“Home from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

May 19th just got back from a few days in Scarborough. Stayed here at Lonsdale as we have done in the past and it is 1st class it is like home from home. The rooms are spotless beds are comfortable and the breakfast is perfect if they have it you get it. We have stayed in Scarborough a few times at different B&Bs I have to say this tops the list no more searching for us. It is a 15min walk to the sea front but only a 5min walk to a few local shops a pub or two or a supermarket. Try it you will not be sorry

If you are staying in Scarborough, then the Lonsdale Villa is an excellent choice. The rooms, and indeed the whole property is "spotless" (a term used by many who have previously reviewed this guest house, justifiably!)
Lonsdale Villa is located in a quiet area with little traffic noise but it is still within easy walking distance of the main town and well placed if you fancy walking the "Cleveland way" , an 8 mile walk along the coast from Scarborough to Filey. You can take the bus back and get off at the end of Lonsdale Road.

There is ample free on street parking close to Lonsdale Villa.
Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and we can only endorse the comments made by other reviewers (Positive ones!)

We stayed in one of the smaller double rooms, as did our friends and have to say it was more than adequate for our weekend stay, comforatbly and attractively furnished with everything you need, including tea and coffee making facilities and a very tidy, if small bathroom.

We would certainly recommend staying here. I don't habitually review everywhere I go or stay but (like so many others) often check out trip advisor before we book. Credit where it is due, the Lonsdale is good value, clean and comfortable.

There is plenty to do in and around Scarborough. We visited Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Bridlington which all within easy drive. We even managed a few hours in York on the way home. What a great weekend!

We managed to book for a last minute overnight stay here. The accommodation was spotless, very nice decor & the bed was extremely comfortable. Jackie and Grant are very pleasant and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent too. There's plenty of choice & cooked to order. The location is good & parking no problem. Would definitely recommend & will be staying here again.

2 night stay here, hosts are very friendly, helpful and welcoming and the rooms are extremely clean, stylish and comfortable, superb breakfasts with plenty of choice, well cooked and very tasty! Located slightly out of the town and on top of a hill, but this makes it even better as it is very quiet, it is easy to park and walking down into the town affords lovely views of the seafront and harbour; can't recommend The Lonsdale Villa strongly enough, very good value too!
