Mansion House Scarborough
Ranked #16 of 183 Scarborough B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 February 2013

All the positive comments below are endorsed. The welcome, all the staff, the lovely lounge +daily papers & honesty bar, the location away from but within walking distance of town centre & N Bay. We had the quiet twin to the back.

The bathroom was lovely (though I agree re power shower/better temp regulation would come up to rest of spec).

Both breakfasts were of a v high standard (maybe the toast should arrive with the cooked food as it was cold by the time it was needed, or a choice of now or with food could be offered): the second morning we chose scrambled egg & salmon & were blown away by the amount & quality of salmon.

My only reservations (& I write as someone with sleeping difficulties) were the lack of sound proofing between rooms (we could hear conversations, heavy footfall & snoring from nearby rooms, above? below? not sure) and the a) common blight of light/white curtains b) hanging of curtains on poles that leave wide gaps between curtain & wall/ceiling so that alot of light leakage occurs in addition. I always say that those who are blessed with easy sleep would sleep with darker, more well-fitting curtains - those who have sleep issues [apparently about 25% of the adult population] should be able to hope for a little consideration for a debilitating problem that can spoil a break away. The curtains had light blocking linings (hurrah!) but were hung too far from the window for that to be more than a gesture in the right direction. My husband would have woken with the dawn too were I not armed with emergency black out 'equipment' every time we travel.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and booked the The Mansion House for a short romantic break ...we were not disappointed :)
Great hotel with lovely friendly staff, from the moment we arrived we were impressed, a complimentary box of chocolates in our room and a welcome drink when we entered the loinge after unpacking. A lovely touch was the anniversary card signed by all the staff on our breakfast table on the first morning followed by complimentary 'champagne & orange juice' at breakfast on Sunday morning.
Many thanks to all the staff we loved our stay with you.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review and also for allowing us to share this with other guests.

our party of four spent two great nights here, it was well presented, clean and very comfortable
The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were superb, cannot find any fault which made a very wet, windy and snow bound break an enjoyable visit

This was a last minute trip so did not arrive till 9:30pm although we received a friendly greeting and shown to our room - the room was a good size with some nice touches such as binoculars, flowers, flat screan tv and good selection of teas and coffees. Slightly suprised to see left over hairs around the bath - more attention to cleaning required and not too impressed with the shower as low pressure and dodgy temperature.
The location however was fantastic , walked to a lovely Italian restaurant and when back at the hotel relaxed with a hot chocolate and DVD . We were greeted in the morning by the most beautiful sunrise over the sea through the large window and had a lovely breakfast - great selection of hot and cold foods. Checked out at 11 am which was nice as did not feel rushed. Would stay here again.

We have just returned from our first trip to the Mansion House. We stayed in a twin room to the rear of the building which was nicely furnished and immaculately clean. There was the usuall coffee/tea making facility and a nice complimentary box of chocolates. A complimentary glass of wine was another nice touch. The breakfast was excellent and equalled the choice on the cruise ships we have been on recently; excellent food - nicely presented. and pleasant staff. We really enjoyed our stay in a beautiful building with lovely furnishings. The Mansion House lives up to its 5* rating and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a room with a sea view.

We were staying in the off-tourist season but the service was no less for that! Very friendly, welcoming staff who were happy to help. Big room, and we were able to use an adjoining room also, very useful for luggage, and a spare bathroom. The breakfast had plenty of choice and plenty to eat, and the hot food was cooked perfectly. Well situated, with sea views, and not very far from anywhere. All in all a fantastic place, would recommend 100%.

Yet another wonderful stay at Mansion House. We arrived far earlier than we initially said but the room was ready and once the unpacking was completed we received a complimentary drink in the lounge. Breakfast was superb and I was very pleased to find a birthday card waiting for me at the breakfast table! Parking is on the road outside and is restriction free, with plenty of spaces. A pleasant 10 minute walk to the shopping area. For our whole stay the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will return!

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are spacious and with a wonderful view.
