“Good B & B on the outskirts of town.”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Very friendly and helpful hosts, small but cozy and clean rooms, fresh breakfast - a short description of this place. A few minutes walking distance to the sea and the castle compensated is a good price. On street parking - paid for by the owner!

Room Tip: Rooms have a window or on a busy street, or at the very nice facilities. Seagulls make noise all nig...

An overnight stay in a lovely B&B. The hosts/owners couldn't have been more helpful, making my sisters and myself a big pot of tea on arrival, recommending a local restaurant and even booking our table for us. Clean, nicely decorated and homely and such a bargain! Lots of breakfast choices, from fresh fruit to a home cooked breakfast. We will definitely be back when returning to Scarborough.

Room Tip: Sea gulls noisy - be prepared!

Thank you for a lovely stay with you, albeit only one night on our way back from Scotland. Room very comfortable and breakfast really good. Gillian was very helpful in helping us to find somewhere to eat and we visited a really good Irish Pub with folk music.

We spend two nights, our hosts Gillian and John were wonderful, the breakfast were great and the bedrooms were to a high standard, we would certainly stay at the North Bay Guest House if we visit Scarborough in the near future. When we arrived we though the parking may have been a problem it turned out there were always spaces available.

I booked a ground floor room for myself and 90yr old Mum, and was really impressed that Gillian, the owner, went out of her way to move another guest for us; unfortunately, on arrival, they didn't seem to be expecting us, and the room had been given to the original guest, so we had to climb two steep flights of stairs (not good for my Mum) to the very small twin room (no wardrobe or chair/stool, and the shower room is tiny). It was very quiet - apart from the all-night seagulls (!) and the beds very comfy. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, parking is easy and plentiful (not sure what it would be like in high season), the breakfast was excellent (plenty of lovely fresh fruit and coffee) and - huge bonus and thumbs up - it was the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. It was fine for 2 nights - but not for any longer in that room.

Room Tip: The twin room is small but adequate for a short stay (extremely small shower room with no space to h...
