“scarborough experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

the service , rooms, meals, were very good and we enjoyed our stay just after xmas 2012. the meals were presented as a work of art on the plate, and were very adequate. we used a booking agency to look at the rooms and reviews given, before booking direct by phone rather than via the booking agency, and were surprised to find the rooms were dearer than if we had gone through the booking process of an agency, plus we were charged to park outside the accommodation, though this was not expensive, we were just surprised, overall the experience was a good one and one we would recommend,

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. However, we are a bit perplexed as the tariff for the rooms are exactly the same whether you book through an agency or direct with ourselves. Also, the parking permits cost us £1.60 from the council and we just pass this cost onto the guests (£1.60 for up to 4 days parking.) We look forward to seeing you again in the future

This was our first Christmas at La Baia - although we have stopped here before - we were not sure what to expect but what a great week we had. The owners Tony and Elaine as in our previous visit were absolutely super, where they get the energy from I do not know! Tony spends his days in the kitchen - all the food is home cooked on the premises by Tony - while Elaine looks after everyone's needs then they both spend the evenings in the bar socialising with the guests. Christmas day dinner was as good as any I have ever had in any hotel or restaurant that I have stopped in - in this country or abroad - and the buffet on Boxing day was something to behold. Nothing is ever to much trouble for Tony, Elaine or their team. A sure way of knowing how good, friendly and homely Christmas is at La Baia is that everyone apart from us had stopped there for Christmas previously! - and we shall return - The hotel itself overlooks the North Bay the rooms are comfortable and clean with good hot showers, the bar is a good place to relax in the evening, I do not drink alcohol and mentioned on our last visit that I enjoyed Ginger beer and lo! when we arrived this time the well stocked bar now included my favourite drink! Tony and Elaine are good at socialising and make sure that everyone is included and having a good time. In summery we would like to thank Tony and Elaine for a superb Christmas. Simon & May

We had our 2nd Christmas break at the La Bia Hotel in Scarborough. We had a great time with the Hotel owners Elaine and Tony and their team. The Hotel overlooks the North bay. Our room was very spacious with plenty of cupboard space to put all your gear in. The shower and toilet was nice and clean and also spacious. Tony looks after the cooking and what a cook he is Faultless! He cooked Christmas dinner to perfection. On Boxing day we had a buffet to die for. A dressed Salmon as a centre piece like I have never seen before. Breakfast in the morning was superb. A customized breakfast. What ever you want off the menu you get. Elaine looks after the guests and never seems to rest. She even carried one of our suit cases up to the top floor for us. We where greeted with a glass of home made punch which was out of this world. The bar is a very freindly place to spend the evening.Well stocked. Once again you are looked after by Elaine. Tony joins in after his day is finished in the kitchen. They are a very sociable pair and keep you entertained throughout the evening. They are a pair of dynamos that never seem to rest. I think they must have stunt doubles to keep up the pace! There is music from a jukebox which is not to loud so conversations can still go on. We will go back there again if all goes well. Well done Elaine and Tony and thanks for a great couple of days. Pip & Paul...

Room Tip: There is no lift to the rooms. If you have a room overlooking the bay, take binoculars.

We have found a jewel in the crown of Scarborough the La Baia Hotel, situated on Blenheim Terrace with a panaoramic view of the North Bay and only five minutes walk to the bustling town centre. A welcome warmer than toast, friendly and first class service and food, this is a treat not to be missed. As Arnie said "i.ll be back".

Room Tip: East faceing rooms have a great view of the north bay and castle

We have stayed at La Baia once previously, and found just the same quality and hospitality on this last visit. Tony & Elaine are fantastic hosts, and the hotel itself is warm and welcoming.
The evening meals and breakfasts are second to none, and we have enjoyed every minute of our stay there. No hesitation in recommending this hotel. Thank you once again Tony & Elaine for making us so welcome.

2nd visit to La Baia just as good if not better than the first as this time we took the opportunity to sample Tony s wonderful home made evening meals, which were fantastic and brilliant value for money! don't bother wasting your time looking for somewhere else to eat in Scarborough you couldn't get much better in our opinion. A warm homely welcome good facilities we had a great time !
