“Made to feel welcome from start to finish”
Reviewed 20 September 2010

On arriving at The Almar we could not find parking,there wasn't enough space but we was pleased to be greeted by the couple,rather than one owner or a member of staff.They were friendly and helped us with parking.
The rooms,as well as the rest of the building was very clean and tidy with a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere.Our room was well supplied with towels and we was shown how to use the facillities.
The breakfast was wonderful.Local produce with plenty of cereal and juice on offer.The owners were only too pleased to help us with ideas on places to go and gave us a quick guide to the area,buses,closing times,etc.
Upon leaving we were seen off and that made the trip more personal and welcoming.
I would highly reccommend this place,it's close to the beach and all you need.The owners are a wonderful couple who put their customers needs first.

Good location, ideal for getting to the cricket, Peasholme Park, Scalby Mills and the beach. Lovely people, very helpful. Nice clean rooms. Excellent breakfast - especially the bacon!

The bedrooms are very clean and tidy, even if they are not the biggest.

The owners are very helpful and kind and give very good information about the town and its attractions.

Breakfast was tastey and promptly served.

We have just got back from a 3 night stay at the Almar. From booking the room, to a very warm welcome and being helped with our bags, nothing was too much trouble for Bev and Phil. Breakfast was (very) tasty, prompt, with plenty of food provided and even the offer of more tea and toast. Room 2 was lovely, with a beautiful bay window, spotless room and new furniture. We just can't wait to go back! Thanks so much for a perfect stay!
