First time staying at the property but surely not the last. Ideal location just a block from the center of shopping. The proprietors were extremely cordial and helpful. Being a Yank from across the pond I enjoyed the English breakfast immensely.

This bed and breakfast place is in the centre of Scarborough not far from the railway station and within easy reach of just about anywhere in Scarborough. It is run by an elderly couple who are great. They are really friendly and very helpful. I've stayed here a few times now and hope to do so again in the future....

On our arrival we were met with a nice welcome from Jill who was very helpful concerning all the practical details of our stay. The hotel is situated in a delightful crescent with a church and small park area opposite, and so is relativeley quiet for such a central location. We went to a show at the open air theatre...

I stayed for a night in October, 2012 and was most impressed. The business is run by an elderly couple who are very friendly and most helpful. The building is situated in a crescent with no through traffic and it is, therefore quite quiet. The room was warm and comfortable with a television set. There is a communal lounge with...
