“"The Best in Scarborough"”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We stayed at La Baia from Monday until Friday. Elaine and Tony are great hosts, giving you lots of good advice about Scarborough. The full English breakfasts were well served, hot and tasty, some of the best we have eaten. The double room, with sea view, was warm, clean and comfortable, well worth the money. Tony and Elaine treated us just like old friends and we will definitely be back again. We would not think of staying anywhere else in Scarborough. La Baia is situated in a perfect location. All in all, a great relaxing break, highly recommend, 11 out of 10 for La Baia.
Thanks for a great five days!
Don and Chris W

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are great

We have been staying at La Baia over the new year period for the past 6years. We couldn't ask for more. Tony and Elaine are amazing hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Waking up on New Year's Day with a magnificent view over the north bay, makes you feel wonderful. Thank you to the La Baia staff for another brilliant start to another year.

Found La Baia by chance at the end of November 2011, enjoyed my short stay so much that I couldn't wait to go back in 2012!! Have stayed numerous times since then, sometimes on my own, but also with friends who have enjoyed their stay as much as me!! Elaine and Tony are two of the nicest most friendly hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The food is excellent and plentiful. I've seen the full English breakfast, but never dared to order - amazing portions - forget diets! Meal times are flexible and the prices are very reasonable so it makes sense to have evening meals at the hotel (instead of searching for a café or restaurant) before going to the theatre or shows. Have already booked to go back again in 2014 - can't wait!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms I've stayed in have been equally good.

Taken me some time to write a review but anyway here goes.

Friendly with a great breakfast. The fresh fruit with cereal followed by the full English breakfast was a great start to the day.

Room was on the top floor which is quite a lot of stairs if you are not fully fit so mention when booking. Room I would say is fairly standard but clean and comfortable and we had a great view over the sea and bay. There was a bit of an issue with getting A TV picture and when mentioned a replacement TV was offered. However, as I think it was an aerial problem we declined. Hopefully fixed now and just affected our room.

The bar area has free WiFi and is used and friendly owners and fellow guests. I broke my rule and actually had an evening meal in the place where I stayed (I like to go out) and was not sorry. Good portions and quality food at reasonable prices.

Location is OK when you get your bearings and reasonable walk to town and beaches. On street parking which needs a parking permit which is supplied by the hotel. The charge is quite trivial so would have been a nice gesture if the hotel had supplied free. I don't have young children now but there is a play park nearby.

The only reason I have not given 5 stars as no WiFi in the room. Agreed it is not advertised with in room WiFi but I would never give a full rating to anywhere who do not offer this service or charges a fortune for a few hours use.

Good stay and would probably stay again if in the area for friendly owners an excellent breakfast.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty climbing stairs mention when booking.

We first stayed in La Baia Hotel in August 2012 and we thought it was brilliant. The room was extremely clean with a new modern bathroom and lovely view. Breakfast each morning was enjoyable with plenty to choose from. We found Tony and Elaine to be very friendly and welcoming. They were happy to help with any queries. We have now stayed there 3 times in total and we love it more each time. We will definitely be going back each year; twice if we can!! Thank you for making us feel valued as customers and helping us to enjoy our stay in Scarborough.
