Stayed here 27/1 - 29/1 for a weekend break to celebrate my Wife's upcoming birthday. We usually prefer to stay up on the North Cliff when in Scarborough but our usual haunts weren't open at this time of year. So we opted for the Almar with it being close to all amenities on the North side and I've got to...

My father stayed at The Almar for two nights from 31st Dec - 2nd January. His stay at The Almar was absolutely fantastic. He suffers from a number of medical conditions and the staff (Jamie) were incredibly helpful beyond what customer service you would normally expect at a hotel. He stayed and looked after my father on NYE night and...

Stayed in room 4, rear aspect. The room was clean with decent quality bedding and towels. The en-suite bathroom was a little compact but perfectly functional. The T.V. worked well as did the heating. The breakfast was really good (far better than I've experienced in other hotels). There is a bar in the dining room where you can use a...

Whilst rooms are not large ( you only sleep in them) they are spotless with comfortable beds and en-suite, tv and tea/coffee. Free parking outside with on road permit. 10 minute...

We stay at the Almar every year when we visit Scarborough. Jamie always treats you like a friend and does a very good job of running a tight ship with clean rooms and very good breakfasts. As long as the Almar is available we will be returning every year. Why go elsewhere when you have everything you need within walking...

We go to the Almar every year and if anything it just gets better. The rooms are clean, spacious and Jamie is a wonderful host. The breakfast is always hot and plentiful and the added bonus of a bar to sit in at night means we will be coming back here for many more years .
