Stayed in this delightful cottage that is run by the management and staff at the Helaina. Couldn't fault it at all, we stayed as a family and all loved this cottage and immediately felt at home. This is the place to stay for an excellent location. Should be renamed Mary Poppins cottage because it is practically perfect in every way.

The bed was really comfortable (that is praise indeed from a back sufferer) Linen & towels very good quality lots of little extra touches.

We stayed here whilst on a short stay to do business in Filey and we loved it. We had the basement holiday flat and it was lovely. Paul had the breakfast but I stayed with our assistance dog in the flat. Paul loved the breakfast. The flat had a lovely lounge and the bed was cosy. I would definitely recommend...

The Helaina is a gem. It is beautifully decorated, well maintained and friendly. The view across the bay is great and the breakfast is cooked to order and is fantastic. We stayed at the Helaina as a base to tour Scarborough and the surrounding countryside and would certainly go back there

We stayed in one of the luxury apartments next door. We were put in the basement apartment which was very nice with lots of space and nice decor. There were a few problems though. The floor was sandy and the free wifi didn't work in the basement. One day we came back to the apartment to find a set of...

Booked the Helaina for 2 nights for my honeymoon after reading the reviews on trip advisor and can safely say it was a good decision. Me and my wife loved the room with the sea view which was clean and the bed was comfy. One slight criticism was that water was leaking through the frame off the windows but the...
