We stayed in the Windmill for the second time this February. It is under new ownership and the new owners have taken it to another level. We stayed in room 7 and it was thoroughly enjoyable.We will be back again next year

The Windmill is situated in a residential area roughly central to both North Beach and South Beach. It is accessed by a narrow road (Mill Road) and at the end it opens to a private enclosed brick paved car park. There are also several small cottages that are part of the windmill complex. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by...

Great little place and very centrally located. The owners were just great and so very helpful. We stayed in the upper balcony in the main windmill which was just lovely (besides the seagulls making their presence know, but it is expected!) some people may struggle with the narrow stairs leading to the apartment, but once you get there its fantastic,...

My wife Karen had chose this great B&B Windmill Apartment that was brilliant, lovely building, everything you need and more for your stay, self contained, but with great owners Nicola & Andy on hand should you need them, couldn't be more accommodating on our visit to see my inlaws memorial bench in Peasholm Park. Will definitely visit again.

We recently stayed at the windmill in the 3 bedroom cottage. It was large, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean! The hairdryer and iron and ironing board were welcome touches. The owners were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The windmill is close enough to walk into town and set in a private courtyard which was mostly...

Arrived in a fairly average suburb with betting shops and pound shops wondering whether our relaxing weekend was going to be what we had imagined. Drove up a back alley, through a gate into a beautiful brick paved courtyard with pretty cottages and a beautifully restored windmill. Our delight did not stop there. We had booked a 2 bedroom cottage...

Decided to stay here on a weekend away in Scarborough with my partner as thought it was a bit quirky. Couldn't decide on whether to stay in the four poster rooms or in the windmill itself but decided on the four poster room. The room was lovely decorated and very clean and homely and cosy. The bathroom was lovely too...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Windmill, just a 5 minute walk from the bustling town centre of Scarborough, its busy railway station and close to the iconic Stephen Joseph Theatre which hosts regular plays and concerts throughout the year. The Windmill, is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and is the last remaining windmill in Scarborough offering quality self-catering and bed & breakfast accommodation with limited free parking. We have three king-size four poster rooms overlooking the courtyard and 2 lovely Suites in The Windmill itself; the Balcony Suite, for adventurous adults with a head for heights, and the lower Windmill Madeline Suite which is more spacious. We also have two single storey cottages in the courtyard, one cater for up to 5 people and the other for 4 people. So the choice is yours - you can cater for yourselves or be catered for with a hearty breakfast in The Windmill. ... more   less
