Just spent 2 nights with my wife staying at the windmill in Scarborough, the welcome was great as was the room, not in the windmill itself but on the veranda. Breakfast was really nice and the service was very good, we will be going back again next year so I can't say any more than that

My girlfriend and I have just spent a wonderful weekend staying at the windmill. We had the top part of the windmill offering amazing views across the whole of scarborough.

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
