We stayed for one night to go to a concert at the open air theatre which is literally a 5 minute walk away, the main town is a 10 minute walk so very convenient location.

We stayed in a twin room which was lovely and clean, perfect for what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was gorgeous, breakfast was also served at two different times which for me who likes a lie in I found very good. There are 3 free car parking spaces on a first come first serve basis, we got there for 3pm and managed to get a space, however, if there is no space you can park on the street for I think £1.60 which is a bargain given the location.

All in all our stay was lovely and I would definitely stay at this B&B again :-)

Room was very comfortable --nicely decorated -we only stayed for one night but Joel was very informative on our arrival --and the breakfast before we left was fantastic --Jamie and Michelle were very attentive and nothing seemed a bother --if in Scarborough again would not look any further than the Almar

The Almar was a fantastic place to stay.. Staff were polite considerate and helpful. The room was cleaned everyday to a great standard, clean towels every single day..Breakfast was so good as well and nothing was to much trouble. My son who is autistic and has special needs was made to feel so welcome and that was fantastic for us, it made the stay so easy.. Ideally placed for the attractions we wanted to go to, and found it very easy to get to the town centre.. I would recommend The Almar to anyone who wanted to stay in Scarborough.. A ***** review.

My regular B and B in Scarborough which I visit 6 times a year or so. Helpful, convenient, a really good breakfast (even for a greedy one like me) so excellent value for money. Rooms quiet even at front and free wifi enables me to work in the evening too, I've tried a few others nearby but this is the best.

This was our second stay at The Almar and we'll definitely be going back! Jamie, Joel and Michelle were friendly and very helpful with our two young children for the three nights we spent there. Everything was clean and tidy and the breakfast, in both quality and selection, is as good as we've had anywhere. The location couldn't be better with Peasholm Park on our doorstep and the beach a short stroll away. We can't speak highly enough of the place and have recommended The Almar to all our friends. Keep up the good work and thanks for helping make our first family holiday so memorable. Jamie, Michelle, Sid and Seth

Just stayed in the Almar from 24th to 27thJuly. Don't normally write reviews but felt i needed to say how good this b&b is. Have stayed in many b&b's over many years but this probably the best we have stayed in. The welcome, service and breakfasts were 'top class'. Very comfortable room and although en-suite was small it was perfectly acceptable for our needs.Room tariff was a bargain and would like to thank Jamie,Joel and Michelle for an enjoyable short break and will be returning again in the future. Highly recommended.
Many thanks Neil and Mandy
