Spent a few days over the new year at this b&b and had an excellent stay. The b&b itself was gorgeous and rooms were immaculate and very comfortable and the fact we were allowed to take our dog was great. The hosts John and Gillian were really lovely people and very welcoming. Its hard to believe they have only had the b&b since February but really deserve to do well. All in all it was one of the best b&bs we have ever stayed in and are already looking at returning sometime this year. Thank you so much!!

We booked a weekend @ John Gillian's b&b on its previous reviews. We were not to be disappointed, everything was brilliant. They made our 30 month old grandchild feel at home. This b&b deserves to succeed as it looks after it's guest's totally. In the room we stayed in top floor, even with Main Street outside it was quiet! The room was very good, a bit low in places as it is in the top floor area, but we coped. The bathroom very modern with great shower, but a little cramped. But manageable for a shortish stay, especially with regards to the room price. Breakfast of excellent value and quality. Service attentive without been overbearing. Everything you could want for a nice visit to Scarborough, only down side was parking on the road, but again it's a b&b not a 5* hotel. We mentioned to John to maybe look into having caffeine free tea for breakfast, as my wife cannot medically have caffeine, we normally take her tea bags with us, but forgot. John said it was a good idea and will look into it for future guests. Not a a criticism, but mentioned as a help, as the comment was taken as such. Which shows that clients happiness is paramount in the success of North Bay b&b. deserve 100% to prosper. We for 1 will return whenever we are in Scarborough, unless word gets about and they are fully booked 52/7 ! K & L. Thanks.

We stayed here just for one night for our Xmas celebrations. The hotel is very clean and bright. The lounge and breakfast area are really nice with an open-planned layout. Bedroom was again very good and bed really comfortable. Nice hot shower in the morning followed by the most appetizing Yorkshire breakfast with black pudding, Yummy!!!

I would really recommend this hotel for a short stay or a weeks holiday it felt very homely.

Just returned from a brilliant New Years Eve stay at the North Bay in Scarborough. Nothing was too much bother for the owners who run a fabulous B and B ....... Room 7 was lovely with everything we needed. They booked us a taxi, welcomed us into their lounge and even asked what time we wanted breakfast...... 10 am on New Years Day was incredibly accommodating :) All in all a fabulous stay and we will certainly return soon.

Thank you both so much

Just had a lovely stay at north bay guesthouse. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the overall feel of the guesthouse was very comfortable and well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Our bed was a proper king size and the best, most luxurious we have slept in while in Scarborough and we felt refreshed afterwards. Our breakfast was hot and very filling, and there was plenty of everything. The breakfast area was very relaxing, and nicely set out. I would stay at the north bay again and will recommend this guest house to family and friends.

I will never stay anywhere else! Stayed recently on business with three other colleagues but will definitely return with my husband for a holiday. Our hosts were wonderful - nothing was too much trouble. I stayed in the first floor double room which was lovely. Gillian and John's guest lounge are was beautifully decorated and they'd left no detail to chance - there was a large and festive Christmas tree which added to the immaculate and tastefully decorated room. Gillian's breakfasts are a legend - quality and cooking were both top class. John couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating - he even booked a local restaurant for us as we were late back from our day's business and hadn't been able to book anything ourselves. I stay in a hotel or guest house at least once per week and this IS THE BEST BY FAR I have ever stayed in in terms of friendliness, décor, comfort, wonderful breakfast and wonderful hosts. I would recommend it UNRESERVEDLY. Thanks Gillian and John - see you again I hope!

Room Tip: Don't worry about which room you sleep in - even my room at the front of the house was completel...
