“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed at the ellenby B&B last year for a couple of nights in a sea view room that was very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. I am returning shortly for a weeks stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to anyone looking to stay in Scarborough

John & Elza Fail couldn't be more welcoming at the Hotel Ellenby. The hotel is in a fantastic position overlooking the castle. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable, and lovely breakfasts set you up for the day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Scarborough.

My friend and I have just returned from a short break staying again at the Ellenby hotel. We were given a warm welcome from John and Elza and after unpacking enjoyed a complimentry glass of sherry in our room with fantastic views of the north bay. We stayed in room 3 which was large, extremely comfortable, and attention to detail was faultless.

Breakfast each morning was superb, and overall our stay at the Ellenby was exceptional value for money. Our hosts were always helpful and informative and nothing was too much trouble. Our last afternoon we enjoyed relaxing in the comfortable lounge with a glass of wine while waiting for our texi John had kindly ordered. Another short break there next September is definitely on the cards. Thank you John and Elza

Room Tip: Bedrooms overlooking the sea have fantastic views

Booking was made partly on the basis of reviews - we were returning to holiday in Scarborough after a gap of 15/20 years. We chose the right hotel! John and family run a first class small hotel. Room excellent and sparkling clean with wonderfully comfortable bed and great facilities. Little extras like 'real' as well as instant coffee, bottled water etc add to the quality. John provides free wi-fi which is an added bonus.

We could only stay 4 nights on this occasion but hope to stay longer this time. and will not choose a different hotel - others are not likely to match the Ellenby.

I almost forgot THE BREAKFAST - amazing quality and flavour and we were set up for the day after this.

Very well done, John and Elza. See you again soon we hope! Thank you very much,
Ivan and Margaret

Just to say another big thank you for John & Elza for their wonderful hospitality over the weekend. The sherry treat was a lovely surprise - thank you again. Room 3 will certainly be our choice of room from now on! The full english breakfast is delicious and certainly kept us going during our bike ride.
Thank you once again and keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you again.

Regards Jax & Di.x

Room Tip: Room 5 and Room 3 have brilliant views.

I stayed at The Ellenby last week for two nights to attend an outdoor concert.
The location was perfect not only for the concert venue but for seeing the
other sights in town. I had to opportunity to spend part of the day in
common area of the hotel. It rained most of the day and during the outdoor
concert. Several others and I spent the afternoon discussing the up coming
concert.
My room was wonderful with everything I need to make my stay a
pleasant experience.
John and Elza went out of their way to provide information about
the concert venue and where to go to buy extra rain gear. They
also arranged a taxi for my very early morning trip to the train station.
