“Most enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

This hotel was a last minute booking and we were thrilled that it turned out to be very good in every way for us. We rang Friday morning and booked the room for us to arrive Friday afternoon! We requested a sea view room which we found to be very comfortable with a double bed with lovely bedding , en suite bathroom, flat screen tv and a kettle with tea, coffee and biscuits. We had plenty of hanging space and drawers for our clothes and 2 high backed chairs to gaze out to sea!! Sally provided us with a clean travel cot and bedding for our Grandson so he too was comfortable. Our bathroom was all new and spotless clean. We had half board and must say we thoroughly enjoyed everything that was put infront of us. For breakfast we had lots of choice, cereals, prunes, assorted nuts and seeds, grapefruit segments, orange segments plus a lovely cooked breakfast which was served with hash browns and fried bread which set us up for the day. We had a choice of 3 dishes for our main meal and were offered fruit juice, soup and pate for our starters. Desserts were also delicious!! Our little Grandson was really looked after and he too enjoyed the food. Well done Sally and Gavin for your hospitality we thoroughly enjoyed everything about your hotel.

Located on the North Bay, which is generally quieter, this has got to be one of the best seaside B&Bs in Scarborough, especially in view of the price - £28 per person per night. That makes it especially good value for single travellers. The owners are friendly and enjoy chatting to the guests, but never fall into the trap of becoming over-familiar. It is an older building and that means no lift, lots of stairs and rooms which are perhaps a little bit on the small side, but for the price, I think what you get is reasonable. That's especially true if you manage to get a sea view room, which are available at the same price as other rooms.

The real big plus to staying here is the food. The chef is one of the owners (Gavin) and clearly takes pride in producing really good, fresh breakfasts and lovely evening meals (for £10!) which are well worth the price. You have to book in the morning and make your choices, but I would recommend trying them. Even the breakfasts were better than most hotel breakfasts, which have been left hanging around too long under the lights. Here the stuff is served fresh and brought to your table. The food, generally, could hardly have been better and is very good value.

This place won't suit everybody because some people will prefer the look and feel of a hotel, and despite the name this is very much a guest house. Also, I did think that the electric shower was rather poor (very loud motor and one of those showers that just sprinkles you with water rather than a modern power shower.) But these are minor quibbles really and, especially given the quality of the food, I would definitely recommend the Victoria Seaview to someone looking for a traditional guest house by the seaside.

Room Tip: A sea view room is obviously preferable and are available on request for the same price.

Having arrived in Scarborough late on a Friday evening on a whim, we found a vacancy, free parking, and a warm welcome at this hotel. We were offered a choice of room, both of which we were free to view before committing.
As a B&B, and the price bracket which it operates, I seriously can't find fault. The room, although a little dated, was clean and comfortable. A copious and tasty breakfast was provided efficiently by lovely staff.
If you're on a budget you certainly can't go wrong with the Victoria Seaview, and we shall certainly be calling again in the future.

We have returned again to the Victoria Seaview. This time we enjoyed the comfort of a downstairs room, which was great. We always take our little dog so "walkies" are so easy when on the ground floor. As always our welcome was great, and thanks to Gavin's cooking we ate far too much. Just got back but looking forward to going again next year.

Room Tip: We have stayed in many different rooms, and all are good value.

Have just returned after 4 nights. We needed a break after ill health and in this lovely hotel we found most of what we needed. Both breakfast and evening meal provided good, varied food and plenty of it. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Beautiful room (No. 35) with stunning seaviews, comfortable bed which was needed after climbing 46 steps. Bathroom small but with everything we needed. Value for money, this hotel could not be surpasses and its location is ideal for all the resorts amenities. Will certainly want to stay here again on our next visit to Scarborough but maybe a seaview room on the ist floor if available.

Room Tip: Room 35 is superb but if not very fit ask for a 1st floor room.

Our weekend stay was a shot in the dark never been to Scarborough so didnt know what to expect . The welcome was very friendly taken to a clean room overlooking the bay , food excellent and plenty of it. A very homely atmosphere from other guest . Very central to all things of interest to see . Completely relaxing , only thing were the steps and stairs quite a lot of them, Next time shall ask for a lower room but would definatley go again and would recomend it to anyone who doesnt want to spend a lot of money this was certainly great value .
Thank you Sally and Gavin these people never stopped to ensure a good stay .
