Janet and john run a fantastic place and made us feel so welcome from the first minute we stepped inside. . The place is very clean and our double room was a good size with a superb on-suit shower. Even writing this review makes me want to go back. . Central location between both bays, quiet relaxing with suberb views and a stange overall quirkyness which seems to reflect the hosts superbly. .

stayed three nights over the bank holiday weekend,a lovely building full of character.Rooms clean and decorated nicely, bathroom very modern with underfloor heating and plenty of hot water. Breakfasts cooked to order , and the best I have ever had. the view from the French doors of the bedroom over the north bay are stunning.
The only bad bit, was leaving.

Room Tip: room 1 balcony doors on to the terrace.

stayed here for 1 night on a saturday room 8
lucky that they had room for us for 1 night , has parking at front of hotel , nice as its pricey in scarborough , looks strange from a distance a white castle ! but you grow to love it .
great views of north bay from room 8 , decent size room . tv ,shower etc all ok
breakfast very adequate you get what you order ! you have a choice of food !!
nice terrace to look down on north bay .
anne boleyn grave is 50 meteres away in a grave yard, 3 mins walk downhill to sea front maybe 8 mins walk up back to hotel .

We have Thoroughly enjoyed a 4 night stay at the castle by the sea. Fantastic hosts, I'd say the best hospitality we've ever had.... It's got to be 5*! Homemade cakes, scones and tarts in the tea rooms, absolutely fantastic!! The views are spectacular! Breakfast was of good quality and generous. Rooms are very cosy with flat screen TV and tea making facilities. Would highly recommend, I would advise booking early though as demand seems to increasing. We will be back soon!
