Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Mountview for a long weekend for my birthday. We chose the Mountview because of the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and it's also located in our favourite part of Scarborough near the Esplanade. We stayed for 3 nights which was a bargain due to a special 3 night deal. The owners are very friendly and the hotel has a home from home feel. We chose a double room with a shower which was very nice, spotlessly clean and warm and cosy, which was essential due to the unseasonal cold weather we had! The breakfast was delicious, we chose a full English every morning which was cooked to perfection! I would definitely recommend the Mountview and we will definitely be returning!

Lovely warm welcome, great breakfast with fantastic homemade marmalade and limitless toast. Clean warm comfortable family room with excellent shower. Pleasant walk to town through the cliff gardens and along the beach. Several restaurants within walking distance and the area is beautiful with established gardens and elegant buildings. My children asked to go back after the first day and we will be staying there whenever we are in Scarborough again.

Room Tip: If you dont like stairs, then ask for the basement rooms.

We stayed here for a week at the end of August and loved every minute. Nothing was to much trouble, it was like a home from home. There was always a smile and a warm welcome. Always a place to park close by.

Our room was very spacious, it was clean, bright and plenty of room for all the extra clothes you take when you're on holiday in the UK! The beds were comfortable and we were always warm enough.

Breakfast was very nice and various options were available if you didn't want to have a cooked breakfast every morning.

We walked in to town every day, its close to the lift for the beach and Spa, cliff gardens, putting green etc.

We would definitely stay again, its great value for money and we have already recommended The Mountview to family and friends.

Thank you so much once again for making our holiday so enjoyable!!!

Anne & Vincent
