We stayed at the Almar for almost a week in chilly January, but the warmth of the hospitality showed by Jamie and Michelle more than made up for the weather. The accommodations were clean, cozy and comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. Jamie was a fount of knowledge on the local area and made some excellent restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was hearty and delicious and we could not have asked for more from our stay. I cannot recommend this hotel too highly.

Room Tip: This is a small hotel - Jamie will be sure to give you the best room available.

This is the second time we've stayed hear, and would come back time and time again,as the service and the hosts are 5 star. We even stayed an extra day because we liked it so much, had to move rooms as there was someone booked in the one we were in, but it was no trouble it was only for one night and Jamie sorted everything out and even moved our luggage while we went out walking, came back and everything was sorted. We will be back.
It was also nice to see Michelle looking well, as she was very poorly the last time we stayed. See you all again soon.

We stayed at the Almar for two nights whilst visiting family. It is a good location for seaside and town, very warm welcome from Jamie and extremely comfortable.
A very good breakfast. Room very clean with everything we needed. We will be back and will certainly recommend it to friends and family.

Just got back from a 4 night stay at The Almar where we were made very welcome from the moment we walked in. Immaculately clean, lovely room, excellent breakfast. Jaimie was more than helpful telling us best places to eat drink etc made our stay as good as it could be. Will be staying there again whenever we go back to Scarborough and definitely recommend to any friends that are thinking of a short break in Scarborough. Thank you Jaimie and Michelle, see you again probably next summer. Cheers xx Jill and Chris
