“Great guest house great hosts.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Great guest house great hosts.
Room was very clean only down side was mattress was a bit too hard and the shower was frezzing. But other than that it was a good stay at a good price of £ 26 each. Overall fantasic.

The Amrock Guest House is an excellent quality and value guest house in Scarborough. I've stayed in many over the years whilst visiting family and for me this has been the best value. The decor is tasteful and appears recently done and everything was spotlessly clean. Amrock is near the North Bay and very close to Peasolm Park. There are steps up to the front door and all rooms are on either the first or second floors so it may not be suitable for those who have difficulties with stairs. The breakfast was freshly cooked. All rooms are ensuite and have facilities to make hot drinks and a TV with Freeview. I was able to book through Hotels.com and with a voucher code got 10% discount. I stayed in a single room which was very comfortable.

Good place to stay, nice bright room, lots of space to 'put things' Very, very clean everthing needed for a comfortable stay. Nice welcome from Nicola and Andy who were helpfull when needed. Good breakfast with varied choice for veggies delicious fresh fruit and yogurt.. The dining room was really pleasant and we didnt have to sit at table with strangers (a pet hate!) The Amrock has a good parking system providing guests with a permit for on street parking, this is great as the North Bay area is very busy all the summer. Anyone in Scarborough for the cricket would love this place as its just a couple of streets from the ground. Great location for Peasholm park and the great walk allong the re furbished prom into town.

Room Tip: Our front room had a bay window and was a good size.

This place is cheap but really nice: they should charge more. The hosts were lovely, the twin room was freshly and tastefully decorated and furnished, the shower was brilliant and there was oodles of storage in the room. The b&b is a minute from the lake in Peasholm Park in one direction and a minute from the coastal walk in the other. We've already booked for next year.

My husband and I stayed at the Amrock Guest House for four nights in August and can highly recommend it. Our room was very comfortable, clean and felt 'homely'. The couple who run the guesthouse were very friendly and helpful and the cooked breakfast was lovely and cooked to your own requests (cereal was also available).

The location is excellent. Within 5 minutes walk, you are overlooking the North Bay and a not too long walk to the South Bay and Castle. Literally a few minutes walk from the Guesthouse is a lovely fish and chip shop (take away only) which I would strongly recommend as well as a restaurant with a large choice of meals at very reasonable prices (they do say it's cheaper up north!).

A 30 minute walk away is Scarborough Train Station and Scarborough town centre. You can get a bus into Whitby and the train to York (50 minute ride).

I would highly recommend Amrock Guesthouse for a restful and comfortable stay, with welcoming owners, great food, great location.
