We have just returned from a wonderful 2 night weekend break with all the family. We took over the whole hotel. Jamie, Joel and Michele provided an excellent evening buffet and bar on Friday and Saturday to celebrate our ruby wedding aniversary. We had an 8,6,4 and 2 year old with us who had a great time as we were all made so welcome. The rooms were comfotable and clean and the breakfasts were very enjoyable. The Almar and Scarborough was a lovely way to spend a family celebration. Nothing was too much trouble for Jamie, Joel and Michele.

A 2 night family stay in Scarborough. We read the reviews on Tripadvisor what an excellent choice. The rooms were spotlessly clean with all you could require. We were greeted by the owner Jamie who could not have made us more welcome. The breakfast service was excellent with a very good choice, all well cooked and beautifully presented by Joel. There was a very personal service and you felt like you were staying with friends. Michelle served us breakfast on our first morning and was very helpful with places to go and see and have a meal or snack. We will be sure to return and could not recommend this hotel highly enough.

An overnight stay whilst on business in Scarborough. A warm welcome from Jamie and a single en-suite room at the rear of the hotel which was clean, quiet and with a well stocked hospitality tray. Excellent choice at breakfast, which was well cooked and efficiently served by Jamie himself. Will recommend to my friends and business colleagues.

We recently stayed at the Almar for 3 nights. It was spotlessly clean and had all that was needed to make our stay comfortable. Our room was light, airy and well heated, useful in October. The breakfasts were well cooked, and there was more than enough food to satisfy even the largest appetite. The thing that made the Almar stand out from other hotels/B & Bs was the owners. They really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to make our stay special, and to point out where things were in the town, somewhere we'd never been before. A nice touch was that on our last day we could leave the car on their car park until we were ready to go home. Should we visit Scarborough again we will definitely stay in the Almar, excellent value for money and in a quiet part of the town but within walking distance of the beach and all the attractions.

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to stay at the Almar. What an excellent choice. We wanted to stay somewhere homely and with that 'personal touch'. We were very warmly welcomed and helped with our luggage. Jamie made restaurant and taxi bookings for us whilst we relaxed at the bar for pre-dinner drinks (and it was happy hour!) Michelle served breakfast which was individually freshly cooked to perfection by Joel.They have a wealth of expertise and experience between them with the drive, enthusiasm and commitment to make this a wonderful small hotel. Always prepared to go the extra mile... or in Jamie's case... marathon!

We had a lovely first holiday as a family at the Almar! Joel Michelle and Jamie were all really welcoming and friendly, only had a one night stay but they allowed us to keep our luggage all day so we could enjoy the sun until hometime!
They were all brilliant with our little girl provided a cot and a lovely little breakfast!
Definitely will return for a longer stay!
