After having unpleasant experiences with B & B's in the North Bay @ Scarborough we checked the reviews of fellow travellers on tripadvisor, and based on the overall positive reviews and ignoring the obviously biased negative reviews, decided to give the Leeway a chance. We where not disappointed, we managed to get the last room available No7 @ the top and no sea view. The room was large, very clean, a very comfortable bed. Alan & Judes attention to small details is outstanding and on a par with 5 * hotels we have stayed in throughout the world.
B & B's AND OTHER HOTELS IN SCARBOROUGH COULD DO TO VISIT AND FIND OUT HOW MODERN B & B's CAN BE RUN SUCCESSFULLY AND OFFER EXCELLENT QUALITY SERVICE.
Minor criticisms, rooms only single glazed and can be noisy, Alan explained as a listed building to replace the windows would be an enormous cost, but they are looking to install secondary double glazing to combat the noise levels (ROYAL HOTEL TAKE NOTE). Bathroom could have done with a hook inside the door for robes, clothes etc, and the cracked plastic light lens above the shower should be changed for safety reasons ( sorry Alan forgot to mention when we left).
We will definitely try to book again,(IF WE CAN GET IN ????) and would unreservedly recommend for a comfortable, pleasant & pleasurable stay.
Even at breakfast the attention to detail was to be applauded, proper napkins, choices of individual fruit dishes excellent quality and choice of main breakfast as well.

Room Tip: limited parking, higher rooms with steep stairs, rooms @ the moment can be noisy, but to be sorted s...

Stayed at the Leeway Hotel for two nights, 19th and 20th August, to celebrate my birthday. The Leeway hotel is first class. Fantastic location and we were lucky enough to be able to book a room with a sea view (room 3). The room was absolutely spotless, with nice little touches, chocolate, biscuits, bottled water, tissues etc. The linen was lovely and fresh and of good quality. The breakfast served at the Leeway was very good. All cooked fresh to order and with a good choice. There is a very welcoming bar should you wish to have a night cap, which we did. The hosts are very nice and nothing appears too much trouble for them, they even supplied us with an extra parking permit (free of charge) so we could stay until later in the day on the day of our departure. All the other hotels we have stayed in in Scarborough charge you for these.

We always come to Scarborough at this time of year and have stayed in various hotels over the years but the Leeway is one of the top ones we have stayed in and we would certainly return.

We stayed at the Leeway Hotel for one night. It is in a lovely location overlooking the sea. The room was beautiful and modern. The additional room extras such as shower gel and bottled water were very nice and well appreciated. Breakfast was perfect and the owners were friendly and helpful in answering a question we had regarding parking in Scarborough. Our stay at the Leeway Hotel was brilliant. Thank you very much.

We had a very pleasant week at The Leeway from 13th to 20th August. Alan and Jude were perfect hosts and could not have done more to make our stay memorable. Our room was spotless and well-appointed, the breakfasts excellent and we particularly enjoyed our evening chats in the bar over a couple of drinks.

The hotel is ideally situated overlooking the sea and only a short walk from the beach, town centre and amenities. We would not hesitate in recommending The Leeway to anyone intending to visit Scarborough and indeed have already done so.

Thanks again and look forward to the next time.

Situated on the cliff top drive The Leeway is as good a traditional bed and breakfast hotel as we have ever stayed in. Easy parking onsite, or on the drive with supplied permit, 10 minute walk from a bustling town centre and the buzzing seafront harbour. The room was spotlessly clean, comfy bed with quality pillows, and the very rarely seen these days bedside clock. The provision of 2 chairs to sit on was most welcome. Nice powerful shower with individual heating( no loss of hot water if other rooms are showering) and the cooked to order breakfast in the delightful breakfast room was superb. The hosts were warm and welcoming and we cannot recommend The Leeway highly enough

We stayed at The Leeway from the 7/8 to the 10/08 2012 and can find no faults with this perfectly situated B&B. We were met with a cup of tea on arrival by Alan & Jude and then shown to our room at the top of the building. A recent reviewer complained that they did not get a sea view, with all due respect that's why they invented front doors, get out there!
The views from the front of the property are beautiful, and there are benches positioned to best enjoy them. The sound of the sea on the beach is one of my favourite sounds. Breakfast was fresh, plentiful and well cooked. Room was clean and well presented.

It's a B&B, if you expect nothing more then you wont be disappointed. If were to visit Scarborough again then this is where I would stay.

Room Tip: If you can get a sea view then do as it's a great sight when you first wake.
