My son and I came to Scarborough for a week this year and stayed at The Almar, what a fantastic stay we had. Jamie and Michelle are fabulous hosts and make you feel so welcome. Breakfast was first class as usual and servings were very generous, nothing was to much for Jamie and his staff On a personal note my son is autistic and ADHD and Jamie, Michelle and his staff made him so welcome and comfortable that it made our stay so much easier... A five star hotel and without a doubt I will be returning.

Had a great time staying in the Almar for my birthday weekend. I visit Scarborough regular and this is without doubt the best place I've stayed while over there. Very friendly staff and Jamie is a top host! Room offered exactly as I needed (bed, TV, coffee, toilet, shower) and was all clean / well kept. Will certainly be booking again in the future

We came to Scarborough to celebrate fifty years of going out together and being married for 47 of them. Jamie, Michelle and the rest of the staff made us feel really welcome. They were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our room and en suite were of a high standard and very comfortable. The choice of breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed our evening meals at a nearby local restaurant. The location of the hotel could not be better being near the South Bay amenities, the town centre a leisurely walk or a bus ride away. It was a great pleasure to stay at The Almar and look forward to staying there again.

Had a very impressive stay at this hotel and would happily recommend it to anyone. The welcome from Jamie & Michelle was first class, the room had everything needed and was spotlessly clean and the breakfast excellent. Its in a good location with parking bays outside and I wouldn't hesitate in booking to return on our next stop over in Scarborough, especially given the excellent value of the stay. The only difference we might make is we will probably stop longer next time!
