Stayed here for two nights for the first weekend in August after a last minute decision to spend a long weekend on the Yorkshire coast. Although we arrived earlier than expected we were warmly greeted and welcomed by Rose Dene's owner Sandra. She is an absolute gem! She helped us with our luggage and showed us to our room, and was most helpful with recommendations when we told her it was our first trip to Scarborough. Our family room was ideal for the three of us and had everything you needed for your stay. Everything was spotlessly clean and you can tell the owner really takes pride in her guest house and makes an effort to be as helpful as possible to her guests - nothing is too much trouble. Although our room was situated in the top of the house, there weren't millions of flights of stairs to climb (a welcome relief after our previous night's stay in a Whitby guesthouse which had several large flights to mountaineer!) Our room was airy and quite spacious, with plenty of choice on the tea/coffee tray with both instant and filter coffee available (cute little coffee machine) and a choice of regular tea or herbal teas, and also hot chocolate and biscuits much to my son's delight. Beds were comfy and bathroom spotless and well appointed with plenty of towels for the three of us. Breakfast was fab with plenty of choice including fresh fruit, juice, cereals, yogurts, toast, tea and coffee, and a selection of cooked breakfasts made to order too. Location is good and about 5 mins walk to the beach and to Peasholm Park, and about 5-10 mins walk to the outdoor theatre. There is an on-site car park with permits available for additional parking. We had no problem parking in their car park, which was good considering it was the height of the season and full occupancy too. All in all a great stay and Sandra's customer care and quality of service is excellent - she could really teach some of the large hotels a thing or too. Would highly recommend if you're thinking of staying in Scarborough.
