We were in Room 7 and the double bed was very cheap and uncomfortable and creaked and groaned with every move. after two nights we were ready for a good night... More

We often come up to North Yorkshire to visit relatives but our usual accommodation wasn't available so we searched further afield and found this place in Scarborough. It turned out to have been a great choice and we will definitely come back again. It is perfectly located on the north shore; we had rooms 12 and 14 on the top... More

Arriving at this pretty hotel we were greeted by the friendly staff and taken to a very clean sea-view room. Unfortunately the foot of the bed was so close to the wall, that you had to shuffle sideways to pass it to the window. The bed was also particularly hard. For location and friendliness this hotel is hard to beat,... More
