I stayed at Scarborough fayre for one night with my husband to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. Our criteria for choosing a hotel/b&b was its position, we know Scarborough well and the North Bay is our fave place to stay - we booked a room with a sea view. We'd read the reviews, so were prepared for the hotel to be dated and a little shabby. We phoned ahead to say we'd arrive at 9am and to ask if we could park up and come back later, we were told we could book in when we got there, so that was brill, It meant I could hang our stuff up instead of it creasing in the car - the car park is massive too.
The landlady was really friendly and helpful, we were shown to our room, which was a family room instead of a double, so was very roomy - it had been nicely decorated, comfortable clean beds, and the view amazing.
The hotel has a few niggles, the bathroom extractor was so noisy we had to wee with the door open in the night so as not to wake the whole building, the doors really needed replacing, or at least painting and the locks replacing. I think the landlady took into consideration the complaint about a room being cold because, although a hot day, our radiator was red hot, we had to open the windows fully, and they remained open the whole time we were there.
The breakfast was lovely, with a gorgeous sea view too. I would definitely recommend this simple, clean, reasonably priced, perfectly positioned, friendly staffed hotel to anyone who doesn't care that it's quite dated, and my lack of 5 stars just reflects the niggles and updating it needs.
