Wonderful breakfasts and the owners are helpful and accommodating. A great place for anyone on their own as there is no single room supplement and to have a clean and bright single room with all one needs for a great holiday for just £32 per night is amazing value. The flight of stairs was no problem to this almost fit visitor! The location is excellent, near to all amenities with good flat access to the cliff lift to the sea front. Great to be able to get a selection of bar meals too if one doesn't wish to go out in the evening. This place is well worth a visit and you'll find yourself going back again and again.

Yes, the room was very small, but it was spotlessly clean. The proprietors were friendly and the breakfast superb. At £32 per person, our stay was excellent value.

As for the seagulls, they were noisy, but that's hardly the fault of the proprietors. I wore earplugs, which solved the problem. Alternatively, you could spend a small fortune on a hotel room that has air con so you can keep the windows shut!

Car parking wasn't a problem, even on a bank holiday weekend; it may not be possible to park right outside the B and B, but you'll be able to find a space on the next street. A parking permit is available from Derek, the proprietor.

I have stayed in this bed and breakfast for a few times. The service has always been excellent and the breakfast has always been amazing. They have unbeatable fruit salad and cooked breakfast! I like the owners as they are genuine and honest people.

We booked this b&b for the location -half way between Olivers Mount and Scarborough and for that reason it was great. However, I wouldn't suggest staying here if you want to be able to move around the room, it was tiny! I think that we had the smallest room in the building, but it shouldn't have been classed as a double. Just because you can fit a double bed in it, doesn't mean there should be one there! it's definitely more suited to being a single.The wardrobe doesn't open properly because it hits the corner of the bed and it's a squeeze if both of you are standing up on the same side of the bed.
No fan provided in the middle of a heatwave, so we had to leave our window open all day and night -not very secure. The mattress was ok, but because we had to keep the window open, we were woken up regularly by seagulls!

In the bathroom / cupboard, there are about 3 inches between your knees and the shower door when you're sitting down and the basin is in the bedroom. The door to the bathroom really belongs on a room that needs less privacy. The main issue with the shower was the lack of space and the water temperature was fine, then presumably someone in the building turned on a tap and it was scalding/freezing. This wouldn't be an issue, but due to the lack of space, there was no-where to escape to when you wanted to get away from being scalded!

The decor of the room was dated, the wallpaper was beginning to peel and the carpet was fraying and dirty in places. Also, my towel had a yellow stain on it. This b&b needs a real overhaul and by a professional - it had a real 'botched job' feel to it.

The breakfast was good - fruit salad, cereals and a choice of 6 locally produced items from a cooked breakfast menu. Nice coffee and the lady serving was friendly and polite.

Parking was on street with a permit given to us by the proprietor, once we found a space, we stayed in it and walked everywhere (nothing was far away, and it's a nice walk into Scarborough).

I'm not sure what the other rooms are like, so I don't want to put anyone off as it is a cheaply priced b&b in a good location, but avoid room 2 and take your own fan if it's hot!

Room Tip: If you are travelling alone, room 2 will be ok, but it is not good for 2 people, it's very pokey...

Lovely hotel, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and excellent breakfast. Derrick (proprietor) was very nice and accomodating, ringing for our taxi and taking our photos. The breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit salad, cereal and full english. Menu cards had to be filled in the night before, no problem for us. Would highly recommend this hotel, the only down side was that we only stayed one night, we will be back
