“Lovely Location, Comfortable spacious Accomodation”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very spacious accommodation for our extended family, staying in Scarborough for a family wedding, held at the Ambassador Spa Hotel, a 10 minute walk from Holbeck House.
After an unfortunate mix up between the housekeeper and Manager of our arrival day, we settled into the accommodation very quickly, a real home from home. Again due to the contact number of the housekeeper not being answered, we did not receive the very best service which is why we could only give a four on the rating. Although towels were provided, there were not enough for the 6 adults staying, and again when contacting the housekeeper to request more, no extra towels were provided. We didn't have the best of weather so better instructions on the use of the heating would have been helpful.
We would still like to give this a good review as these matters can easily be addressed.
The rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed a family meal cooked in the lovely oven in a well equipped kitchen. Table mats for the dining table would be advisable to protect from the heat. The garden is charming and brilliant for families, oh to have had better weather to be able to have used the bbq, oh well maybe next time! A visitors book might be a nice touch. We love Scarborough the beaches are lovely, the castle and surrounding walks are to be recommended. The town is worth a shopping trip where the staff are very warm and friendly. A must for a Sunday roast is the Bryherstones Country Inn Cloughton. Hope this is a helpful review with positive feedback for the Manager as we would definitely like to stay at Holbeck House again.
