With our 10th wedding anniversary coming up, we hoped to go to Paris this year, but unble to do so we decided on The Phoenix Guest House and Scarborough instead. We had a lovely warm welcome from Jenny on our arrival, and she looked after us throughout our stay, keeping our room clean and well stocked with teabags and biscuits.... More

The host's welcome and the comfortable stay at The Phoenix Guest House ensured a delightful break in Scarborough. We enjoyed fruit salad and a cooked vegetarian breakfast. The availability of soya milk was a bonus. The homemade marmalade was delicious ! Our room was cosy, and we liked the en suite facilities. A tv was also provided. The Phoenix is... More

This may not be the best review I have had, but it does contain some good information. I would heartily agree with the reviewer that we are not a suitable choice for anyone who is wheelchair bound. All the rooms and toilet facilities are up at least one flight of stairs, and although we do our best to accommodate anyone... More

Lovely owner who was really helpful, especially with parking arrangements and travel info. The room was spot on though the water pressure in the cold tap was a little low. Good location, just a couple of minutes walk from the park. Would definitely visit again.

If you want somewhere that ticks all the boxes for a B&B Guest House, this covers it. At £45 per night for a Double room, it was clean, comfortable and had everything you'd expect to find. The owner was lovely and happy to accommodate. Location to the main town and sea front is quite a distance but with Peasholm Park... More

Sorry Gemma about the parking. I can only think that you were parked in the wrong zone when you arrived and I gave you a disc to cover you until you got a space in the right one. If you come again make sure you ask me for a scratch card to cover you completely in our Zone. It was... More
