly clean and tidy. The breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day and the inclusion of a fridge in the lounge for guests to help themselves to cold, bottled water was a really lovely extra touch.

The next time we go to Scarborough, we are certainly not going to look anywhere else other than Robyn's and look forward to seeing Barbara and the other lovely lady who helped her again (I'm SO sorry, I can't remember her name!!)

We have returned to Robyns many times over the years since we discovered it. We have stayed in nearly all the different rooms by now! and every one has been immaculate, welcoming and beautifully decorated. Lots of little extras added to the overall comfort of our stays. Barbara is extremely friendly and helpful with advice on local amenities. The breakfast is excellent both for variety, quantity and quality. We took some American relatives there in 2012 and they were most impressed with the place. The location is central to the town, beaches, castle, Peasholm Park, marine drive and harbour. No problem with parking, passes being provided. We will always stay at Robyns when we visit Scarborough.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent, it just depends what size you need.

A very handy location close to a corner shop, the beautiful Peasholm Park, the beach, a lovely restaurant called the Coffee Bean and many more things. Our stay at Robyns was really nice. Barbara the proprietor was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. The rooms are ensuite and there are coffee making facilities available. Breakfast was cooked to order and you could pretty much have what you wanted. It was deliciously fresh and tasted gorgeous. There is a fridge in the lounge where you can help yourself to free bottled water or milk. A really nice touch. I would definitely stay here again. Very enjoyable.
