Excellent standard and attention to detail. We especially liked the choice at breakfast,filling in a multi choice sheet the night before. Parking was great right outside the door. We will definitely stay again,with wonderful host's Joy and John.

Very good location (between beach front and the center), excellent fresh breakfast- home made yogurts, pancakes etc. Very clean, well maintain property. Very nice, friendly owners. Space to park the car, restaurants and bars close by. Good value for the money.

I recently stayed at this lovely guest house whilst working in Scarborough. The room was spotlessly clean and very nice to come home to after a hard days work. Unfortunately I didn't have any breakfast as I had early starts so I can't comment. All in all a lovely stay at a fair price.
