What a lovely family and place to stay. Andy couldn't have done anything more to make our stay perfect. The room was huge and exceptionally clean and the breakfast was brilliant. Myself, my partner and our little girl were made to feel very welcome. Can highly recommend to anyone.

After being let down by another hotel our unplanned stay here rescued our weekend. From the moment the manager Andy greeted us at the door it became apparent that he couldn't do enough for us even at extremely short notice. Both rooms we stayed in (1 & 4) were spacious and nicely decorated in a 'boutique' style (no chintz in sight) with large flat screen TVs and modern bathrooms complete with excellent showers. The hotel also has a bar and a contemporary lounge area where you can relax over a few drinks as an alternative to the Scarborough nightlife. Food is available at lunch time and in the evening (Tapas menu) but we didn't try it on this occasion. We would thoroughly recommend this small and extremely friendly hotel to anyone who likes something a little different to your traditional Scarborough B&B as I am sure you will be made to feel as welcome as we were and have an extremely enjoyable stay. We have stayed at other similar hotels around the country and would say this is definitely great value for money and we will definitely be making a return visit.

What a lovely welcome we received from Andy and his family (including Charlie who, at 4 months can give a beautiful smile!) Our room was a super size at the front of the house, spotlessly clean and very well decorated. Andy was so friendly and recommended a lovely Italian restaurant for our evening meal. The breakfast was great and free parking just outside made everything so easy. Even the weather was really good. Seagulls were noisy but then what do you expect so close to the beach! Would certainly stay here again. Thanks Andy.

We stayed for two nights, to attend a family wedding. It was the perfect location, as it was not far from where the actual wedding was taking place. Having endured a long drive to get to Scarborough it was nice to be greeted by Andy, who was genuinely pleased to see us. He offered to come and help get the bags from the car etc.. Our room was very spacious, clean and well decorated. Cannot fault Andy or any members of his staff as they were all very friendly, helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. They all made you feel very welcome and took an interest in your plans for the day etc If we ever make it back to Scarborough would definately stay here again and would have no problems recommending No 17 to anyone.

Excellent. Having lived in Scarborough for 28 years and now moved South I needed somewhere to stay for one week due to a new grandson. A friend recommended 17, West Street. What a delightful stay. Andy was a great host, looked after me and feed me well. Enjoyed a good breakfast and the odd tipple in the bar in the evening. My room was lovely, clean and spacious with an excellent view towards the sea. His delightful wife Misha and his son Charlie made me feel very welcome also. Heres to Andy and many more stays at 17 West Street.

Room Tip: Go for Family run hotel rather than the Big Groups, you do get a better service.

We booked for three nights at 17 West Street, because it was supposed to be a luxury b & b.On arrival it was obviously a clean and nicely decorated place. Andy showed us to our room, no.9. There was no luxury. The furniture, all odd, was akin to what one would find in a junk shop. The bedside cabinets were strange having no drawer or door. merely a dummy drawer with a shelf accessible from the rear. The window was an attic dormer type. The opening window casement fastener was broken and the casement itself would not close. The dormer cheeks were glazed but had no curtain or covering, allowing the sun to shine on one bed very early in the morning.The ill-fitting room door rattled all night until I stuffed a sock into the gap. Only one of the beds had a bedside light, probably as there was no convenient power point.
At breakfast, being light eaters we requested only bacon and egg.The bacon was like over baked cardboard for the first two days, so on the last we just had eggs.
Considering that this establishment is middle to top end price b & b, Andy needs to review furniture and food quality.
As my wife and I are both qualified chefs, and in one previous business, sourced and supplied quality foodstuffs for the banqueting suite at a local stately home
