“Quiet, but also very close to everything.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

We stayed in this guest house November 2013, Double ensuite.
When we arrived we was welcomed by a lovely lady and her daughter who made us feel very welcome. We didnt spend much time at the guest house just to get our head down really. Found the room a little smaller than expected and the bathroom was smaller than we have experienced in other guest houses, The only real down side was the shower not very powerful and the curtain rail was coming away. Linen and towels were fresh and overall was pretty good. Breakfast was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We would visit again. But would book a bigger room and one with a sea view next time.

Thanks Carol for another great stay. You always make us feel most welcome and your breakfasts are a great way to start the day.
The Derwent is a great family run guest house overlooking the sea and five minutes walk from the town centre, the location is ideal being close to all amenities, but away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the town centre.
The welcome is always friendly, the rooms are clean and cosy and the breakfast is a real Yorkshire serving.
Thanks again Carol, see you after Christmas for Holly's birthday.

We recently took a little weekend away to this fantastic B&B. Myself and my partner Leonard were looking for somewhere with a sea view and somewhere close to the town centre. We were greeted by Keith and Carole upon arrival and have to say they are the most lovely hosts.

My partner Leonard is 90 and throughout our stay our lovely hosts made sure that we were happy and anything that we needed was taken care of. We loved our room, our sea view and the honesty bar when we got peckish in the night. The breakfast was great and anything that we need we got.

The hotel is in a great position and every morning we sat out front, read our morning papers and took in the fresh sea air. We have booked in again already and look forward to seeing Keith, Carole and their lovely children again.

Room Tip: Request a sea view.

Been to the derwent house hotel 2 times with my partner James and all I can say is this guest house is fantastic ! First visit we got lost on our journey and didn't show up till nearly 10pm at night ! Carole the lovely host didn't mind at all wasn't fazed at all by our late arrival !

We stayed in a small room on the first floor with a bathroom next door - clean, warm lovely little room and on our second visit it had been given a refurb making it even nicer !

Second visit we arrived and were greeted and remembered by Carole giving the experience a lovely personal touch !

The hosts of this B and B go beyond the call of duty providing a lovely breakfast ! And even a tuck shop full of tasty treats / drinks.

Wifi is fast and lovely seating area outside !

Absolute bargain for the price !

Ignore any negativity people obviously expect far too much for the price they are paying !

Perfect ! Will be back soon

Ben & James

Second stay at Derwent House, rooms clean and tidy and quite large, plenty of room to move.We stayed in room 8 last year with the wonderful views but this time we were in room 11 but was still lovely.Breakfast was very good, nothing was a problem to the owners.Very helpful.Very well situated for the town and north and south bay. We have stayed in Scarborough several times and the Derwent House Hotel is one of the best we have stayed at.Will go back again.
