A great place to stay, the owners are very welcoming, our room was so nice and clean. Breakfast was spot-on, very tasty. They helped us about the information of Scarborough and other places in the area. Hopefully we will return some time again soon. Thanks. :-)

Excellent location for any gigs at the open air arena, me my husband & 12 year old son stayed midweek as we had tickets for Noel Gallagher so wanted somewhere close by. It is just a short walk away so ideal! The owners Tony & Lynn were extremely welcoming & the breakfasts were delicious 😋 Will definitely be booking again...

We stayed for one night, the whole experience was great, lovely kind people who run it. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was spot on. Even lent us their iron and ironing board. Highly recommend and will go back. Thank you for making a sad visit to Scarborough very comfortable.

Stayed for one night whilst attending a two day sporting event. Run by very friendly owners who provide a very clean and comfortable property in a quiet location away from the crowds. Would fully recommend if looking for a nice friendly place to stay.

Ive stayed in a few different rooms, all...
