Reviewed August 7, 2007

this was a lovely bed & breakfast and was very clean. Lovely views over the north bay. We were in a back bedroom and it was tiny...we couldnt move and we were looking onto a lot of houses.........so if we were to stay again, we would defintely upgrade to a sea view room as i assume they are larger. Staff were nice and the breakfast was good. The size of the room let our stay down.

We can only re-iterate the fabulous reviews that this hotel so rightly deserves. Hotel Helaina is an absolute gem of a place to stay in Scarborough… miss it at your peril !! We have stayed in a few other hotels on this coast and none of them compare to the Helaina. The place is tasteful and spotless. Everyone working there are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is amazing – right down to the tasteful salt and pepper pot !! . We would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family and look forward to our return visit.

Definitely the place to stay in Scarborough.

We stayed for a weekend and wished we could have stayed longer. We had a seaview room which was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and we couldn't fault the place.

I loved the decoration and the whole feel of the place. Our friends were also delighted with it.

Excellent service and good breakfast . Tom and Jill are really friendly in a very genuine way. Sometimes you read reviews and you think it cant be THAT good surely. Well it is.

On the other hand why aren't there more places like this in England?
