“"Fantastic B&B" Cosy &Warm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

The Kingsize room( rm1) was nicely decorated and very cosy, clean en suite shower,Full English break-fast was amazing! everything cooked to perfection, and all grilled not fried, good choice of cereals, and fresh fruit eg:- mellon, grapefruit, bananna, Nothing was to much trouble for the owners very considerate and welcoming, 10 mins walk through a small park to the town center and beach, the road to the beach is flat so no hills, if there is no parking in the hotel car park the owner has a permit for guests who have to park on the road, will be staying there again and would highly recommend had a lovely, relaxing 4 nights, Many Thanks Ashburton House

Room Tip: Room 1 kingsize, and room 2 double 1st floor were at the back of the hotel and quieter, the four pos...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Just returned from two nights at this hotel. Booked the superior room and stayed in room 11. Here are the negatives and positives:

First night did not sleep a wink - problem with the toilet which resulted in it filling up every 6 minutes (yes we timed it) - resulting in the whoosh of the incoming water followed by a bang when the cistern had filled. Highly frustrating to say the least.
Pillows on the bed badly in need of replacing - filling separated resulting in flat areas. Not the best sheets - ought to invest in better quality bedding and duvets.
En-suite small (but adequate), shower mediocre (but used to a power shower), water filled shower tray whilst showering so ended up standing in 2-3 inches of water throughout shower.


Positives:
Lovely spacious spotless room with small lounge area, free wifi, television and wall mounted fire.
Friendly accommodating owners who sorted toilet problem out next day resulting in a better second night's sleep.
Good area, short walk to seafront, shops, spa.
Fantastic breakfast!!!!

Thought in view of not sleeping first night due to their toilet problem might have been offered a goodwill small discount on price but no - had to pay full cost. The problems encountered have reduced my rating for a very clean bed and breakfast. Sort these problems out and the rating will increase.

However - despite these small problems -would I stay here again? Absolutely!!!

Room Tip: Two superior rooms advertised. We were allocated the ground floor one next to the outside door and a...

A good B&B located about 10 mins walk from the harbour. Has a small private car park for enough rooms. Well presented rooms, lovely breakfast and when we went in January very good value. £37-50 for two including breakfast , which was excellent with plenty of choice.

Wet cold January weekend. Great service from the owners and a huge breakfast in the morning.
Near to seafront and town. Parking was a plus if a little cramped when full. Clean and tidy.
Wallpaper a bit loud in bedroom.
Would visit again.

Although we did not like Scarborough itself we found this B&B to be excellent. A very clean room and large bathroom that were both well heated made our 1 night stay more than comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the location, although a short walk from the main sea front area, for us was ideal as we were happy to be out of the main thoroughfare. The wifi was very quick so I was able to get some work done and the hosts were friendly and professional. We appreciated the book of recommendations in the room. It guided us to an excellent restaurant. Only slight issue was that after a 10 min shower at 8pm we ran out of hot water.

Stayed at this hotel now for the 3rd time end of Nov and still the same top quality B&B as the first visit ..Just cannot fault he place simple as that !!!! rooms spotless and well furnished which have you everything you need. Stayed in the 4 poster room on my first 2 visits which is absolutely fantastic ..got a 2 seater couch in corner which makes it so cosy and to chill out watching tv and even got wall mounted fire if you feeling chilly and even got a remote for it !!! My 3rd visit as my sister and her boy friend came with us so i let them stop in that room as it was there first visit ...and they loved it !!! The breakfasts are are delightful ....Fresh fruit,cereal,yogurts and then you got the full monty to get down ! or try the kippers or salmon !!! .This place cannot be beaten for value for money its a little gem of a place with a pub 2 doors down on the left which get great live bands on a saturday night and a real ale pub 2 doors up on the right what more could you ask for !!! Also just a 6 to 7 min stroll to the seafront. Will be booking my 4th visit after crimbo and cant wait to return again !!!!!
