Fab B&B in a very good location. Very close to beach, shops, all touristy things really. Cannot fault anything with accommodation. Clean and tidy rooms, very friendly staff and probably the biggest cooked breakfast I've ever seen! Very good value for money, but have been told to book direct next time, not through a web booking agent.

Can't fault the staff/owner for the welcome & attention. Very clean room with new bathroom suite etc. plenty of space in the family room (there were just 2 of us). Breakfast was plentiful & delicious. A great base for anyone wanting to stay near the centre but in a quiet location.

We have just returned from another relaxing stay at this fab hotel. Book direct through the hotel not through the internet as they take an additional 25% off the owners and we should support small businesses in these tough times. We don't go for anything that Scarborough has to offer but go for the relaxing break in a beautiful hotel...

Wonderful food, spotless and very comfortable indeed. Excellent value for money and great hosts. I loved it. Kathy and Malcolm will make you very welcome. You may need to diet when you return home but it will have been worth it.

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
