The Helaina
Ranked #15 of 184 Scarborough B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2013

The Helaina is a gem. It is beautifully decorated, well maintained and friendly. The view across the bay is great and the breakfast is cooked to order and is fantastic. We stayed at the Helaina as a base to tour Scarborough and the surrounding countryside and would certainly go back there

Outstanding customer service was only exceeded by the perfectly made breakfast. A very clean and tastefully furnished hotel. Excellent position close to all amenities. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room

We stayed in one of the luxury apartments next door. We were put in the basement apartment which was very nice with lots of space and nice decor. There were a few problems though. The floor was sandy and the free wifi didn't work in the basement. One day we came back to the apartment to find a set of keys in the door, supposedly from the cleaner. Also both mornings we were woken up before 9am by a workman at the bedroom window scraping right next to the bed. It was a disappointing stay. Not the luxury we had expected.

Excellent. Highly recommend. Rooms are very good and the de-luxe rooms gave delightful sea & coast reviews.We were treated very well by Jill & Tom & staff. Breakfasts are well cooked and well served. Good parking. Have stayed all over Scarborough, none better than Helaina!

Lovely , family run hotel. Spotlessly clean, beautiful food and exceptional staff. A little gem. Cosy room . Bit of history about the building which was a nice touch. Beautiful stain glass window . Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend.

Booked the Helaina for 2 nights for my honeymoon after reading the reviews on trip advisor and can safely say it was a good decision. Me and my wife loved the room with the sea view which was clean and the bed was comfy. One slight criticism was that water was leaking through the frame off the windows but the weather was really bad. On the Monday we was told by one of the staff that this was a ongoing problem with all the front rooms facing the sea and will be looking to rectify the situation ASAP. But besides that everything else was excellent especially the breakfast will be looking forward to coming here again !

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. The room was very modern and clean. The location was perfect with lovely views of the beach. The breakfasts though were simply perfect!! We will definitely be going back!
