I stayed in the 'small single'. And it is small but has its own en suite bathroom.
An excellent breakfast and a clean room. What more can you want for £20?
All the staff are friendly and the whole place is spotless. Great location too.

If there is a better Scarborough B&B then I'd be amazed.

I have been staying at the Almar for years and I've never been disappointed with any aspect of our stay, Jamie and Michelle are extremely helpful and make you feel very welcome even for us hairy bikers going to Oliver Mount for the races. Rooms are very clean and tidy with tea, coffee and biscuits, breakfast has never left me feeling hungry. The Almar is close enough to some good places to eat and drink by foot if you didn't want to drive and Scarborough sea front is close too, I would highly recommend the Almar to anyone, it great value for money.

I have had the pleasure to stay regularly at the Almar - and it has been a pleasure - and in doing so, I have had the opportunity to stay in different rooms on different occasions. Each room has been finished and furnished to a very high standard, is spotless and fresh, and the attention to detail is above and beyond what I was expecting on my first visit - though with all of the good reviews that I had already read about the Almar, I should have known it was something special. But what makes the Almar truly unique, and a truly fantastic experience is the staff - Jamie and all at the Almar are so friendly, welcoming and accommodating, it truly makes you feel special.. And the breakfasts are to die for!

Stayed at the ALMAR recently whilst on a golf trip. I was given a courtesy call the evening before I was due to arrive to make sure all was still in order. On arrival Jamie's welcome is as warm and friendly as it gets. You immediately feel a rapport which all helps you settle in quickly. Unbeknown to me I had booked the "small" single room and small it was. That said, it is perfectly adequate the only real negative being the lack of space perhaps for luggage. This is actually no problem as Jamie is perfectly happy to store larger objects, (eg Golf clubs) in his own personal room space. The room itself was spotless with its own en suite and has a good amount of storage for clothes etc. The breakfast Jamie provides is excellent. It is so good to get a cooked breakfast without any excess oil or grease on the plate. It was always piping hot too, just what one wants. There is always a good selection of cereals and juices on offer as well.
Should I ever return to Scarborough the ALMAR will be my first phone call. Thanks Jamie and Michelle..

Even if I wanted to I couldn't find fault with The Almar. Jamie, Michelle and his staff made us feel very welcome from the second we arrived and couldn't do enough for us. Our room, like the rest of the hotel, was spotless.
The breakfast was second to none and the staff were very friendly and professional. The evening chats in the bar with Jamie and other guests were also very pleasant.
Would we recommend it? Absolutely.
Will we visit again? Can't wait.
