Stayed at my favourite Scarborough hotel for another short 3-day break and, as usual, was not disappointed - friendly owners and staff (and friends), comfy room and usual excellent freshly cooked breakfast to start the day. Look forward to coming back next year for a few more short breaks.

Arrived in Scarborough by train and only a short walk to the hotel, front of the hotel is situated on a quite looking street with a small park area infront. Outside seating available. Made to feel very welcome on arrival, given a family room at the very top of the hotel, overlooking the back of the shopping centre. Room tired...

The Chessington is a family-run B&B in an Edwardian hotel. We had a room at the top with great views of The Crescent and of South Bay beyond it. The location really can't be beaten - it's about halfway between the railway station and South Bay, making access to both the town and the seafront about as great as it...

We have stayed at this hotel which is a B&B many times before. Kate & Adrian who run this are excellent hosts. It is ideally placed for all amenities ie shops, beach, walks and railway station. The view from the front over the park is beautiful. Parking is round the crescent with permit parking obtained from the hotel. This hotel...

I stayed with 2 friends for 1 night. We had a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the park. It was a nice size and the bathroom was clean and tidy. The beds were a bit rickety but comfy and the decor was a little dated. The staff were all very friendly and very helpful. Breakfast had a...

Not brand new but with traditional charm. Staff I met were all very friendly and checking in took only seconds. Room was small but not cramped. Breakfast was substantial, in scope and quantity. I think you would struggle to find anything to compare for the price.

We stayed 2 nights and had a front room at the top. The hotel was obviously a bit classy in its time but is now showing its age. It was hot but there was no ventilation through the staircase or passages which left it all having a musty feel. Parking was fine with the £3 tickets. The location is the...

As many reviews have said, it's a traditional style of hotel, quite dated, but charming. The female owner was very friendly. Lovely location on the crescent. We got a parking permit that covered us for more than 12 hours but we were lucky to get a space. Our room however was quite disappointing. We had a family room at the...
