We received a very warm welcome at the Raincliffe. The breakfasts were generous, and prepared to an excellent standard. Our room was very clean and comfortable. There is parking immediately outside the property, with a permit, which was very reasonable at £4 for 3 full days. Raincliffe is in an excellent location - just a 10 minute walk to South...

We had a great stay! :) The location is great. Our room had everything you needed, tea/coffee facilities and a tv included and the beds were comfy. The ensuite was a good size too. The breakfast was really good and everything we ate was very tasty. We would return again.

From meeting Mal when we checked in we were made to feel welcome and at home in the Raincliffe Hotel. The family room was lovely and perfect for us. The ensuite was pristine. The beds were very comfortable and breakfast was amazing. I would thoroughly recommend the Raincliffe to anyone.

Third time we've stayed although this was for the full week. Even better than six years ago. Spotlessly clean.

This is our second visit to Raincliffe. I don't think we would consider staying anywhere else. The owners are very friendly, the rooms are spotless and the breakfast is 5 star. What more could you ask for.

Having stayed here a few times before, we know what to expect - Mal and Katherine were wonderful as ever and went above and beyond the call of duty, when a seagull took a superbly aimed pot-shot at me, and washed my shirt!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Are you fed up with searching for the right combination of quality and value when staying in beautiful Scarborough? Look no further than the Raincliffe. We are a top graded licensed small hotel/guesthouse, ten minutes level walk to Spa, south beach, theatres with the town and museums also close by. We offer excellent refurbished accommodation (not just a lick of paint), consistently high standards with comfortable beds, spotless en-suites, high quality food and most importantly a warm, genuine welcome. Consistently positively reviewed on many accommodation websites for the last 5 years, contributor to the 'Scarborough' TA forum and winners of Channel 4's '3 in a bed'. We welcome well behaved children over 8 years and regret that we do not accept pets. ... more   less
