Just got back from a 4 night stay at The Almar where we were made very welcome from the moment we walked in. Immaculately clean, lovely room, excellent breakfast. Jaimie was more than helpful telling us best places to eat drink etc made our stay as good as it could be. Will be staying there again whenever we go back to Scarborough and definitely recommend to any friends that are thinking of a short break in Scarborough. Thank you Jaimie and Michelle, see you again probably next summer. Cheers xx Jill and Chris

From the moment we got there we were looked after.. Jamie told us the best spots to go to for food, drinks, etc... The room was on the 2nd floor and spotless... Bed was comfy and sleep came easily after walking round Scarborough... This was our first time staying here and I can say we will definitely returning... Jamie's breakfast was amazing and set us up for the day, highly recommended is the Full English... All said I would have (and will have) no hesitation in recommending The Almar to anyone who wants to stay in Scarborough...

We have just today returned from a fantastic 3 night (was 2 but we extended it for another night) stay at The Almar. A warm and welcoming guest house close to the North Bay of Scarborough, with South Bay a 20 min amble away. Jamie, Michelle, Stacey and staff make sure your every need is catered for from the minute you walk through the door until you say "see you next time!" We had a triple family room which was clean, comfortable, roomy and suited our needs for our stay. Each morning you are given the best start to the day with a freshly cooked hearty breakfast made to order...or for those that want something lighter fruit, cereals and toast are available. Parking is limited, however you can purchase road parking permits from Jamie or Michelle from the hotel for next to nothing! Plenty of restaurants close buy with all the fun of the Scarborough Fair close by. To say we will most definitely return is an understatement I brought back leaflets to recommend to work colleagues! Perfect hotel whether it a short stay or longer with the perfect hosts running it! We will be returning next year with our daughters again!

The perfect place to stay in Scarborough. A warm welcome guaranteed. Friendly, attentive staff. Modern and clean rooms - we had a family room with a double and single bed, perfect for what we needed. Good location for the waterfront. Superb breakfast. Highly recommended.
