Reviewed 15 August 2017

We stayed in this B&B in July, it calls itself a hotel like everybody else in the area. I found it very humorous when they promoted themselves to hotels. Anyway, the room was clean and comfortable. We paid for the more expensive room, but still have to pay more for breakfast. I didn't see any facilities in the house, no lifts and the small reception was not manned at all. It is perfectly fine for a B&B though, but not a hotel. The breakfast and service was very good, a good start of the day. It is a very good B&B if you don't mind to pay more.

Room Tip: Make sure you asked for first floor or ground floor room if you don't want to climb too many ste...

First stayed here during July and then again in August. Spotlessly clean rooms and added little touches in the superior rooms mean a very comfortable stay. Lovely staff/family make it even more comfortable. Happy to recommend.

Stayed for seven days & enjoyed every moment of our stay here. Jo, Mum & Dad were just great, very friendly, very good breakfast, nothing to much trouble & rooms were spotless. Individual bottle of wine each day, fridge & fresh water plus complementary biscuits & even a cake on the first day. Weather was not good during our stay so nice to have somewhere to come back to & relax. Great shame that they will be closing soon as a Guest House but wonderful to know that it will re-open as Willows Lull. Scarborough you are so lucky to have this Charity which I quote from there web site as follows.
" Willows Lull aim to relieve the needs of children and young people living within the Yorkshire coast, east coast and Ryedale area who are disabled, have special needs or life-limiting conditions and their parents/carers, by the provision of respite, recreational and leisure time activities in order to address their needs."

Very clean and tidy. I wouldn't recommend breakfast it was very poor. Cooked full English was 1 poor quality tough sausage and anaemic slice of bacon a hash. Town 1/2 a tomato and an overlooked poached egg.. coffee was good. Hosts were very helpful

Small room and shower area but enough for a two night stay. The room was very clean and the dining area was lovely. Breakfast was extra but really good, staff were lovely and well organised. The hotel is near the beach and parks so well located.

Room Tip: The front rooms would see some sea. Rooms were quiet, a little street noise.
