St Michael's Guest House
Ranked #2 of 183 Scarborough B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This was our first trip to the Scarborough area and we chose to stay 2 nights at St Michael’s in early May, based the strength of the reviews and the reasonable price.

It is difficult to come up with something original to write having read several of the other reviews but I can certainly confirm St Michael’s lives up to its deserved reputation. The owners Ed and Jan have created a very clean, very comfortable, well-appointed and friendly guesthouse, serving delicious, high quality breakfasts and all that coupled with a genuine ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude – it is a winning formula.

St Michael’s is nicely located within a short walking distance of Peasholm Park, the seafront and several pubs and restaurants and all in all is an excellent base to explore the area. Robin Hood’s Bay is particularly nice and a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors railway is definitely recommended, if you like railways and steam trains of course!

There is not much more to add except a simple thank you both for your friendliness and hospitality and making our weekend away that much more enjoyable – shame it is was over so quickly.

We really enjoyed our stay in Scarborough, not least because of the warm welcome we received from Jan and Ed. Their guesthouse is spotless and they do everything they can to make you feel welcome. The breakfasts were cooked to order and were superb.

We got a fantastic welcome from Jan and Ed and soon found out the only problem was that Ed supported Peterborough but some one has to.
The hotel was spotless and Room 2 was a very nice size with a very roomy bathroom. All the nice touches are here and Jan even offered to run us to the station at the end of the stay as we were travelling by train.
If you are in Scarborough you must stay here. Faultless, oh and good luck to the Posh in the playoffs Ed.

Room Tip: Room 2 is an excellent twin room.

Just returned from our first visit to St Michael's guest house and we hope to return soon. Jan and Ed are a lovely couple, very helpful, and welcoming. The rooms are well laid out with comfy beds, en suite shower, tea making facilities, tea, coffee, biscuits etc. The breakfasts are huge (if you can eat a lot) or smaller if you are watching the waistline. Jan and Ed do their best to provide as much or as little as you want. Cereals, yoghurts, fruit, full english with all the trimmings, toast, tea or coffee, believe me it's worth stopping at St Michael's for the breakfasts alone, add Jan and Ed's hospitality and you couldn't ask for more. A previous award winner and we could see why.

Just returned from our first visit to Ed and Jan's place and will be returning! They were so helpful in recommending places to visit and eat, all of which were good. Stayed in the family en suite which was bright, spotlessly clean and airy. We all slept well each night. The breakfasts were fantastic! Thank you so much for the little Easter Egg for Evie, she wanted to stay longer - and so did we! Danny, Fiona & Evie

We received a lovely warm welcome when we arrived; a cup of tea and bags taken to our room. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated. Amazing breakfast with as much or as little of whatever you wanted. Jan and Ed were so friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back! Would definitely recommend.
