We stayed here with our daughter and first impressions were good! Once we got to our room although it was very clean it was very small and with travel cot in we could hardly get in and out our room which is a fire hazard in its's self! My husband was told to be quiet as someone was sleeping though the day! After that everytime my 6 month old cried I thought I would get a knock at the door! Thought the male owner was friendly but female owner was rude (don't know there names) breakfast was the only nice part of our stay here!

Stayed April 2014, traveled with family

Great location within Scarborough - closer to North Bay but the South bay is still easily accessible. Really clean room with all amenities on hand. Lovely breakfast with everything you could want. The owners were very friendly and welcoming which added to a perfect stay. Would definitely recommend and looking forward going back very soon.

Room Tip: Stayed in bedroom 2 which was lovely.

We recently had a lovely couple of nights at the Lyness Guesthouse in Scarboro, perfectly located near the North Bay so great for walking, and you can get to the South bay easily enough. Had a nice room (bedroom 2) exceptionally clean and very quiet, kettle and TV, everything we needed. Fab breakfast (got to choose what we wanted the night before), with lovely hosts who went out of their way to see we had everything we needed. Definitely go back there again, thanks.

Room Tip: Bedroom 2 had lovely fresh bedding and a comfy bed!

We stayed here for 2 nights in the summer & were given the attic room. The room was tiny, the bed creaked & the mattress was really uncomfortable. Once the suitcases were in the room there was no space for us. The TV was tiny, on top of the wardrobe, with little reception & a remote control that didn't work properly. Breakfast both days was acceptable but nothing special & the only choice of juice was orange (to which I am allergic). There also seemed to be never ending stairs!!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved every minute. The owners are very welcoming and very friendly. They could not have been anymore helpful! Scarborough is such a lovely place and we were sad to leave! The room was clean and the bathroom was fine too. There is nothing to criticise. The breakfast was nice too! If we ever return to Scarborough (which we hopefully will) then we will be staying here again. It is in the best location. On the North side of Scarborough which had a beautiful beach, peasholm park literally a few mins walk away (if that), plenty of shops nearby, the castle.....just so much! it is quieter than the South bay which was full of people! You won't be disappointed. And is child friendly too! Thank you Lyness guest house :)

Stayed for 3 nights. Owners of the guest house were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were of a good size and facilities provided were good. The rooms were exceptionally clean, couldn't find anything wrong or out of place. Good location and would be happy to recommend to others. Had breakfast with our stay and was pleased with the standard of the food and what was offered.

We stayed last weekend and had a fab time. The hotel is spotless, the breakfast is amazing and for the price you couldn't stay any where better or ask for any more. We had the family room which was more than adequate for our needs and there was free wifi and free parking too!!! We would definitely stay again
