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.

What a lovely place to stay. Morna & Ian are both very friendly and welcoming, the breakfasts were very good, the room was comfy and well designed. The four-poster bed was a nice change from the norm. Only a short walk from everywhere we wanted to go in town.

We came and stayed here before - what could be almost 10 years ago, and it was nice to see the same lovely couple still running the place, and old fashioned style listed building. Within there's a good sized communal lounge with a mix of chairs and sofas. I found myself using this room to use my laptop, and while in there, an old book caught my eye all about the Germany Navy in WW1 shelling the town - I had no idea. The breakfasts were just as nice as I remember them - no cheap nasty bacon found here. Quality ingredients, cooked to perfection. The man, Ian did all the cooking, and Morna did the serving. As we were the only one's there during a quiet time, she had more time than usual to chat with us. As others have said, very nice and friendly. I think it's a difficult balance to strike when running a place like this, especially when few guests are in, to be overly chatty and in your face, vs holding back and an awkward silence - Morna's way of dealing with this, was to sit across the same room, reading something with a quiet distant radio. It might sound simple, but it worked great. Aside from the cooked English, is a variety of cereals, and freshly chopped up fruit, yogurts, toast and jam etc. All fresh - clearly this is where the extra bit of money goes that the larger places don't bother with. The hotel is very close to the castle on the hill, and although it's very close to the seafront/town centre, does require a bit of an uphill walk on the final leg. Another thing I was happy to see the back of, was all the covid restrictions. There was still an old notice from days gone by, but mostly things seemed to be back to normal. I certainly hope to visit the place again, if and when we next plan to stay over in Scarborough.

B and Bs don't get much better than this! Tucked away in Scarborough Old Town, Tall Storeys is a beautiful old building that's cosy, welcoming, quirky and relaxing. You can feel the TLC the owners give it. Our room had a four poster bed and an amazing view over Scarborough South Bay, all amenities and even dressing gowns! The owners are lovely too. Breakfast is made to be special, with your own table of cereals, jams etc. When ordering our host sat down and was so attentive. It's a very special place. We would highly recommend.

As the website says Tall Storeys is a charming Grade II listed Regency town house in Scarborough. It is just above Scarborough harbour and our room had lovely views over the harbour and along the coast to Filey. The rooms where immaculately clean and Ian and Morna could not have been more helpful. We stayed here with friends for 2 nights whilst walking the Cleveland Way and were all agreed that the breakfast was by far the best that we had during our trip. An excellent place to stay if you are visiting Scarborough.

Fabulous little hotel nestled in the old town of Scarborough. Fabulous hosts with a stunning breakfast, room was (room 1) as cosy as they come with a nice clean toilet and shower. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

An excellent place to stay very friendly and the breakfast was exceptional, your own fruit and cereals on the table with yogurt as well as a great cooked breakfast which the food was sourced from the local butcher and tasted great just the start you wanted for the rest of the day, Very helpfull and genuine people who wanted to make your stay enjoyable and they could not do enough for you asking if you wanted anything else and also having a conversation with you in the morning, not just giving you breakfast and rushing you out so they could clear up breakfast plates and set up for the next day. We had a great stay very relaxing and a excellent experience ,when we visit Scarborough again we will book again!

We booked this guest house to celebrate my partner's birthday in a romantic setting. We received a very warm welcome from Morna and Ian and were shown to our room 5 which has a view of the castle. The ensuite is compact but perfectly adequate with a good shower. The four poster bed has a very comfortable mattress. The breakfasts were very good with choice of cereals and excellent full Yorkshire breakfast cooked by Ian. The common sitting room is very inviting and has lovely view of the harbour. It is a great location for touring the lovely countryside and quaint seaside towns.
