This was our third consecutive year staying at the Raincliffe. We came across it on a website and enjoyed our first visit so much that we have come back the last two years. The owners, Mal and Katherine are two excellent people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They seem to work non-stop but are always happy to have chat, and are good for a laugh. Mal does the cooking and makes the biggest, tastiest fried breakfast that you could wish for. My wife is not keen on cooked breakfasts but finds that the buffet styled breakfast with cereal, fruit and as much toast as she can eat suits her fine. You can have an evening meal as long as you book it at breakfast. Again, the food is excellent and plentiful; try to be there for the pineapple upside down pudding. Katherine ensures that the rooms are kept spotless. The hotel is in a quiet location and. although some rooms face the main road we find that the rooms are quiet.We have stayed in three separate rooms which have been more than adequate. We were once put in the family room, which is huge. The beds are really comfortable and we always enjoy a good nights sleep. The road is wide and there is ample parking. The hotel is a short walk from the town and the beach and is ideally situated for our favourite Scarborough places, the Spa and the South Gardens. I could not recommend staying at the Rainton strongly enough; and we cannot wait to go back.
