We have been visiting Scarborough twice a year for the cricket for many years, and have stayed in a wide variety of places, from smart hotels to basic self-catering establishments. Most have been very good and we have met some lovely people, but none had the ideal combination of location, building and personnel. That changed this time with our stay at the Duke of York.
With a wonderful combination of warmth, diligent preparation, attention to detail and genuine care of and interest in the customer, maybe Jo and her staff could teach Yorkshire CCC (and indeed Scarborough BC!) a thing or two!
Jo, I knew from our initial contacts that you would be a superstar, and you are! Many thanks!!
