  • Hi Paula and Tony, we have looked at your lovely property but it's not clear what 'partially refundable' actually means, if we needed to cancel due to circumstances beyond our control? Very many thanks, Linda

    Hi Linda, thanks for your kind words. We are quite new to and don’t really understand why they call it that. We are happy to refund deposits up to 14 days prior to arrival. All the best, Tony

  • The price shown says £255 for 2 people but when tried to reserve it doubled in price so is this £255 price per person? If so this is not stated.

    When were you trying to book for and which room? This site only operates on a room price so we will have to check this

Paula & Tony Bates

Hotel Ellenby occupies a premium place on Scarborough’s dramatic cliffs, overlooking the stunning North Bay and offering stylish accommodation within easy reach of the beach, cafes and prime attractions. These include an open air theatre, castle, cricket ground, Sea Life Sanctuary and pretty Peasholm Park, voted one of the UK’s top 10. The main town centre shops, restaurants, harbour and many other attractions lie within a gentle 15 minute stroll. The Ellenby was built in 1943 and is a Grade Two listed building, but has been recently and sympathetically upgraded by new owners Paula & Tony. There are 10 en suite guest bedrooms, all tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and with tea and coffee making facilities and beautiful views of either the sea or the gardens. The hotel provides a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere for guests aged from 10 upwards, together with hearty breakfasts making the most of top quality local produce and there is a guest lounge and honesty bar available. Please note: There is no lift in the property.

Paula & Tony love welcoming guests to Hotel Ellenby and sharing this wonderful, old building and the absolutely stunning views of Scarborough's North Bay and the Castle. They are also eager to pass on their recommendations for places to eat out or visit.

Scarborough itself has much to offer by way of entertainment, activities from golf to sailing and a wide range of restaurants. It is also a great spot from which to explore the Heritage Coast to Whitby and beyond, the spectacular North York Moors and the historic city of York.
