Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent two nights here over Bank Holiday weekend. The hotel is ideally situated in a quiet, peaceful location, and only a few minutes walk to the Open Air Theatre, Peasholm Park and the beach. The hotel is nicely decorated, clean and welcoming. The owners, Dave and Gill, are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is great. Would definitely stay...

This guest house is unbeatable for welcoming, cleanliness,convenience and exceptional breakfasts. Nothing is too much trouble. There cannot be better value in Scarborough. The location is perfect for Peasholm park also.

Newly renovated, a visit to The Headlands is definitely worth the drive. Fabulous views, great food and service, and plenty of room both inside and out to soak it all up. Can't wait to go back with our visitors from Melbourne in a couple of weeks.

It would be hard to find a better small hotel on the North Side of Scarborough. Ideally located for all North Side attractions, including Peasholm Park, the Open Air Theatre and North Cliff Golf Club. Front rooms give good views of the North Bay and castle. Dave and Gill will make you welcome, and have put together an excellent information...

We had an overnight stay and it was fantastic. We were upgraded to a superior room with a hugh walk in shower. There was no noise whatsoever and very comfortable bed. Breakfast filled us up for the rest of the day. We would return any time to this hotel. Dave and Gill were very helpful.

The Headlands was a lovely place to stay for the weekend recently, the room was bright, airy and spotlessly clean, Dave and Gill were friendly and couldn't do enough for us, and the breakfast was first rate, all in all i wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Headland to my friends and family.

We were upgraded to a superior room which had been recently refurbished/redecorated. Lovely big bed and the en suite was excellent with separate bath and shower. Parking on site was limited but there was free on street parking right outside. Gill and her husband were very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was excellent.
