“Marvellous Miricia..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Hi folks, and not long back from a a fabulous week in lovely Yorkshire... and couldnt have had a better place to stay than the Fabulous Miricia up on Rutland Terrace in the North Bay area..

From first phone call to the helpful owners Joanne and Richard to getting our key the whol e booking and check in process was as smooth and professional as it gets. Joanne was quick to assist with parking information ( parking is a premium up in Scarborough but free to residents of the Miricia) and other local information about what was going on locally over the week we were staying. Its a joy to be able to just arrive, check-in and get our bags into the room after a few hours on the road from Glasgow - especially on a sweltering day in summer.

We booked the front facing double with ensuite overlooking the North Bay and I cant say how much we we were stunned by both the quality of the room and the view Joanne had spoken about months before. Trust me folks.. room 8 is the one you want if your holiday is all about a great value room with stunning views and fabulous service. Bed size was great (even for a big 6 foot 7 inch giant like myself and all the usual services were there from free wifi, tea service and television.. the ensuite was simple but just right for what you really need.. toilet was immaculate, shower well fitted out ( a tad small for a giant like me - but great for "normal" folks) and the changing of towels without requesting was simply wonderful - thanks Joanne.. !!

So what about the brekkie ? well, thats where the "voice from below" aka Richard came in loud and proud.. a great full english was available with cereals and juices, toasts and teas as you pleased.. A great choice of cereals for kids and adults, fresh milk and juice was waiting before you arrived but very hygienic and in a superbly decorated breakfast room. Its the one thing you really notice about what Joanne and Richard are doing there - clean, safe and friendly service with attention to detail and ongoing progress..

Overall, I cant thank our hosts enough for a wonderful time and we will most certainly be booking again very soon for next year. Our friends will also be told of this superb place and I end with wishing Joanne, Richard and little Ryan all the very best...

John and Jeanette McGarrie

Room Tip: No doubt about it.. room 8 for views and quality

We stayed for one night in room 4 ( double ensuite with sea view) it had the most fantastic view over the north bay. Joanne the owner was very helpful and extremely nice which made it feel like home from home the room was clean and tidy as was the ensuite. The breakfast was good with a good selection of cereals. All in all a great B&B we will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Book the double ensuite with sea view for the view alone.

My husband and grandson visited The Miricia again for a weekend break (we have been numerous times over the last few years and would not consider going anywhere else). We noticed that Joanne and Richard the owners have been really busy by moderising and updating room no.1 and the single shower room at the top of the stairs. Looks brilliant. Their son Ryan is so cute and a credit to them. Thank you Joanne and Richard we will be coming back very soon

Room Tip: Room 1 is a family room and newly decorated with beautiful en suite

Love eveything about the mericia the family that run it a loverly. Never go anywhere else in scarbrough, rooms are lovely clean and warm best view in scarbrough loverly view of the north beach. Short walk from scarbrough castle and 10 mins from south beach If u know the short cuts. 3rd trip to the mericia wish could have stayed a week but enjoyed the 2 days had there will be going back for years to come. Very strongly recomemened the mericia to any friend or person reading this review. We both miss little Ryan sitting at are table having toast and a chat with us while we was having a wonderful breakfast. Hope to see the family very soon.

I would just like to say i can not understand some of the reviews on here about the Miricia.
My fiance and i found the Miricia on the internet last year.
We have stopped here three times in a year and have never had any complaints of any sort.
Our room is always spotless with a brilliant sea view,and has very good tea/coffee making facilities.
The lady of the house is always very friendly and sociable,and always happy to help us with directions and any information we might need.
Every time we have stayed here we have recieved a free parking permit for our car to park on the road outside the hotel.
The breakfast is always fresh and very enjoyable,the hotel is in a ideal spot for exploring the local area.
As for the rooms smelling of damp or being unclean we have never experienced any of the complaints listed on here.
Some of these reviews sound like a different hotel to the one we know and love.
My fiance and i would not stop at any other hotel now.So i would just like to say for anyone looking at booking a holiday at the Miricia do not let the odd bad review put you off,i can guarantee you will not be disapointed.
My fiance and I will be returning next year after our wedding in may.

Went to Miricia for a long weekend, must admit could have chosen a better weekend as it was cold and wet!! Nevertheless had a wonderful stay, Joanne and Richard was fantastically welcoming and the heater in the room soon thawed us out, infact I had to turn the heater down in the night as they do kick out plenty of heat. The Breakfast was huge and yummy, infact my daughter has said Richard can cook a better breakfast than me!! Plenty of drinks in the room and all top brands and the same with cereals in the morning all top brands....No expense spared. Looking forward to returning in the New Year, my daughter has said she is missing her "boyfriend" lol. Thanks for a Wonderful stay.

Just wanted to explain my 5 star rating on every point..

Me and my girlfriend decided to go to Scarborough for a long weekend, our little summer holiday! We just looked online and stumbled across Miricia and I'm so glad I did..

I've read a few reviews and I just can't seem to understand. First point, the lovely lady that greeted us was the most friendly, kind, warm and professional host we've had.. Honestly! We both said what a lovely lady she was all throughout our stay!

Our room was nice, small but certainly nothing to fault them on. The views was amazing, looking over the sea and hints of the beach. Perfect.

Breakfast every morning was lovely, tasty, good choice and again the hostess was bright, cheerful and I felt like by the end it was like living in her house.

I don't want to go into to much detail about the weekend itself as that's irrelevant to the review but we had a fantastic time and the hotel made it 100xs better!!
