“Fantastic Cadbury-themed boutique B&B”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

I stayed here with my husband on New Year's eve, after having spent a lot of time looking for somewhere close to the town centre, clean, and preferably not a "traditional" b&b. This place was perfect!

On arrival we were greeted by Andy, the owner, a really friendly guy who showed us to our room. As we were only staying one night, we expected to be told check-out was to be 10am or similar. We were thrilled when Andy said we could have the room the following day as long as we needed it - an absolute godsend on new years day and really appreciated!

The room (8) was on the top floor and it was huge. Massive bad, very clear, tasteful cadbury-themed decor. The bathroom was small but very clean and well-equipped with a huge power shower. Towels were big and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. There were little treats like cadburys chocolate bars to go with the hot chocolate - all real nice touches.

Breakfast the next morning was fantastic - I'm a veggie so was offered a full english veggie breakfast which was really nice. My husband enjoyed his meaty alternative. There was also unlimited juice, coffee, tea, toast, croissants and pain au chocolate, cereal etc, and it was a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Perfect when you have a small hangover...

This is a lovely boutique-style b&b, with all those little touches that make a difference and a 5 star service. If we visit scarborough again we'll definitely come back here. We've stayed at some of the best boutique hotels in the UK and it was up there with the best of them.

As the hotel is new (opened in Feb) here are a couple of suggestions for Andy:
- Full length mirror needed in room 8. Ideally situated next to a plug socket.
- A proper (non travel) hairdryer in the room (will make the ladies happy!)

Thanks for a fabulous stay. :)

Room Tip: Room 8 - super kingsize bed and tonnes of space!

We stayed here in mid December, can't fault anything.

The Hotel has been set out really well and is in a nice part of Scarborough, within easy walking distance to the town centre, and the sea front.

The host Andrew, made us feel really welcome, did more than was asked, and provided a first class service, the breakfast is worth going for by itself

Our room was lovely, with a nice comforable bed, and all the right elements to make sure, it will not be our only stay at 17 West St

Looking forward to our next stay already

I like Scarborough, so I like this place.

Staying on business in lots of Hotels and Bed & Breakfast's I find this place memoriable for the tasteful deco, friendly staff, the local knowledge & contacts the host has plus ..... all their gadgets to support my time away.

Daily Parking Permits are provided although, parking can be a problem .... that's Scarborough !

Room Tip: You tend to get what you ask for ..... so ask, the customer service is brill !

We stayed here for one night for a regular visit to relatives in the area. We have been staying in Scarborough hotels for many years, several times per year, and can honestly say that of the twenty or so places we have frequented, this is the best.

Andrew, the proprietor, was incredibly friendly and helpful, and was always there if we needed anything. The breakfast was lovely, fab coffee and full english.

The room was huge, clean, warm, comfortable and basically feels brand new.

Location was great for us as is near to relatives, and is also 30 seconds walk to the Esplanade.

Free wi-fi fast and reliable.

Highly recommended!!!!

.
The young man who greeted us when were seeking a room had excellent customer care skills. he managed to get us a table at a very busy restaurant in the town and on my request left two sparkling clean wine glasses in our room . The rooms were clean, spacious with large comfortable bed, decorated simply but with good choice colour. breakfast was very good although had a short time to wait for coffee.
overall very enjoyable, this hotel wioll do well.
