Excellent B&B. Clean and tidy throughout. Friendly pleasant staff. Good local knowledge of the area. I'd highly recommend a stay. Good choice at breakfast time. Free wifi thank you Val and family for a very pleasant stay. Just what I needed. I will be returning soon.

Our first ever trip to Scarborough so we were very lucky to end up bang in between the north and south ends.This place was comfy and welcoming. I had perfectly done boiled eggs for breakfast one day - a real treat! Its an old building so noise travels easily between the floors so tread gently.If in the area we would use The Barrington again.

Room Tip: Plastic backed undersheet made bed way too hot.Suggest removal in summer.

I have done many UK travels, but never visited the North East coast. So we decided to travel to Scarborough for the Easter weekend with the two boys.

Finding a suitable place to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children in one room isn't an easy task, especially during the holiday season at a popular destination. All the major budget hotels were either full or could not accommodate us all in one room at all ~ upon our great search and on the brim of cancelling the holiday, we came across The Barrington.

We were delighted to know the place was able to accommodate us, and provide full English breakfast at a really decent price. Plus judging from the images of the B&B, it looked really presentable and clean ~ we booked it at the first instance (incase someone nabbed it before us).

When we arrived in Scarborough, we actually drove past the place a few times ~ missing it totally. This is because we were 'real' tourist ~ we don't look up! Its actually on Eastborough, but to access Palace Hill you will need to go up the steps. If you check it on Google Maps, and use the little guy for the street view, you'll understand what I mean, plus it will give you a clear idea where the B&B is located ~ I should have done this before I travelled (silly me)!

It doesn't have a car park, and finding a street parking space without having a residential permit was a challenge. But do not despair, the B&B will provide you this permit ~ so there's free parking!

We were situated in the family room which was spacious ~ enough room for us to do cartwheels in! The twin beds were extremely comfy for the lads, so no complaints from them. The adults were on the double bed, which was alright to relax. The room itself was neat, clean and presentable. There was an information booklet providing details of the accommodation itself, local activities and recommended restaurants. Also they provide our much needed modern essential - free Wi-fi!!!

Our bathroom was a separate room itself, only next door ~ which we did not mind at all, because this made it feel like as if we were really at home. The bathroom is absolutely spotless, and they do provide some toiletries for your basic needs.

They have a little leaflet stand containing all the local activities, just after the first lot of steps ~ which is extremely useful when you have not really made any plans.

Breakfast was extremely delightful, and I wouldn't mind having seconds too! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming too, made us all feel like we were having first class treatment.

Overall, the cute home-warming B&B is a place I would definitely recommend to all travellers whether its for one night or longer. Once you have met the owner, you'll feel right at home straightaway!

Stayed there with my little ones for a weekend break. The room was lovely and spacious, modern and well decorated and very clean. You can tell this B&B is well looked after, home from home. So close to the Beach and Castle and local shops and restaurants. Lovely friendly staff and fantastic full english breakfast which I'd recommend before a walk on the beach. Super value for money too, we'll be going again :-)

I stayed for a weekend away, The B & B was perfect, which is situated on the main street leading up to the shops, and 5 mins walk to the beach. The Barrington was clean, and tidy.. Breakfast was the best i have had in a B & B, well catered for, as i am a vegetarian and my partner had a full breakfast.. The staff were really friendly and would do anything to help.. This place is well worth a visit,

Stayed at the Barrington with my wife this last Saturday,our intention was to revisit the b&b that we celebrated our engagement 16 years previous and have a St Paddys day out on the lash.
we had a brilliant time and were really impressed how the present owner has put her heart and soul into re-vitalising the Barrington.
The room was impeccably clean,the breakfast [which she kindly made early for us]was lovely.
If you require a clean,well decorated and homely atmosphere then look no further for a place to stay than this.
