Our room as a bit small for a double but was advertised as such. Decor a little dated but in good condition.
Owners were great hosts, free cakes in the room on arrival, everything you needed for a good stay.

If I had to be picky, the tele was very small... but that is about it, otherwise spot on
Comfortable bed, large room, good shower facilities and in a decent location. The staff were brilliant and the breakfast was amazing 10/10!

breakfast only available between 8 and 9 am, bacon and sausage were both dry and overcooked, nothing was very hot, hash brown was soft and soggy, for £35 ph i expected more, anything more that a pkt of biscuits eaten in the bedroom could incur a fine of £50 pp, it fealt like a threat.We would not stay here again.
very comfortable and clean, free wi-fi excellent,

Can't think of anything we didn't like.
Comfortable beds, good quality bed linen and towels, a tastefully decorated and well appointed room, a quiet location, free wi-fi, and an excellent breakfast - but what made our visit even more special was the genuinely hospitable welcome from the owners, and the way they went the extra mile to make sure our 3-night stay was 100% perfect. Our gluten-free request was accommodated without any fuss, and even the daily cake/chocolate treats reflected that personal attention to detail. The choice at breakfast was as good as any 5-star hotel, and our Full English was cooked to perfection each day, along with cereals, fresh fruit, home-made jam, marmalade, yoghurt etc. Locationwise, it's ten minutes walk from the sea front, ten minutes walk from the town centre and railway station, and maybe five minutes walk from Peasholme Park, but if you can allow for those distances and build them into your leisure schedule, it's the perfect base for a holiday. We wouldn't even think of looking for anywhere different to stay next time we visit Scarborough. The saying "we arrived as customers but left as friends" is a terrible cliche, but after reading the reviews on here we agree that John and Joy are the perfect hosts

Nothing to say here!
From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome, and delicious aromas of home-baking wafting from the kitchen added to the feeling of home from home. (Delights of which we were to enjoy during our stay!) Breakfasts were superb, as were the helpful tips as to where to dine, walk and investigate! Joy and John were the perfect hosts, lovely people who were a delight to meet.

Joy and John owners very warm and genuine nothing any trouble. Room was very clean and comfortable with home made cakes as a nice touch daily.Breakfast was absolutely wonderful everything you could ask for on the choices and more. Shops and sea front only 5 mins walk away, free parking right outside so no worry. Brilliant break for 4days will definitely use again.

2 September 2014
Excellent proprietors (John & Joy), who couldn't do enough for you. All food homemade, jams, ketchup, bread, yogurts etc also a homemade bun/biscuit put in your room daily, little things like this give you a feeling of luxury. Lovely decorated room. Breakfasts were spot on. Quality fittings. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Am trying to juggle my working days so I can go back ASAP.

That we had to go home
Myself and my husband wanted a couple of days away so booked this B&B last minute. We arrived early and our room was ready for us, parking was great just outside, room was big with everything we needed. The breakfast was out of this world!! Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks for a great time x

Nothing to dislike, but we were impressed with the little extras,e.g.cricket ground information, local bus timetables, and good places to dine. This added to a good short break holiday.
