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
