“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Normally when I travel, I tend to stay in hotels but for a change I decided to try a guesthouse this time on a visit to Scarborough. What a pleasant surprise it was!
The owner, Chris made me feel most welcome and his manager/housekeeper, Jackie, made me feel quite at home and her breakfasts were brilliant setting me up for the day.
Parking was a doddle with free overnight street parking outside, a welcome facility in this day and age.
I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 3 at the front was fantastic with a splendid bay window

Thanks for your kind review and postive comments, parking in any popular tourist destination can be sometimes tricky which is why we supply parking permits for overnight stays and 'discs' for those arriving late and going early, even if the main run is busy a space can always be found in nearby streets around the lovely Peasholm Park area.

Christian

stayed here on satruday night with my little boy, chris and jackie and very friendly and helpful and bent over backwards for me and my lad, the place is clean and tidy and newly decorated and so was our room, the breakfast was lovely with a wide range to choose from, it was an ideal place for us to stay and is perfectly located for the north bay and south bay, will definatley go back again.

It was a pleasure to have you both stay and i'm pleased you liked your room, the North Bay is great for spending time with kids and with the new outdoor pool starting construction soon it will add a new dimension to an already special area, thanks for your kind words.
