We stayed for 2 nights at the Almar to celebrate Carls 50th birthday. From the moment we arrived we were treated like Jamies friends.It is in a perfect location near Peasholme park. The room was so comfortable and decorated to a high standard as was the rest of the hotel. Spotlessly clean and with everything you need to have a lovely stay.The breakfast was beautiful and plentiful. Michelle and Stacey were so friendly. Carl even got a 50th Birthday card. There are plenty of places to eat nearby. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. Home from home. Will definitely be going back. x

I recently stayed for just 2 nights at The Almar. My son stayed there with his daughter for a week last year and spoke very highly of the hotel - and I wasn't disappointed! I couldn't fault the place - spotlessly clean, well appointed and comfortable bedroom and an excellent breakfast. All at a very reasonable price too. They fully deserve their high rating on Tripadvisor.
YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

Room Tip: I stayed in First Floor Room 4 at the rear of the hotel - which was the same room my son had occupie...

If you are needing pampered this is the place to be. Jamie will treat you like a long lost cousin and shower you with kindness. The location is handy for everything you might need. Great restaurant nearby called the coffee bean. we had 3 super days in Scarborough and could have stayed longer enjoying the almars hospitality.Super duper breakfast as well. And the weather was fab.

A most welcoming and relaxing palce to stay. Jamie was incredibly helpful and his advice really helped us make the most of our stay in Scarbororugh. It is in pleasant location with Peasholme Park and the North Bay just a short walk away. The room we had was en-suite but basic however it was well maintained with everything there should be and all working. Although full, it was very quiet at night. The breakfast was pleasant and more than ample. There is a real attention to detail here and a genuine desire for guests to enjoy their stay.
It is a reasonable walk to South Bay but there is a regualr open top bus service along the front. An excellent palce to enjoy Scarborough from.

Many thanks to Jamie & Michelle. A very friendly welcome on arrival, which was at a time to suit us. Jamie provided a map of Scarborough with excellent directions of how to get to places and how long it would take us to get there. The guest house is beautifully decorated with a modern feel. Our room and ensuite were spotless with tea/coffee making facilities, TV , hairdryer and complimentary shower gel and shampoo. The towels and bed linen were pristine. Full english breakfast was excellent with our choices being cooked fresh to order and not at all greasy. Breakfast/bar room was also spotless. Jamie and Michelle obviously take great pride in their guest house and this shows in all aspects. Can highly recommend The Almar and if we ever visit Scarborough again we will definitely be back. Excellent value for money.

What a fantastic choice, especially after our disappointing stay in Whitby.

The Almar deserves the fivestar rating on here. Jamie is an excellent host and took the time to inform us of things to do and where to eat etc. in Scarborough. Our room was spotless and nicely decorated. Facilities were good: tea and coffee provided, good sized TV, hairdryer provided and the use of an iron and ironing board was available for all guests. WiFi was not that great, however. Breakfast was superb, good quality fayre and it's nice to see fresh fruit offered apart from the usual apple and orange!! One thing that attracted us was the free parking, an added bonus. In addition, the bar prices were good and there was a good choice of drinks on offer.

I will have no hesitation in recommending The Almar to family and friends. If you go, you will certainly enjoy your stay!!
