“a fantastic stay”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Having met Ian and Lynne before we had no hesitation in staying in there new b&b, they are so friendly and helpful, nothing is to much trouble to them, perfect host's, my wife and i traveled on my motor bike and was safely parked round the back in a nice secure yard. the room was spotless and was just the job. The location is ideal for a short stroll into town, several pubs close enough if you don't fancy going far.
Breakfast was spot on, if you want full English, scrambled egg on toast, or any thing off the menu, you wont be disapointed. All in all, would we stay here again, yes we would, without hesitation.
Just to finish of, on a lighter note, ask Ian if he would show you his, zorba the Greek impression at breakfast, it was brilliant.
Thanks guys for a great stay.
Paul and Wendy

We have always had a great welcome and an excellent stay at the owners' previous establishments and this one was no exception. The only reason we have given only 4 stars for the rooms is because they weren't quite finished when we stayed, we're sure they would deserve 5 now. The location rating depends on the reason for your stay, only a couple of doors from an excellent restaurant and close to Peasholme Park and the town centre, but like most guest houses in Scarborough it's not overlooking the sea. (You'd no doubt pay much more at an establishment that is). Parking wasn't a problem. We are confident to highly recommend The Donnington to anyone (and often do). Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the smallest of the double rooms and the size was fine, they have larger ones if you pr...
