Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the moment you enter the hotel you realise its something special. Leading up to arriving they had been professional and efficient on the phone and confirmed everything by letter or e mail. We booked three nights in a superior sea view room. The room had high ceilings, swaggs and tails and mahogany furniture, just what you want from a sea side holiday. Spotlessly clean and everything you could want, including a pair of binoculars on the coffee table in the large bay window with the two chairs. which was a lovely place to sit and just look at the view, which was ever changing. A fridge and electric radiators so you had full control of your heating. Breakfast was served in their downstairs dining room and was spotless and the breakfast truly amazing. everything you could want was available. The information board was a wall and had so much local knowledge posted. They do have two suites which we looked at one and that would be wonderful for a small group of family or friends. Revisiting Scarborough was like reliving my childhood and I had long since forgotten the sheer pleasure of visiting the English sea side. Finally we are both disabled I with heart failure and walking difficulties and my husband with braking both legs and one still in an external frame. I can honestly say they could not have been more accommodating Finally but not least free car parking on the road outside the hotel

We stayed for 2 nights. The was better than I expected. Spotlessly clean. You chose how warm you want the room. Top class breakfast. Beautiful lounge to sit and chill and read your paper if it’s not warm enough to sit outside. Beautiful view from all the rooms at the front of the house.

From been greeted at the door to the final check out the stay was first class. Cleanliness of the room fantastic, we had a small dog and young child and our room was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Facilities within the room were great also, smart TV, refrigerator. Breakfast was really nice also. The cooked breakfasts were lovely and lots of choice for extras such as pastries, fruit etc. Honestly we couldn't fault our stay and will he returning for sure.

Fabulous hotel with fabulous staff ,great location and views, breakfast was excellent and the dining room was beautifully laid out . There is nothing to fault in this hotel . Mark introduced himself and gave us a tour of the apartments which were stunning. Well worth a look at if travelling as a family or with friends. Nice to see owners taking an interest in their business and it shows here . Will definitely be back

The spacious room had an excellent sea view and a pair of binoculars to check out the ships. The bed was comfortable and there was ample lighting throughout. There was also a small fridge in the room. The breakfast was delicious. The staff were all very friendly.

A great location, at the south end of town, near the Italian garden. It's an easy walk into town but obviously, lots of steps to get down to the beach or gentle, accessible paths. Hotel was very cosy, with a welcoming fire, very grateful in January! Room was comfortable with a good variety of hot drinks in the room and an honesty bar in the lounge. Delicious breakfast with a large choice. Would highly recommend.

We originally booked for a family room, but our circumstances changed and we didn’t require the extra bed for our visit. the staff were very helpful with this situation and put us in an alternative room with a view of the coastline, Scarborough and the castle in the distance. The room was very quiet, spacious and warm too, there was a pair of binoculars in the room to use if you wanted. The bathroom was very clean and modern and we had plenty of towels and toiletries. The bed was comfortable and the extra pillows were very nice. The staff were very nice and knowledgeable about the area and facilities nearby, the front lounge area had plenty of sofas and it also had a great view of Scarborough via the large bay window. The weather wasn’t great but that didn’t put us off going out for a walk in the evening to watch the football game at the “Dickens”. We had breakfast the following morning with an allocated time and the choice on the menu was fantastic and catered for everyone. I would recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay there again, maybe sooner if there was any offers on.

We travel to Scarborough once or twice every year to visit family and every year finding a decent hotel seemed impossible. We've stayed at just about every hotel in town and on the south cliff and they were all either disappointing or downright awful. Then a couple of years ago we discovered Mansion House, hallelujah, it's definitely our favorite accommodation in Scarborough, by a mile. Comfortable rooms, nice linens and bathrooms, friendly hosts and very good breakfast. On this visit the owner showed us one of the apartments and it was gorgeous, if you are traveling as a family or a small group, they are well worth checking out. We will be back for certain. Highly Recommended
